Travel Tips for Families On the Go


With headlines reporting attacks against tourists becoming more and more common, vacationers are on the alert. A recent magazine survey discovered that 85% of their readers said these reports have prompted them to be more cautious on while on holiday.Don't let a few criminals ruin your vacation. By taking a few precautions and staying alert, you can avoid spending part of your holiday filing a report at an exotic police station.

Watch your bags! Baggage theft at airports is on the rise, and half of the bags stolen are those left unattended. Thieves know that carry-on bags are where people carry their valuables and cash.

ebruary is here, and families are back in the swing of things! With optimistic travel industry news coming on from all sides, we see that family travel increased in 2010 and will continue to grow in 2011. This upturn is good news for travelers and hospitality properties alike, as families look for experiences and unique destinations to explore. Another travel trend that is important for family travel in 2011 is the much slower recovery of the airlines - meaning flights will continue to be more expensive than not and travelers will take to the road. Road trips are a time honored family tradition, and I've included some tips to make your family drive to your destination of choice memorable and comfortable for everyone.
