MANCHESTER, England, December 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

We all know how family vacations can be. There's the packing, the organising and the mad rush to get there on time. Sometimes you wonder why you bother at all... Well, with our help, these family holiday nightmares can soon be over! All it takes is a bit of planning and you'll be heading for that trip of your dreams without a care in the world. Sound too good to be true? If you don't believe us, then read on...

Family holiday checklist

  • Airport parking - Flying from Manchester? Then make the most of the cheap parking at Manchester Airport, as this is one way to ensure that your trip abroad doesn't start on a bad note. Your time to get organised becomes more flexible and you aren't forced to rely on the unpredictability of taxis. Don't forget if you pre-book you can save up to 70%. And what's more, when you get off the plane, you can just jump straight in the car and head back home for a nice relax and wind down after your amazing holiday; what more could you ask for?
  • Pack in advance - another means to avoid unnecessary stress is to make sure that you start to organise your luggage well before you jet off across the globe. Leaving everything to the last minute will inevitably cause you to panic (imagine if you forgot something important!) so get those suitcases packed early!
  • Travel entertainment- another source of tension has to be the infamous words, 'I'm bored.' There's nothing worse than being two minutes into your flight, only to be faced with kids who are already causing chaos. That's why it's a good idea to pack some goodies that can entertain them whilst you're travelling. Take a couple of magazines, distract them with a handheld console, keep them occupied with a travel Connect 4. Whatever you do, don't neglect plane activities, as you'll soon regret it if you do!

Here are just a few of our tips to stop you from tearing your hair out over the next family vacation. Bear them in mind, and we promise that your holiday will run far more smoothly!
