Traveling with kids is very different from traveling by yourself. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to make the whole process go more smoothly. If you’ll be traveling with kids in 2019 here some top tips to make it less stressful:
When you’re traveling alone, you’ve got plenty of time to decide what you want to do when you’re on the ground. Unfortunately, kids don’t work this way. You need to work around nap time, tantrums, snacks, and moods. But it’s why it’s well worth planning in advance. Going to Florida? Be sure to get your Disney tickets online before you go. Planning to fly internationally? Choose the best possible flights based on when your kids need to sleep and eat.
Let them choose
You probably wouldn’t like it if you were on vacation and never got to choose what you wanted to do, right? Unfortunately, this is how kids must feel when we take them on vacation. If you want your kids to be well-behaved and happy on vacation, let them choose an activity or two that they would like to do. This can be great when you’re planning the trip, as it gets the whole family excited, and the kids are more likely to be good for other activities since there’s is coming up.
Hire a car
Without a car, you’re at the mercy of public transportation, or rides sharing services like Uber and Lyft This can make life much more difficult, especially if you’re traveling with topless. If you’re hoping to make your vacation as stress-free as possible, make sure you hire a car so you can get around and get back to the hotel in time for your kid’s naps.
When you hire a car, you can pick it up from the airport, go straight to your hotel, or go out to explore- without any drama. It’s also a lot more cost-effective- especially if you’re traveling with a large family.
Take it easy
You probably want your kids to see and do as many things as possible on their vacation, right? Unfortunately, this is a pretty good way to ensure they get tired and throw tantrums. Instead, for every jam-packed day, follow it up with a day at the hotel enjoying the pool. This way, everyone will get to relax, and your kids won’t rebel next time you want to take them somewhere.
