The genius baby idea to take the stress out of travelling
Picture the scene - you've got a baby and, mid tantrum/sleep deprivation/weaning diaster you swiftly announce to your other half "that's it! I've had enough... I'm booking us on the first BA flight to south of France."
For the uninitiated parent that might sound like a fun and frivolous idea - but for those of us who have attempted a holiday with a baby, we know that despite the good intentions, a holiday is likely to breed even more stress. Why? Because of ALL THE GEAR. As in the car seat you need to hoist to the airport, the airport friendly buggy you need to buy, the baby play mat, the uv sun protection tent, the travel cot, the.....you get it right? The list is endless.
So THANK YOU GOD for airtots. I stumbled across this frankly incredibly company whilst desperately searching for "baby stuff to hire on holiday." Believe it or not, the service doesn't exist. Or at least it didn't until airtots came along. Conjured up by two very charming Edinburgh and Bristol uni educated friends, the idea behind the company is that you can hire everything baby related that you might need for your holiday.
Within seconds of booking our trip to Ibiza I had emailed airtots and was thrilled when they were able to supply me with a plethora of items I didn't yet possess (and hadn't quite tempted the hubby to buy - yet .) They had a lightweight travel cot (complete with mattress and sheets), a uv protection babymoov playtent (oh my Goodness- the hours I left rupert playing happily in it whilst I attempted to tan) and the GENIUS baby zen yoyo (a lightweight buggy that can be taken as HAND luggage on the plane.)
There are numerous ways airtots can help you on your holiday. Either you book through their website, stating what items you want to hire and then then deliver them to your door (provided you are London based) complete with instructions on how to use everything. The other option is you can use their flight ready service which means they deliver the items to the airport you are flying from and you just pick them up from there.
The service is also great for families who live abroad and are travelling to London don't want to bring the items half way round the world with them. They can just order what they need on the website and then Airtots will make sure they are at their accommodation in London when they arrive.
Essentially it's a way of enabling parents in London to hire the best travel gear for kids when they go on holiday without having to buy it and then not use it for the rest of the year!
The great thing about airtots is that they really do have products to rent that will make your holiday as stress free as possible. From car seats to baby weaning gear every possible situation is covered.
