Being on a group trip… sometimes it’s the best thing in the world, and sometimes it’s the worst.

Actually, according to our survey, more than 50% of all travelers have experienced conflicts when planning a trip in a group.
Lentii is here to help avoid that.
In this article, we have gathered all the tips for those of you who are tired of experiencing the above-mentioned problems. If you are wondering how you could be worry-free about your next group trip, then keep on reading
1. Choose at least one Trip Planner of the group
Yes, you read correctly. You need to have one or multiple people in charge, even if you are going to make all the decisions together. There has to be one go-to person who makes sure everything is going according to the plan you made.
If you want, you can assign the leadership roles of the trip to multiple people, for example, someone can be in charge of the accommodation, someone of the attractions to visit, etc.
Having a few passionated Trip Planners will prevent you from wasting time on silly discussions and ensure the best travel experiences that you could possibly imagine.
2. Discuss the budget for your group trip!
Our survey also revealed the issue that is most likely to cause conflict when planning in a group is the budget.
