Travelling with children is never easy; however, parents can make their holidays in Spain as relaxing as possible by following a series of 'top tips' compiled by the Rough Guide group.
According to the Rough Guide to Travel with Babies and Young Children, parents can improve their holiday experience by packing clothing that is light and easy to wash and by ensuring that bulky items such as dolls and teddy bears are left at home.
The guide also recommends that parents opt for the best accommodation they can afford, as families tend to spend a lot of their holiday time "at base" relaxing around the pool and engaging in sporting activities.
Families are also advised to plan their days carefully and ensure that any 'must-see' attractions are visited early in the holiday.
"Do what you most want to first - with children, the best laid plans can go to pot. This way, if it doesnt work out at the first try, youll always have a second shot," the guide said.
Meanwhile, a recent study by Saga revealed that an increasing number of Britons are opting to enjoy holidays in Spain with members of their extended family.
More than half of people in their late 20s holiday with their parents in order to cut costs.
