Let us know your advice for encouraging kids to put down the tech on holiday for the chance to win a £50 Amazon voucher

Whether we like it or not, screens - be it a smartphone, television or tablet - are playing an increasingly significant role in our lives. And while they can undoubtedly be a force for good, setting the screens aside on holiday and enjoying time together as a family can be invaluable.

What you need to do

We'd like to hear how, as a family, you encourage an atmosphere living in the moment without the involvement of tech. Whether it's setting limits, swapping iPads for books, or imposing a complete digital blackout, we want to know.

The best tip will receive a £50 Amazon voucher, while the 'best of the rest' will also be published to the Family Traveller website.

Examples of tips might include the following:

  • How to limit screen time without provoking tantrums
  • The best destinations for a 'digital detox'
  • Great holiday activities that don't involve technology
  • Apps that help reduce screen time (e.g. AppDetox, BreakFree)
  • Captivating books to keep little minds occupied

The deadline for entries will be 19th February 2020, with the winner announced on 21st February 2020.
