As a travel junkie, pretty much any time of year is a good one for a vacation in my mind. But summer is especially good of course, since the kids are out of school, most parents have more free time and planning a road trip is a breeze! For the ultimate fun-filled travel experience, knowledge and preparaiton are key, though! That’s why P&G has put together some handy travel tips to help you ensure that your family vacation is one to remember forever.
Take time to prep
- Dedicate time well before departure to plan your pack—yes plan. Check the weather forecast, ensure flight times are accurate, check construction and closures and find alternative routes to make a realistic travel route to get you there on time. If flying, remember to double check what you can bring in your carry-on to avoid anything being thrown out.
- Avoid the morning of mad dash to gather all necessary toiletries and invest in a travel set of essentials. Do you need a full size shampoo and conditioner for the family to share, or can you use the adorable mini travel-sized items, like the super cute and convenient mini Scope Outlast to maintain fresh breath on the go? If you have essentials you just can’t duplicate, like an electronic toothbrush, add them to your last minute pack list.
