Family Travel Tips:

1.  Documents

Have your paperwork handy and all in one place.  If you are traveling with children make sure you are bringing birth certificates or passports in order to get lap child tickets and verifying ages for tickets.  Print tickets ahead of time in and check in before heading to the airport.  Create a folder that is easy to remove from your bag/carry on that has your itinerary, tickets, hotel information, car rental paperwork and identification information.  This will allow you to feel organized.

2.  Snacks

Bring all the snacks!  Okay, not all of them but bring some portable treats and snacks that will help your children stay way from melt down mode.  Make sure they are mess free, some examples: crackers, cookies, fruit snacks, trail mix, ect.  Also bring a reusable water bottle and keep it empty until through security and fill it with water.  Great for on the go vacations too!

3.  No Wrinkles

Having children to pack for means more luggage but if you are smart on how to pack and use the Atlantic Luggage you will be able to cut down on your suitcases!  Atlantic Luggage is magic - you would be amazed on how much you can pack in the light weight suitcases!  Now, to keep those clothes wrinkle free you have to choose your clothes carefully and roll them in tight paper towel like rolls.  

4.  Entertainment

Bring the portable devices.  Tablets set up to be ready for easy travel with favorite TV shows, movies and even games will help your kiddos settle in for the trip.

5.  Planning is Key

Think it out.  Give your family plenty of time to get your your destination with out stress.  Do not forget to build in time for food and bathroom breaks.  Slow down and enjoy your time with the family and kids.
