We have listed the 12 main family tips you need to know when packing for a family trip:
Assist your kids when packing
It may seem interesting when your children start packing for the awaited tour. However, ensure you go through whatever they put in their bags because their jovial excitement,might lead them leaving very important items for their safari.
Choose exiting destinations
Your kids will be bored if your touring is more of hiking. Children don’t like walking for so long. Choose destinations that are children friendly which won’t make them feel bored and fatigued in the early days of your travel. National parks, museums and beaches are among the places many children prefer.
Understand the history of your destination
Remember kids are good in asking questions. Your kid will ask you, “Daddy what is that called”? or “Mommy who owns that thing?” These are some of the questions your kids will have to ask. Be knowledgeable about the history of your destination and most importantly the places you have chosen to visit. Otherwise you might let your kids assume you don’t know anything and this might somehow cut-short their thirst for knowledge.
Keep your kids busy
Whether it’s during the flight or when you are relaxing somewhere viewing the city, kids are easily bored. Therefore make sure you are well equipped with a series of activities planned out. Carry storybooks or coloring books, kid-friendly games on tabs or IPod touch to play videos, listen to music or even watch movies. This will keep your kids active and in a jovial mood.
Pre-plan your tour
Planning is not an option but a must in every traveler’s itinerary. Failure to plan well in advance brings regrets and unnecessary wishes during and after the travel. Ask yourself questions like: “where do I want to go”, “will my family really have fun?” “Will my kids love the touring places”? Answers to such queries can aid in determining whether you are readily prepared for the family adventure.
Carry your Medicines / First aid kit
The assumption that all will be very fine out there should not be firmly inclined into your mind. Minor accidents may happen during the travel and having your first aid kit can really help. Environmental changes affect many people and your children are not exceptional. So you need to have your drugsready just in case one falls sick.
Interact with Locals
Locals know much about their country or city. Mingle with them once in a while and ask them some tough questions that your kids might be demanding answers. Also through this interaction, create a list of friends from that specific destination.
Don’t forget to carry Nappies
Although you can buy them later on if you happen to forget, let baby nappies be the first item you’ll think when packing. Why should you spend your money to buy something that you already have in your house? Pack/place them on top of the other clothes because you can need them anytime, anywhere!
Learn local’s Language
Teach your kids and yourself to speak the basic language words of the country you are traveling. Words like “Thank you”, “Excuse me, “where can I get this” will be appreciated by the locals.
Have a Travel Insurance
It is always very important to have a travel insurance just in case something unwanted happens to you in the travelling country. Most travel insurances will cater for your money in case they get lost, medical treatment if you become sick, hearse transportation and arrangement just in case you…God forbid!
Register with your Embassy
If there’s a problem in the country, this will make it easier for your government to contact you and your family and get you to safety.
Book your hotel at Central places
Lodging in a hotel near or in the city is safe and secure. Moreover, it helps in minimizing the transport costs you would incur moving from your lodging place to the city. Kids love walking down the streets gazing at beautiful scenes. Lodging away from the city might reduce your kid’s precious time of viewing attracting sites or playing in the bouncing-castles.
So next time you have a family vacation, these tips will really help you.
