Safety is key if you’re taking your kids on a long trip. Always make sure you allow time to check that any car seats are fitted properly and, if you’ve recently changed cars, make sure the car seats are still suitable. You can read our guide on car seats here for more information.
Whether you’re a regular to Bognor Regis or a first-timer in Blackpool, planning your route is essential to keeping your passengers happy. If your journey is long, plan in some pit stops. Working out where you’re going to stop might help keep the kids calm.
