Holiday Essentials You Need When Traveling With Children This Summer

Travelling with Kids

Making the most of your summer doesn’t mean you have to pack everything and struggle to carry it all. It means you want to enjoy your holiday, make the most of the great weather and only pack the things you need. Whether you are travelling abroad, within the UK, by plane, by boat or by car, make sure that you have all the essentials for traveling with kids this summer.

The most important part of traveling with children is safety. There can be nothing worse than not having the essentials if a child gets injured, goes missing or stays in the sun for too long.

Lightweight Baggage

This summer make sure you have packed everything you need rather than everything you have. Taking overly heavy bags can weigh you and your kids down filled with items you will only since once you are unpacking when you get home. Instead opt for lightweight baggage, less clothes, more of the necessities.


Last year there were more cases of skin cancer reported than any other type of cancer. It cannot be stressed enough that is overly important to make sure your child is wearing suncream whenever they need to be. Even if the weather is not great or you are skiing surrounded by snow thinking there is no need to wear suncream, you are mistaken. Whatever the weather, wherever the destination, the most essential holiday item has to be suncream. Make sure your children are wearing it. Apply once in the morning and again if they are going to be heavily exposed to the sun or have been in sea where it may wash off.

Travel Documents

Travel documents are essential especially if you are travelling abroad. Having the right paperwork, travel insurance and passports can make your journey a lot smoother. You will need your passport for any port, airport, ferry crossing, euro tunnel and even to hire out bikes or cars. THIS IS A MUST HAVE when traveling abroad. For within the UK the most important thing to remember is the travel insurance. You never know what may happen on your holiday so be safe rather than sorry by protecting your kids with insurance.


The best way to stay safe when traveling with children this summer is to give them a Personal GPS Tracker. This means they are safe and easy to locate. With a Kids GPS Tracker you can know that your child is safe whilst giving them the freedom to explore whilst on holiday. Tell them they are in a spy film and it is a must have gadget. They can use the GPS as an alarm and alert texts will be sent to your mobile which you can also track them from using the app. On top of this they are small, accurate and greatly increase your child’s safety wherever you are travelling.

Anti-Bacterial Wipes

Every parent will know just how amazing anti-bacterial wipes are. Not only can they make sure your children are not putting anything nasty into their mouths from their hands, they can greatly combat dirt of any form. Perfect for any journey, car, boat, plane or walking, these wipes are definitely a holiday essential to combat any mess.

With these essentials packed and ready to go, the only thing left to do is enjoy the holiday as safely as possible.
