Essential Family Travel With Kids Tips
A family travel blog full of practical holiday & travel with kids tips, family friendly hotels, airline reviews, holiday inspiration and travel product reviews.
Hello, I’m Carrie, and I hope you find this site useful? I have over 12 years flying experience as a long-haul flight attendant and have visited over 60 countries.
Since becoming Mum to two little girls (now aged four and seven), we’ve also travelled extensively as a family – my husband is Australian so that includes some ultra long-haul flights and holidays. We have picked up plenty of tips for travelling through the baby, toddler and pre-schooler stages!
Now it’s excitement, not fear when we take even a 24-hour flight with our young children!
Top tips for flying with an infant, with practical information whether you are flying long or short haul, domestic or internationally with a baby.
I can’t promise every flight will go well, but I can definitely pass on my tips and tricks for flying with children which have worked for this stage – which haven’t put us off long haul flights with a toddler!
Here you’ll find a collection of family friendly airlines and reviews on their facilities for kids. Whether you are flying with a baby, toddler or an older child, these airline reviews will let you know what is onboard and what service you can expect on your flight.
I am always on the look out for general travel gear and the best travel accessories for long flights whether it’s kids’ travel accessories or for myself. Anything that is super useful, lightweight and convenient to pack definitely sparks an interest in it from me.
The guide to my reviews, are a mixture of things I’ve bought or borrowed from friends to try, been given to review or have come highly recommended by fellow parents on either my Facebook page Flying With A Baby – Family Travel community or my Family Travel Tips Forum group.
We also aim to provide you with:
- Inspiration and practical information about family-friendly destinations around the world.
- Attractions and days out too. If you have older kids and teens, I also include holiday information and activities that they will enjoy too.
- Family accommodation reviews and recommendations; including hotels, resorts, cruises, camping and more.
