Hi

Looking to book a lads holiday (around 8 of us) for summer 2023. Most of us will be 17, one or two still 16. A lot of hotels have a policy of needing at least 1x 18+ year old with you which isn't ideal.

Wondering if anyone has any advice/tips to finding places, and also best places to go other than the main few.

Cheers.

I don't know of any ways to get around that rule. Maybe an older brother could travel with you?

I don't have one

Let me rephrase though - since there are a few that accept u18s in some places from where I've seen

Where are the best places (cheapest as well) to go other than the main ones (Ibiza, Magaluf, Sunny beach)?

Do any of your friends have an older brother who could go with you?
Greek islands are affordable to travel to

Bringing someone's sibling isn't really something we'd want to do (hopefully for obvious reasons)

Croatia. You could still struggle with accommodation though for U18s. Youth hostels or some campsites might be an option.

magaluf!! I've just been and i loved it, the strip is big enough for a big group to do and the hotels will be used to big groups. the strip is not as gross as people make out, the beach is still nice and palma isnt far if you fancy something different

Ah cool, we are looking for something like maga, still struggling to find any hotels for 17 year olds though

hey im 17 and off to maga next week, look at booking.com and on each hotel scroll down to the check in policy part, if it doesn’t say anything about needing an 18 then they’re probably already with a group of 17 year olds, to double check we emailed and they said all you need to do is bring a signed letter from a parent ! hope this helps

Try emailing/ringing hotels you're interested in- some may let you stay if you get and show permission from parents

Ah ok great, for the signed letter what did it have to say, or do they tend to give you a form?
