“There is an unspoken bond you create with the friends you travel with.”
– Kristen Sarah
Getting away from your routine everyday life and going to someplace new where you can indulge in some fun activities and pamper yourself is always a great idea! Doesn’t it sound heavenly? And how about you plan and do all these things with your besties? Yes, we can see you getting excited after reading the last line. It is always thrilling to just think about taking an all-girls trip, let alone the fun you get to have, and trust us it can do you a world of good.
So what are you waiting for? Go ahead, choose the destination, book your tickets, and apply for leaves at the workplace. And then be ready to conquer the world in style!!
But there is one important thing that you can’t afford to not discuss with your friends. Just like any other trip, an all-girls trip comes with its own share of merits and demerits. So all you got to do is plan well in advance because without that your dream getaway can turn a wee bit messy.
So here we are with some valuable tips that can help you have the best time of your life on your next all girls trip.
Decide the Budget
Money matters!! So the foremost thing to consider while planning any group trip is the budget. There may be some in the group who can splurge on everything they set their eyes on and then there may be others who have to think hard before spending their sweet money. So decide the budget that suits everyone.
P.S. – If planning an international trip, your credit or debit cards may not function in other countries, so make sure you carry enough currency.
Group Size Matters
On a trip, it matters if you are traveling in a big group or a small one. A size of 4 to 6 allows for less coordination and makes the trip quite fluid. Always try to keep the count in even numbers. For instance- in a group of three, if two get along really well, then the third one may feel like the odd one out. And it can disturb the whole group dynamics.
Make It Collaborative
No one in the group must feel that the decisions are being made for them and they are being sidelined or they are the only ones working hard to organize the trip. From planning down travel dates, researching the destination and deciding where to stay, all the people in the group should be the part of the discussion and must have a say in it.
Book Rooms in Advance
Whether you are planning to stay in a hotel, beach house or Airbnb with your buddies, it is important to book your accommodation in advance. Because in the worst nightmare scenario, you may end up without a room to stay in a new city or country in the middle of the night. And that for sure, you would never want to happen.
No Extra Luggage
Carrying that extra party dress when you have already packed like 4 will never do any good to you. Try to keep your luggage light, so that you don’t face any issue while commuting. You can try and make a group packing list for the items that you can share with your friends. After all, sharing is caring!!
Create a Whatsapp Group
While on a trip, it is quite possible that some members of the group may end up going in a different direction. A designated Whatsapp group will help keep track of everyone and in case of emergency, you can easily spot them through their location. For an all-girls trip, it is the best measure from the safety point of view as well. And more than that, the best way to share Instagram-worthy clicks with your besties!!
Co-ordination is the Key
When traveling in a group, coordination is crucial and everyone must be on the same page. You can also prepare an itinerary to plan all the activities you will be doing and the places you will be visiting on each day of your trip. So that you don’t end up asking each other “So what’s next?” and wasting your time.
We hope the tips mentioned above make your trip rocking and you have the time of your life with your lovely ladies.
Have a great trip ahead. BON VOYAGE!!
