Planning a family holiday can sometimes get a little stressful because you want it to be absolutely perfect, you get to spend very little time with your family as a whole for any long period of time without work and other commitments getting in the way. Here are 3 great tips to make sure that it goes exactly to plan and that you have a fabulous time.

Make sure you can have some quality time as a couple

I know that you are going away with your family and want to spend lots of time with your kids, but as a couple you also want to have the odd relaxing night together. The best way to do this is to get a babysitter, don’t worry because you won’t have to advertise. Simply, ask the hotel if they have a babysitting service available, I know that the hotel being able to provide a baby sitter usually sways my decision.

Check the passports

Remember that everyone now needs to have their own passport, even if they are a baby. It used to be that kids could be on their parent’s passport but unfortunately that is not the case. So to avoid any mishaps which means that you can’t get on the plane and jet off on holiday make sure that everything is in order before you book.

Remember what your kids are like

You know your kids better than anyone else on the planet. So you need to understand how your kids will react to the travel that you have planned, it might be a good idea to just go to somewhere close to the airport so that you don’t have to travel for any unnecessary amount of time. We all know travelling with kids can be stressful so try to make it as easy as it possibly can. This is why Spain is a great destination, there are no long haul flights and you can be there in a few hours only.
