1) It's always a good practice to reach airport well before check-in time especially when there are children with you and a lot of luggage too. If we are in hurry there are chances that either we forget some luggage or start scolding the kids to hurry up with their things. This definitely spoils the vacation mood.

2) Take enough material of entertainment for the kids especially when your kids don't like sitting idly for hours. It can be anything ranging from video games to puzzle books.
