What's better than going on an overseas trip by yourself? Exploring the world with a group, of course!
Whether you're a group of professionals off on a business trip, friends wanting to celebrate a birthday or a school group studying history, travelling as a collective can bring a number of benefits. This said, the more people that are involved, the more delicate the planning and organisation needs to be.
If you're got an idea of where to go, here are three helpful tips to make your group trip as stress-free and cost-effective as possible!
1) Work out who will lead the group
As the common saying goes "too many cooks spoil the broth". Although everyone might be excited about the upcoming trip, it's a lot easier for one person to take the lead to avoid confusion.
Those in charge can then ensure that all of the small details are covered when working with a travel agent. This can include passports, visas, accommodation, transfers and flights. This said, if there are any decisions that the whole group needs to be across, this individual can liaise with everyone in a productive and stress-free manner.
2) Establish the budget
It doesn't matter if you're a group of friends wanting to go to Bali or a school trip off to Ancient Greece, there will be limitations to how much you want to and can spend on travel.
This means it's important to establish the budget at the beginning of the planning to avoid any overspending or surprises down the line. In some cases, your budget could even determine where you can go and what flights you could take.
3) Collaborate with a travel agent
One of the best ways to get group travel right is to work with a travel agent. At Active Travel, we pride ourselves in tailoring trips specifically for different groups. Our team makes sure that everything is covered during the planning phrase – identifying any special deals along the way.
