You get to spend some quality time with them, the parents get some time to themselves and your grandchildren gain some special memories. You also may be able to combine senior’s discounts with children’s fares making it an affordable trip too. It’s worth noting that if you are (brave enough to be) travelling with a child under the age of two they will travel free or nearly free. However, if the flight is full you will be expected to juggle them on your lap for hours. If your budget allows and you are travelling during a peak period then it is worth considering the purchase of a ticket that actually comes with a seat!

اسعار اسهم السوق السعودي اليوم Before 5 October 1998, babies and children could be included on a parent or guardian’s passport, however children must now have their own passports to travel abroad. If your grandchild doesn’t have a passport then you can apply for one here.

تعلم تداول العملات الأجنبية عبر الإنترنت If you are not the child’s legal guardians, you should also have two further documents with you. The first should be a direction from his parents giving you permission to travel with their child. This document should have the exact date and destination of travel as well as flight numbers etc. The documents should be signed and notarised to provide comfort that it is real. The second is a notarised letter from the parents giving permission for medical care. You may never be asked for these documents but for the little effort it will take to have them better safe than sorry. If your grandchild’s parents are divorced, it is especially important that documents are signed by both parents, as sometimes children are taken out of the UK during custody disputes.

برامج تحليل الاسهم السعودية If you are travelling within the UK, remember to pack your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC – available from the Post Office or apply online). It helps ensure some or all of your health costs will be covered if there is a mutual arrangement between the UK and the country you are visiting. Remember that the EHIC isn’t an alternative to travel insurance, as it will not cover any private medical healthcare or the cost of things such as lost or stolen property. For these reasons and others, it is important to have both an EHIC and a valid private travel insurance policy. Some insurers now insist you hold an EHIC and many will waive the excess if you have one.

Health basics

 

Always take a basic first aid kit plus insect repellent and antihistamine cream for bites as the chances a

re you’ll need something from this department whilst you’re away. Rehydration sachets and anti-diarrhoeal tablets can also come in very useful. Finally, antiseptic wipes (Germolene make some good ones for kids) kept in your handbag are great for a quick wipe of hands, grazes or even loo seats.

 

It is a good idea for any child travelling abroad to be up to date with his or her immunisations. Their parents should have a red book that has recorded when and whether each of their jabs has been given.

 

Ideas for destinations

 

Holiday with GrandchildrenThere is a world out there of fabulous resorts and stunning settings to have a fantastic holiday both you and your family will remember.

 

Think about the places you will enjoy, will feel relaxed and comfortable in. If you are travelling with a baby/babies only, then travel for yourselves. Babies don’t care where they stay as long as it’s with you. If you have older grandchildren then consider whether there will be scope for the children to have fun too. Remember that a hectic see-it-all holiday will probably end in frustration because allowing time is also very important.

 

Even if you have the luxury of a longer trip, don’t try to do and see everything – that risks overload and you are likely to find the children harder to handle. Allowing more time for them to potter around on a river beach, collect stones, play hide and seek in hollow trees or scramble on rocks will let you relax too.

 

Pick one spot to stay and content yourself with planning occasional short day trips from there. It’s hard for children to adjust to new surroundings every night, and packing and repacking isn’t much fun for you either.

 

If you have more than one small child per adult you may find a destination in northern Europe difficult since these can be rather child-unfriendly where children are not always welcome in hotels. The exception being the Scandinavian countries, which are very geared up for children. In southern Europe and the less industralised world, people will flock to help (yes please.)

 

Choose places to stay where young families are welcome, so you don’t feel as though you have to apologise all the time when your grandchildren just act like children and you don’t have to constantly say NO to them. Choose places that offer safe, enclosed play areas so your little ones can toddle about without setting pulses racing. A destination like this offers your grandchildren a great opportunity to interact with other children his or her own age.

 

Many holiday companies and hotels offer excellent family friendly destinations with all the extras provided. However, just because hotels don’t actually publicise that they are child friendly, many of them actually are. Choose the hotels you would like to stay in and then ask if they have facilities for families with young children, otherwise you will be limiting your choices to those which go overboard on child-friendliness.

 

Some good destinations are:

  • Florida
  • Balearic Islands – Menorca, Majorca, Fuerteventura, Ibiza
  • Canary Islands – Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote
  • Greece – Crete, Zante, Kos, Kefalonia

 

With so many travel companies going bust, it is more worthwhile than ever to book your holiday through a reputable travel companies. Here are links to some of the best:

 

  • Opodo
  • British Airways
  • Expedia
  • Thomas Cook
  • Lastminute.com
