Going on holiday is fun, right? But no matter where you’re off to, there’s always an element of stress, particularly in these exceptional times. We want to know your tips for coping with the usual holiday hassles – from practising deep breathing to calm road rage on the motorway to keeping packing simple and light. Perhaps you have inventive ways of entertaining kids on the journey and once there – beyond iPads or I-spy!
If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.
Keep your tip to about 100 words
The best tip of the week, chosen by Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.
We’re sorry, but for legal reasons you must be a UK resident to enter this competition.
The competition closes on Tuesday 20 July at 9am BST
