Travel with kids needn’t be a hassle and it can be one of the best experiences you have as a family.
The key ingredients to a smooth trip when traveling with kids are to pay attention to their needs, and find the right balance between rest time and activities..
Bored and overtired children become cranky and frustrated kids in a hurry.
Whilst our style of travel has evolved throughout the years from being solo travelers, to a couple, and now a family travel, there are some core travel habits that have served us well, and we continue to follow them to this day.
25 TIPS FOR TRAVEL WITH KIDS
1. Slow Down
Plan for a slower pace than you might usually attempt if solo or as a couple. Be realistic about what you can see and do when traveling with kids. Don’t try to cram too much into your itinerary. The less you feel you have to see, the more enjoyable and stress-free for everyone.
For the most part, the pace of the trip should be set to what your youngest child can handle. Build into your agenda time for stops along the way for bathroom breaks, snack breaks, and nap time. If you can avoid cranky children it will make for a much more pleasant family travel experience.
