Fifty-six percent of all female travelers joined an all-girl getaway last year, according to a recent survey. The rising girls' getaway trend can be attributed to an increase in women's salaries. Women now tend have more time to spare and enjoy more freedom than women from the previous generation. While an overseas trip is appealing to many, the fastest and most affordable getaway only requires them to drive across states to visit wineries and taste the local dishes with their mother, sisters or friends. Going on an all-female road trip requires a lot of preparation to make it more fun and enjoyable. If you and your friends are planning an all-girls trip on the road, here are some useful tips.
List Down All Your Needs
Before you and your girlfriends pack up and drive off into the sunset, you need to make sure that you all know your intentions for the trip. Some of you may need to destress because of all the challenges from work. If that's the case, you could go on a relaxing trip to a spa resort somewhere near the mountains. If you all need to have a short break away from the kids, then you can go to a place where you can have fun, have a drink or two, and party all night. By discussing all the reasons for your trip, you will also know all the things that you need to pack and the type of car most suited to the trip: an SUV might be more suited to an adventure getaway, for example, while your friend's convertible might be the better fit for a city break.
Agree On A Workable Budget
Setting a budget per person is a good idea when going on a road trip with your girlfriends. This way, everyone will know how much you all need to pay during your getaway. You must compute all the expenses that you need to pay for the fuel, your accommodation, the activities that you will do with the group, the food that you will eat, and other extra expenses. It's also important to consider everyone's financial capacity so nobody has to spend more than they can afford.
Divide The Duties
You do not need to do all the planning when traveling with your girlfriends. Talk among yourselves, and assign a duty to each member of the group to get things done faster. One of you could take care of reserving the hotel, while another one could research the activities you can do at your destination. You can also divide the driving duties so that the designated drivers will have ample time to rest. By doing this, you will all have a contribution to your tour's planning stage.
After planning your girlfriend getaway, all that's left to do is to remind each other to have fun and enjoy your upcoming trip. Gathering your closest female pals for a short journey may not be an easy feat, but it will all be worth it once you start rolling.
