Use These Tips to Plan Your Post-COVID 2021 Family Holiday

 

COVID fatigue. It’s the latest buzz word that everyone is hearing right now. Let’s face it, 2020 has been a difficult year and the New Year cannot come fast enough. Thanks to the arrival of vaccines, 2021 is now showing promise and hope that COVID will finally get under control and people may be about to go about a “new normal” life that allows them to get out of the house once again. With that hope comes the notion that travel will once again be possible and that’s enough to get a lot of people really excited.

So, if you’re ready for something fun and exciting to look forward to, why not use these tips to start planning your post-COVID family holiday?

Choose Family-Friendly Accommodation

While you may think it’s the destination that makes or breaks the holiday, when travelling with kids it can often come down to the accommodation. You want to be sure that the property is child-friendly, which means offering a variety of amenities that are suited towards kids and parents to ensure everyone has a fabulous stay.

Some amenities to watch for include on-site entertainment for kids, a pool, restaurants that offer kids menus, over-sized rooms perfect for families to spread out in, and proximity to attractions and sights.

Don’t Over-Stuff the Itinerary

It can also be quite tempting to want to pack as much as you possibly can into your holiday, doing and seeing everything in the guidebook. The problem is that kids can be pretty unpredictable and they may not have the energy, tolerance, or interest in in a jam-packed itinerary. Although you can create a list of things you’d like to do, be sure to allow for flexibility in the schedule so you can go with the flow. This will ensure a more enjoyable holiday for all.

Pre-Book Your Taxi to the Airport

Another way you can make things smooth and stress-free is to use an airport taxi service. You can go online and research “taxi firms near me” to find a local option, and then book that option well in advance of your actual departure date. It’s one less thing to worry about on the day of travel, as you know you’ll have a taxi available to you and you will arrive for your flight on time.

Pack Activities and Toys to Keep Them Busy

Of course, the thought of a holiday is enough to get adults happy, but kids are still kids. They still need to be entertained, even while on holiday. This is why it’s a good idea if you’re travelling with young children that you pack some travel-friendly activities, games, and toys that can keep them busy in-transit to the destination, and during those down times while on holiday.

So, if you’re having a hard time getting through the COVID slump that so many others seem to be in, why not give yourself a little something to look forward to and start looking ahead to your post-COVID family holiday?
