-then be prepared to through the whole thing out, you are now travelling with children.  Flexibility is the key!!!

Research your family holiday

Research your:

  • Destination
    • Where are you going?
    • What are you going to see and do when you get there?  Limit the number of activities to one in the morning and one in the afternoon for toddlers and young children.  Schedule adult attractions for nap times in strollers and for older children build games into these attractions eg. can you find…?
    • How are you going to get there?  Car hire, Public transport (most cities will have a website about their transport system) or by foot (will you need a stroller or seat backpack?).
    • Find activities for ALL your children to enjoy.
  • Accommodation
  • Transport
  • If your children are older involve them in the research process to help them get enthused about the trip and learn what they would like to do whilst on holiday.

Try and book your flights, accommodation, cruises, rail and car hire as soon as possible to allow for the best choice.  Signup for newsletter and and follow your holiday preferences on Facebook to learn when they are offering discounts.

Assume the worst and prepare for it!  Anything can happen from sickness and injury, to lost luggage and transport breakdowns.
