I Am The Travel Genie. I Can Show You How A Big Family Can Fly And Travel Easy

Mar 18, 2008
Are you interested in taking a family vacation soon? If you are, you may be looking for some guidance. In the future you and your family will be required to travel by airplane. It could be stressful.

It can sometimes be a hassle to take a trip and fly with a family. Especially one that is large in size. There are a number of steps that can be taken to ensure that everyone has a fun and pleasant time.

One of the first things that you will want to do,when looking to plan a family vacation, is to make your airline reservations early. You will likely be better off when doing so, for a number of different reasons.

Perhaps, the greatest reason is the comfort and peace of mind. Get relaxed from knowing that all of your travel arrangements are made and out of the way.

As for packing for your flight, you will want to make sure that the children packed the bags properly. You want to make sure that they have all the needed supplies for your vacation.

You will also want to make sure that they have items for the airplane ride as well. Each person gets to have one carry on bag. You will want to make sure that each of your kids has one.

Speaking of carry on bags for your children, be sure to fill them will fun activities for the plane ride. What you will choose will all depend on the child age.

For example, younger children may benefit from books and a few small toys. For older children, portable DVD players, handheld video games, toys, and magazines are a great idea.

You will also want to make sure that you have extra snacks on hand and in your carry on bags. This is important, as you do not want to have to spend too much money at the airport.

It can get costly to feed a whole family, even just with snacks. For that same reason, try to have everyone eat a full meal before you leave for the airport.

This step combined with snacks can help to reduce hunger. The savings in shared meals during airport layovers can also help you save money for shopping.

As for drinks, do not bring any with you to the airport, unless you have a newborn or an infant. If you have a baby, bring one prepared bottle of formula. Make sure to have some dry formula powder with you to prepare during a layover.

Drinks, with the exception of drinks for kids, are not allowed past airport security checkpoints. They will have to be thrown away.

When buying drinks at an airport store past security, look for for items that are reasonably priced. See if some family members, like you and your spouse, can share a drink.

As for when you arrive at the airport, be sure to stay together. Also, be sure to set ground rules with your children. These rules should include sticking together.

Do not speak to strangers, and so forth. In fact, you will want to help each other out.

For example, if you have an older child, like a teenager, let them help you with finding the right gate. Ask them to help in carrying bags, or keeping any younger children occupied. Your trip will likely be much less stressful when everyone works together.
