Google has released an advisory on how to choose the best holiday destination to send your kids for a family holiday.
The company is urging parents to take into account the age, health and safety requirements, and whether the destination is safe to travel on and how the weather is going to affect the holiday.
The company warns parents to: “Think about the weather before you go.
Weather can change rapidly, especially when you travel to areas with high winds and heavy rains, especially in the north-west.”
It also advises parents to “consider what your children are wearing and if it is safe for them to wear.
Wear shoes, gloves and a hat if you are walking or riding a bike, and wear a safety belt if you drive.”
Google also warns that: “In extreme weather conditions, including hail, tornados, and heavy rainfall, children may be vulnerable to suffocation or drowning.”
