Choose a place of rest, starting from the interests of the whole family. Individual choice of resort or the bus tour will be a failure if it is someone will not like it. So, a trip with children must be accompanied by a visit to amusement parks, water parks, beach holiday. Parents most likely will gravitate to new uncharted territory. Try to combine the interests of all members of the family and find a compromise.
Plan your holiday in advance. Prepare for a journey of several days is usually quite difficult. Accelerated fees and travel planning will only lead to disappointment. Contact the travel agency at least two months before the holiday. If you belong to the category of independent travelers, engaged in recreation should start at least four months.
Make a rough list of places that you want to visit in the country or the city where you will spend a vacation. Explore the area in advance, using the guides and forums on the Internet. So you protect yourself from wasting time and money and do not miss something really worthwhile.
Collecting things, try to adhere to the minimum required. This applies to clothes, shoes and other things. Remember that not all useful, and something that is not enough, you can always buy it. Heavy suitcases will present an obstacle to the movement on vacation. And the space is always handy for souvenirs and shopping.
Entrust the preparation of documents to the member of the family, which is characterized by perseverance and responsibility. Take care of collecting the necessary for visa or travel documents as a whole as soon as possible. Often it turns out that one expired passport, the other is non-existent. Better identify all deficiencies in advance to allow time to fix it.
When calculating the cost, be sure to keep in mind that on a plastic card must be stock for unforeseen expenses. On a trip anything can happen. Traveling by car can turn its breakdown, by plane - excess baggage on the trip - a forgotten bag in the car. So, try to allocate a certain amount to such cases.
