Everyone needs to make sure that when they spend time on holiday with their family that they have the best time possible. The holidays is probably the most time that you will spend uninterrupted with your family, they will last long in the memory and be treasured forever. With such little quality time available these days we need to do everything in our power to have a perfect time. Family holidays are usually an annual event, so I am sure lots of you have a lot of experience and also some great tips to share with us. If you do have some essential tips that you think need to be shared then tell us all by commenting below underneath this article. Here are my tips that every family should follow to have a great holiday:
Ask as many questions as you can think of
You should be asking questions the whole time during the booking process and do not confirm your booking until you are happy that all of your questions have been answered. The people to ask are either the tour operator, hotel or airline. I think most of the questions should be focused on the accommodation; the size of your room, babysitting facilities, activities and whether it is a family hotel. Sometimes you will get great reductions with certain airlines if you are travelling with children, so read up about which ones offer the best deals and book with them.
Bring things that will keep the kids happy
We all know which things our kids treasure, it could be that little pink blanket or even a favourite teddy bear. You must bring a long the one thing that they can’t live without, but you also need to bring things along with you that will keep them entertained. It’s a great idea to bring a long some small board games, books and even DVDs with you. They will be a life saver when you kids ever get restless or just want a lazy day in your hotel room.
Don’t bring all the big stuff
If you plan to bring buggies or cots with you then forget about it. They will take up so much of the baggage allowance given to you by the airline that it really doesn’t make any sense at all. You may even end up having to pay more to bring these bulky items along with you. Instead you should be looking at hiring these essential items when you arrive, give the hotel a call to see what is possible. It will make life a lot easier if you can pick these things up at your destination.
