Any parent knows the unique challenges that come when travelling with kids. Long gone are the days of casually tossing some clothes in an overnight and jetting off on a moments notice. These days, even a quick trip to brunch require military like precision and planning. It gets even more complicated when you throw crossing borders into the mix. For many UAE families the summer months means travel, often to multiple destinations and involving a variety of transport and accommodation options. To help you navigate the globe a little more smoothly, we’ve put together our top 10 travel essentials for kids that you will definitely want to add to cart.
