Travelling with grandparents can be a delicious adventure, but make sure to take into consideration these tips so you can concentrate on enjoying.
Book special services
Particularly the use of wheelchairs on airports, or the specifications of special diets if these are necessary, must be made beforehand with your travel agency or your airline. Don’t leave it for the last minute, because you might have difficulties to manage once the trip is about to begin.
Prepare your documents
In the case of grandparents, it can be a good idea to let them keep with themselves only copies of their documents and that you keep the originals. In case that they need them, besides take into consideration that medical prescriptions are also a part of the documentation, so make sure to have the necessary ones, and that they are signed and sealed accordingly by the treating doctor.
Prefer tours or cruises
The fact that you have permanent attention and a special care for itineraries can prove to be necessary to make the trip with elderly people, so tours and cruises can be a great option. Just take into consideration both the preference or the difficulties that the person might have with regards to mobility or eating.
