Family Vacation Tips You Shouldn’t Leave Home Without

Make your family vacation an occasion to remember with these tips.

Family vacations make for amazing memories, so you want to set yourself up for success. Whether you’re headed to your annual timeshare week, on a road trip or tripping around the globe, these travel tips will keep you and your kids happy on your next family vacation.

Keep Them Entertained

It would be awesome if you could beam yourselves Star Trek-style to your destination, but alas, the only way to get to there is to travel there. So, our advice is to make the journey as easy and fun as possible. And a great way to do that is to keep the kids entertained. Sure, the plane trip or car ride starts out fun, but after half an hour, the novelty wears off. That’s when books, activities, and devices come in handy. Make sure that tablets are charged and content is downloaded—Wi-fi is not guaranteed. And have back-up unplugged resources like books or travel games in case of technical difficulties. Keep everything easily accessible in bags and don’t forget the headphones!

Snack Attack

The only thing worse than a hangry adult is a hangry 5-year-old. Reduce tantrums by keeping the kiddos well-fed and well-hydrated. (But not so well-hydrated that they need a bathroom break every five minutes.) You’ll want to choose travel-friendly snacks. If you’re flying, check the TSA guidelines to make sure everything gets through. Unless you have a cooler, choose shelf stable items that aren’t too messy and aren’t too stinky. When it comes to drinks, don’t rely on the drink service. The timing is unpredictable and those cups are so easy for kiddos to tip over. Instead, we recommend bringing empty no-spill water bottles that you can fill once you’ve passed security. Finally, be ready with gum if your little ones have ear trouble. It may not solve everything, but when the pressure is intense, just the idea of gum can sometimes distract them enough to make it through.

Set a Budget

Travel presents so many new and interesting things. So, it makes sense that kids will want those things. But the requests for snacks and souvenirs gets old by day two. Keep everyone happy by defining your guidelines in advance. Setting a budget for how much they can spend is one approach. This helps the little ones narrow down what’s most important to them. Budgeting is a valuable lesson, so why not make your family vacation an education? Another approach is giving them a set number of toys or goodies they can buy. Maybe two souvenirs for the week or one dessert a day. Planning in advance can keep the requests down, help you all stick to your vacation budget and keep the inevitable stuffed animals and fridge magnets to a minimum.

Kid-Friendly Accommodations

Travel makes for tired kids—and tired parents! Your family vacation will be so much better if you can all lay your heads on just the right pillow each night. Carefully research your lodgings to make sure they meet your needs. If your kids are small and/or noisy, a hotel that caters to families will be a good fit or maybe a townhouse or cottage would keep your neighbors happier.

Don’t forget that kids love hotels and hotel stuff. So, you can keep your budget in check and up the awesome factor by maximizing the included amenities. Some kids go crazy for the pool, and for others, it’s the breakfast buffet with a pancake printer. Still others just want to push the elevator buttons. Figure out what it is that sparks joy in your kiddos and find accommodations that provide that experience.

Make Your Family Vacation YOURS

No two families are exactly alike, so your family vacation should cater to your family. Consider what you all like to do and choose appropriate activities and destinations. If you have very young children, you may not want to schedule endless museum days or even long plane rides. If you have food requirements or food sensitivities, ensure that you can meet those at your destination. Whatever your needs, your vacation will be better if you’re realistic and plan for the inevitable.

Finally, allow your vacations to grow with you. Your Disney timeshare may work for you now, but as the kids get older, princess tea parties may be less appealing. Like so much in parenting, your family vacation should be flexible.

Frequently Asked Questions ?

How does PMG get me out of my timeshare contract?

PMG is not a resale, transfer, or donation company. We are consumer advocates—we help to negotiate the release of your timeshare contract obligation. We do not buy, sell, or rent your timeshare. Simply put, we help you to get out of your timeshare contract forever.

How long does the process usually take?

Usually less than 12 months, but it all depends on your situation. Let us help you. Speak to your advisor about the time, and what delays the resorts have put into place to prevent timeshare owners from departing their ownership. If you have a mortgage or past due maintenance fee, the process takes more time.

How much is my timeshare worth?

This is probably going to hurt, but whether you paid $5,000 or $50,000 for your timeshare, the IRS values all timeshares as worthless investments. In addition, that timeshare would have negative value due to the annual maintenance fee bill which compounds year after year. That is until PMG helps you cancel your timeshare.

Can I use your service if I still have a balance owed on my mortgage?

Yes. Whether you bought your timeshare 20 days ago or 20 years ago, PMG has a solution for you and is here to help.

Will my name be off the timeshare?

Yes! Permanently! GUARANTEED!

In addition to getting me out of my timeshare, can you recover the money I’ve already spent on mortgage payments and maintenance fees?

While we are able to recover money in rare cases, beware of any timeshare cancellation company that entices you with the promise of fund recovery. The truth is, the resorts are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken for timeshares.

Are your consumer advocates really “consumer advocates”, or is that just a fancy word for salesperson?

Because most of our clients have had their trust betrayed by timeshare salespeople, we understand how some consumers can become a bit jaded. When you call us for a consultation, that’s exactly what you get, a consultation. At PMG, our job is not to sell you; our job is to help you get out of your timeshare. Which is why we have numerous 5-star reviews and an “A” (excellent) rating from the BCA.

Why should I choose PMG to get me out of my timeshare?

We go above and beyond for our customers by helping to protect you, and have the best success rate in the industry, rated 5-stars by clients. We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best customer service in the industry. When you contact our company, you speak to a live person, not an automated system or voicemail. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, and we can provide documented proof of our success in helping customers just like you.

What happens after I sign up with you? Will I be apprised of your progress?

At PMG, we pride ourselves on our hands-on, boutique-style customer service, so every new client will work with our expert, experienced team whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. We are always just a phone call away.

How much is your fee?

Not all timeshare experiences are created equal. Some are more complicated than others, and every situation is different. That’s why our trained timeshare elimination consultants will ask you a series of questions designed to determine exactly what needs to be done to terminate your timeshare, how long it will take, and how they can best advocate for you. We will always seek the most cost-effective route for you.

What if I still have more questions?

Canceling a timeshare contract is not a cookie cutter process. With each situation being unique, once you complete the form below an experienced consumer advocate will call you today to discuss your options.
