10 Tips to Make Traveling with Children Easy

  1. Pick a holiday everyone will enjoy:  Find a holiday that offers something for everyone.  Talk to travel agents with experience in planning family holidays.  They always have great tips and advice.
  2. Set realistic expectations:  Like it or not, children have certain limitations.  Don’t push them beyond their physical or mental limits.  So a tough trek will not work with a child in tow.  Think like a child.  Find activities that they’ll enjoy and also give you the time to do things you want.
  3. Plan well:  Planning the trip well right from the start will save time and also avoid nasty surprises.  Check if any vaccinations are required, where good medical help is available and if travelling with an infant, essentials like formula and diapers.  Make sure that passports have the required validity for visas before applying.  Be prepared with travel and medical insurance.
  4. Get information:  Before making hotel bookings, get details on hotel amenities and nearby locational information.  Most hotels in the best holiday destinations offer a host of services and amenities for child care.  If it has a pool or there are shopping areas close by, even better.
  5. Coordinate travels:  Try to minimise waiting time if you have to change flights.  Check on airline restrictions and policies. 
  6. Carry distractions:  This is a big part of planning a family holiday.  Pack their favourite toys and colouring books.  Don’t forget to pack extra clothes in case there are accidents.
  7. Save on excess baggage:  Instead of lugging around cumbersome things like strollers and car seats, check if the hotel offers this service.  If you have an infant, pop him in a backpack baby carrier.  It’ll keep you hands-free.
  8. Grown-up time:  If the hotel offers baby-sitting services, use them.  If you’re travelling in a group, get another couple to watch the kids.  Getting away will give you a breather.  Your kids will love it too. 
  9. Know your child’s personality:  Being aware of how each kid handles a situation will help make the journey easier.  Take along a few things that they enjoy to keep them busy and happy.
  10. Learn from experience:  If you are doing your own bookings, check out reviews from other people who have done the same trip with families.  There is bound to be advice on what to take along for food, how to make friends and more.  You could also crank up the excitement by involving your kids and asking them to gather information about the place.
