Parents of young children know that vacations, especially beach vacations, take a lot of careful planning to be successful. However, at Allsave Car Rental Maui, we think that the effort it takes to prepare is totally worth it to get a breath of fresh air and a change of scenery. That’s why we’ve put together a list of expert tips so you can feel confident taking your kids to the beach.
Avoid Peak Travel Season
Take advantage of this time when your kids are still young and you don’t have to worry about their school or sports schedules. Until they are old enough to start school, you have the flexibility to travel whenever your own work schedule allows, so traveling during the off-season is totally possible. Because you won’t be traveling during a typical school break time, you’ll be able to avoid crowds and find better travel deals and specials.
Our second tip is to keep your schedule pretty loose. Planning with kids is super important, but you also need to remember that plans can go off the rails pretty quickly. So, plan your destination, hotel accommodations, and potential activities, but try not to be too strict with your day-to-day schedule. Be okay with leaving the beach early one day because the baby needs a nap or staying out past bedtime because the weather is perfect. Being too strict with your schedule will likely only set you up for frustration and disappointment.
Rent a Minivan
Minivans are designed with families in mind, so renting one during your beach vacation is a great way to make things go smoother. You’ll have plenty of space for each passenger, plus your luggage, plus all your beach gear! And, you really can’t beat the convenience of sliding doors when traveling with kids, no more worrying about door dings!
