Travelling with your family can be one of the most enjoyable experiences in life. You get to take in the sites of the world and share that with the people who are closest to you. It’s a time of bonding and discovery and is something every family should embark on at least once. When travelling with our families travel insurance is important particularly if one member was to become sick or injured on the trip – not having travel insurance could put undue financial pressure on the parents. Uninsured hospital bills overseas can range in the tens of thousands, even for a few days. Below is a list of tips for travelling while you are with your family:
Picking your family holiday destination
It might help in the planning process to all sit-down together and brainstorm on where you’d all like to go. Perhaps the parents could pick a few different places and then let the children decide from there, that way they’ll feel like they’ve had a choice in the process.
Take it slow
The less you plan on your itinerary, the better. Children tend to get tired more quickly, and with tiredness comes restlessness. You mightn’t want to take your kids to five galleries in a day, rather, if you just do one thing really thoroughly and well you can make a perfect day of it. By taking your time you’re likely to enjoy your trip a whole lot more. The slower you go, the less likely there is for anything to go wrong.
Have a set family itinerary
When you have everything set out and pre-planned before you head off on your big trip, you leave a lot less to chance – and there’s a lot less that can go wrong. When we know what we’re doing, it takes a lot of the pressure off of having to sort out what we’re going to do for the day, let alone the entire week! If we’re following an itinerary we can put our feet up a bit, and not have to think so much. Also, when we have a proper itinerary, we get an idea of how much money we will need to spend, and it makes it a lot easier to budget.
