Traveling with a small child is not a relaxing and exciting experience as some portrait it. When you’re confused and there is traffic all around, it’s very easy to get angry, spiteful or bitter. However, it’s possible to make your trip better if you do some extra planning. One of the easiest ways is to get rid of transportation issues.
Getting a limo is the best choice, as it allows you to travel with comfort, pay full attention to your child’s needs and it’s actually cheaper than getting cabs 10 times a day. If you’re worried that traveling in a limo might be tough, some preparations will relieve you.
- Book a car in advance.
If you pre-order a car, you don’t have to deal with it later. You also have to notify a company that you’re traveling with a child. Ask a manager whether they provide car seats for kids and if there are any forms of entertainment available.
- Talk with your chauffeur.
If you find yourself wondering where you should go and what you should see next, don’t google. You can always ask your chauffeur. Chances are, they’ve seen the same travelers and they know what kids might enjoy. Remember that chauffeurs are always locals, so they definitely know better if a restaurant or a park is a good place to go to.
- Drive when your child is sleeping.
Kids get tired easily and if you have a baby, they sleep a lot more than adults do. Try to plan your trips, so you use a limo while your child is sleeping. That will allow you enjoy a ride too and won’t leave you with a screaming kid that is bored to death with the constant business meetings.
- Bring the meds.
If you know that your child is sensitive to motion (note that kids are generally more sensitive than adults), you have to bring some anti-sickness medication. Motion sickness or even regular nausea will easily make your ride horrible.
- Allow your kid to talk to a chauffeur.
Kids love talking to strangers. Plus, if it’s their first ride in a limo, they will have plenty of questions. Allow your kid to ask a few questions to a chauffeur (just don’t overuse this tip). That will give a child some information to chew on while you can just rest.
Traveling with a kid shouldn’t be hard. If you know that your child enjoys some activity, allow them to do it. You could also tell them an interesting story or talk about the things around you. Remember that a limo is also an interesting subject, so you could talk about cars and their types too.
