Going for holidays with kids although offers you to spend quality time with them, at the same time also requires lots of things to keep in concern. Because you never know when your kids will get disturbed by anything. At the same time, you also need to be extra careful while travelling with them even if you are travelling in your personal car or a rented car. The reason is kids cannot sit silently without moving from one place to another, even if you get them to sit with you on your legs, they will try to see the things from the window or if they sit near a window they will try to take their face out, etc.
In short, when you are travelling with kids you need to be more sensitive and be prepared for everything in advance to make them happy. One best way to avoid lots of problems when travelling with kids is to hire a car for your journey. Doing this not only offers you the privilege to travel at your convenience but also offer your children to enjoy the journey. Therefore, if you are going to Paxos Island in Greece for holidays and planning to hire a car in Gaios, Paxos, then below are certain things to consider for enjoying your journey and holidays with kids without any trouble.
- If you and your spouse both sit in the front seats, then your kid (s) will have to sit alone at the rear seat. In that scenario, there are chances that in the desire to see the things happening outside they will either open the window or try to stand near the window, which may result in an accident. Similarly, there are chances that they may keep on moving between seats which may be dangerous for you while driving. To get rid of this problem it is better that anyone of you should sit on the rear seat with kids and look after them.
- One way to keep the kid’s busy while travelling in the rented car is to keep them busy in some activity, whether it is telling them stories, talking with them or giving them sort of games or books to read. Doing this will keep them focussed on particular tasks and they will sit silently without making any disturbance.
- If you are travelling for a long distance taking short breaks during the journey will not only offer you relaxation but also keep your family refreshed during the journey. You will also feel energized with snacks. Along with this, you will also have an opportunity to click photos of beautiful sceneries that fall on your way.
- Apart from these three main features, one more feature that you need to keep in concern is to lock the child lock of your car locked so that they cannot open the doors of your car while driving. As it is hard to predict the behaviour of kids, locking the child lock will not let them unlock the lock lever in the running car.
These are some safety measures to follow while travelling with the kids in a rented car during the holidays.
