Travel Tips for Family Holidays

  • Make it a family decision. Get the kids to help choose the destination. You can explore a map together and get them excited about the family holiday. 
  • If you’re going to be doing a lot of walking on your holiday remember not to overdo it for the little ones.  
  • Discuss with your partner beforehand about time for yourselves. If this is a high priority a resort holiday with childcare facilities might be the perfect answer for you. 
  • If you’re travelling to an exotic location make sure you book the doctor’s appointment in advance for the necessary injections or medication required. 
  • Pack a medical kit with you. Your family will thank you when you’re prepared with pain-killers, plasters, antihistamine cream and tweezers. 
  • Travel insurance is vital. Make sure it covers medical treatment, repatriation, belongings and cancellations. 
  • Always have water and a snack prepared for your kids to help make a long journey a little easier. A nap will go a long way too. 
  • Take photos of your travel documents just incase you lose anything. Send these pics to a family member or friend not travelling with you should your phone get lost or stolen too. 
  • Take your children’s birth certificates with you (especially if they have a different surname to you) as it can help make things easier at border controls. 
  • Most of all remember to have fun and enjoy yourselves.
