So, we bring to your attention 15 tips that will help you organize a comfortable vacation with your child and get a lot of pleasure from them. 1. Choosing a tourist destination First of all, you need to find out what type of vacation each member of your family prefers. At lunch, dinner, or watching your favorite TV show in the evening, try discussing your upcoming vacation together. Listen to suggestions from everyone, remember where you have already visited and, taking into account the interests of the child, try to choose the right direction. It should be borne in mind all the details: the possibility of excess spending, the size of the vacation budget, the presence of health problems, interests, hobbies and hobbies. If you are organizing a trip with your child, you will have a wonderful joint vacation! As you know, vacationing with children in the high season is the most expensive, that is, in the midst of summer (usually July-August). If you manage to get out on vacation before or after the onset of general excitement, then you can save a significant amount of money. Airplane tickets, hotel accommodation, as well as meals and during a great school vacation, are getting more expensive. If possible, go around these periods to avoid big expenses. 2. Travel Estimation Plan your travel budget in advance. You should not take all the accumulated money with you on a trip, however, it does not make sense to deprive yourself and your child of entertainment due to limited funds, otherwise you simply will not enjoy the trip. If you do not want to end up with a hopelessly spoiled vacation, think over every, even the most insignificant waste, so that later it turns out that you cannot allow your child extra ice cream or a souvenir. 3. We plan in advance If you are traveling with a child to a new country without having previously booked a hotel, then upon arrival you may expect certain difficulties. Finding decent housing is not so quick as it seems at first glance, especially if you have small children who want to sleep, eat, drink, play, etc. Therefore, even if you do not want to be attached to a particular resort and hotel , and plan to travel by car, book an apartment near the airport for at least 1-2 days. And then on the spot, in a relaxed atmosphere, you can engage in the detailed development of your future route. 4. Choosing a hotel To find out the contents of a room is your number one task. What kind of beds are there, how many rooms, whether there is a child’s place, a balcony, a refrigerator, a bath or a shower in the bathroom, etc. When considering accommodation options, first of all, pay attention to the location of the hotel. If we are talking about a sightseeing trip to one of the tourist cities, it is better to book one that is closer to its center. So you minimize the time spent on travel to major accumulated , parks, and museums. If you are planning a beach holiday, you need to focus on the distance from the hotel to the beach. It is difficult for children to take long walks, so the developed infrastructure and proximity to the center / beach is the first thing you should pay attention to when planning a vacation with a child. The infrastructure of the hotel is also quite an important point. Be sure to check at the stage of booking the presence of a children’s pool, club, animators and a game room. If your baby is not more than three years old and you use a stroller, ask the manager if there is an elevator in the hotel and whether the area is equipped with ramps. If your child does not eat from the general table yet and he needs special baby food (mixes, cereals, jars of fruits, vegetables, meat), ask the hotel manager about the availability of a grocery supermarket within walking distance where you can buy food for the baby. If you plan to stay on vacation not in a hotel, but in an apartment, check with the landlord about the availability of a refrigerator, microwave, washing machine, iron and other necessary appliances that provide us with comfort in everyday life.
