  • Plan The Trip

    First and foremost, talk to your friends regarding the trip. If your friends are in other cities or countries, make sure you have a conference call and go over all the ideas and expectations. And if you have initiated the plan, don't be a leader, instead, be a manager. Because being a control freak may lead to resentment and disappointment.

  • Be On The Same Page

    Every individual has a different definition of 'fun.' Some want to chill or sit on the beach for days, while some would love to party like there's no tomorrow. Though these are extreme conditions, nevertheless, these situations can cause conflict. Make sure you and your friends have similar plans, so you recognize strengths and weaknesses and decide who should tackle what.

  • Agree On A Budget

    If there is one thing that can bring tension and stress in friendship, it is money. It is better to be open about your expectations and expenditures for the vacation. If you don't have a budget talk, it may ruin the trip. The whole budget talk is about being open, honest, and comfortable with the total cost.

    Best friends may understand and step in to help each other. But it is recommended to avoid after payments and be on terms with how you will split the bills of meals, flights, hotels, gas, and rental cars. If everyone agrees upon the budget, the vacation is pretty much sorted.

  • Take Turns

    If you are driving to the place, take turns and if you are on a flight, switch seats. Common courtesy can go far. Don't neglect the transportation stress. It can be challenging for a few. Pay heed to the one who has travel sickness and try helping them out. You don't want your friend cranky upon arrival because they had to drive for hours!

  • Don't Be Too Uptight

    When on vacation with your friends, their always a friend who has too much of an opinion. And when ideas clash, the trip can go downhill. You can't blame them for their views, nor can you ignore them, but the one thing you can do is control yourself during such moments. Let loose, enjoy as much as possible, don't be too rigid and uptight.

  • Don't Be Too Casual Either

    Just like a person who has got too many opinions, you would also find someone who has no idea about anything whatsoever. It is good to have such cool friends. However, sometimes, others may feel like they have to make all the decisions for them, and it might eventually create misunderstanding.

  • Have Some Solo Time

    Sometimes it may get frustrating to be with your friends 24/7. Too much togetherness can put a strain on your trip. It doesn't mean that your friends are annoying. It is just a matter of giving them enough space and expecting the same. And the best way to travel with friends harmoniously is to part company for a while.

  • Go With The flow

    Patience and flexibility are the keywords. When travelling with friends, it is essential to understand each other's point of view. Sometimes it may not be possible to do everything as planned. Whatever the scenario always remain calm and make peace with it.

  • Limit Phone Time

    The whole point of vacation with your friends is to spend time with them. If you are on your phone instead of enjoying time with your friends, then many would think there is something wrong with your values.

  • Be open-minded

    Travelling with friends can be liberating. It can force you outside your comfort zone and make you compromise when needed. Find that careful balance of not being too laid-back or too opinionated.

There is a common expression "Having friends is like having your little corner of the world to escape to." As much as that is true, the relationship can get challenging too. With many friends, comes many opinions and viewpoints. Trips with friends can either build or scar your friendship.

However, be it with your best friend or a new friend at work, it is always good to spend some gala time with them, at least once every year. So, if a vacation is on your mind, follow these tips to ensure you have an incredible time with your friends.
