How to Make Your Travel Experience Easier and More Enjoyableby Ian Cooper Family Holiday Specialist
Lisa Allan from the Family Holiday Specialists provides her tips on how to make your travel experience easier and more enjoyable
1. Holiday Games – Game ideas that families can enjoy while in the car/aeroplane or at their holiday destination (e.g. I Spy etc.)
For my family, “Spotto” is always a winner- this is where you have to spot all the yellow cars during your road trip and one of the kids has to keep the tally throughout the holiday to find out the overall winner at the end of the trip. A simple game guaranteed to keep them busy!
2. Travel Tips – how to you make the road trip or flight easier. How do you get your family packed and ready?
We always advise families going on big road trips, that they should try and avoid driving overly long distances and to take regular breaks, ideally stopping every 4 hours to do some sightseeing or even do an overnight stop to break up the trip and see different places.
If you have younger children then it’s always better to book overnight flights so the kids can get some sleep on the flight and still stay in their normal sleep patterns. Similar to road trips, it is best to have a stopover especially on long haul flights to Europe or USA. It is a particularly good idea to do the stopover on the home leg of the journey and in my experience, it’s better to do a stopover in a beach resort as opposed to a city stopover as this gives you and the family time to relax and slow down before you get home and back into work life and school routine, it’s nice to have that family time to reflect on your holiday.
