Planning A Group Trip – Tip #1
Work On It Together
First, you can all work on it together. To do this, you can meet up somewhere together and talk about what you want to do, how you want to travel, what accommodation you want to stay in and so on. You’ve got to make sure that you are aware of the budget overall, so if you’re not going with your family, or you’re traveling with another family, you have got to know what kind of budget they are working with.
The only problem with doing this is that there’s a good chance members of the group will speak over each other, and there’s a greater chance of someone getting left out. – which could result with some of the group not contributing their ideas as they feel like nobody is listening. To prevent this, go around the table and allow everyone a chance to speak without interruption of what they want to get out of the planned trip.

Nominate A Group Leader
The greatest thing about going away as a group is safety in numbers. If you aren’t sure of the area you are going to then make sure you do your research. If you are going out, all together, then it will help to nominate a group leader to make the key decisions. If you are going out drinking then the group leader will be the sober one making sure nobody gets into any trouble – a little like a designated driver but most likely a patient pedestrian!
