THORNHILL, ON, July 5, 2012 /CNW/ - Summer is the highly anticipated
season for family travel, but travelling with kids doesn't always feel
like a vacation.
"A smooth and stress-free vacation begins well before you board the
plane," said Silvana Aceto, Media & PR Specialist, CAA South Central
Ontario (CAA SCO). "The key is being prepared."
Arrive early at the airport
Ask to be placed near an empty seat, if possible
Bring books, games and toys to entertain your child in the terminal and
during the flight
Take advantage of pre-boarding offers to give you a few extra minutes to
get your kids settled in their seats and bags stowed away
"Travelling without proper documentation for children can complicate or
ruin your travel plans," added Aceto.
Remember to take the correct travel documents. Whether alone or
accompanied by an adult, each child travelling abroad must have a valid
passport and may also require supporting documentation such as:
Any legal documents pertaining to custody
A parental consent letter if child is travelling with one parent,
without either parent or alone
Any status documents from Citizenship and Immigration Canada
Prior to any travel with a child, parents should contact the embassy or
consulate of all countries their child will be visiting to inquire
about entry and exit requirements.
