Essentials You Need For Your Next Family Trip

Essentials You Need For Your Next Family Trip


Whether for a week, a couple of days or even just overnight, planning a family trip can be fun and exciting, but also stressful. Making sure your whole family is on the same page while ensuring you don’t forget to plan or pack anything can be a lot to deal with, especially if there are younger children involved in your trip! There are some essentials that every family needs to consider when planning their next getaway and we’ve taken off some of that pressure with curating a list of essentials you need for every family trip!

Comfortable Shoes

Every family trip always comes with lots of walking! More walking than most would be accustomed to, especially for kids. Be sure to pack a pair of comfortable shoes for everyone, in order to make the long trip a breeze.


Kids are bound to get bored, especially if there’s a long road trip or plane involved! Pack a few games and small activities for younger children to play with to get their creative juices flowing and their eyes off a tablet for a while. Some ideas include colouring books, joke books or maybe even finger puppets!

First Aid Kit

A first aid kit is something that’s so important but often gets overlooked. Having a first aid kit comes handy in case of any accidents on the way to and during the trip.


Wipes can be a lifesaver especially when travelling with kids. Carrying both wet wipes and disinfectant wipes can keep both your hands and/or surfaces clean, for a worry free trip.

Garbage Bags/Extra Reusable Bags

It’s always a good idea to carry around extra bags, specifically for dirty laundry that accumulates throughout the trip.

Proof Of Vaccination

Until further notice, many provinces including Ontario require proof of double vaccination alongside government issued photo ID to enter select establishments. Be sure you have this on hand when travelling.

Making sure your accommodations are in order before heading out on your family trip is always crucial in order to avoid a situation where rooms may not be available where you travel.
