Keeping The Kids Happy This Easter

Alamo Rent A Car Offers Top Tips and Great Offers

Alamo Rent A Car is offering customers the ultimate Easter gift to help them get out and enjoy the first signs of Spring.  Booking a week’s rental from just £16 a day or 3 days for the price of 2* will put a spring in the step of anyone wanting to explore the UK this Easter.

Parents can make the most of the school holidays with Alamo’s great value offers, allowing them to pack in a whole week or a long weekend of exciting day trips and excursions to keep the kids amused.  And to make the Easter Holidays an even greater pleasure, Alamo is offering parents top tips on keeping their little monsters happy and content when out on the road.

Alamo’s Top Tips for Keeping the Kids Happy:
  • Make sure small children are sitting high enough to see out of the window and that they are in suitable seating for their age.
  • Keep the car well-ventilated or hire a car with air conditioning.  This will make children more comfortable and can help avoid travel sickness.
  • Avoid heavy meals, particularly meals with a high fat content, before and during travel.  Keep snacks and drinks plain and encourage children to sip water rather than gulp it.
  • Create a travel journal or make a map of where you are going to keep children interested in the journey and the landmarks they will see along the way.
  • Consider travelling overnight so children can sleep through the journey.  Or some families find an early morning start preferable.  Allow the children to sleep for a few hours in the car and then stop for breakfast when they wake.
  • Allow for plenty of time for the journey and include frequent stops – this also gives mum and dad a chance to share the driving.
  • Hire a bigger vehicle so that everyone is comfortable if you are at risk of having too much luggage.
  • Avoid hand-held computer games if children are prone to car-sickness instead go for old favourites like I-Spy.  Also, take an old favourite toy and something new that the children have never seen before to keep them interested for longer.
  • If all else fails, take a portable DVD player – guaranteed to keep the kids happy for hours!

Alamo has a wide range of cars all less than 6 months old and covered by roadside assistance.  So whether you need a family car such as the comfortable Vauxhall Vectra to provide some extra space for visiting relatives, or a nippy car about town such as the new Corsa, Alamo will get you on the road and help you to save wear and tear on your own car.

Dawn Clayton, Marketing Manager for Alamo said; “Whether it’s an Easter break for two or a family getaway, everyone can afford to get on the road and explore the UK’s fabulous cities and stunning countryside with our great offers this Easter.”
