6 Top Tips for Travelling With Kids This Winter from Direct Travel Insurance

Youngsters are brimming with excitement, it’s the winter holiday period and the family are off on a skiing trip or chasing some winter sun.

To stop all that high energy turning to bored impatience en route, here are six top tips from Direct Travel Insurance for making travelling with children easier on everyone.

Story tapes, tempting snacks and some hearty singing can be as essential as tickets, holiday money and Ski Insurance or family Holiday Insurance.

1.  Story CDs should while away the hours - adventure stories for older
    children; hilarious escapades for younger ones; modern classics for
    almost everyone. 

2.  A couple of weeks before you go, squirrel away some favourite toys and
    invest in few new small things to entertain little ones in the car or on
    the plane. 

3.  If you're driving to the Alps, call in at a French patisserie for
    scrumptious cakes that don't exist in Britain, such as a dumpy chocolate
    choux bun called a Religieuse - French for nun, because that's what it
    looks like! Fruit and veg can come later. 

4.  Show off your X Factor skills with a family singalong - old favourites,
    chart toppers or you could laugh yourselves silly trying to sing the
    words to one song to the tune from another, such as The Grand Old Duke
    of York to the tune of Mamma Mia. 

5.  Measure the journey in kilometres/hours, make a star chart and award a
    star for every agreed period with no whingeing or fighting. Hand out a
    reward at the end. 

6.  If you're travelling with a baby, a good move is to pack plenty of
    nappies and baby food in case you can't find what you need. The range at
    your holiday destination may be more limited than at home. 

With these tips from the holiday travel insurance experts at Direct Travel Insurance, a family ski trip or fun in the sun should get off to a super start.
