Unaccompanied travelling

Parents may differ on whether children are old enough to travel without one of the parents.

Pendant la médiation, nous pouvons discuter :

  • l'expérience des enfants en matière de (longs) voyages
  • l'âge et les capacités des enfants
  • les opinions et les sentiments des deux parents concernant le voyage en solitaire
  • comment préparer les enfants
  • comment les enfants peuvent s'exercer avant de voyager seuls
  • comment les enfants peuvent rester en contact pendant le voyage
  • les alternatives et les avantages et inconvénients.

The agreements about unaccompanied traveling can become a part of the plan parental.

The airline itself sets conditions for unaccompanied traveling by minors. KLM, for example, states that in the case of children between aged 5 upto and including 14, you’re always required to book the Unaccompanied Minor service on top of the regular ticket. For minors who are 15, 16 or 17 years old this service is only optional.
