As to go on vacation not only need clothes, add in your list these important accessories:
Towels:Go to an apartment, or to a hotel, bringing our own towels turns out to be a great idea;hotels usually do not let their guests take them outside the resort, so if you want to go to a beach further afield, or even to a water park, you would have to buy new ones or pay to use the existing ones at the hotel.In a rented apartment, often they do not even have towels to offer to the guests.Ask before, not to be caught unawares.
Creams and hygiene products:It is very important to take these products from home: when you reach your destination, the chances are that prices will rise enormously, so save your money by taking products that you already have.Take sun cream, after sun, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner.

Long car trips:For car trips is required, in addition to a snack, take music.Time will pass faster and will keep your kids entertained.Also bring a blanket and a nightgown, because if the kids want to sleep, and the weather is cool, or the air conditioner is on, they are more likely to get a little cold.
If going camping:Save money when making your food at the camp.Take a gas bottle and, if you want, a grill, and you’ll have everything you need to make a quick but good meal.Also carry a Swiss Army Knife, as well as a flashlight and tennis or off-road boots.

Beach bag:To avoid ruining your favorite bag, take a beach bag for the sun-bathing days.Some cloth or straw will do just fine.
Thermal bag:For warmer days and mainly to take the sandwiches to the beach.
To the beach:Take a sun hat and a windshield!They will be great allies;the windshield can also be used to make shade for the little ones, which is a great advantage.
Sigg Bottles (or the like):To not walk to buy bottled water daily, use a Sigg bottle.It’s great for the environment and the wallet!
Sewing kit:Especially with children, it is normal to have tears: avoid buying new clothes when you can sew them in an instant.
For the beach of the little ones:Do not forget to bring buoys and clamps, but attention: all care is little!If you have the opportunity, put a bracelet on the children so you can clearly distinguish them on a wide beach and do not move away from them when they are playing with the inflatables because a little wind can take them away.
Here are several tips for various types of vacations:
If you are going to travel by car:If you go by car and take your children, take a snack;the service stations are very expensive and the food you get there will not be as nutritious as a piece of fruit or a sandwich made at home.Take an alcohol gel disinfectant so they can clean their hands after eating.

To the field:Take an anti-mosquito;there is nothing worse than having our holiday days spoiled by the annoying mosquito bites.
If going north:Take a rain hat and warm clothes for the night.When the sun goes down, the temperature drops a lot.
If you go abroad:Take a phrase book or a dictionary, so you can communicate with ease and without confusion.
If you go on vacation to an apartment:Surely you will have food in the fridge in the house and you will not need it;if you have the possibility of cooking in your apartment, take several basic things.Include: rice, pasta, olive oil, oil, salt, pepper, vinegar, crackers and cereals.
If you go on holiday to a hotel:Beware of arrival times and opening hours of restaurants, buffets and shops of the venture: there is nothing worse than arriving at eleven o’clock at night, with an empty belly, and not find a place to eat.Inquire, and if necessary, bring a snack with you.
In addition to these tips we have already given you, also take into account the following points:
Do not forget the basics:Sometimes they are the ones who pass us by the most.Brush brush and toothpaste, a hair comb, leftover underwear, deodorant, intimate hygiene products, mobile phone charger and toilet paper.
Instead of folding clothes:Leave it on the hangers and wrap it in each other.Contrary to what it looks like, it will fit more clothes in the suitcase, you will lessen your sweat, and you will have the facility to reach the destination and hang everything in the blink of an eye, without having to worry about anything!
Map and camera:Two essential not to forget.One to keep you always on your route and another to later remember your fantastic vacation!

Detergent:Be prepared to wash laundry and/or dishes.It is always good to be prepared with at least one laundry detergent to wash it during the trip;especially as we are in the summer, your clothes will dry from one day to the next.If you go to an apartment, be ecological and forget the plastic dishes and cutlery, and prefer to use crockery that can be reusable.
