Our Travel Counsellors’ Top Tips

sharan hussainSharan Hussain – My tip for travelling with kids is to carry mini lollipops and give during take-off and landing to ease any air pressure discomfort in ears which often causes pain and tears. I also recommend packing little pocket toys/puzzles which the child has not seen before, mini pots of play dough keep little ones occupied for ages!

You may have one generic list including things like passport, toiletries and mobile charger, which you keep as an email addressed to yourself. Then add to it for each particular trip by ‘Replying’ as ideas pop-up, as many times as required. It makes packing a lot easier and lessens the chances of forgetting anything.

Snacks: Dried fruit, nuts, pretzels, biscuits etc. Past time favourites: Stickers , colouring books & pens, flash cards , puzzle books, etc

 

 

petraPetra Weidl – Before we fly my kids are in charge of their own travel bag they take on board. They have to pack 1-2 toys, a pullover, a book, some pencils and each one gets to buy 3 sweets the day before. This way they don’t have to rely on airline gifts that are usually not that great. Also they don’t get any more gifts once they turn 12!

– When I travel with my young children, I pack some new toys/ books that I only take out for them in-flight. Also, I pack an extra set of clothes with toiletries in my cabin bags just in case there’s any issue with my checked in luggage…
