    We’ve been traveling with both sets of grandparents since our little people were born and it’s been such a great experience for everyone (and just so helpful to have extra hands and eyes). I think it’s great you point out issues of who is going to be financially responsible as well. For us, it’s always important to communicate expectations both in terms of finance and time because we don’t want our parents, who are on fixed incomes, to feel financially strapped or trapped and we don’t want them to feel like they need to watch our children all the time just because they’re there (because they really are all kind enough to offer).

    We moved overseas a year ago and now it’s my goal to give my parents the gift of visiting us one year for Christmas. These are great tips for planning family( or any large groups) trips. It’s also a dream of mine to plan a family reunion trip one year. With this, maybe I can finally make it happen. Thanks!

    Great tips! I have a friend planning a multi-generational trip and I know it can be hard to satisfy everyone’s wants but with good planning, I think it is so nice to do together.

    We have been traveling with my parents ever since my kids were born! It is a fabulous way to travel! Parents get a bit of a break and grandparents get to come and enjoy priceless moments with their grandkids!
