When planning a group trip there are six things to consider. Geographic location, budget, what to do, where to stay, when to go, and who is going to go with you.
Geographic location: Inspired by your ancestry? Maybe an excursion video? Maybe it was a friend or a Pinterest post? Whatever it is, the best way to plan a trip is to first figure out your destination.
Budget: Figure a budget that works for you and your time frame. Get a feel for travel expenses. Have your budget money read at least a month before the trip for the most cost efficient booking.
Map It Out: Even if you're a spontaneous fox, map out what makes the place unique before finding a place to stay unless you are planning a trip around a specific hotel. Look for the novelty. Is there a hot air balloon festival? Maybe a flamingo beach? What about a Taco Bell that serves alcohol?
Timing is Everything: This step is often forgotten when planning a trip. You may be looking at what times work for you and your work schedule, but you need to be checking flights, weather, and events. Do you have a passport? If not, you need to give yourself enough time to apply and get it back. If you skip this step it may rain on your parade!
Find Your Stay: Where will you unwind after your adventurous day? Search for something close to the activities you want to invest in. It could save your budget and your time. Will you be staying at an Airbnb, a host, or maybe at that classy five star resort you saw on Facebook.
Share it: Lastly, share your trip with other like-minded people! Who you take is just as important as where you go, so choose wisely! Put all your hard work together in one spot, we of course recommend using the WiGo Trips app, and get ready to share with your network who will surely admire all your hard work!
