We here at Travel and Tour Hunters LOVE group travel (well all travel actually, we don’t discriminate) and here’s why!
You don’t have to do the all the planning by yourself because we have already done it for you!! This means that you have one less thing to worry about and you can focus on the trip ahead! On top of this, group trips can be somewhat cheaper due to a variety of group discounts and promotions. So not only can group trips be easier on your frame of mind, but they can also be easier on your wallet!
Traveling in a group can give you the chance to explore a place with a local or more seasoned traveller, which means that you’ll gain insider knowledge and learn more about the area (maybe even find a nice cup of coffee). Along with these, you might even be able to visit places or try things that are popular among the locals but aren’t as well-known to the general public.
When most people decide to travel in a group, they’re often accompanied by acquaintances, friends, or family. And while this can sometimes prove to be challenging, we agree that it can also be a great experience. We firmly believe that group travel allows you to create memories with your friends and family, which can lead to stronger relationships and many inside jokes! You’ll learn more about the people in your life, from their tastes to how they act under pressure and your relationships with them!
Perhaps you’ve decided to join a group trip where you don’t know anyone, well that’s great too, in fact, it’s very brave! Group travel can give you the chance to meet people and make new friends. You’ll meet individuals, who are also obsessed with travelling and may have experiences that are similar to your own. There’s no greater bonding experience than travelling with others. And the friendships made from travel often last for years and years after the trip is over.
Similarly, group trips will allow you to gain new perspectives, whether that’s through the trip itself or your interactions with others. Through a group trip, you’ll get to see parts of the world that you’ve never seen before or interact with people that you normally wouldn’t meet. Through your new acquaintances, you’ll connect with individuals of different backgrounds and insights that vary to your own. As a whole, group travel offers you eye-opening experiences and adventures to learn more about the world and the people in it.
So while this post only names a few reasons, we here at Travel and Tour Hunters hope that it has shown you some of the positives of group travel and we hope that it has inspired you to make your next trip a group one! Visit our ‘small group tours page’ to see our latest groups tours!
