When planning a family vacation, there are many different aspects to take into consideration. From the travel plans to accommodations, how to keep the kids happy, and not stress yourself out during the process. In today’s blog, we will be going over a few helpful tips and tricks to making vacation planning with your kiddos a breeze.
Book Far in Advance
The further you plan and book your travels in advance, not only will you be more likely to snag better deals, but you will also be much more likely to get seats together on airplanes. You will also have better rental car options, preferred hotels or luxury vacation homes, and so forth. Like the saying goes, “The early bird gets the worm.”
Aim to Travel in the Late Morning or Early Afternoon
If you are able to, avoid selecting the early morning or late-night departure times for flights, and instead aim to travel between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. in whatever time zone you are in. This way, you won’t be forced to scramble early in the morning, and you are much more likely to miss the busiest times at the airports. Not only are the airports typically less busy, but the flights are usually cheaper around midday — it’s a win-win for everyone!
Opt for a Larger Location With Plenty of Amenities
When it comes to traveling with the family, nothing can make it feel less relaxing than being crammed into a small space and not having any room to breathe, even if it is with those you love. Having some time to yourself can be a very valuable part of a vacation, and even if you aren’t completely alone, having enough space for everyone to comfortably do their thing is a must. A place such as Ketsali in Latin America offers luxury vacation homes for rent for families who are looking for an incredible getaway to magical cities where they can make memories that will last a lifetime. While they are large vacation homes, they still make you feel close with those you are traveling with.
Don’t Forget the Entertainment
Children of all ages will need something to keep them busy while they wait at the airport, on the flight, on the bus, etc. For babies, simple items like blue painters tape or finger puppets can keep them entertained for hours. If you have a toddler, there are some great options out there for portable art sets, magnetic drawing boards, books, and so forth. Older children, on the other hand, will likely want electronics. Since this is a family vacation, we suggest putting those away as much as possible (unless you are watching a movie together on the plane), and opting for things like books or cards that they can play with you! The options are truly endless, but it is something you definitely won’t want to forget while traveling with kids.
