Top Tips for Booking Group Holidays
Thinking of heading off on a group holiday this year? It can be both exciting and stressful trying to organise a group getaway; particularly if you’re travelling with a large number of people. However, there are also lots of benefits that come from travelling in groups, including great booking discounts.
Before you go ahead and book the perfect group holiday, here you’ll discover some great tips to help you get the most out of the experience.
Figure out your budget
One of the most challenging parts of booking a group holiday is planning your budget. As everyone going will likely have a completely different level of income, it can be tough figuring out how to split the cost fairly.
There are quite a lot of ways you can make the holiday more affordable too. Booking in advance is one of the best ways to not only save money but make the holiday much easier to organise. You can also take advantage of group holiday deals, as well as a range of standard holiday deals available at the time of booking.
Choosing the right destination
Once you’ve figured out what your budget is, it’s time to narrow down the destination. Everyone is likely to have a different idea as to where they want to go. So, if you can’t decide, why not head to a destination nobody has thought of visiting? Whether you want to head off on a long-haul or short-haul trip, you’ll find a wide range of destinations you can travel to.
When trying to choose the perfect group holiday destination, you need to take into account the range of things to do there. It’s likely everyone in the group will have a different idea of what makes the perfect getaway. For some, it will be a lively nightlife scene, while for others it will be a relaxing beach getaway. So, it’s important to make sure the destination you do choose has something to suit everyone in the group. Why not check out our range of package deal holidays 2019 to get a little inspiration?
Opt for an apartment
These days, you have a wide range of options when it comes to booking group accommodation. While hotels may be more convenient, they’re may not be as suitable for group bookings as an apartment. This is especially true if you’re setting off on group family holidays abroad. Our collection of family holidays has a great choice of apartments and complexes for you to consider.
With an apartment, you’ll usually have much more space available and you’ll be able to enjoy a home-from-home experience.
Book your own insurance
One thing you will need when you’re heading off on a group holiday, is travel insurance. The more people heading on the holiday, the more chance there is something may go wrong. So, the right level of travel insurance can really help to ease your mind.
However, it is recommended each member takes out their own travel insurance policy. TUI has a great travel insurance policy you’ll want to consider.
Split up tasks and ensure everyone is in the loop
When it comes to organising the group getaway, it’s a good idea to split up the tasks. Give each person one job that they are solely responsible for. One person could be in charge of flights, while another is in charge of coming up with an itinerary to suit everyone. You’ll also want to appoint one person as the leader, who will be the person to go to if there are any issues with parts of the booking.
Making sure everyone is in the loop and giving each person one job is going to make booking the group holiday much easier.
There’s a lot to think about when booking group holidays abroad. However, if you follow the tips above, you should find it that little bit easier. Don’t forget to take a look at our package holidays for inspiration on where to go.
