Holiday without a member of the group.

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    In desperate need of some advice.

    We are a group of 5, two boys and three girls. We have been talking about going on holiday together for a while and were about to book one when one of our group said they could only afford a maximum budget of £150, the holidays we were looking at really could not stretch to that budget as the flights are £100 alone.

    Some of the group have suggested going without him if he offers, but I don't feel comfortable with that. The whole idea of the holiday was going as a group before we graduate and never live together again. I'm not sure it's a 'friendly' thing to do to leave one member of the group behind because he can't afford it even if he offers.

    Is going without him harsh? We were looking at doing so days out in the UK together anyway so would it be more reasonable and understanding to instead go on a few more of those to meet his budget of £150?

    Thanks in advance all, I'm having a bit of a moral dilemma!

    personally I don't think it's unreasonable if someone can't afford a holiday that you guys go without them, it's not your fault they don't have the money and I think it's quite common when friends go away together for there to have been someone who couldn't afford to go
