Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club knows that long car trips with young children can be trying for everyone in the car.  Here are some tips to help make this experience easier and more enjoyable for all.

Leave early in the morning or late at night.  Driving during the children’s sleeping time is a good idea.  Most small kids will not have a problem sleeping in the car.  This will allow for a peaceful and quiet trip. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club understands that if you are planning on driving during the night, make sure the driver is wide-awake and alert.  Adults can take turns driving to make things easier.

Do not be in such hurry that attending to the kids needs become stressful for everyone.  If you have to be somewhere at a specific time, leave much earlier than you think you need to. Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club knows that allowing time for multiple food and rest stops in essential when traveling with children.

When the kids are awake, look for play areas along the way to help them expel extra energy.  Rest stops often have a park area with grass and sometimes play equipment.  There may also be play areas along the way in fast food restaurants.  Even if you do not want a greasy meal, a drink or small snack can be a good treat and allow the use of the playground for the kids.
