Families have a pretty bad reputation when it comes to aeroplane etiquette. In a survey of 1,019 American holidaymakers, 59 per cent said that inattentive parents were the most infuriating to travel with, coming second only to rear seat kickers (61 per cent).
Just over half (53 per cent) said they found themselves annoyed by loud children – and it’s likely that the parents wanted some peace and quiet too!

It might seem obvious, but being organized is the key when traveling on a family vacation. When you have all eventualities covered, nothing life and travel can throw at you is a problem! Have all your necessary bits and pieces within easy access, divide and conquer thanks to pockets or ziplock bags, so you can reach anything you need in record time thereby avoiding any crisis.
Don’t overdo it
Sometimes it’s tempting to schedule too many activities. The idea is to keep the kids happy, but remember that running from A to B does not make for a relaxing time for you and for the kids, who will also be exhausted so take some time to do nothing together too and make the most of the resort’s family friendly facilities.
Never underestimate the power of food! A hungry little one can prove to be a disaster when traveling. You might think you can always pick up a bite en route, but it helps to have a backup, just in case. If, for some reason, you’re delayed, you’ll be thankful to have an emergency kid-friendly food stash!
Remember in-travel entertainment
Whether you choose to entertain the junior members of the party with colouring pads, ipads or the classic kid-friendly toy cars and dolls, it’s key to bring fun items along when traveling to ban boredom at all costs!
For some of the kids it seems so fun while for some it seems scary. I have seen so many parents stressed to their nines. If you happen to be a cool parent, though, the kids can read you, and they are so much better behaved. Other travelers can be a nightmare if your kids start acting up.
