Are you and your friends thinking of heading off on a group getaway? With so many places to potentially explore, choosing where to go can be really difficult. Not to mention, it can be a headache to plan group trips too (good thing there’s WhenAvailable!). So, to help give you a little inspiration, here you’ll discover some great tips to help ensure you and your friends can have the ultimate group getaway together.
Choose somewhere you’ve never visited before
Ideally, you’ll want to head to a destination you’ve never been before. That way, you and your friends will be able to enjoy the added excitement of discovering new places and creating memories that will last a lifetime.
If you really want to up the excitement, get one or two people to plan the entire thing, without revealing where you’re actually going. Meet at the airport the night before and then reveal where you’ll be jetting off to.

Travel in style
Speaking of jetting off, if you truly want to enjoy the ultimate group getaway, why not travel in style? By splitting the cost between you, you may even find that hiring a private jet to take you to your destination is more affordable than you thought. It’s the perfect way to kick – off an unforgettable holiday experience together.
Don’t quite have the budget for private jet charter? Luxury car hire is another alternative to consider. Your travel experience will make all of the difference to your overall holiday. So, make sure you’re comfortable with booking luxury travel arrangements.

Check out Airbnb
Rather than staying at a hotel, it’s definitely worth looking into Airbnb properties. The great thing about Airbnb is that it has a lot of different, unique properties on offer. You could find renovated lofts, large country mansions and unique villas for example. It also tends to be cheaper than staying at a hotel, especially if the cost is split between the group.
So, if you and your friends truly want to enjoy the ultimate group getaway together, you’ll definitely want to follow the tips above. Heading somewhere you’ve never been, traveling in style and renting a unique Airbnb property will set you off to a great start. Don’t forget to put a basic itinerary in place too so that when you get there, you’ll have a good idea of where you want to go and what you want to experience together.
