With group travel being trendier than ever, it's no wonder that destination bachelorette parties are trending, too. Brides-to-be and their besties are taking to the road and sky to have one last "hurrah" before tying the knot. And thanks to the options offered by accommodation sites, squads can book spacious dwellings and split the cost for an affordable getaway that lasts longer than your average party.
Ali Killam, consumer trends spokesperson at Airbnb, says the company has seen an uptick in group travel in recent years. "Group travel has become increasingly popular, given the ease of booking a wide variety of homes on the platform for all party sizes and celebrations," she explains. "Plus, with our 'pay less upfront' feature, groups can easily manage the financial aspect of planning by paying for part of the trip when they book, and then [paying for] the remaining balance closer to the check-in date."
If you're looking for an unforgettable way to bid your singlehood farewell, consider taking your crew out of town, state, or even country. Ahead, the experts at Airbnb give their top picks for the best listings to book a bachelorette bash.
