Let’s face it: when you think of group travel, you can’t help but picture large, lethargic groups that slow down your desired pace and stub you from doing it all. Well, the reality couldn’t be farther from the truth. Group travel is much more than that. More fun. More memorable. And more exciting. So here’s the truth. Here’s what group travel is really about:
Have company when you need it the most –
Imagine that something goes wrong while on vacation. In a group, you won’t be a lone soul trying to get it all together. You’ll have that much needed company and more minds on board for figuring out a solution. In case you’re lost, it would be easier to find your way back with three people rather than on your own.
And there are just some experiences that are more memorable when shared with a person. Whether you are overwhelmed with emotion after skydiving or you’re experiencing life underwater for the first time, you have that someone with whom you can share your moment with.
Save money (A LOT)
Who doesn’t love saving money? Group travelling does just that for you. We all know and understand this logic: a shopkeeper will sell you a hat for 400 bucks and two hats for 500 bucks. Obviously, you’re buying two hats, irrespective of the fact that you only have one head.
When travelling in groups, you’re saving a ton of money on accommodation, travel and food. Most sightseeing spots also offer discounts for larger groups so you can cha-ching through your vacation in true Indian fashion.
Meet people you easily get along with (a.k.a buddies for life) –
Group travel is the best way to meet people who share similar interests with you. That means you could find another person who loves to wake up to watch sunrises with a cup of tea, go on late-night walks, shop for antiques or even go pub crawling.
You never know- this vacation could be the starting line for many friendships to come.
Have somebody to always take cool photos of you
That means no more awkwardly asking strangers to take photos of you and half- heartedly accepting the disastrous results that come with it. You won’t have to settle for badly lit pictures with half your arm cropped out and eighteen strangers photobombing anymore.
There’s always at least one overly enthusiastic and helpful photographer in each group. Usually they have a professional, swanky camera hanging around their neck and they can be spotted in their natural habitat i.e the most Instagram worthy location in the area.
Relax and leave the planning to the experts
The very thought of having a crazy amount of tabs open, each with a different website that tells you to do completely opposing things, can make your brain ache.
It’s exhausting to successfully plan a trip and even if you do, we all know there will be some last minute changes that will send you into panic mode. All that stress just defeats the purpose of going on a relaxing vacation.
Instead, leave the planning to the group travel experts, kick your feet up, lean back and relax. All you have to do is pack right and show up ready to party.
Have a spontaneous adventure –
Connecting with just the right people on a group trip means that you’re probably going to have a great time making memories with them. Suppose you find a fellow foodie, you now have someone to roam the streets of a new city, to find the best eating spots.
Regardless of your interest, you’re sure to find someone in your group who’s up to indulge in a little spontaneous adventure on the side. You can live out your dream of breaking away from the crowd to do your own little thing.
