Holidays in Costa Blanca: The ultimate family checklist
With great family holidays, come great responsibilities. Travelling with your family is a totally different ball game compared to when it was just you and your partner, or a group of friends. Now that you’re travelling with children, you have more to worry about. However, this doesn’t mean it’s going to be all stress and no play; family holidays can be loads of fun, and provide many opportunities to create unforgettable memories and spend quality time with each other.

Holidays in Costa Blanca are becoming a popular choice for families. If you’re planning on visiting the sunny coast, here’s a family checklist to help you plan the best getaway ever:


Sort out your documents

Visas, passports, and insurance documents should all be ready before the trip. Make sure your passports are valid, and that your existing insurance covers you and your possessions overseas. If it doesn’t, take out separate travel insurance. You can also print out your boarding passes at home; this will ensure that you have fewer queues to stand in when you get to the airport. It’s also important to make a copy of all your important documents: travel insurance, tickets, passports, hotel confirmation receipts, etc.



Book your hotels in advance

You can’t really ‘wing it’ when you have kids, unless you’re all okay with sleeping in a cramped hotel room in the middle of nowhere. It’s better to book your accommodation in advance; that way, you can make sure it has everything you need, that it’s in a suitable location, and that it’s child-friendly. If you want a slightly cheaper alternative, you could always go camping. There are plenty of resorts and campgrounds for your holidays in Costa Blanca. To avoid hassle, find one with pre-pitched tents or motorhomes.


Plan a loose itinerary

Holidays in Costa Blanca are great for families with kids of all ages. There are so many beautiful beaches and wonderful things to see and do. Planning an itinerary in advance will make you feel more relaxed and prepared. You don’t have to plan everything down to the last detail, but make sure you’ve booked or done research on the must-see attractions. Once you’ve got your main attractions sorted, you can venture out and explore new things that you might not have seen on the internet.


What to pack

Packing for your trip is one of the most important parts of planning a holiday, especially when you’re travelling with your family. Here’s a travel packing checklist that can save you a lot of hassle and frustration:



Comfortable walking shoes


A pair of jeans

A light jacket

A nice top

Comfortable pants


A sunhat


Swimming costume



Plug converter


Mobile devices and chargers


Basic first aid kit

Beach towels


Travel documents

Hand luggage

Wallet (with cards and cash)
