Everyone loves to hang out with their friends but when it comes to picking your travel companions, it is much more complicated than just choosing the friends you want to hang out with for that day.

Travelling with friends can be very fun but can also be quite tiring, especially if it's your first time travelling with that friend. Differences in personalities, behaviours and habits all play a part in determining how enjoyable your trip will be. Those are however, inevitable and are things you cannot change.

But there are some things everyone can do and tips to follow before and during your trip so that everyone enjoys themselves! Read on to find out more!

#1 Consider everyone's wants and budgets

When planning the travel itinerary, make sure to sit everyone down to discuss how much each individual's budget for the trip is. Keep in mind that not everyone will have the money for extravagant hotels or expensive meals everyday.

If everyone had decided to go on this trip together, it is only right that as friends, everybody makes some sacrifices to accommodate to those who can't afford the luxuries. For example, staying in Airbnbs can be as good, if not even better than staying in hotels as it is affordable.

While you are on the topic of budget, get everyone to list down the places, activities and food they would like to go or try in that country. Take note of whether everyone is comfortable with the things suggested before adding them in the itinerary.

By taking everyone's opinion into consideration, the trip will be much more enjoyable!

#2 Plan some individual or smaller group activities

Not everything has to be a group activity!

If you really want to try something that your friends don't want to, it never hurts to bring it up and let them know that you don't mind doing it alone or with one or two other friends who are comfortable with the activity.

The entire group can always regroup after the activity is over and have dinner together before heading back to your accommodation.

It is also good to be able to take a break from each other for a breather as you will be spending 24 hours with each other everyday!

#3 Don't be late

We can't stress this enough!

Wake up on time and be ready by the agreed timing during the trip. If your friend can make an effort to wake up and get ready by the stipulated timing, then so can you and vice versa.

Nothing ruins a trip more than someone being late and affecting the schedule, especially when the activities planned can only be done during a timeframe.

Set multiple alarms or be your friend's alarm clock if need be. By putting in more effort, everyone can avoid conflicts and enjoy the trip together!

#4 Resolve conflicts ASAP

Even without travelling with your friend, there are surely times when you were annoyed with your friend. This happens because of personality differences but you guys are still friends for a reason!

During a trip, conflicts are almost unavoidable as it can be heightened when everyone is stressed out. Our advice is to resolve those conflicts ASAP and not let it simmer for too long because that will just increase tension.

In fact, you guys made the choice to come on this trip together because you enjoy each other's company so, talk it out as nothing can't be resolved over a nice cup of coffee and good food! ?

#5 Be there physically and mentally

Being able to travel with your friends is a blessing!

Try to limit your social media usage and the time you spend on your phone. We understand that you want to capture as many memories as possible but it is always nice to put your phone away and just truly savour the time spent with your friends! ?‍♂️

We hope these tips will be able to make your trip with your friends a breeze! Share this post with a friend you will be travelling with! ?
