Travel is an amazing aspect of life and it's even better when you can share that with those closest to you. Unfortunately, everyone you know may not be the ideal travel companion. Tiffany Heard breaks it down with 10 travel types you may encounter and some advice to prepare for interaction with them. Can you relate?

I love to travel with my girlfriends but every friend you have can’t be your traveling buddy. Let me know if you can identify any of your friends in this travel squad.

1. Ms. I’ll pay you back when I get my check next week.
This friend is always ready to book a trip. The problem is, she has to wait for her unemployment or tax return check before she can pay for her flight. When you reach your destination, she only orders an appetizer and water hoping you will share your food. She will find something that she doesn’t like about the restaurant. This is done in order to avoid paying a tip. Before the trip is complete, she will run out of money and ask to borrow $50, knowing that she can’t repay you until 2 weeks later.

Advice: Inform her in advance that she may starve or be forced to stay in the room if she does not spend her money wisely. You do not have extra funds to loan her.

2. Ms. I love Bae so Much.

You are planning an all-girls trip and she wants to bring her boyfriend. You tell her,” No, we are not bringing sand to the beach”. While on vacation she calls and Facetime’s her boyfriend ever couple hours. At the day party, she refuses to engage with any other males and appears bothered that anyone would dare try to talk to her. She wants to go back to the room early to call him before he goes to bed.

Advice: Leave her at home and tell her to plan a trip with bae next time.

3. Ms. I’m on my way but doesn’t arrive for another 45 minutes.
This is the friend who you call several times to make sure they are on their way. They often arrive an hour before the plane is scheduled for departure. When it is time to leave the hotel room, they take the longest shower, has to apply a full face of makeup and takes their time leaving the room, having everyone waiting for them to arrive to go to the next destination. When it’s time to go out at night, everyone has to wait for her because she has to pick out the perfect outfit, iron and do her hair.
Advice: Remind her that the crew will leave her if she is not ready at the designated time.
