Things to think about before booking a kids caravan holiday in Devon

●      Budget

Obviously, you can’t put a price on your children’s happiness, but maybe you should! Making sure that you think about all the costs that will be associated with the holiday will help you to budget and help prevent overspending. Using a budget planner is a good idea to keep track. Aside from the actual accommodation itself, there are also travelling costs (petrol or public transport), food (both self-catered or eating out), daytime and evening activities (that aren’t included in your holiday package).

  • Travelling

How will you actually get to your holiday destination, are you going to be driving? Or using public transport like trains? When travelling with children, you’re going to want it to be as stress free as possible so it is advisable to plan ahead and try to avoid busy times such as rush hour. Not only can traveling during peak times cause delays but it can also be stressful for both yourself and your children.

  • Activities

A key part of your child-friendly Devon caravan holiday is going to involve planning a range of activities to keep them entertained both during the day and in the evenings. Choosing a caravan park with lots of facilities that you can make use of is important for example swimming pools are great additions to holiday parks as they can keep children entertained for hours. Similarly are there places outside of the caravan park you can visit? Maybe a beach?
