Read on to learn how to make your next time traveling with a large group a breeze!
Many hotels, ground transportation companies, attractions, and even airlines will offer a discount if you’re booking for a larger group, so as you plan the various aspects of your trip, inquire about any group discounts they may offer.
Have a schedule
Check with the other members in your group for how they anticipate the flow of each day — activities in the morning and relaxing evenings at your accommodations or leisurely days with late dinners and dancing the night away? No need to schedule everything down to the minute, but it’s a good idea to get a sense from the group of how they’d like to spend the trip and accommodate accordingly.
Set a budget
Before booking anything, make sure everyone in the group agrees on an estimated budget for lodging, food, activities, and any other shared expenses. The last thing you want spoiling a good time is being blindsided by an ultra-pricey bill at the end of the trip!
Allow for solo time
Make sure to allow for some unstructured solo exploration time so people can see or do things that might not interest the whole group. This also allows everyone to recharge in their own way.
Book a rental home
Depending on the size of your group and your needs, it may be worthwhile to rent a house or condo instead of booking several hotel rooms. You’ll have more privacy and amenities that are difficult to get at a hotel, such as a kitchen, laundry facilities, and even a private pool. Having extra space and amenities is vital when traveling with a large group.
Assign a leader
It’s important to have one designated person who is responsible for the organization of the trip and is able to delegate tasks to others as needed.
