Advice on a Holiday for 16 Year OldsWatch this thread
Who am I kidding? We're just trying to justify a lads' holiday abroad and our parents have given us the 'okay' to do so. But, I was wondering, is it too stellar a hope? Would any places take on a group (around 5-8) of raucous and rowdy young lads? Okay, we could feign domestication and etiquette, but, in all seriousness, do any places (abroad) take 16 year olds? We'd prefer a hotel but I realise we could probably stay in a youth hostel.
Also, have you any advice on whereabouts to go if, indeed, any place would take us (speaking from self-experience, perhaps)? Here's basically a summary of what we desire:
a cheap holiday (most of us don't have that much to spend)
great entertainment possibilities
a beach (this one is a requisite!)
a leniency for teenage drinking
high temperatures (or, at least, comparatively with Britain!)
Do you have any other advice?
(This is all in my opinion as i have had two seperate group of mates have bad experiences with it)
My friends have experienced problems getting hotel, then they failed at getting into any clubs, couldnt drink at hotel. They may just of looked young etc. but still. They had nothing to do. Thats for both groups of my friends.
We easily managed to drink etc when we went on family&friend holidays type thing, where me and two mates would go with mum&dad etc. But still.. thats not what your after.
In my experience this kinda thing fails.In others it probably hasnt.. so its gonna be opinionated :P
My friends went camping in West Wales - whole week cost us £36 quid, so pretty cheap, but not for the faint hearted lol.
I suppose your best bet abroad would be France. The drinking age is 16, its pretty close and cheap to get to. Get a rail ticket and head down south to one of the larger towns and see about renting une caravane or staying in une auberge de jeunesse.
just dont forget you cant fly abroad without someone who is 18 or over or book the holiday unless you are 18 or over
but the hotel was Pine Hills, Hisaronu, Turkey. quite basic but was clean and you get what you pay for...and you'll probs be too drunk to notice a bit of dust lol
is especially good to go just before the summer holidays as there are less families with screaming children which is not fun if youve got a hangover lol and its much cheaper
if you want anymore info, msg me
As for the accommodation some hotels you're classed as an adult if you're over the age of 14 others may be 18, you could stay in a hostel, family or friends time share or flat, or stay in a villa which would be cheaper if more then 6 of you're going as you could split the cost. I would email or contact the owner first explain how mature and responsible you are and ask if its okay.
Holidays abroad are expensive so you must be sure of every thing you have to pay for such as flights, accommodation, travel (bus, taxi), food, drinks, travel insurance and spending money for activities. I would expect you to spend at least £400 each.
I recommend going to places like Greek Islands, Turkey, France, Malta and Amsterdam as they have more laid back laws on things like clubs ect. Although Turkey and Amsterdam may be harder to persuade your parents to let you go.
Your best option is probably going camping or places like Butlins or Trecobay although going abroad is possible if planned out properly.
we wanna go on holiday at the end of yr11, we will all be 16 and we have no budget issues coz we have found loads that are like £600pp and we all know we can afford that either through just having it or like split with parents but can anyone suggest any countries that would allow us to go at 16 and ive also checked legalities of flights so we know we can fly. So ye any countries just coz our very last resort is to go to one of the party members villa abroad that on fits like 7-8 out of the 10 going. so ye
France is a piece of piss to get to.
Greece/Spain/Italy/Turkey are cheap and have a lax attitude to underage drinking and general merryment.
Eastern Europe is good especially the Balkans.
what if my parents book a holiday for me and my friend who are 16, because then someone over 18 would legally have booked. then we get to the hotel and if weve booked then cant
