Even the most seasoned travelers know that going anywhere with the family along brings a new level of stress to any trip. More bags, more people and more money equals more problems. Here are just a few tips from Bags to help make a vacation with the whole family a little easier on you and on them:
Only the Essentials
Skip the frills on a family trip. The more you bring with you, the more you have to carry and keep up with during your trip.
While packing light its good, packing smart is better. Always expect the unexpected and have essentials in your carry on, like diapers, wipes, medications, a change of clothes and snacks.
Bring the Fun
Vacations are fun, but traveling is boring. Make sure to bring entertainment for everyone. Backpacks for each child are a great way to make sure that everyone in the family gets to bring their chosen toy or game.
Car seats do not count as checked luggage on any airline. You will not be charged. Get yourself a durable car seat cover and check it for your trip.
Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
Being open, understanding, and above all flexible will always make your trip smoother. Lines will be long, traffic will be heavy, flights will be delayed and children (and adults) will get grumpy. But with just a little planning and an open mind, you’ll survive and enjoy another family vacation.
