Netflix Packing Essentials for Family

Netflix Packing Essentials for Tweens


Holidays are also time for travel. While meeting family and friends probably after very long is a wonderful prospect, getting there is hard. And being trapped in the car on a family road trip can feel like being in Litchfield.

Sounds familiar?

I just love this cute and relatable parody from the infamous melody of the Orange is the New Black theme song. It will have you humming along for the whole ride, making the journey a bit bearable in the packed car.


So why should you include Netflix on your list of must-have travel essentials?


Between delayed flights, lost luggage, public tantrums and that one thing you forgot to pack, travelling with your family can get complicated, fast.  In fact, 1 in 5 Canadian parents say one of their main concerns when travelling is keeping their kids entertained. With the holidays just around the corner, parents can look to offline viewing on Netflix to keep everything, and everyone, under control while on the go. From the tried-and-true shows you can rely on like Beat Bugs and Luna Petunia to calm any meltdown, to discovering new show obsessions like Stretch Armstrong & The Flex Fighters, Netflix downloads are a must-have travel essential for parents and their kids. So when it’s time to go on a trip together, one thing is for sure: when Netflix at home becomes Netflix on the go, everyone stays content, engaged and, most importantly, NOT bored.

All set! There is something for everyone.

And it’s not just Netflix originals, check out the Available for Download’ menu on the Netflix app on your mobile or tablet device and browse all of the titles available to take with you whenever and wherever you want.

Now, fear not next time you travel.  Keep that toolbox full with downloadable movies and shows for you, your kids, and anyone else you’d share your phone or tablet with.

Good luck out there and have a safe trip!

New on Netflix.

Just in time for the holidays, fill your plate (and queue) with the latest Netflix Family releases like Spirit Riding Free (my kids’ favorite!), Dinotrux Supercharged, Glitter Force…and the list goes on.

    We usually have the basic Netflix plan but when we know we are going to be traveling, we always upgrade to the 4 screens plan, which is so worth it – and a must! We have yet to try the download feature though but I reckon it would be so handy, being able to watch whatever show we want anywhere.

      Exactly! And considering the travel time and how long you will be needing to occupy yourself, it is a great option! Upgrading to 4 screen when you need it is a wonderful idea lol. I am stealing that, Thanks Jenn 🙂

    Oh I wish I would’ve known about this sooner! I just travelled last week & would have LOVED to have had Netflix shows downloaded to watch! Would’ve make the plane ride go so fast!

    I watch Netflix every day. There is so many things to watch. I could sit on my couch all day long and not be bored. Tons of great shows to watch.
