Group Holidays – Tips
Pick a Destination & Date
Pick 3 destinations. A local option, a fun getaway, and an all-out option. The date should be at least 6 weeks in advance and it is advisable to avoid any major holidays. If you pick an overseas destination you can expect fewer people to come. All the group holidays Ideas go to a vote and the most votes win or simply put them all in a hat for something random.
Where are you staying?
Depending on the place, it’s really a hostel/hotel/house argument here. In a house, you have everyone together and bonding happens more organically and it can be cheaper but the sleeping situation is harder and you have to clean up or live in mess. 15 people sharing a house gets pretty dirty quickly.
Hotels are the best option as they are centrally located so you are closer to the action. They normally have pools so you can meet girls and have a fun atmosphere. A hotel is kept clean and it also means you have a chance for that 5 min power nap and a clean shower to freshen up before another big night out.
A Hostel is your cheapest option and a lot of fun as you meet international travelers but not every hostel in Australia takes a big group so not a guarantee. Epic has access to every hostel in Australia though.
The guest list
Inevitably, the organizer will be over-confidently and assume everyone will come but this not the case so everyone to be realistic and aim for 10-15 people. Any more and you usually have to split up tables at meals and bars. Invite 20 people and expect around 10-15.
Group discounts are available if you plan ahead and a lot of companies offer ‘pay later’ options like Epic Holidays. Best to book the hotel first and then it locked in the group holidays early bird special.
Create a Facebook page or email list
Get some group banter happening and start coming up with fun ideas for the group holiday. Make sure you get everyone on the list and start a fun topic to get everyone involved.
It is best to book your activities in advance so there is an actual plan or what happens is that everyone argues and you just end of in the pub all day. Booking in paintball go-karting in the day is a great way for everyone to bond and also create lots banter for the night out. It is advisable to not overbook though so a rule of thumb is book 1 activity per day and a pub crawl/strip show max in a day. Book any activity past lunchtime as a night out with the boys is always heavier and later than you think.
