At what age do you encourage your children to travel on their own?

Jump to last reply

I'm only looking for opinions, not advice.

I'm interested because I posted a question on the US board about my 18 year old daughter and her friends going on a short trip.

I'm assuming because this IS a travel board, the parents here would most likely encourage their kids to start young, but I'm still interested.

For instance, some examples:

what age can they fly alone?

what age can they go with their friends on a short car trip?

what age can they take an "actual vacation" (like a cruise, Caribbean, Europe) with friends?

DH and I are pretty liberal. Our girls have had their own FF numbers since they were tots and learned how to book flights, select seats, get boarding passes, check in very early on.

How about you?
