The Key to an Organized Family Vacation

I'm organizing a family trip to Florida in April, and my goal is to have a vacation that is stress-free and relaxing. I have most things planned, and I feel organized thanks to my favourite vacation planning tool -- a duo tang folder containing all the information we need for our trip.

I use a duo tang instead of a binder because I want something that I can easily fit into my carry on.

And, I fill the duo tang with sheet protector pockets, so that I can insert all our important documents.

My first document is a calendar, so I can quickly see my itinerary at a glance.

I use the other pockets for tickets, confirmation numbers, insurance information, addresses for mailing postcards and other important papers.

I also have a section for maps and directions to our accommodations and attractions.

I have used a family travel binder before, and I would never take a major trip without one again. It really is the best way I have found to I keep organized on vacation. What's your best trick for staying organized when travelling with your family?

  1. From a mom who is also a travel advisor- I love Umapped it is an online tool that is right on your smartphone. I provide it free to all my clients. It even updates with new gate/flight information live! Of course the internet is for looking and your trusted travel advisor is for booking! But organization is definitely key! Love the binder!

  2. Amazing family vacation tips. I will also share it with others. Moreover, save time and money by pre-booking meet and greet at Birmingham and get comfort and reliable experience.


Don't miss any of the fun....
