Travelling with Kids

Travelling with Kids can be challenging, but with careful planning you can have a really enjoyable family holiday.  Here are some tips our Travel Specialist suggest:
 

  • Packing to cater for children is essential.  We suggest you include , food, drink, toys, books, games, wet wips, and a change of clothes for the flight.   Food & drink at airports is generally expensive.
  • Items such as prams, strollers, cots and high chairs in most cases can be hired rather than lugging them with you.
  • We also suggest a simple medical kit and motion sickness medication.
  • Allow extra time for airport check-in and ask if your flight is full when checking in. Some airlines may block off a seat next to you which is particularly useful if travelling with infants.
  • Look out for fast track customs and immigration check points for those traveling with infants.
  • Find out as much as possible about the destination and accommodation.   In some cases a self-contained apartment may be more convenient than a hotel.   This can also save you money with self-catering some of your meals.  
  • Strange places can upset small children, so be sure to bring something that reminds them of home, like a cuddly toy or blanket.
