Planning a family vacation is no small task: between finding time off from work and making sure your kids are off school, scheduling can be a nightmare.

Pick Your Destination


Although this might seem obvious, picking a destination can be tougher than you think. While you want to pick an exciting destination, it’s important to pick one that isn’t at the other end of the world. After all, you want to enjoy your time off and not waste the majority of it just getting to your destination, right? Start by looking into destinations close to you and begin planning around them.


Create a Travel Plan


Ask yourself how you're going to get to where you want to go as early as you can in the planning process. This helps you avoid making last minute travel plans. Take a look at bus schedules and determine what stations you're going to leave from and at what time. If you're planning to travel with family, look at luxury bus services that can accommodate more passengers or bus travel deals for large groups.


Pack Thoroughly


Always create a packing list and triple-check it. Make sure you have all the essentials and decide if food is going to be a part of your plan. If not, ask yourself: are you going to stop at restaurants? How much are you willing to pay? What about snacks? Going over your list and budget to create a plan that accounts for the time needed to stop and eat make will ensure you have all your bases covered.




When it comes down to it, a day trip is supposed to be an enjoyable time. With the planning out of the way, you can focus on relaxing, enjoying time with your family and taking in the scenery. Even if things get a little stressful or don’t go as planned, do your best to enjoy the time you have as much as you can.
