Departure Day Travel Checklist

Departure Day Looms… the final 24 hours before travel are either horrendously stressful or as easy as checking items off a list.  That is why we have developed a Departure Day Travel Checklist that takes the stress out of remembering what to do.

We start planning really early, which does spread out the time preparing for a trip.  We do this because invariably one or both children get sick in the lead up to the trip and have a day or two off school…  and that means some glitches in the preparation.  (Being self employed means that work has to be done at a faster past than normal prior to a holiday or postponed until after the holiday) .

Remember – packing for a mum and two kids will easily take 3 hours or more – without distractions.

You can find our Departure Day Travel Checklist below in a table, or if you like to print things out, click here our  for our FREE printable PDF   Departure_Day_Final_Checklist  We hope you find it useful!
