Can Au Pairs Travel with the Family?

Absolutely! If you have an au pair as part of your family, they can certainly travel with you on your Easter road trip. Having an au pair can be immensely helpful during the journey, especially in organising essentials, ensuring the children are well-prepared and cared for, and engaging them in fun activities along the way.

With the au pair’s assistance, you can rest assured that the holiday will run smoothly, and everyone will enjoy the trip to the fullest.

Fun Road Trip Games to Play:

  1. I Spy with My Little Eye: A classic game that never gets old! Ideal for children who are learning to read and write, “I Spy” encourages observation and interaction among the passengers.
