This doesn’t just have to be a gals holiday, it can be applied to booking any other adventure but I came across these little tips and tricks whilst booking a holiday with my friends.
Budget – Are you all on the same wave length for budgets?
Location – where do you want to go that will cater for all the group?
Dates – when is everyone free? Do you want to go at peak times?
Airport – What airport is the easiest/cheapest to fly from?
Work out max budget PP, and go from there. If you book as a group (group booking) then it tends to be a lot cheaper PP.
people around, so may/June or later on in the year September or do you want to go when the party season is in full swing? If you do want to go in peak season, then you have to expect to pay a lot more money. In 2016 we did a girls holiday to Benidorm in early September, temperatures hit mid 30’s, party scene was still in full swing but not too much and the flight/accommodation was a lot cheaper, so for me off peak is perfect.
Now that all the nitty gritty details have been worked out, here comes the fun part…BOOKING!
TIP: When searching for flights, go incognito. Websites such
TIP: Be careful of a security deposit. So many times, I’ve been stood at a reception and they have asked me for a security deposit and me being oblivious. When booking, especially accommodation, read the small print.
- Airbnb is the best choice for me. If there is a lot of you, the cheaper it will be. You also get a kitchen, so if you’re on a budget. Winner winner.
- Hotels are great, but only when you find a good deal. I went on a all-inclusive holiday last year and loved it.
First Choice, Virgin Holidays, Thomas Cook and TUI are great for booking all inclusive, half board and self catering holidays.
TIP: Whenever booking flights/accommodation, if you book for the entire group it will always be cheap individually.
Now that you are all booked, all you need to do is learn some of the language to get you by (thank you, hello, goodbye are my go to phrases) and get the cocktail money ready.
