Hari Raya Aidilfitri or Eid al-Fitr that falls on the first Shawwal, the tenth month of the Islamic calendar is a time for many things, but mostly it’s the time to ask for forgiveness, to celebrate all of the blessings granted upon us, and most importantly, to treasure our silaturahim.


Apart from reminding parents to service the car, reload enough balance in Touch-N-Go card, and have a rest at the nearest R & R stop when tired, here are the most long-anticipated child-friendly travel tips not only for balik kampung and to visit our relatives but also for going holiday vacation with your kids:


1. Plan a trip around your children sleeping time:



In battling with a long drive or possible traffic jam, find the most suitable time to start your trip using the Waze app. Stuck in the jam for hours while kids are fighting or crying in the backseat is parents' worst nightmare. Consider travelling when the children are fast asleep during the journey. Through the night and early morning is more likely but don’t drive if you are tired or sleepy.


2. Equip your car with child-friendly equipment:



First, get your child a suitable and proper car seat if needed. This is not only important in assuring their safety but also for their comfort. Second, add removable window cover to block the harsh sunlight during the day trip or a blanket in your car accessories to keep them warm during the night or cold weather.  Cater your worries to change the toddler’s dirty diaper by pack along water-proof diaper changing kit in the car.


3. Prepare some entertainment:



If you are dreading the non-stop question “Are we there yet?” from your child, trust us, we understand. Therefore, it’s important for you to keep them amused. From digital tablets, films, and games, to a playlist of kids music, audio books and cuddly toys – choose the source of entertainment that you feel suitable to make them feel occupied. Even better, play road games with them or let them pack a few of their own favourite toys. Stop every two or three hours to let children stretch their legs.


4. Predict the unpredictable; always spare and carry extra essentials:



A little bump on the road is children spilling the food or drinks to their clothes or having surprise confetti in his pamper therefore be super parents by foreseeing the unknown. You never know, so always pack extra for clothes and nappies. When there are poop, vomit and grease - baby wipes to the rescue!


5. Keep it clean:



Filthy environment throughout the journey is never fun. Invest in disposable container or airtight plastic bag for temporary use in keeping the trash away in your car. From odour of dirty nappies to sticky food plastic wrapper, tuck it away not only for more comfortable journey but also for keeping the cleanliness in your vehicle.
