Any child under the age of 24 months can fly for "Free". Airlines and travel agents use the industry word "LAPCHILD" to describe a baby or toddler flying seated in their parent's lap. Parents are still required to pay for any taxes associated with a "free" seat for their child. Some airlines may also charge a small fee which usually runs around 10% of the cost of an adult ticket.

At Vacationkids, Q&A blog posts are our favorites. This week, we received an email from Brandy asking us how Kids Clubs work for child care when you're on vacation.

Brandy wants to know -

I've never used a kids club before and have a few questions. How long are your children allowed to be there for, is there set hours? Do you have to pre book them in or just drop them off? Do you have to stay in the resort or can you leave? Please tell me all I'll need to know :)

Hi Brandy – Glad to help!
