Top Tips For Organising an Amazing Group Trip
Embarking on a group trip can feel like a daunting prospect. After all, there are so many people to please, and so many different tastes to accommodate. The brilliant thing about it however, is that you’ll be able to enjoy the holiday of a lifetime and make memories that will last forever. Take a look at our top tips, and you’ll have everything you need to make it a reality.
Setup up a Whatsapp group to keep everyone in the loop
Keeping everyone in the loop is the name of the game when it comes to planning. By all means chat about it if a couple of you meet up for a coffee in the week, but make sure you pop the details in the Whatsapp group before you forget. That way everyone will be able to have their two cents about where and when you go, and everyone will be happy from the moment you set off.
Decide where you’re going so that everyone’s happy
Picking a location is the most difficult part of the entire planning process. Of course we want to see you here in sunny Sitges, but take the time to find somewhere everyone agrees on. If you push ahead with a location the quiet member of the group isn’t happy with, then it could cause all manner of headaches further down the line.
Have one person in charge of collecting the money
Making payments can be a little tricky when there’s half a dozen of you to coordinate. The best way to go about it is to nominate the most reliable member of the group as the person who will sort things out. That way you can trust that everyone will pay in time so you can go and enjoy your time in the sun.
If possible, get everyone on the same flight
Group holiday stories are peppered with dramatic tales of lost travellers taking 2 days to link up with the rest of the group. Play it safe, book everyone on the same flight, and chase that friend of yours who always leaves things to the very last minute.
Decide if you want to get a couple of hire cars
Sitges is a great location because your luxury villa will be a stone’s throw from town. If you want to go and explore further afield then there’s plenty of public transport, but sometimes it’s nice to have your own car for the week.
If there’s half a dozen of you then it may be worth hiring a couple of cars. That way you’ll have plenty of freedom and flexibility.
Pick some accommodation that has everything
If you want to be able to put your feet up and relax, then you need a luxury villa that has it all. Invest plenty of time in reading reviews, browsing photos, watching videos, and checking for all the features you want. One thing is for sure: you won’t regret a minute of it when you’re lying by the pool.
