As with most things, holidays are something best enjoyed with good company. After all, few people haven’t dreamt of packing up their things, taking their mates along and embarking on a holiday that will make history. Nonetheless, most of times group holidays seem to be a daunting prospect. Be it the fact that most people have to worry about day jobs and paying their rent, life seems to get in the way of the perfect group vacation more often than not. In case however, that you decide to go, another set of challenges might arise and in order to overcome these, you have to be prepared. Since we ‘re always about helping you with your holidays, we have gathered some of the best advice and suggestions of places to visit, in order to help you organise your perfect holiday without breaking your friends’ hearts, bones and of course the bank.
Book as a group
Although you don’t necessarily have to stay in one for the whole duration of your holiday. Booking as a group usually entails bigger discounts and consequently means more money to spend on drinks, tours, activities and even some tacky t-shirts and souvenirs to take back home after a sunny holiday to Cancun for example. Purple Travel loves people who travel in groups and we always strive to make your booking special regardless of it being for 2 or 22 people travelling together. All the more of a reason to convince your mates to join you.
Some destinations are safer than others as usual, but staying safe while on a holiday also depends on the people you go with. Group holidays usually mean that not all people will be after the same kind of entertainment, so you can always find someone willing to go out with you and stay sober enough to keep you out of harm’s way. This of course, means that you have to do your part when others are concerned as well but as the three musketeers used to say, it’s all for one and one for all!
Sharing travel experience
That little corner shop with amazing deals in traditional bags and the cosy little local restaurant with amazing food are always waiting, but usually they tend to hide way better than you may think. Going in a group with some people who have already visited helps, as they will certainly help point you towards the right direction. Moreover, some things like places to visit and relevant expenses will come in handy from someone you know whenever your 4G signal runs out and you can’t Google your question.
You always have someone to explore with
And go to places you wouldn’t think you’d visit. Yes of course a trip to Chernobyl might sound tempting, but in the meantime, walking around a highly radioactive and abandoned city doesn’t sound ideal to everyone. That’s what friends are for because any time you decide to do something the others don’t approve of there will certainly be another to go with your idea -and maybe convince the others too.
