Important Things Parent’s Should Never Forget When Travelling With Kids

Cheap holidays are a great way to enjoy some family time and a much deserved rest but the preparation and travelling part isn’t always quite as fun.

Preparation is key to ensure you are ready for any eventuality.

I always travel with paracetamol in case any illness occurs. The one year we failed to do this the inevitable happened and Joe was poorly, resulting in very expensive taxi trips to a chemist to source temperature reducing medicine.

It is also important to check the advice for area you are visiting. Are there any vaccination requirements for the region?

First aid kit

A travel sized first aid kit should come equipped with bandages, plasters and antiseptic wipes. Providing reassurance when you’re travelling to unfamiliar places. It will keep the little ones happy if they have a minor accident or fall.

Travelling can be made much easier for all involved with these handy items. A few of these should keep the whole family relaxed and in a great mood to begin the holiday of a lifetime or even just a cheeky getaway.

For those with smaller children, it can be stressful and not the best start to a relaxing break. To overcome potential tantrums and make the journey as easy as possible, pack these essential items.

It so important to keep kids occupied on journeys, this is why we invented the Christie family holiday survival kit.
