There are many reasons why people love to travel. You can experience a different culture, meet new people and create some amazing memories. However, travel isn’t for everyone, and some people prefer to stay in the comfort of their home. It can be quite a lonely affair if your love of travel doesn’t extend to your partner and friends. There’s no one to share the memories and responsibility with.
Fortunately, there are numerous escorted group travel opportunities available so you can travel with other like-minded people. But that’s not all! Here are some of the best benefits of group travel.
Meet new friends
You can meet other travellers on your group tour. Some companies pair travellers together so they can share a hotel room or tent. It all depends on the type of group travel experience. They usually try to pair you with someone of a similar age and gender.
You can spend time chatting with this person and get to know them. You might have a lot more in common than you realised at first. You can meet travellers from all over the world on your tour and expand your network of friends.
See new places
An escorted tour will often take you to places you didn’t think you wanted to see. Most group tours travel by bus, and you may find yourself in quite a few remote locations. You can explore different parts of the country and travel past the popular tourist spots. Your travel guide may share some fun facts about the different areas you’re travelling through. For example, on a group tour around Sicily, you can learn about the island’s history and some of its best hidden gems.
Say goodbye to organisation stress!
Organising an entire trip can be overwhelming and somewhat stressful. You need to think about transport, accommodation, activities, money, vaccines and much more. You need to arrange transport between your destinations and figure out how to get from A to B. On an escorted tour, all of the logistics are already planned and booked for you. You can sit back, relax and enjoy the journey.
Eliminate travel worries
Travelling alone can be dangerous at times, especially in less touristy areas. With escorted group travel, you can stay safe with your travelling group and avoid any dangerous areas. Your tour guide will give you advice on the local area and the places to stay clear from. Every city has a few potentially dangerous areasand streets that tourists should stay away from.
More bang for your buck
You can often get a lot more for your money with a group tour. Most companies offer a package deal with accommodation, travel and activities included. You can stay within your budget and save money – win, win!
