Traveling with Toddlers: Expert Advice from Parents Who Know
Bébé Voyage is a community of globetrotting parents providing collectively-sourced, local knowledge and practical advice on traveling with your baby. With our toddler travel guides, you’ll gain access to the years of travel experience our Ambassadors and community members have learned on their many trips around the world with their own toddlers. Learn from our mistakes.
In a downloadable, easy to navigate format, we will provide you with everything you need to travel with your baby, infant or toddler–from planning your trip to insider information when you are at your destination. The Bébé Voyage travel guides feature:
- Recommendations on things to do for families traveling with 0 to 5-year-olds and their adventurous parents.
- Insights for how to best experience the culture like a local
- Interactive maps with parks, playgrounds, indoor play areas, as well as sites, museums, restaurants, and shopping
- Information on what local breastfeeding etiquette is and where to find a changing table
- A phrasebook specifically tailored for parents traveling with babies and small children
- Airport maps – tailored to families, we’ve pinpointed baby, toddler, and family-friendly amenities at airports around the globe, to help families no matter where they are flying from or through. Easily locate kids play spaces, nursing mothers rooms, and other helpful hints for various airports worldwide.
- Accommodation suggestions– neighborhoods, hotels, and resorts that are kid-friendly

As a bonus, you also get direct access to the Bébé Voyage Virtual Tours, created by families on the ground so you can see what is realistic to do in a day at your destination. These tours are created by our ambassadors who act as virtual guides, holding your hand on a mini-itinerary complete with photos and an interactive map, giving you insider recommendations, local finds, and great family-friendly ways to discover the city’s highlights.
Our guidebooks ensure you, the parents, have fun while also making the most of your trip, thanks to the information we gather from our ambassadors from all over the world — yes, these are people who live in the destination city or travel there regularly with their own children. From where to stay, what to eat, how to get around and what to do if you end up with an explosive diaper… explore your destination with ease using our family-friendly travel guides.
Many other family travel blogs offer information from the perspective of just one family. And while big travel review and book sites are getting better about including “family-friendly” filters, we’ve realized that there isn’t an agreed-upon standard and that their recommendations haven’t necessarily been vetted by real families with small children.
Because our travel guides are community sourced, Bébé Voyage is able to offer you a multitude of perspectives and recommendations that have been cross-checked by other families. We get continuous input both from families who live in these cities and who visit them. As our guidebooks offer a range of options, it ensures that whether you’re looking for a hidden gem only known to locals or the most baby-friendly way to manage the top sites, we’ve got you covered.
We’ve put a lot of work into creating the best guides for traveling with children to save you time and frustration. Learn from globetrotting parents with their insider knowledge on changing tables, breastfeeding, and high chairs. For those traveling with toddlers, we have information on parks and kids’ menus at restaurants that can accommodate even your pickiest eater. Each guide includes:
- Family-friendly accommodation suggestions
- Best things to see and do with kids
- Transportation advice (including car seat laws!)
- Tips and tricks specific to each city
- Airport maps that pinpoint family amenities in airports around the world
- Community vetted restaurants, parks, activities, and more
- Hyperlinks so you can easily get more information and make your bookings
