Travelling with friends can be an exhilarating experience allowing you the opportunity to see new things together for the first time and make memories that you will be reminiscing about for years to come. That said, there is a particular art to travelling successfully with friends without stepping on toes and cramping each others style. Here's how to enjoy a motorhome holiday with friends and avoid becoming 'frenemies':
Plan the journey as a group
Planning a holiday with your friends is a great way to build anticipation and ensures that you're all on the same page. Get together in the planning stages and come up with a rough itinerary that takes into account everyone's interests and must-sees. Planning in advance is a great way to avoid conflict while you're out on the road. Allocate one group member as the leader to take down notes off each person and put together a draft of the itinerary. The planning process doesn't have to be a drag - get together over pizza and drinks and turn
it into a light-hearted social event where everyone contributes.
Travel with the right people
If you're having second-thoughts about your travel buddies before you jump in the motorhome, you may want to reconsider your companions. Travel with people that you know well so you will know their boundaries and they will know yours.
Don't feel pressured to do everything together
Before you travel, come to the understanding that you don't have to do absolutely everything together on the holiday. You may want to break up the group to do different activities or just to have some alone time. Having a break from your travel companions is a great
way to rejuvenate and appreciate the time you do have together during the trip.
Bring a tripod for your camera
Travelling together is a great opportunity for group photos! Avoid missing anyone out of the shot by bringing along a tripod. Smile!
Be easy to get along with
Avoid having too many cemented individual travel plans. If you can go with the flow it will make the trip that much more enjoyable
for everyone. Travelling in a camper gives you ultimate flexibility so try not to have your heart set on a set routine and itinerary. If
everyone has the ability to compromise the holiday will be smooth sailing.
Choose the best motorhome for group travel
It's a good idea to hire the largest motorhome when it comes to group travel to optimise personal space. Many campers come equipped with privacy curtains that allow you to segment the sleeping areas at night. Hire the 6 Berth Discovery for the ultimate group travel vehicle.
