We are going to Majorca in June and are getting the coach transfer from the airport to resort. It has just occurred to me - what happens with the kids on the coach, are there seat belts or kids seats or is it just like sitting on a bus at home and nothing? Sorry if this is a bit dense, we haven't been on a family package holiday before!

No seatbelts from what I recall. I hate coach transfers.

Balls. So do I SW and this is going to freak me out now.

We're going to Majorca on Thursday and think we're about an hour transfer time, hadn't really thought about it, eek

It is an hour for us too DD (to sa coma) and let's face it the chances of anything happening are slim - sorry if I freaked you out x
I must be a rubbish parent cos the 3 times we've went know a coach transfer its never even crossed mind. Although the last time we had a coach transfer was 6yrs ago.

I'm sure the transfer in Cyprus had belts.

You didn't freak me out AlsiT, just hasn't really considered it. SW, if you're rubbish then I must be too!

Woohoo great minds lady! I think we are tag teaming though, you mentioned on your thread last night you were coming back day after father's day? We are going out the day after my daughters 3rd birthday so on 18 June - we will need to compare notes on my return!!
It would have been nice for our paths to have crossed though!

Yeah we are 10th - 17th, pity as our girls are same age too (M will be three on 6th June). Will def compare notes after x

We went on a coach transfer in Majorca, it's a mini bus type thing with lap belts in the middle and 3 point belts at the sides. N was 2.5 and we didn't have a seat for him, in fact e slept on my lap most of the way. I think this year we will get a private taxi and see if they can provide seats.

I think it depends on whether they send a coach or a mini bus. We've booked a coach transfer 3 times and only once was it an actual coach. In majorca we got a minibus with us and perhaps 5 other couples so there were seat belts. No car seats though I suppose they could have been requested (we didn't have anyone young travelling)

Some so some dont. We had 2hrs in turkey with L on my lap sharing my lap belt.

I have only done 2package holidays, both with same company, but they were a coach with lap belts.
Can I be the car safety pedant again ? If you are having your child on your lap, please don,t put the seatbelt around both of you. They will then be crushed between you and the seatbelt in any incident and are likely to sustain more serious internal injuries than if not restrained.

We haven't had a coach transfer for a few years but we always had seat belts when we did
PS Sa Coma was lovely when i was last there (about 6 years ago - have been three times!) enjoy x
