There was a similar question yesterday. I am against giving any sedatives to young children who have to travel. Most sedatives have the opposite effect to what you would want and causes children to be miserable and irritable and makes them over-active. You can try the children's form of Rescue remedy which should have the desired effects for both of your children.
