Tips for travelling with children
Being ill abroad – It can happen. Make sure you have the correct travel insurance before travelling. Do some research on the country you are visiting to see if you need specific injections before you go. Talk to your doctor. Google ‘Travel Abroad’ and look for Government websites that cover all the basics.
Travelling with kids – Think about what it’s going to be like for you and them before you book. Is a two week mountain trekking holiday really going to work with a 3 month old baby? Look for holidays where you can all get the kind of rest and fun that you need! Make sure that you have snacks and pocket activities for time waiting at airports or for the car.
Go with another family – Do you know a family that you could holiday with? Do you all get on? Do your kids get on? If you do, this can be a great way of keeping the kids happy and having shared child care and adult time.
