I love me a good road trip. So far, our biggest ones as a family have been to North Carolina and the mid-coast of Maine. I think driving trips are fun and are often more affordable than flying. Today Jonathan, who blogs at Saker Racing, shares us his best hacks for an affordable road trip!

I love sharing my best travel tips, and I also love hearing what others find important for traveling with little ones. Today we have Kiley, who shares her best 9 tips for traveling with young kids.

 

Contrary to popular belief children can be the best travel buddies you will ever find. Everything is an adventure, everything is new and exciting when you’re seeing a child experience it for the first time.

Whether you are going on a big family holiday, and you know you’ll be on babysitting duties for your cousins or you’re taking your own brood away with you, these tips can make your life so much easier.

So take a deep breath and relax, after all, it’s your holiday too.

For all the flying we have done, my kids have ONLY twice traveled with a layover. The first time was when little man was almost two. Our flight to Fort Myers, Florida were cancelled due to weather and we had to rebook for the next day, but stopping in Atlanta. Then last year, when we went to Hawaii, we opted to arrive on Maui which necessitated changing planes in LA.  I always say I am lucky to live in New York, because you can fly direct MANY places.

So today’s guest post is about layovers with kids, and how to handle them with (or without) little ones. The writer is Alex who blogs at Inspire a Better Life. He lives in Sydney, Australia.

I am so excited to have another guest author today – Divya from Eat, Teach, Blog! I “met” Divya through a Facebook Social Media group and her site caught my eye because she often writes about travel, lives in a teeny tiny town (which I found interesting) and is like me, a former teacher. When I saw her series on a recent European River Cruise, I actually invited her to submit her story for the Momma To Go readers.

I know for me, family travel does not always mean me and my kids. As you know I went to Italy last March with a few of my favorite family members – my aunt, uncle and sister. And for some folks, friends mean family (kinda like #thegirlfriends). So whoever you hold near and dear, plan a trip, but here are some awesome tips for traveling with extended family:
