Simple Tips To Eliminate Vacation Hassles

By Lindsay Johnson

So what does a vacation look like for you? Maybe for the kids, it’s a time for fun and games. Perhaps for the adults, it’s a time for rest and relaxation. Vacation doesn’t have to be stressful. We have a few tips that will help your trip run smoothly.

1. There is nothing worse than having to search all over the house for airline tickets or maps. Put everything in one place so that you have no trouble finding it. Maybe put it in a bright colored folder with the name of your vacation spot on the front.

2. Let’s take a look in your closets. Do you have the clothes you need to make your vacation work? You don’t want to be miserable because you brought the wrong clothing. If you are going to the beach, you can probably leave your coat and scarf at home. Don’t take more clothes than you need and try to dress for the weather.

3. There are many travel packing lists. Some destinations provide these. This will help keep unpleasant surprises at bay. You would be wise to keep this in your file of papers for your trip.

4. Your children can be a big help to you by packing their own bags. You will want to make sure they have a list and have checked everything off. Also, if they packed their own bag, you may be lucky enough to have them want to carry it themselves. Therefore, make sure the bag is light enough for them to carry. Adding a few car friendly games and crafts will help make the trip go smoother.

5. Another great idea is a back pack filled with your necessities for the trip such as any medicine you may need to take, and water and snacks. A first aid kit if you are traveling with accident prone children is a wise idea.

6. If you have a specific destination and time frame in mind, the sooner you make reservations the better and the cheaper the price. However, if you are more flexible, cancellations can be a great way to go. You may not all get to sit together on flights though.

7. If you are going outside the United States, make sure you have a basic knowledge of the currency exchange rate so you don’t get taken in.
