With Covid-19 restrictions being lifted and family holidays becoming acceptable once again you might be wondering where you can go. You might have already had a holiday booked when covid put an end to those plans. This could have been rearranged numerous times. If you didn’t give in or have booked to go elsewhere then take a look at this guide. It gives you advice on how to travel well with children.


First and foremost if you haven’t already done so you need to decide where you are going to go. This could be your children’s first family holiday abroad so you want to make it extra special. Part of making it special is ensuring the travel part runs smoothly with no hiccups or annoyed children. You will need to explain to them that there may be a wait at the airport or for the coach for example. 

As a family, you need to decide which type of holiday you would like to go on. There are so many choices when it comes to this. You could go on a cruise, there are special ones for families with entertainment galore. On a ski holiday, you could teach your children a new skill while having amazing bonding time. You could rent a catered ski chalet close to the slopes. A beach holiday because who doesn’t love the sea and sand. You could also choose a city break, showing your children different cities around the world.  

How To Get There

Once you have decided where you are going you need to figure out the best way to get there. You need to think about what is best for your family, you might want to take the quickest option which may well be a plane. However, if you aren’t sure how your children will cope with that or you already know they don’t like planes then you can plan other ways to get there. For example, if your holiday destination isn’t too far you could drive there. This works in places like Europe where you can take your car on the Eurostar. Another option is a boat, if you know your children won’t like flying and you don’t mind adding some time on then a boat is a great option. 

Another option is to travel by motorhome. After the pandemic, there was a rise in staycations since travel abroad had restrictions. Motorhomes pose as a means for travel, a place to sleep, and a place to dine. They can make family holidays a lot easier. Just remember to pack all your holiday essentials and take out motorhome insurance before travelling.


Now you need to think about how you can keep your little darlings entertained on the way there. It could be a while before you are at your destination especially if you have to wait for transfers. You will need to pack things you know your children enjoy playing with including any snacks to keep them going while you travel. If you are flying you need to be aware that certain items can’t be taken on planes. 

You can also buy specially made travel packs for children, these include different activities to keep them amused on the journey. You can buy them online and you select their gender and age then the pack is sent through to you. Make sure you leave enough time for them to be posted and arrive.

We hope you found this article helpful and you have an amazing holiday with your family.
