Organise the Easter Holidays with My Travel Checklist

All parents know that the worst thing about going on holiday is the preparation. From packing to cancelling the music lessons and remembering to arrange for a neighbour to feed the cat, things are usually left to the last minute and something is always forgotten. But families can avoid a potential Easter holiday nightmare, with My Travel Checklist from Mondial Assistance UK, an essential widget which helps them create their holiday preparation ‘to do’ list. And the best bit is it’s free.

Mondial Assistance, which will formally become Allianz Global Assistance in October, is reminding families of its neat app for mobile devices and computer desktops, which puts the travel checklist at the creator’s fingertips. Whether it’s arranging a full week away or keeping a schedule of day trips and when the kids are having sleepovers with friends, My Travel Checklist helps parents create and customise a list of items to pack, as well as things to take care of during the school holidays. Simply visit to install the widget onto a computer desktop and mobile device.

Families can build, save and update their lists, organising them in different categories. That makes it easy to create a packing list for a sleepover at friend’s one day and family ski trip the next. The widget allows users to input their gender, the nature of travel, the weather and temperature at their destination. In addition, travellers can add their own items to ensure nothing gets left off the holiday packing checklist.

“The school holidays take a lot of organising to keep the kids entertained, but if you’re planning a trip away too, there’s always that risk of forgetting one of those essential items,” says Ben Smart, Travel Director for Mondial Assistance UK. “But families can have a holiday packing list wherever they go, making it easy to keep tabs on everyone’s needs, including those of the family pets.

“My Travel Checklist is free and we’ve included a range of essential holiday items such as accommodation and travel insurance, to cover every aspect of a family trip. Lists can be uploaded to a range of mobile devices, emailed or accessed on a computer and printed out, making it the ideal solution for busy families planning to get away this Easter.”
