How to plan a holiday with friends, and make compensation claims if something goes wrong
Planning a holiday with friends can seem much more simple than planning a family holiday. If children are not coming along then you don’t have to consider them in your planning, and safety is less of an issue. Talk to us if you’re thinking about claiming compensation in Basingstoke and Deane.
However, going away with a group of friends can bring up a whole new set of issues which could easily ruin your holiday, and if you have spent good money setting up and booking the holiday then this is the last thing you want.
If you have decided to go away with a group of friends, following this advice can help you to have a stress and argument free adventure.
Also in the unfortunate event of an accident caused to yourself or someone that you are with, when neither your fault or theirs, there is some advice on how to claim compensation further on.
- Think about the group carefully. Just because you like everyone you have invited, doesn’t mean that they will all like each other. Be very choosy when it comes to picking the group that you want to travel with. A couple may not enjoy time away with a group of single girls, whilst your girlfriend may not fit in well with your friends from school.
- Plan a holiday which suits everyone’s personalities. Choose a holiday which has something for everyone. So if you have a group of party animals a clubbing beach holiday would be perfect, whilst if you are travelling with people who like to explore you could choose a city to look around.
- Don’t force an itinerary on everyone. Just because you have all traveled together doesn’t mean that the group needs to stay together all day every day. Let people do their own thing as much as they want to, and just gather together in the mornings to decide who is going where.
- Have down time. Don’t try to make the holiday one long party or you will all burn out by the third day. Plan some quiet activities or even just a day on the beach so everyone can relax.
