Start with short trips
Before going on a multi-day trip, it would be a good idea to first conduct a test run. A day trip to the museum or a theme park would be good. You can also go to a neighboring city for a day. The idea is for you to bond with your grandchildren and see how being together (alone, without the parents) is going to work.
Involve the children in planning
This idea is suggested not only for grandparent and grandchildren trips but for family trips in general. Considering the children’s input towards the travel plans will not only ensure that you will be giving them a good time, but will also give them a sense of achievement. It is also important to explain to the children your limitations. You may need to compromise for certain activities and involving the children in the planning stages will make it easier to explain to them why you cannot do certain things.
Seek the help of travel agents experienced in “grandtravel”
As I mentioned in the previous post, this kind of traveling is catching on quickly. As such, travel agencies and other entities involved in the industry are quickly coming up with ways to cater to people like you who want to travel with their grandkids. If you are not sure as to how to go about it, do not hesitate to get in touch with the nearest experienced agency. Keep an open mind and see what they have to offer you and if it would suit your needs and preferences.
