Going on holiday doesn’t mean that you have to take a break from the whole world. In fact, traveling with friends can be more fun because you can explore a new country together and, by sharing the cost, you can afford to add a bit of luxury to your holiday that you wouldn’t be able to afford if you were traveling alone. Here are a few ways you can have a luxurious holiday with your friends.
Stay At A Villa
Resort hotels sound great until you get there and you have to fight for a spot by the pool, or you miss breakfast because you wanted to sleep in. At a villa, you have your own private pool, you can get up and make your own breakfast whenever you want, and most villas are built within walking distance. This may have been too good to be true when it was just you paying for it, but with a group, you can split the cost to suit everyone’s budget.
Travel In Style
The cost of a taxi goes down significantly when there are four of you footing the bill. Renting a car is no longer out of your budget if you all pitch in and take turns driving. Hiring motorcycles for a day to see the city in style doesn’t sound as outrageous if you pair up and split the cost. You could even look into private jet rental and see how much that would cost if you were in a group.
Safety In Numbers
When traveling somewhere unfamiliar, it makes sense to err on the side of caution, particularly when going out at night. Unfortunately, this isn’t easy to do if you’re traveling alone and you haven’t made any new friends yet. But if you go on a group holiday then you’re never going anywhere by yourself. Even if you have different opinions on what you should do that day, you can pair off and do something by yourselves before meeting up at a designated area. Ultimately, you will see more of the city if you’re not afraid to go someone by yourself.
Someone To Take Group Photographs
Selfies are good, but they can only capture so much of the amazing monument behind you. When you travel with your friends you can all take turns standing behind the camera while everyone else poses in front of a landscape or famous building. The fun of your night out is better captured when someone else takes a picture of how amazing you look. Most importantly, silly faces always look better when someone else is making an equally silly face.
Sampling More Food
There is only so much local cuisine you can order at a restaurant by yourself without looking like a greedy pig. However, if you all make a pact to ask for different meals whenever you eat out, then you can all have a taste of each other’s food to get a better sense of what specialties this new city has to offer.
