Top Tips on how to survive a road trip with kids

Are you planning a road trip with kids soon?  Last year we decided to visit Disneyland Paris by taking a road trip.  This meant a 2.5 hour car journey down south followed by a Eurotunnel of 30 minutes and a 3 hour drive in France the following day.

In 5 weeks time, we’ll be doing the same again (Yikes, wish us luck!)  Travelling for long distances with kids can have its challenges, so I decided to compile a list to share with you guys my top tips on how to survive a road trip with kids.  Nothing is worse that not being prepared so PREPARATION is key.  If you are travelling abroad, get yourself down to your local Halfords and ask them what items you will need.  I would list what we needed for France but it can differ across countries.  In addition, pop to Kwik Fit to make sure everything looks safe on your car for long distance travel.


If driving abroad and need some tips on what to prepare and pack for the kids, take a look at Playdays and Runways post.  With that being said, let’s look at the top tips on how to survive a road trip with kids!

Hi and welcome to The Willow Tree. I’m Michelle, also known as Shel and I am a mama to three beautiful crazy kids – I have two handsome boys and a wild and wonderful girl.

I really wanted a concrete place to share my love for travel, in particular Disney and offer my readers a chance to gain some knowledge around what we love to do as a family of 5.

I share our family adventures which include days out, travel advice and tips, holiday reviews, restaurant visits and of course, our love for Disney, including Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney World.

Life is about creating memories, and here we are sharing them with you
