You have big dreams of a great family vacation. But unfortunately, all too often, things seem to unravel and it never quite lives up to expectation. Well, eliminate some of those vacation woes with a few of these travel tips from our staff here at Empire Rent A Car of NYC.

Family Vacation Tips1. Get buy in.

As much as possible, try to get everyone on board with where you’re headed. A sour attitude will quickly spoil a family vacation.

2. Set a budget.

You may have heard us say this one before, but it’s vital for your vacation sanity for you to set a budget in advance. That way, you can decide how to best allocate your funds and not go broke in the process.

3. Consider a staycation.

You don’t have to travel outside New York to find great things to do. More than likely, there’s a long list of attractions you and your family have yet to explore right outside your door. And this way, you get to avoid all the packing!

4. Bring help.

When you have littles, vacation can become overwhelming fast. So you can actually get a break, consider bringing help. Maybe let the grandparents tag along or hire a nanny for the occasion. That way, you can get some outings sans kids and have extra hands to pitch in.

5. Don’t pack ’em in.

Instead of renting a compact car for your getaway, give everyone in your family plenty of elbow room in a minivan rental. Minivans were built for family travel, and your family will love you for it.
