The holiday season is upon us, and you've probably made your holiday plans long in advance. But if you're still deciding on where to spend your time off, the following tips may help.

Take action:
Decide beforehand how much you can and want to spend; choose a destination that pleases most members of the family; be realistic about travelling times; have the car serviced before you go; try and avoid overnight flights with babies or toddlers; check the internet for pictures of your destination and avoid the surprise element; choose easy-going pleasant holiday companions; read the small print on all special offers; see your doctor and get any medication you may need; take as little luggage as possible; and take comfortable shoes, lots of underwear and clothes that suit the climate.

Suffer from motion sickness? Here's help.
