Travelling with Children

Whenever you travel with children it can be a stressful experience, especially when you fly as there is a lot of waiting around. Before you travel you should bring some travel friendly games or think of some fun games to play. Simple games like “Eye-Spy” work well as well as travel games like taking a pack of cards.

Some children may get anxious when they travel which may cause them to be unwell. To avoid this situation make sure you are relaxed and try and assure the child there is no reason to be anxious.

Park as close as you can to the airport to make travel time quicker and easier for you.

Contact your airline in advance to see what toddler booster seats or extra seat belts they offer for you and your family. Some airlines require children under a certain age to sit on a grown-up’s lap while in flight (as per the CAA guidelines) and sometimes offer additional support if your children are older.

When you get to your destination you may be hiring a car. If this is the case you may need to also consider getting a child seat. Read the car seat advice on Department for Transport website.
