Traveling with girlfriends is one of my favorite things. If you’re planning your own girls trip, here are five things I’ve learned that can help you plan a lovely vacation with your crew.

Set ground rules. The rules should reflect your friend group, but here are three of ours:

Vote on key parts of trip like location, dates and accommodations. The majority wins, but it is equally important to understand why your friends are voting a certain way. For instance, if a friend has a problem with stairs and you’re pitching a three-story home, is that really fair to your friend? Is there a way to compromise so that the trip is fun for everyone?

Choose comfortable accommodations. I can’t stress this enough. Pick accommodations where everyone gets good rest, can access luggage, and can get ready in a timely manner.

If you’re doing roommates, pair wisely. Consider personalities, if someone is a night owl, etc.

Create a spreadsheet for possible activities and allow everyone to contribute ideas. This gives your group one place to store ideas. Discuss ideas a few weeks before the trip and purchase necessary tickets. Google sheets is a free way to do this.
