We wait all year to go on holiday, and some of the best holidays are the ones in large groups, where you get to have fun with all of your loved ones and just relax for a week, without having to worry about anything. But as enjoyable as taking holidays in large groups is, it can also be quite difficult to organise a holiday for so many people. What destination do you choose? What time of year? What kind of activities will appeal to a large group of people? Let's think about that - here are the best ways to holiday in large groups!
1. Going On A Beach Holiday
You can't go wrong with going to the beach - as long as the entire group loves sunshine, of course. The great thing about beach holidays is that there's something for everyone. You can just spend time suntanning, if that's your thing, the active crowd can swim or participate in watersports, and there's always a hot, new club around for those who are interested in the nightlife. Plus, the weather is always lovely and extremely relaxing, so where's the downside? And it doesn't matter how many of you there are when going to the beach - there's always room for everyone!
If you're going abroad, just make sure to book tickets and hotels ahead of time in order to get the best deals. Money Saving Expert has great advice on how to get cheap tickets.
2. Go Skiing
Organising a holiday around a specific activity, especially a sport, is always a good idea, because there's a focus to the trip and everyone is in agreement and involved. So, if you decide to take a skiing trip, that keeps everyone entertained, you can always spend time together as a group, or you can each go do your own thing if you'd rather go snowboarding instead, or just chill out with a hot choco while everyone else is hitting the slopes. And there are always the evenings for fun and games together or a cosy meal in to catch up as a group. Perfect!
3. Go Abroad For New Year's Eve
Like activities, events are also excellent excuses for a trip, and since New Year's Eve is always a party, does it really matter where it takes place? Choosing to take a group holiday for New Year's can be one of the easiest holidays to set up, because the time is fixed, the location matters less, and everyone is in agreement on what the activity is: the New Year's party! Generally, this will involve food, drink, and dancing, and in a group setting, it's worth renting out a cabin because it works out cheap for everyone. Make sure to save money ahead of time or get a holiday loan; Money Supermarket shows you how.
4. Spend Christmas In A Cabin In The Mountains
Christmas is another great event to go use to go away, especially as a family. Who doesn't want a beautiful, white Christmas with all of their loved ones? This one is especially good if you're a family with children, because the kids' activity is built-in: playing out in the snow!
5. Go To A Festival/Show
A young group always finds something to do to get into some trouble, but take the guesswork out of it and organise a group holiday/outing with a festival as the destination! This is a good idea because the structure is already set and there is not much to actually organise, other than purchasing tickets and figuring out accommodation. In fact, it can be a fairly cheap holiday, all things considered, especially if you choose to spend the night together in tents, and drive together to the location in order to split the gas money.
6. Visit Disneyland
Another one that's excellent for kids and adults alike, going to Disneyland is always a good time! The best part about it is that it's a great idea and destination for any occasion, and again, the activities are already built-in for you. Everyone knows what happens at Disneyland and what they're travelling for, so there is less room for complaints or mismatched expectations. All there is left to do is buy Mickey Mouse ears and have loads of fun. Enjoy the fireworks!
In conclusion, there are tonnes of ways to have a successful group holiday. If you're going to get a loan, just remember to keep an eye on your credit score (get a credit report at Equifax!) If you found this useful, you might also be interested in The Holiday Packing Checklist Everyone Should Have.
