Delsey Reveals Secrets to Traveling With Children

Proper Planning and Perfect Packing Can Lead to Peace of Mind

HANOVER, MD--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2013) - With over 65 years of experience in the travel industry, Delsey, creator of feature-rich luggage reveals secrets to traveling with children. Guaranteed to make the trip better for families, as well as for those traveling next to them, Delsey is sharing ten tips for those traveling with young children:

1) Travel light
Sometimes less is more. And choosing the correct carry-on is one of those times. The new Delsey Helium Colours hard-side collection is compact, lightweight and comes in four vibrant hues -- emerald green, neon blue, rose and classic black -- offering travelers a stylish go-to for all their travel needs.

2) Get an early start
Are there optimal hours for children to travel? Is it easier to make the trip during the day, keeping little ones awake, or attempt a red-eye, and hope everyone can get some sleep? Considering individual needs prior to booking a flight or planning a road trip is always a good starting point.

3) Prepare for your trip, and then some!
Toys, medication, diapers and other items used during the travel timeframe must be easily accessible. And, what if connecting flights are missed? What if weather is bad, postponing arrival at the final destination? It is worth packing a few additional items, just in case.

4) Kids-pack
Individual back-packs for each child are great way to ensure favorite items are not forgotten. Letting children select their own books, toys and personal items will ensure they are happy with their en route choices.

5) Don't forget the snacks!
Travel snacks like yogurt tubes, granola bars, string cheese, and squeezable apple sauce are easy to pack. Fun snacks will keep tummies full when real meals are hard to come by. Refillable water bottles are also a wise choice for the whole family.

6) Sanitizer, wipes, tissues, oh my!
Perfect for cleaning spills, wiping a runny nose, or sprucing up outfits upon arrival, grabbing a few tissues will keep everyone looking and feeling their best.

7) Quick change artists...
Travelers pack outfits in their checked bags. Seasoned travelers always carry an extra outfit or two with them. From unexpected motion sickness to spilled food or drinks, these ensembles come in handy more often than not. And remember, dress for comfort.

8) A busy child is a happy child
DS, iPad, iPhone, mini-DVD player and headphones usually top the entertainment list. Come prepared with fully charged devices and back-up batteries. When it's time to unplug, sing along songs, visual scavenger hunts, spelling bees, 20 questions, I Spy, and naming the capital cities of each state are interactive games that can turn travel time into quality time for the entire family.

9) Sleep gear
Whether you are heading off on a long road trip, or taking a red-eye flight, planning to make sleep part of the journey is essential. Small cushions, neck pillows, cozy blankets and favorite plush animals will help little ones (and those around them!) catch some must needed Zzzzz's.

10) Travel lighthearted
Patience is everything, and your good time is what you make it. Keep things light, upbeat and positive, and enjoy every minute (or almost every minute!) of your trip.
