Those jetting abroad with their children this summer have been offered some expert advice.
According to holiday firm Essential Travel, there are many ways in which parents can make their journeys a little easier.
Top tips include eating at a regular time when overseas and providing children with a "distraction pack", filled with books, toys and games.
"Encourage them to research the place you're visiting so they know a little bit about the history and food," the organisation noted.
Parents are also advised to ensure children have a copy of their hotel address and a telephone number in case they get lost.
In related news, Nikki Demaid, a childcare
manager with activity specialist Mark Warner, said the key to travelling with youngsters is to ensure they are kept occupied.
She added that parents can also keep kids happy by letting them sit beside the window when travelling.
