If you’re wanting to head off and travel the world, or at least some of it, with your children then you could be forgiven for not really knowing where to start. It’s not as simple as booking a flight and thinking ‘right let’s go’, because there are many pitfalls along the way if you go into this kind of adventure unprepared. The good news? Family travel can be hugely rewarding and very educational, whilst also being great fun – provided you know what you are doing!
Luckily, there are many families who have done this before, so that means they’ve experienced those pitfalls, learnt new things along the way, and can pass down this advice to you.
