Booking With Kids is a one-stop resource for parents, by parents.
We all know that travel can be a wonderfully enriching experience for children of all ages. The best quality time as a family comes from experiencing new things together: tasting new foods, seeing the sights and exploring a new culture.
That said, any parent knows that travelling with children can be a daunting task. Disrupted routines, unpredictable scenarios and cranky kids are just a few of the challenges you may encounter along the way.
That’s why we’re here. Our practical guides are designed to keep every member of the family happy, comfortable and safe throughout their vacation, letting you focus on what really matters: creating memories that will last a lifetime.
From needy newborns to temperamental tweens, our guides are written with every member of the family in mind.
We’ve split our content into two main categories to keep things simple for you:
- Travel with babies & toddlers (ages 0-4)
- Travel with kids (ages 5-12)
Our travel tips section also covers anything you need to consider when travelling with the family – from packing lists, to booking flights and accommodation and what to do once you’ve landed.
Here we cover tips and guides for infants aged 0-2 as well as toddlers up to the age of 4.
Our infant travel guides focus on transportation, maintaining routine and suggestions for the best spots to visit together.
Our toddler travel guides balance fun activities and sights for them to engage with and explore, while allowing for plenty of down time to let them unwind and recharge their batteries.
Focusing on school-age children aged 5-12, our kids travel guides include tips for getting them involved with the planning (even in a small way) all the way to the recommended activities themselves.
As with all our guides, we keep practicality in mind – that means keeping bellies full, faces full of smiles and pre-empting any hiccups along the way with nifty substitutions.
The world is your oyster, or so they say. So how do you pick a destination for your next family vacation?
Our selection of Family City Guides were created to help you answer that very question. We’ll help you narrow down your options based on what’s important to your family, and give you all the information you need about visiting the city you’re interested in with little ones in tow.
Most travel tips aren’t specific to a city. They count for any trip with a child, so we’ve put them all in one, handy place for you to refer to.
- Booking flights? These are the things you need to know.
- Choosing accommodation? Be sure to consider all these options.
- Not sure what to pack? Our checklists can help.
- Travelling with extended family? There are few points to consider.
- Have you planned a basic routine for your days? Don’t worry, we have.
There are also plenty of child-specific scenarios that you might not have considered yet, but which we’ve laid out for you:
- Sleep schedules and jet lag
- Being sick away from home
- Eating on the road
- Travelling solo with children
- Screen time on vacation
- Reluctant co-travellers
