No matter if you're planning a group vacation to the Bahamas, Europe, or the Grand Canyon, one of the most important considerations is lodging. Many travelers, myself included, have had the experience of arriving at a hotel or campsite, only to feel disappointed by the lack of cleanliness or the limited amenities. When traveling with a group of people, meeting the needs and desires of the entire group can be quite challenging.

If you're in charge of planning and booking the lodging for a group vacation, you need to sit your group down and ask some key travel questions. It's important to find out first and foremost if any of the members of your group have special needs. If group members need wheelchair access, proximity to medical facilities or private bathrooms, it's essential to find a hotel that provides these amenities.

Tips for Saving Money on Group Hotel Rates

Another important consideration when booking a hotel for your group is comfort. You can often save money by asking group members to share hotel rooms. This is especially popular among student travelers. Some European hotels offer rooms that sleep up to four people. It's a good idea to check with group members to see if this is a viable option for your vacation.

If you want to save money on group hotel rates, it's a good idea to find a hotel located just outside the city center. Hotels located in popular tourist areas tend to be more expensive than those on the perimeter. If this option is appealing to the group, you still need to find a hotel with public transportation nearby.
