With spring break and summer slowly approaching, it’s hard not to think about vacation. Oh yes, vacation . . . who doesn’t love a well-deserved break from their busy lives. Sometimes planning a weekend getaway can be stressful. Where do you want to go? What will you pack? How much do you want to spend? Where will you eat? These are all questions you must consider. But planning can be easy and we’ve got you covered! Before setting on your next adventure, here are our easy tips to plan the perfect getaway trip with friends.
Prep what to pack
We’ve all been there. You get to the check-in counter at the airport and realize your bag is over the weight limit, setting you on a mad scramble to fit three pairs of shoes in your carry-on. Luckily you can skip the airport panic by simply planning ahead of time.
Have your travel itinerary open while packing your luggage so you can prepare specific outfits for each activity. It saves room in your bag and time during your trip that would normally be spent figuring out what to wear. Trust us, your baggage and your #OOTD will thank you for this.
Talk to your besties and set a budget
When it comes to budget, it’s best to talk in person to avoid any confusion or miscommunication. Meet face-to-face with your besties and ask how much you want to spend for the room, food, and transportation. Set up expectations on what the trip will entail so there are no financial surprises down the line. This will help prevent any confusion about what an excursion might cost you all on the trip.
Roll with it
You’re bound to find souvenirs to bring home from your weekend getaway, so leave some extra room in your luggage. Our go-to packing trick is the rolling technique, which means folding your garments into tight rolls, rather than flat squares. This allows for more compact packing, so you can make room for the important things — like a bottle of wine!
Research, research, research
Yelp is your best friend! When you’re traveling to a new city that you or your friends haven’t been to, it’s best to research places to go and things to eat before going. Plan an itinerary and make reservations when possible so things go as smoothly as possible. Nothing is worse than showing up to a restaurant and they can’t sit you due to crowds. Look around, plan where you want to stay, eat, and go. This will ensure a fun and eventful trip.
