Infographic: Travel Advice from your kids


?????Savvy parents are increasingly including their kids in family vacation planning.  In fact, 63 percent of parents said their children influenced their choice of vacation destination, according to the 2014 Portrait of the American Travelers survey.  With this in mind, Alamo Rent A Car partnered with Eileen Ogintz, nationally syndicated family travel columnist and creator of TakingTheKids.com, to create an original infographic from the kids’ point of view.  The Alamo infographic features key stats and 10 original ideas from kids to help parents everywhere increase the fun while planning, packing, participating in activities and making memories for their family vacations.  No matter where you take the kids or how much you spend on your family vacation, what’s important is enjoying your time together and making memories for a lifetime!

    This is great! Thanks for sharing, Eileen. I’m always searching for family travel tips, but tips from the kids? That’s a first for me!

    A great resource you may want to share with your readers is Real Family Trips. It’s full of family-uploaded itineraries and ratings that make it easier to plan a vacation. We found it pretty helpful. :)
