1 2

Whether you are wanting to take a trip abroad or visit a new part of the country, travelling is a great adventure and we are lucky to have so many variations of transport to choose from. However, journeys can be delayed or even cancelled, and if travelling with kids, your dream break away could become a nightmare.

If you will be travelling with kids in the near future, you may want to make a note of these top 10 tips:

 

1. Be prepared with some inexpensive wrapped toys

Will your journey take in excess of three hours? If so then we recommend that you come prepared with some inexpensive wrapped toys. Every hour or so, give your toddler a gift to unwrap and they will be entertained throughout the journey.

 

2. Have a tablet with you

Have a tablet with you and download a couple of apps that are sure will entertain your kids. The amount of apps will depend on the duration of the journey and your kids’ attention span. If flying, make sure you have the tablet on flight mode.

 

3. Be prepared with bottles

Babies need regular feeding and coming prepared with bottles premade with milk powder will save you time. There are some mixtures that can be made up using mineral water. However, if you want hot milk, you can find travel milk warmers in most shops.

 

4. Have a window shade

When travelling in the car have a window shade to help your kids sleep. It could also be a good idea to see what toys can be clipped onto the car seat to keep them occupied.

 

5. Always bring a potty with you

Car journeys can be a nightmare when your little one wants to constantly go, so be prepared – having a potty with you will also make your child feel more comfortable.
