    Hello, I have a question that all 15 year olds would be asking.
    Can I travel with my friends at 16? I know it would depend on the airline, but before my mother books it, I would like to know.

    My best friend is 6 months older than me anyways, she'll be 17 and for me I'll be 16. Plus this is after my senior prom.

    Give me answers, Thanks

    It's not just the airline. You may also have to check with the hotel. Some require an adult (16 or 17) to be present as well.

    It depends where you want to go, Europe you'll be fine you just need a letter from your parents...America you need to be over 18 to get a hotel room...
