Holidaying with friends – to do or not to do?

Often when friends are having a social get together, the idea of holidaying together will come up. It may not be long before you are all sat down with holiday brochures planning your trip away, but before you book you may want to discuss your plans in a bit more detail.
Holidaying with friends or family can be great fun. It means you have other people to talk to, if you have children you can offer to baby sit for each other so each couple has a chance to go out on their own and you may be able to find a cheaper holiday if there is more of you going. It is important to set some ground rules before jetting off to ensure that everyone has a nice time.
Firth thing to sort out is paying for the trip. If you are booking a villa for example then you will need to split the cost. If one family is bigger than the other then you may need to work out the price per person.
It can be hard spending all your time together for a week or two, so talk about doing activities with your own family or just your partner so everyone gets time apart. This can help avoid fall outs.
