Top Tips for Travelling as a Family with Toddlers

A holiday is a great way to spend some quality time with your family and it’s perfect for creating special memories with your toddler.

However, when travelling with a toddler, there’s some extra considerations you might need to make – to keep them entertained and make sure they’re comfortable on your break abroad. Here are some tips to help you ensure you have a stress-free holiday with your toddler:

Choose a Toddler-Friendly Spot

One of the most important things you can do to ensure a stress-free holiday with your toddler is careful planning beforehand.

Do some research into spots that have child-friendly hotels and with plenty of fun activities to take part in. A great way to keep your toddler entertained is with a beach vacation and what better place than the Hawaiian Islands! Oahu is a great place for snorkeling with kids at the beach or better yet take a snorkel tour in Oahu and have a great time!

Importantly, you should pick somewhere with a climate that’s suitable for your toddler. There are of course ways that you can protect your toddler from the sun, but you don’t want somewhere too hot or too cold that it’ll be uncomfortable for them.

Account for Extra Time

The best way to prepare for a relaxing toddler-friendly holiday is to factor in some extra time to do things. You’re guaranteed a stressful break if you fill your holiday with activity after activity – try to plan for a day where you can rest or relax without a set itinerary in mind.

Don’t forget about planning for extra time when travelling too as you might need some extra time getting to the airport and travelling to day trips when you’ve got a toddler to get ready too.

Toddler Packing Tips

Here are a few things you should add on your list when packing for your holiday with a toddler:

  • Sun block and bug repellent
  • Any medicine they might require
  • Comforters e.g. toys or a blanket for your little one to feel at home
  • A tablet or games to keep them entertained
  • Swimming costumes
  • Extra clothes
  • Bibs and wet wipes to help with any spills or accidents
  • Travel documents, including their passport and travel insurance details

A holiday with a toddler can be unpredictable at times and packing these extra items will help you stay prepared for any situation when on holiday with your family.
