Car travel can be a flexible way to get your brood from point A to point B. Though you won't score points for eco-awareness, road trips offer families added flexibility to make stops and visit areas that are poorly served by public transit and pack more gear. And aside from your partner, there are no impatient passengers wanting to eject you or your kids from the vehicle.
While long distance car travel with young children may not evoke images of carefree adventure, recent restrictions on hand luggage and the increased wait time at airports, particularly in Europe, may make it more practical to travel by car than by air. The following tips will ensure that your next road trip with infants and toddlers is fun (or at least less painful than you may imagine) and help you deal with a resounding "Are we there yet?" from the biggest kid in the car.
The key to car travel with kids is to take it slow and easy. Have fun - you're on vacation.
