When travelling with kids, it’s even more important to have things sorted out ahead of time. You can wing it if your kids are flexible, but most times you don’t want to forget their favourite stuffie, or plan activities through their nap or cranky times if you can help it.
Pre-Trip Planning Checklist
There can be so much to do before you actually get to the fun part of actually being on vacation. Let’s make things easier with a pre-trip list. Fill out all those important must-dos like booking flights, rental cars and lodging to checking passports are up-to-date and house / pet sitters are booked. Then check them off, one by one.
Don’t forget vacation essentials like their favourite stuffie, cords to your cell phone or bathing suit. Plus it will save you money on having to buy overly expensive items at your destination. Save your travel money for what you really want to be doing…….having FUN!
There was a time when I liked to fly by the seat of my pants, overstuff a bunch of clothes into a backpack last minute and took each day as it came. That was before kids. Now I try to avoid the extra hassles of not planning ahead, because it means a more relaxing and fun vacation for me as well.
TIP: Print out a packing list one for each family member. If you laminate it, it can be used again and again.
Keep track of your vacation expenses, so you can relax knowing your budget is under control, and you won’t get any nasty surprises on your next credit card bill. Track your meals, lodging, car rentals, tours and more.
The Lodging info printable is the perfect way to keep track of where you and your family will sleep each night. Leave behind a copy with a family member or friend in case of emergencies.
Now we get to the good stuff. Make sure you fit in your top bucketlist activities on your next family vacation. Planning a bit ahead can save you money (like getting deals on Disney passes or attractions at your destination). Track your tours, activities and daily itinerary.
Remember all your special family travel memories in the years to come. Capture your trip highlights, funny moments, and those travel fails. Let those become the stuff of family legends. I still read my travel journals from my 4 month trek through Europe and India in my 20’s. You can’t remember everything,
