13 tips to travel fearless with kids by bus in India 

Travelling by bus in India with kids can be both exciting and challenging. Here are some tips to help make your journey with your kids smoother and more enjoyable:

1. Choose your bus seats wisely:

Try to book the front seats of the bus, which are less bumpy and provide a better view to your kids. Avoid sitting at the back, as it can be more bumpy and noisy.

2. Pack plenty of snacks and water for your kids:

Carry enough snacks and drinks to keep your child hydrated and satiated. You can also pack food items that they enjoy and are easy to eat on the go. Pack a variety of snacks and drinks to keep your kids energised and satisfied throughout the journey. Avoid sugary snacks to prevent excessive energy bursts.

3. Carry entertainment:

Keep your child entertained with activities like reading books, playing games, listening to music, or watching movies. Also, carry a charger to keep your devices charged throughout the journey. Bring games, colouring books, activity pads, or small toys to keep your children entertained during the journey. This will help minimise boredom and restlessness.

4. Dress comfortably:

Dress your child in comfortable clothes and shoes suitable for long hours of sitting. Also, carry a jacket and blanket to keep them warm during overnight journeys. To ensure a comfortable journey, bring small blankets and pillows for your children to use while they rest or sleep during the trip. Layering is advisable as the temperature can vary on buses.

5. Keep a first aid kit:

Carry a small first aid kit containing essential medicines and items like band-aids, antiseptic cream, and insect repellent.

6. Plan for frequent bathroom breaks:

Make sure to use the restroom before boarding and plan for frequent bathroom breaks during the journey. This can help avoid discomfort and prevent health issues.

7. Be cautious with food and water:

Avoid eating street food or drinking tap water and stick to bottled water and packaged food. This can help prevent health issues that can ruin the trip.

8. Be mindful of safety:

Keep your child close to you while boarding and de-boarding the bus and while getting on and off during breaks. Also, keep an eye on your surroundings and be cautious of your belongings. Make sure your children understand the importance of staying seated and buckling up during the bus ride. Remind them to avoid sticking their hands or heads out of the windows and to follow the bus driver’s instructions.

10. Noise-blocking headphones:

If your children are sensitive to noise or if you want to create a quieter environment for them, consider investing in noise-blocking headphones. These can help reduce the noise from the bus or other passengers.

11.  Plan travel around naptimes:

For longer journeys, try planning your travel around your children’s nap or sleep times. This can help minimise disruptions and keep them well-rested.

12. Stay organised:

Use small backpacks or bags to keep your kids’ essentials organised and easily accessible. This can include extra clothing, wipes, hand sanitiser, tissues, and any medications they may need.

13.  Engage with the surroundings:

During the journey, engage your children in conversation and point out interesting landmarks, landscapes, or buildings outside the bus windows. This can make the travel experience more enjoyable and educational for them.

By following these tips, you can make your bus journey with kids in India as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
