Family vacations should be fun trips that bring families closer together, so make sure you pack everything you need to keep everyone safe, happy and comfortable on your trip.
Pack a first aid kit. That should never be missed. Consider it as one more member of the family, especially if you are traveling with small children. The kit should have pain pills, alcohol and bandages of various sizes, tape, mercury, hydrogen peroxide, gauze with Vaseline, tablets to make a tourniquet, hydrogen peroxide, tissues and disposable gloves. Except if you travel by plane, because some of these items are prohibited in some countries. Accidents happen. Therefore, it is better to be prepared. It is highly recommended that at least one member of the family know first aid. Imagine you are going to the beach and someone is drowning, you could save a relative by giving first aid. Do not think that that it cannot happen to anyone, because we are all likely to have accidents.
If you are traveling by car it is very important to bring blankets and sweaters in the trunk of the car. You never know when temperatures can drop. This is especially important when you are camping, but you could also need some extra heat even in luxury vacation homes. Also carry water and toilet paper with you wherever you drive.
If possible buy a GPS. There is nothing worse than driving for hours looking for a place and not finding it. The GPS will tell you what direction to take and which roads to avoid in case of heavy traffic. These tips can help you have a perfect, stress-free vacation, with more money in your pocket and being safe.
