Travelling with a family

Most people have travelled in hospitality exchange contexts on their own or as a couple before they had their own family. Then it can be a bit tricky to figure out, how to get about with a larger number of persons and especially with kids.

Here you can find a compilation of tips, safety issues and some legal points to keep in mind when travelling with children.

We also have regional sites with the same structure but also tips about playgrounds, child-friendly caf�s and restaurants and actvities per age group and also
