6 Travel Hacks Every Parent Should Know.

1. Look out for hotels with kids clubs/facilities.

Travelling with kids can be a chore in itself. Why not pick a hotel that has a kids club or child-friendly facilities? Here at Treacy’s Hotel Waterford, we pride ourselves on our amazing family friendly facilities. We have an on-site kids club, a leisure centre with a heated pool and a thermal area. We also have a kids area in the bar fully equipped with arcade games and a soft play area for the smaller ones.

2. Always have anti-bacterial wipes to hand.

When travelling with your family, it is a very good idea to pack anti-bacterial wipes.. and more of them! Children are guaranteed to munch on their little fingers after touching every grimy surface they can get their hands on. It’s so important to keep our little ones healthy so wipes are key for cleaning down surfaces. A travel size hand sanitizer is also one for the handbag.

3. Snacks are essential.

Giving kids snacks helps to pass the time and keeps them occupied when taking long trips. Having options helps eliminate any arguments or tantrums before they even happen. Instead of rummaging through a bag for snacks, why not fill a compartmented snack box with all their favourite sweet, salty and healthy treats. Snacks for the hotel room could also be brought from home for families on a budget.

4. Don’t forget some quiet toys for a road-trip.

Sure, electronics make travelling with kids much easier, but don’t underestimate the power of toys to keep boredom at bay. Quiet toys are essential for long journeys, they occupy children, minus the loud background noise. Avoid bringing the ‘favourite toy’ and bring a toy that won’t be missed if it gets lost along the way.

5. Prepare for unexpected travel sickness.

Always be prepared for unexpected motion sickness. Having anti sickness tablets on hand is essential. Travel sickness could occur at any moment throughout your holiday so having an emergency plastic bag is also key. Another tip for relieving motion sickness is to tilt your head from side to side, try it!

6. Bag each outfit for the kiddies.

Packing kid’s outfits (top, bottoms, socks, nappy/underwear) in a plastic zip lock bag makes life so much easier when getting ready in the morning. It keeps you organised and definitely saves time. The bag will always come in handy afterwards for any nappy changing emergencies!
