Here are the 5 Reasons Why Group Travel is the Way to Go!
When you hear the words “group travel” do you automatically think back to your school camp days? Is your initial response, “no thank you”?
Well, it’s time to change that mindset because organized trips are one of the best ways to travel! First things first, let’s deal with the most obvious question – what do we mean by group travel?
When we talk about group travel, we are referring to inclusive tour packages that have been compiled for savvy travelers who like to take advantage of trips that are prearranged, prepaid and include everything from a knowledgeable guide and transportation to accommodation, certain meals and admission fees to attractions along the way.
What are the advantages of group travel?
Here are some of the biggest benefits of group trips:
All of the details are sorted out for you!
Whether you are traveling alone, or simply prefer the convenience of not having to spend a lot of time online deciding where to stay and which route to take, group travel tours can be a complete lifesaver.
There will be free time to do your own thing
Just because you’re setting off on an adventure with a group of other people, it doesn’t mean you have to be joined at the hip 24/7. Your itinerary more than likely include free time for you to explore on your own. Also, once you’re on your vacation and you decide you don’t want to participate in an activity on your itinerary, you can opt out. Just keep in mind that what’s on your itinerary is what you’ve paid for and no refunds will be offered.
There is safety in numbers
Traveling alone can be a little daunting. There are many people who are enticed by economical last-minute solo vacations, but don’t really feel safe going on vacation alone – especially abroad. In a group setting, you are of course traveling with other likeminded individuals.
It’s so much more affordable!
Group travel companies have a lot of clout with accommodation and activity providers because they bring plenty of people their way. As such, they are able to negotiate great discount rates that you’d never be able to get by yourself. The same goes for restaurants, tourist attractions and more.
It’s a great way to meet people
So, while the notion of getting on a coach with a group of strangers to go on an adventure can seem a little strange, it’s actually a great way to meet new people you would not necessarily encounter throughout the course of your everyday life. Keep in mind that you all have one beautiful thing in common…..you want to travel!
And who knows? The greatest benefit is that you might just go home with a bunch of new buddies from all over the world!
