Printable trip planner for parents or families

We love a holiday on KiddyCharts, which is why we have such an extensive travel section on the site. We want you all to enjoy your holidays as much as we do, which is why we have created a printable trip planner for parents and families.

This is going to help you get your trip planned, and perfect before you leave the front door. We also have ideas within it for recording your favourite places within the trip too.

The first thing to do when you are planning a holiday, is to make sure you have picked the right destination. We have a few ideas within our travel section, including Italy and The Netherlands, as well as some within the UK too.

You’ll also need to make sure you have the itinerary ideas ready, as well as your mode of transport. Are you going to use a rental car, or rely on public transport?

What included in the printable trip planner

The first three pages, within this free 9-page pack, including the cover, and two very important planning pages for your trips as a family:

  • Itinerary, which incorporates:
    • Information on the accommodation during your trip, and
    • Things to see on the way too, in our section on essential stops.
  • Must see ideas for the trip, including
    • Places to eat,
    • Things to do,
    • Your schedule, and finally
    • Date and location: so you can print more than one of these for any of the attractions that you are going to do.

Our next two sheets within the trip planner help you to stay on track with your packing and expenses in the holiday. Our expense sheet includes a budget goal, to help make sure you aren’t overspending on the vacation too.

The last pages are to record the memories from the trip.

We have provided you with a sheet to add your photos to help with the memories of the trip, alongside any tickets that you might like to stick into the trip planner.

Finally, there are a couple of journal pages for you to add your thoughts from the trip to as well. you can, of course, print out more of them if you need to do so.

We have loads of other planner resources on the site. Do have a little look at what we here alongside this resource for your holiday. You might want to print out a few activities for the kids from either our printables or activities areas on the site too.

It always helps to have ideas and activities to hand when you are going away as well. You might like our road trip planner in the shop too.
