Getting into a car with your girlfriends to have uninterrupted relaxation and fun for a weekend or week is one of the most satisfying feelings out there for ladies.

A memorable vacation is spent doing activities that are outside your normal daily life. As a result, a successful trip needs proper planning and decision making.

Use the following tips to have an easy time when planning for your girls' trip.


A budget is one of the most important things because it determines the kind of trip you have, not only in terms of accommodation, food and fun but also on the time you spend with your friends.

It would not be fair to expect your friends to lay the burden on your friends much even if you will be sharing the costs. Therefore, plan for your accommodation, food and drinks, transport (round trip), shopping and fun and an extra amount for emergencies before leaving the house.

Fun & bonding

The main goal of a vacation is to have the most fun in a short period. Most vacation spots offer several activities to choose from such as spa days, jacuzzi nights.  You also have the option of wine accompanied by long conversations.

Ensure that you all agree on the activities you want to participate in to avoid conflicts. Activities also provide an opportunity to bond and be accountable for each other.
