This book is the definitive resource for planning family travel. Our family has hit 10 countries on three continents, and this guide even taught me a thing or two! Take the stress out of your next journey and give this guide a read first, so you can concentrate on the most important aspects of your trip – fun and relaxation.

The Travel Mamas Guide is funny and easy to read, with short, practical chapters about budgeting, food, accommodation options, packing, modes of travel, and even how to make room for romance. What I appreciated most about the Travel Mamas’ Guide is Colleen’s straight talk, honest opinions and mom-tested advice about what works best for family travel – on the road, in the air or at sea.

I LOVE this book. Filled with all kinds of travel (and parenting) tips that are at once comforting and informative, The Travel Mamas’ Guide is an excellent resource, to be read again and again, and bought as gifts for friends. Yes, it’s that good.

The Travel Mamas’ Guide steps into the void as it’s packed with practical advice for parents on a range of topics – feeding, diapering, potty training on the road, flying with kids, family road trips, cruising with kids etc. This guide is the tool box that parents need to effectively manage the logistics of traveling with kids without feeling overwhelmed.
