How to Plan A Group Vacation to Hawaii
Over the years, group travel has become increasingly popular, and not just to Hawaii. Traveling in groups to far off destinations is the new “thing” for families, school groups, sports teams, and just groups of friends that are looking to reunite after a few years apart. Unless you’ve done the planning and coordinating of the trip, it is pretty hard to know where to start. Bringing everything together to create a great vacation takes a lot of work, conversation, and even some sacrifice.
How do you place a group vacation to Hawaii? The best way to get started, once the decision on destination has been made, is to nail down the dates. This can be the biggest challenge, so decide on multiple possibilities, and let the group decide. There are many things that prevent an individual from making the trip, so get started a few months ahead of time, and give everyone the chance to clear their schedules.
Once the dates have been set, it’s time to work on the actual trip, coordinating activities, lodging, and in some cases, travel. If everyone is coming from the same place, like with a school or church group, it actually makes it easier. Leaving on a set date on the flight that is available takes a lot of work out of the equation; however, if everyone is spread out, like with a family reunion, it gets a bit tricky. Knowing the date allows everyone to take care of his or her own flights, and that will fall on the individual to book.
The accommodations can be a bit tough, especially for large groups. Luckily, sites like Air BNB exist, so if you want a big house where everyone can stay, you can find that easily. Booking hotels for large groups need to be done well in advance so be sure to plan ahead. Hawaii is a very popular destination and hotels sell out nearly everyday.
As far as the activities, tours, things to do, and adventures, you can leave that to us. Contact our Groups Team to determine all of the possibilities for your group, and we’ll put together an agenda that everyone will love. We understand the logistics of each and every activity, know what is possible for each, and can even make sure you’re all together, based on the size of the group. We’ve encountered groups that book tours and activities individually, and they either sell out before everyone can book, or someone ends up on a different activity. This is not what we want for you, and by booking an activity especially for your group, we make sure that everyone is together, and is able to enjoy Hawaii together.
Planning a trip for a large group takes a lot of work, time, and can be downright exhausting, but once you arrive, it’ll all be worth it.
