You spent extraordinary moments with your friends that the idea of a little trip with friends seems rather appealing to you. How to make your next holiday with friends a memorable one?
Divide the budget fairly
Among friends, we are not down to the penny, that’s for sure, but money can often become a source of quarrels. A travel budget is manageable. It is, therefore, essential to discuss this subject together before the big start, even if it means sharing some of the significant expenses you will have to bear (housing, car rental, shopping, etc.). If some people have less money than others, adapt and plan the type of accommodation, activities, and transportation you can book or use. As they say, good accounts make good friends!
Here, it would almost be a rule of thumb when traveling with friends! Whether you know each other from an early age or not, you may be a stranger to all of everyone’s habits and rhythms. That’s why we’re going to have to make some concessions. It is necessary so that the trip goes as smoothly as possible and you can bring back as many good memories as possible.

Choose your travel companions
Before leaving with your friends, even the closest ones, it is crucial to get to know them first as travelers. We know you love your friends, but your vision of travel, the activities you prefer, up to the way you like (or not) tidy up your Airbnb, can quickly become a source of conflict! It is therefore wise to leave with those who are more or less like you. Otherwise, the journey may be long.
Agree on the style of travel
Choose together the destination and itinerary for your next holiday! There is no way that one person can take care of everything because a group trip is prepared! That will be an opportunity to get together for a good meal and talk about all this. Some will probably prefer to sunbathe while others will want to hike in the mountains. It’s up to you to organize yourself to please everyone.
Take time for yourself
When you leave with your friends, you will necessarily spend a lot of time together between visits, activities, evenings. It is, therefore, essential to keep a little time for yourself. A few minutes before going to bed, getting up a little earlier in the morning, or even organizing a small solo excursion, all means are excellent to refocus a little once in a while. And if you are sometimes in your bubble, also remember to respect your friends’ bubble.
