5 Ways to Travel as a Group

Captivating city breaks, fascinating river cruises, trips of a lifetime… there’s so much choice on our holidays whether travelling solo, as a couple or with a few friends. But did you know that you can enjoy all our holidays as a larger group with your friends and family? Whether it’s culture, cuisine or adventure your group is seeking, they’re the perfect way of discovering the hidden gems of a destination without the need to organise the details yourself. From best friends from school to members of the same club, here are a few types of holiday and why your group will love them.

What’s more, groups of 10 will receive 10% money back – so extra spending money to buy a round of celebration drinks.

City breaks to inspire
Our fascinating city breaks are a popular choice for first time group holidays, where travellers can get to the heart of a destination in a short space of time. Our city breaks are packed full of visits and guided tours with experts who can provide revealing insights into the history and culture of some of Europe’s most exciting cities, with the likes of Berlin, Bruges and Bologna gracing the collection.

Unforgettable UK tours
Newly added to our award-winning tours, you’ll now find UK holidays to choose from. These are perfect for groups who want the Riviera experience but closer to home, preferring to discover what makes the British Isles a beautiful place to be. Perhaps experience the best of the Cotswolds bursting with character and charm, or head to the Peak District, embracing the history, heritage and scenery that make up the heart of Derbyshire. Or maybe your group would love to uncover the delights of beautiful Bath, Somerset & Glastonbury or discover the Devonshire Coast and Dartmoor, where rich history and natural beauty entwine.

Adriatic yachts
Our luxury yacht holidays provide an exclusive atmosphere of only 40 passengers, all whilst taking in the breath-taking Adriatic coast. So imagine as a group of around 15, you’d practically be getting your own yacht, cruising along the Croatia coastlines and visiting the likes of Split and Dubrovnik, from as little as £1,249 per person for 8 days. A typical day on board a luxurious yacht cruise might involve lounging on the sun deck listening to the calming waves with your morning coffee as you arrive at a charming coastal town. Plus, our tour managers will be on board to ensure your group enjoys every moment of your cruise, and guide you on fascinating tours.

Award-winning river cruises
A tour at every port, on-board dining included and incredible guides to help make the most of your holiday. Our river cruises are recommended by Which? each year because we go the extra mile to ensure an amazing experience. For groups, this means that booking a holiday for a larger number of people is stress free. You won’t have to think about restaurant reservations, arranging entrance fees or booking each visit individually, because the itinerary will do that for you. On top of that, our dedicated group travel team will be able to help with the details, from taking payment for your group member individually to seating your group together on the Eurostar or plane.

Worldwide adventures
In the same way as our other holidays, our worldwide tours boast carefully crafted itineraries which bring out the best of each town, city or country. The worldwide collections are suited to the more adventurous of groups, because there’s always a mix of guided tours and some planned meals, with more free time to explore or take advantage of unique cuisines by arranging some of your own dining. This isn’t to say there isn’t always advice at hand from tour managers, who love to share their secrets on the best street food vendors, authentic markets or beauty spots. Consulting our groups team means you can add the perfect balance to a worldwide holiday, ensuring you are seated together on the long haul flight and not having the one person who has to secure bookings by paying for the whole group. We’ll help arrange that for you, so you can focus on the wonder of seeing the world together.
