  • Pick a destination where all family members can enjoy and have activities throughout the day to entertain themselves and involve them in planning, if you can book in advance.
  • Pack light and only what you need, having to deal with multiple people in the family is enough to worry about luggage.
  • Prepare an emergency kit with alcohol, bandages, pain relievers. Keep your documents with you in case of any emergency.
  • Reserve your airport parking with Book2Park, traveling as a family is an adventure and looking for cheap parking, especially long-term parking, can take valuable time, but don’t worry, we offer many options in most US airports.
  • Bring snacks on the flight, download series and movies to any digital device to keep your kids entertained and not stressed during the flight.
