Planning a multi generational trip #2

630x355 (11)

The company we’ve had left between Saturday night and yesterday morning. I had a great time. But even with working some like I did,, I’m ready to get back to a more normal schedule. I have some different things I’m thinking about trying.

Anyway, let’s get down to business.

Planning a bigger family vacation where your parents and all your siblings and their families can get together can be both a lot of fun and a lot of work. Hopefully you’ll plan it so that you can get most of the work out of the way before your actual trip, and just enjoy your trip and your family during the time away.. You should start planning as as you can. And you’ll want to know everything you can up front. Do some people suffer from food allergies? Does someone need special sleeping arrangements? Will someone be very unhappy if there is no fitness center or night club? These are the type of things you will want to find out and then get that information to your travel agent as soon as possible.

You may want to consider setting up a Facebook event for this trip. Events are easy to set up and makes communication easy. You’ll want to include your travel agent in this event so that she can see everything people are saying.

Your travel agent will be able to find out if you will be able to get group discounts. Usually on cruises if if you get at at least eight rooms, you will get a discount. Resorts vary when it comes to what they consider a group.

One of the more stressful parts of planning a vacation like this is getting the money from each family. Your travel agent will be able to help you with that. Booking things like hotels and car rentals is how she makes money, and of course booking a group like yours is going to bring some good money her way. She will be able to take credit cards and everything. Please let me know if you are in something like that.
