You have just been given some great news. Your extended family wants to take a trip together. This will be a trip with your parents, your husband and children, and your siblings and their families. Who knows, some of you might bring along friends as well. This is going to be a large group of the people you love most, you are really looking forward to it. But how are you going to plan this?
- Let’s start looking at this today. First, please allow me to help you do this. We travel agents receive commissions when we book hotels, car rentals, cruises and things like that. Speaking for myself, I charge nothing over and above that.
- One of the first things I’ll want to do is to create a Facebook group where everyone involved will discuss what they want out of this trip. I will need to know about any special needs anyone in your group has. Is anyone on a special diet? Does anyone need something special in order to sleep? I’ll need to know those type of things up front please.
- But there does need to be just one person making the decisions. Sometimes grandparents decide to pay for the whole family. Obviously when they do that, they get to make the final call on everything.
