A sistercation offers the chance to spend quality time with your beloved sibling as you explore destinations together and try out new things.

Here are some tips to consider for the perfect sistercation:

Plan in advance

For your sistercation to be successful, you will require a bit more co-ordination than a solo trip. As such, planning early will work to your advantage. It will afford you the liberty of securing the best deals on various bookings including accommodation, flights and activities. Plus, your trip will flow more smoothly and be more organised.


It is important to be clear on what you would like to get out of the trip. Whether you are travelling with only one sister or as a sisterhood group, it is essential that everyone on the sistercation feels accommodated and has activities that they will enjoy.

Capture moments and enjoy

Being able to travel with your sister is a special experience. Be sure to bring your camera along to capture as many special moments as possible.

Additionally, should there be any dull moments or disagreements, remember that the aim is to enjoy yourselves. Deal with misunderstandings as quickly and peacefully as possible, and get back to having fun and making memories.
