What NOT to pack when travelling with kids

Want to travel lighter? Then trust us: you really do not need to pack these




 1 of 1 

There's really no need to load yourself up with the following:

Inflatable beach toys, buckets and spades – buy them when you get there

Too many nappies – ditto

Bananas – will go black and squishy on the plane

Toys with small parts – they’ll get lost under the seat and you'll end up in an inelegant scrambling and with inconsolable child in tears

Noisy toys – they'll drive you and fellow passengers to distraction. Bring headphones if possible so games can be enjoyed in virtual silence!

Anything disposable that you can buy or borrow on holiday.
