– Plan On It –
Even if you were a spontaneous, go-where-the-wind-takes-you traveler before you became a parent, having a solid itinerary and a comfortable, pre-arranged crash pad will do wonders for your family’s happiness—and your sanity.
– Pack It Up –
Family travel is no time for minimalism. Keep organized by making detailed lists, setting a packing strategy and confirming the applicable regulations and limits so you’re not caught off guard. Get older kids involved in the packing process as a fun learning experience.
– Flying High –
Long stretches in cramped quarters can make anyone antsy. Let your kids know what to expect on the flight and plan for some fun distractions—a new book, fun snacks, or even your tablet loaded up with a favorite movie or three will help pass the time.
– Where Is My Suitcase? –
Never wonder whether your checked bag made the trip with you. Stash a Tile Bluetooth tracking device in your suitcase to keep tabs on it with your phone. The app will notify you when your bag is within Bluetooth distance, so you can sit comfortably with your little ones in the arrivals area.
