Get kids to help. From planning the activities to pulling their own suitcase, kids can and should have a role in the family vacation. Besides, if they have a role in the planning, you won’t take all the blame if something goes wrong. (Tip 8)
Score a free hotel upgrade. This is where the good manners come into play. Being nice to the overworked and underappreciated front desk clerk can go a long way toward making your family vacation better. (Tip 93)
Bring a power strip. It comes in handy at the airport when there’s only one outlet and the other guy got there first and at the hotel, where it acts as a charging station lessening the chances you will forget the phone charger you plugged in behind the bed. (Tip 79)
