Staying Safe When Travelling as a Family

Posted on November 20, 2020 at 8:21 pm

Staying safe is very important when going anywhere with your family, be it in the UK or further afield, and travel safety considerations should always take priority. Here are some tips to help you stay safe when on holiday or travelling with family:

  • Understand the local customs and culture. Do your research before you go and make sure you are familiar with what the country will expect of you.
  • Always stay aware of your surroundings. Don’t go to places that seem too quiet – there might be a reason for that. There is no need to be afraid of everything, but have your wits about you. This advice will serve you well wherever you are travelling in the world.
  • Stay together. Don’t let people go off alone, especially younger children. Ensure that you know and are familiar with the area before allowing this, and even then, always keep an eye out for each other.

Travelling to Portugal with your Family

Posted on September 29, 2020 at 11:58 am

Every family needs to have a holiday for their own mental health, and to bond together as a family unit. A holiday to Portugal is a popular choice for all kinds of families – those who love activities, sports and adventures, as well as those who like to have a quiet and calm time.

Portugal is, for starters, a beautiful location for a holiday, with wonderful beaches and stunning views everywhere. If you prefer to have a bit of a buzz, many larger towns and cities are popular tourist hotspots, including the country’s capital of Lisbon. Other major cities are also a good opportunity to visit cultured places and enjoy the range of activities that are on offer.

There are plenty of family friendly activities available in Portugal, from sports and entertainment to relaxing days out that you can enjoy together. Not least, the weather will make the trip far more enjoyable than a holiday taken in the UK!
