Travelling with kids tips

We know that travelling and especially flying with children can be stressful at times. Enjoy your family holiday from start to finish, with these top tips:

  • Have drinks readily available for children to sip during take off and landing, a small distraction from the motion and pressure. 
  • Buy new toys and games, these will keep children entertained for longer. 
  • Use different toys at different times to keep children engaged, interactive games are a great way to occupy time on a flight, such as I Spy and Uno. 
  • If it’s an evening or night flight, take pyjamas for the children, it can help avoid disrupting bedtime.
