There are many benefits to group travel—beyond safety (and fun!) in numbers, it’s an opportunity to meet new friends and let someone else take care of all the details!
As Larry Olmsted shared in a ForbesLife article detailing his successful foray into group travel after 20 years as a professional (and very independent) traveler: “these kinds of trips are incredibly popular worldwide, and for many good reasons [including] turnkey convenience … and tremendous bang for the buck – even for luxury travelers.”
Luxury Travel Agent can help you find your just-right group trip; in the meantime, here are some things to keep in mind when considering group travel:
Know the ABCs of Group Travel
Planning a trip can be a time-consuming, anxiety-producing process, especially when you take into account every must-see sight and must-try experience, not to mention every preference of those in your traveling party. As an alternative, you can simply plug into a carefully-designed, expertly-planned group trip where all the work is done for you, so all you have to do is show up and enjoy yourself.
There are many options available when it comes to group travel, and the first step is determining your ideal group size, which can range from an intimate gathering of 12 to a full bus of 50 (and anywhere in between).
From there, your choices include:
● Transportation: From private jet to mini-bus to mega-coach (or a
combination of all three)—how you go often depends on where you go and
how many of you there are traveling together;
● Accommodations: The options are many, depending on the destination
and group size, and range from charming inns to full-service luxury hotels;
● Speed: Take your pick between anything from an unhurried itinerary that focuses on a specific area to a fast-paced multi-country tour; and
● Theme: One of our favorite ways to experience group travel is to join a
guided tour that highlights an area of interest, say hiking, biking, walking, or food and wine.
