Travel tips and Advice for travelling as a familyTravel tips and Advice for travelling as a family

Whether you’re exploring the hidden gems of the United Kingdom, heading to the cosmopolitan cities of Europe or venturing Worldwide, a family holiday is the perfect opportunity to make unforgettable memories with loved ones.

 

Postcard family travel insurance promises to make your travels stress free and advises all customers to do their research before heading away. Here are some top tips for travelling with your nearest and dearest;

 

Make reservations – there is nothing worse than checking-in only to find you and your family will be sitting at opposite ends of the plane. Pre-booking your seats will ensure your family will be seated together, and you can even opt for a little extra leg room.

 

Allow plenty of time – you know how it is; toddlers love to dawdle! Make sure you allow extra time for exploring, toilet stops and temper tantrums.

 

Learn the lingo – Get the whole family involved in learning a few local phrases. Not only will it be educational for the children but imagine the fun you’ll have trying to master the accent!

 

Read, read and read again – yes I know it’s boring but checking your travel insurance, passports and  entry documents before you head off will save any hold ups at border control over a miss-spelling or an incorrect date of birth.

 

Pack in-flight entertainment – although many long haul flights provide in-flight entertainment (usually in the form of a television), it may be worth packing a few extra toys to keep the little ones occupied; colouring books, puzzles and travel games work best!

 

Don’t forget the sun lotion… unless you want to be spending all holiday sitting in the shade wincing at the thought of someone brushing against your glowing shoulders.
