Worried about your upcoming family vacation because there are multi-generations travelling together? While travelling with family and especially grandparents is a good idea, but we also understand that there are many things that need proper planning, priority handling, and vigilant care. Well, you need to only follow LatinOFare’s 6 tips on how to travel with your grandparents to have a memorable trip.

Be critical in destination choice

When holidaying with grandparents never forget to plan the trip keeping in mind their age, likes, and health factors. Choose for a destination that appeals to all – select places that are more elder friendly and are not too loud, excessively far, or very crowded. Keep in mind the walking miles, stairs, wheelchair accessibility, and ease of access to essentials and care. While booking the rooms, do not overfill the room, give the elders space and assign someone who is active and responsible with them.

Have a good flight

Check for senior citizen discounts and baggage options while booking. Make sure that the grandparents are comfortable during the flight; keep a traveling pillow, blanket, medicines, and some good story books or fun games handy to keep them at ease and engaged. Select your seats in advance and let the elders take the aisle seat  giving them easy access to the washroom and some room to move about. Arrive at the airport in time and ask for assistance while security screening.

Plan a friendly and comfortable trip

When with grandparents, you must realize the fact that they cannot exceed a particular limit and hence, do not go all superfluous in planning your itinerary. Instead keep some intervals of rest, short nap, quality family time, and small fun games. Avoid long distance commuting or walking on foot. You could make the trip more comfortable by ensuring they are accompanied and taken care of during all times.

Be smart and book in advance

Plan everything carefully and book in advance for all places that are expected to have queues or people waiting. Avoid going to any places/activities that are too crowded and demand a lot of time. Get your dinner reservations done beforehand, purchase tickets online, get your commuting booked in advance, and plan with care in case of an immobile grandparent.

Watch their health and medicines

Before taking off, please make sure you get their insurance and regular checkups completed. While on the trip, watch out for their health, monitor their food, ensure they take meds timely, and are well rested.

Be open and have a good time

When travelling with family especially grandparents, there may be things that might not go as planned, some places you might not visit, activities you might miss. It is very natural, enjoy wherever you go as it is important to have a good time.
