Pack the essentials

From a small first aid kit to baby wipes and other “must-haves”, pack everything you think would come handy when travelling with kids. Carrying a bottle of sanitizer whenever travelling is always a good practice.

Extra time

Kids love to explore and don’t care about the travel schedule you have prepared. Make sure the schedule involves some extra time for their tantrums, toilet stops and other random activities your children can come up with.

Child-friendly accommodation

Wondering where to stay? Look for child-friendly hotels, reason being, these hotels make sure your kids are entertained and taken care of while you spend some “alone-time” with your spouse. With the hotel staff babysitting your kids, you won’t need a “Do Not Disturb” tag (;-) ) Check out these best child-friendly hotels in India for a well-planned vacation with kids.

Health check-up

If you're planning a trip overseas, make sure you and your children see your family doctor at least a month in advance. Discuss about your travel plans and check for any preventive measures or vaccinations your children need to take before heading for the vacation.

Meeting point

It’s always good to designate a meeting point and tell your kids to meet at the same place in case they go out of sight in dense crowds and are clueless on what to do next. Also, put a handy note in their bags that has the hotel’s address and number; you wouldn’t want them to wander alone in the new city.


Climate plays a vital role in deciding which destination to pick for holidaying, especially when you are travelling with children. Avoid going to places that have adverse weather conditions or else you won’t be able to explore the city properly, which in turn means a ‘flop show’. Don’t forget to check these child-friendly getaways in India.

Preserve memories

Apart from taking photographs, buy your children a postcard and ask them to pen down every single experience they have had in the city along with the dates, so that they have something to cherish about once they are back home.

If you want to catch up with your flight or train nap, load your tablet or smartphone with your child’s favourite games, TV shows or apps.

Food options

Most kids are fussy eaters. If you are travelling to a new destination, research a bit on regional cuisine. You know best what your kids eat, so look for restaurants or eating joints where they can savour their favourite cuisine.
