Going on holiday with your friends is always either the best time of your life or a complete and utter disaster. There is rarely a nice in between, as sometimes people fight over what they want to do or where they want to go. If you’re planning a group holiday and trying to think of some fail-safe activities to do to keep everybody in the group happy, this list may just have some ideas that you’re interested in.
Make a bucket list
Each person in the group could come up with an idea or activity that they want to do whilst on the holiday. This will give you a set plan for what to do as well as letting every person in the group pick one thing they would like to do. This way things stay fun whilst keeping everybody happy.
Create an activity bingo sheet
Like the first idea, if everyone creates their own bingo sheet filled with different events or incidents, for example, whether someone will fall over or spend too much money. Then as the holiday goes on you can check off the things that do happen and if anyone correctly predicts a line, they can win a prize.
Get matching outfits
This idea may be a bit embarrassing but it’s always a laugh to match with your friends. You could try wearing matching t-shirts or you could buy some of these personalized wristbands. This idea is perfect if one of you has a bad habit of wandering off on your own, as if this happens at least you’re all easily identified.
Whilst it can be very easy and fun to stay within the resort you’ve booked, especially if it is all-inclusive, you never know what kind of sites and opportunities you and your friends are missing out on. Rent a car and go out for drives, find quiet beaches or other hidden treasures, or book a tour and learn more about the area. Group holidays don’t have to completely revolve around alcohol!
Get a taste of new cultures
Any country you travel to is likely to have their own unique culture, you and your friends should try to push yourself to try new foods that you wouldn’t otherwise have the chance to try. If that means you have to dare your friends to try snails in France, it’ll definitely be a fun experience.
