Kids will on average get bored within 27 minutes on a long car journey.

This is according to research from TomTom, which surveyed families in nine countries including the UK, Spain and Italy.

Australian kids were found to have the least patience, lasting only 23 minutes before getting annoyed, while those in New Zealand made it to 34 minutes.

Some 74 per cent of parents make up games to keep their children occupied while on car journeys and 52 per cent use treats and rewards to keep them occupied.

Indeed, 41 per cent of mums believe going on a long-distance car journey is more stressful than being in the office, while 36 per cent end up arguing with their spouse.

"Whilst we can't stop children getting bored, we can make sure family journeys are as short as possible by getting you to your destination faster," says Corinne Vigreux, managing director of TomTom. ADNFCR-2576-ID-801435859-ADNFCR
