Travel Tips For Your Family Holiday

FUSS-FREE FAMILY HOLIDAYS

With clever planning and the right preparation, travelling with your loved ones can lead to a dream vacation.

The best family holidays are fantastic opportunities to bond and get back in touch with loved ones, but without proper planning, these can turn into logistical nightmares, unnecessary stress and even constant bickering during trips. To help navigate around these possible pain points, follow our tips for a better family vacation experience!

Beach Resort in Maldives

SAFE DESTINATIONS

As your home-away-from home for the next few days or weeks, choose from the best family destinations that will give you peace of mind. From family resorts to kid-friendly hotels and facilities to places of attraction, bear in mind that the younger the family members, the greater the attention to ensure minimal health-related inconveniences.

Check location maps and find out the hotel’s proximity to various attractions and amenities. Better still, check the official website of the accommodation, where chances are there’s more accurate information regarding all the above and more. Booking direct on the hotel website often has more benefits too, ranging from complimentary daily breakfast to room upgrades.

THOUGHTFUL ACCOMODATION

This distinguishes an amazing family holiday from any other. Check if there are special child-friendly amenitie that can range from rooms decked in kid-friendly décor with child-friendly toiletries and more.
Ensure that everyone has enough space for a good rest. 

Family packages are probably your best bet for a hassle-free holiday. Park Hotel Group’s Family Moments package allows children to stay and dine for free, with additional perks like 50% discount on your second room, complimentary kids meals, weekend upgrades at no additional charge and complimentary in-room amenities that are specially tailored for your tots. Click here for more details.

To reduce the hassle of getting around, choose hotels that offer airport pickups and group transportation.

Kids-Friendly Activities

FUN ACTIVITIES FOR ALL

Holidays with children should be enjoyable for all! Check if your hotel and resort of choice offers kid-friendly activities, or kids’ club. If they do, the little ones will be happily occupied with fun programmes guided by trained facilitators who might be able to take them off your hands while you relax with a much-deserved spa treatment, discover the locale or simply unwind. Grand Park Kodhipparu, Maldives, for example, has a well-stocked family & kids room with games and toys that will keep adults and kids entertained. Don't miss out on family-friendly activities to do if you happen to be in Singapore!

Instead of trying to visit as many attractions as possible, check how much time is needed for each place and draw up a list of priority attractions together using Google Maps. This way, everyone’s needs are met, and you can all enjoy your vacation together without rushing everywhere.

ALWAYS BE PREPARED

Always be prepared to battle potential trip dampeners like health scares and lost items. Just in case, consult your General practitioner for necessary vaccinations and pack some essential medication for tummy upsets and common colds. If you're on a staycation, it won’t hurt to be aware of neighbouring chemists, clinics or hospitals. Just in case.

For long journeys, prepare some simple snacks and keep your child stimulated with games or toys. These serve as enjoyable distractions and can also help with air pressure during flights.

Another tip: Some airports, like Changi Airport, has playgrounds within the departure area where kids can have all the fun prior to the flight, and hopefully, will be in need of some rest during the actual travel on-board the plane.

Staycation in Singapore

CAPTURE THOSE MOMENTS

Precious family moments should be treasured for a lifetime. Snap away using your smartphone or camera for more conversations and reflections post-trip. This will also be great resources for family scrapbooking moments or reminiscing shared experiences together, which helps everyone bond even more. Upload them too to share with close family and friends!

Excited to take your family on a holiday? Start with short trips to neighbouring countries that you can explore even on a long weekend.
