Are you thinking about planning your first holiday with the kids? Whether they’re under the age of two, or you’ve put off going anywhere until they can at least remember some of the holidays in their later years, going on a holiday with kids is a lot different than doing it as a couple.
With that being said, here are some top tips to make your first holiday with the kids a relaxed one.
Hire Taxi transfers
If you can afford to do so, it might be worthwhile hiring a taxi transfer to and from the airports you’re travelling to. While it might be cheaper to take public transport or drive, that is only going to add additional stress that you could ultimately avoid.
With airport taxi transfers, they have all of the space available to get you and your loved ones, to and from the airport with ease. There’s no need to worry about getting transport at a specific time, especially when you can book an airport transfer taxi to arrive when you need it to.
If you’ve never tried this type of service before for a holiday trip, then it’s definitely worth exploring.
Pick an all-inclusive holiday package
Before going on your holiday, consider what type of board is most appropriate for you and your family. For those with young kids and those who are super fussy, it makes the most sense to opt for an all-inclusive holiday package.
With all-inclusive, all of your drinks and food will be covered. From breakfast, lunch to dinner and snacks in between, there’s no need to worry about making sure your children are well fed. It often works out a lot cheaper than going half-board or self-catering too.
Ensure all passports are up to date and print off documents
To help speed up processes like security and checking in to your flight, make sure all of your passports are up to date and in a document holder for when you travel to the airport. Be sure to print off all of your documents, just in case your phone or tablet device were to suddenly stop working.
It’s the little things like this that will make the travel parts of the holiday, a lot less stressful as the parent.
Prepare with some in-flight entertainment
In-flight entertainment is a godsend when you have kids that can get a bit niggly just from sitting about. When you’re on a plan for a child, it’s an experience that might feel a bit odd. With that being said, it’s good to make sure they’re distracted.
Tag team your attention on the children
Finally, to help provide a little relaxation to all adults on the holiday, make sure you’re tag-teaming your attention on the children. That way, at least at some points in the holiday, you’re both getting some R&R time.
There are more responsibilities, more costs involved and most of the time, you won’t be able to fully relax when on holiday. However, it’s an experience that if you can give to your kids, is worth doing.
