Keep Kids from Getting Bored on Easter Drives with New Carrentals.co.uk Tips

London, UK (RPRN) 03/18/12 — Parents able to stave off kids' boredom on long journeys thanks to car hire comparison website

Carrentals.co.uk, the award-winning car hire price comparison website, has issued new tips and hints designed to make parents' lives easier this Easter. As families embark on long drives for the Easter weekend away, the website can help Mums and Dads to avoid the kids getting bored.

Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, says: “Many kids get bored on long car journeys and inevitably begin to harass Mum and Dad with the 'Are we there yet?' question. However sticking to the tips we have issued can help to make things go more smoothly."

Top Tips from Carrentals.co.uk

Plan Ahead – Making lists of important things to take with you is a positive step. Things that will be in demand on the journey such as car seats, in-car entertainment and first aid kits can all be made ready well before setting out, making your life easier

Timing is Everything – Making an early morning start and getting on the road while the kids are still sleepy can help things to go better. Then you can make a pit stop for breakfast, wake the kids up and get them changed into clean clothing.

Pit-stops - Think about where you stop. Having somewhere interesting to look forward to is much better than anticipating just another motorway service station.

Entertainment – Kids need to stay occupied on a long drive - and portable DVD players, games consoles, mp3 players and e-book readers are all good ways of doing this. Other fun ways to pass the time are classic in-car games such as I Spy and the Licence Plate Game.

Snacks - Make sure that the children don't get restless through hunger or thirst by having plenty of food, snacks and cold drinks in the vehicle when you set out.

Think Outside of the Box - A fun pastime with a difference is giving the children a disposable camera with which they can create a holiday scrapbook with photos of the journey.

Follow the route - Mapping out the route can be fun too and can keep the kids interested. Give them a map of your journey and a highlighter pen.
