freedom... to take your family on the road

Think hard about the ages and personalities of your children the constraints of car travel, before packing toys and games for the trip.

  • Do your children get car sick? If so, you will want to avoid anything visual.
  • Do you have a variety of music to entertain everyone throughout the journey?

Here are some do's and don'ts for child car travel:

  • For peace of mind, take your own child or booster seat as requests for these items cannot be guaranteed in all cases due to limited availability in some locations.
  • Bring some suitable reading material.
  • Allow each child to bring one toy or game to play with alone.
  • Play 'I Spy'. This can drive parents to insanity in 10 minutes, but small children love it and generally lose concentration before everyone loses patience.
  • Play '20 Questions', the old 'animal, vegetable or mineral' thinking game in its simplest form. Good for children of 8 and over.
  • Play 'Collecting', a simple race to 'collect' objects you might see from the car window. Each person chooses their object - red cars, for example, or a certain petrol sign - and keeps their own score.
  • Make frequent stops for refreshments, leg-stretching and restroom breaks.
  • Have an emergency stash of food in the car in case you can't stop when you want to. Dried fruit and glucose provide much-needed energy.
  • Try and get them to look out of the window - that's why you're travelling!

  • Have games or food that can be fought over or spilled easily.
  • Allow children to spend too long with Playstations or books - constant use of the eyes in a moving car can induce nausea.
  • Let games get so raucous that they distract the driver.
