Why Go on a Group Vacation
Few things can be as exhilarating as landing in a foreign country completely on your own, but it can also be a nerve-wracking experience. You don’t know anyone, and all your plans will have to be for one. That means no one to enjoy a play with you or sit at a bar or restaurant with you.
While solo traveling can be fun, group vacations offer more opportunities for fun and excitement. Whether you’re single, in a relationship, a student, an adventure traveler or over the age of 50, group vacations bring likeminded people together for exciting excursions all over the world.
Thinking about taking a group vacation? Here’s why you should be considering one.
Booking flights, trains and hotels can quickly turn into a house-of-cards situation. Be late to one flight and suddenly all your other plans fall down.
When you choose a group vacation, all the little details are handled for you. That means airlines, hotels and event tickets. Your tour director will handle all the transportation each day, and all you’ll have to do is sit back and relax.
If you don’t like following a schedule, that’s okay too. While excursions are planned in advance by your tour director, you don’t have to go on all of them. Want to explore a French market while everyone else goes to the Eiffel Tower? That’s okay.! You’re free to pick and choose which activities you want to try so if you need a day to relax and explore the city on your own terms, you can venture off.
As the phrase goes, there are safety in numbers. If you feel particularly anxious about traveling alone, going on a group vacation can help you feel more secure. You’ll have people looking out for you, and if you get lost, you’ll have your friends’ and tour director’s contact information to get you back to your hotel.
Seeing the Eiffel Tower or Taj Mahal for the first time is a one-in-a-lifetime experience. Sure, you could experience it on your own, but it would be more fun to see it with a new friend.
Group vacations ensure you’re never truly traveling alone. You’ll travel with people who share the same viewpoints and values as you, so you’ll never run out of things to talk about. As you experience this new country, you’ll bond over your shared journey and make lifelong friends in the process.
Even if you’re traveling with a significant other, it’s nice to have others around to talk with. You’ll learn more about them and feel less dependent on your significant other as your only companion.
Nothing brings people together like sharing a travel adventure together. Whether you got lost trying to find the Eiffel Tower or tastes some of the best French macaroons together, the memories of your experiences will last a lifetime – long after you return home.
Group vacations bring strangers together and turn them into friends. When you return, you’ll have a great network of friends all over the country. You might visit each other or plan new and exciting trips together.
