5 Tips – Happy Kid Travels!

We have one more month to travel with our kids before school starts. What do your plans include?  We hope these helpful tips make your trip more enjoyable!

Top 5 tips for traveling with kids;

kids travel 1Rest = happy traveler             Get good rest leading up to departure. There is nothing worse than tired grumpy travelers.

Comfort = happy traveler   Dress comfortable and in layers. If you have an infant pack pacifiers and bottles. This helps their ears adjust to cabin pressure.

Time = happy traveler           Give yourself plenty of time to check in and get to the gate. Running through the airport with three kids in tow is not fun! If it’s a road trip you’re on, expect more frequent stops for kids to stretch and play.

Entertainment = happy traveler                                                                                Have a magic bag of tricks : Each kid has their own special back pack with snacks, chewing gum or gummy bears (to help ears adjust to cabin pressure) , electronics (iPod, iPad, or Leapster), a good book, a small blanket or pillow. Our 4 year old likes a color book and crayons. Also some kids may have anxiety about flying. Pack a favorite toy or stuffed animal to comfort them. These items are also nice for down time in the hotel room.

Adventure = happy traveler                                                                                       Talk about your trip, calling it “Your Adventure” ; where are we going , what kind of travel adventure do they want ? Some kids like to know what to expect, it helps ease any anxiety they may have about their upcoming travel.

If your family needs help planning a getaway don’t hesitate to call us. We would be glad to get your adventure started.
