1.Doctors and Hospitals
When travelling abroad with children, it’s best to ask the resorts or hotels that you are staying at where access to emergency hospitals and medical clinics are around the accommodation area.
Small kids are unpredictable especially in different climates, so you never know when you need medication or doctor services.
It’s better to be prepared for small scrapes and bites so always take a basic first aid kit on vacation and one a little more comprehensive if you are taking children with you.
2. Sleeping Arrangements
Many children may have trouble sleeping in strange beds so take along a teddy bear, familiar blanket or bedding which will make them feel at home.
This is something that slips most parents mind so make a mental note of that.
3. Activities and Tours
Investigate activities and sightseeing tours that will interest everyone and keep the children occupied and happy at the destinations you choose.
Although the children will spend most of their time enjoying swimming at the beaches and the pool there are many other fun activities for the whole family and you can discuss with everyone what they would like to do suitable for their age groups.
Most tourism destinations offer a wide range of adventure tours, water sports, sightseeing, water theme parks and family suitable entertainment.
You can also ask the hotel and resort what is currently available and they will always be glad to help.
4. Packing and Luggage
Pack sufficient changes of clothes for children and of course bathing suits and high strength sunblock when you travel abroad.
You need to have comfortable outfits for the day, when it is warm and sunny and always add a few thicker items and jackets for the evenings, in case it gets chilly.
If you want to enjoy fun walks on the beach by night when its cooler you will need suitable clothing to dress your children properly. However, in the case of clothing, you can always locally buy items as needed.
5.Travelling: Air and Road
If this is your first time taking children on flights be aware that many children can feel ill or stressed so consider taking suitable medication along and letting air hostesses know too.
For long trips by road some children can also get car sick, so be prepared for this event.
Allow more time than needed for touring drives and sightseeing between towns and cities because you never know when you need to stop for a little while to allow the little ones to recover a little bit.
Always have several sick bags at hand in the plane and for the road trips. Keep them readily handy for little mishaps.
Make a list of things to do for family holidays travelling abroad with children, when you have properly organized your trips the whole family will be as relaxed.
6.Documents and Cash
Make sure that all your travel documents are kept safely in a mini travel wallet or bag that you keep at all times. A smart tip is to make THREE copies of all your documents.
One you can leave with friends to courier to you if you lose the other two and the other copy can be carried by your spouse in case you lose the originals.
For holiday cash check the rate of exchange and carry local currency as well as your own currency split between you and your spouse or partner.
Check and double-check accommodation bookings and flight times and make sure that you leave well before the time. It is better to be very early than just in time because you never know what happens with traffic on the way to the airports.
