Simple Travel Tips for Families

Travelling with the family can be very exciting, if not a little stressful. When you’re all travelling together, tensions can run a little high. You can get stressed and worry about the littlest thing. Worry no more! This guide will give you some simple tips to have an amazing time and stop worrying on your trip!

MAKE A LIST BEFORE PACKING

Before you start packing for your trip, make a list. Make a list for each family member, and list items in categories so you know you have everything you could possibly need. Making a list in advance will make it less likely that you’ll forget something. You also have something to check off against as you’re packing to leave. The feeling of forgetting something is the worst, but with a list you don’t need to worry.

TAKE EMERGENCY NUMBERS AND KITS

Make sure you take any emergency numbers you might need. Write these down in a notebook, or somewhere you will always be able to access them. Write down any family numbers you might need, and even emergency numbers for the place you’re visiting. It’s also wise to pack a small emergency kit for each family member. This kit could contain a drink/snack, toothbrush, and anything else they might need at a moment’s notice. It’s probably a good idea to take a first aid kit with you too.

STAY IN THE COUNTRY


There’s no need to travel out of the country each time you go away. Families can find so many things to do back home. You could visit Blackpool with its theme parks and other attractions. You could even go somewhere like Bath, full of pretty sights to see. Explore your own country and you might be surprised at the fun you can have!


DO SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

Make sure you do something for everybody on your trip. Ask if there’s anything they’d like to do and try to include it. Making sure you do something everybody enjoys will make it a memorable trip for all.

GET YOUR KIDS TO KEEP A TRAVEL DIARY

Why not get the kids to keep a travel diary? This will give them something to do when they might not have anything to keep them entertained. It’ll also be great to look at it and see it from their point of view! They can look back at this for years to come and remember all of the great things you did as a family.

DON'T BE AFRAID TO GET LOST

Getting lost in a new place might sound scary, but it’s a great way to explore! Getting lost together and exploring a new place will always bring you closer together.

LEARN A FEW PHRASES

If you’re going out of the country, learn a few phrases to help you get around. Encourage the kids to do it too!

Use these simple travel tips next time you plan something for your family and you’ll have the best time. There’s no need to overcomplicate things - just go along and see what fun you can have together!
