Travel is invaluable for personal growth, and taking time to consider a group trip can help! Immersing yourself in new cultures, trying out new foods, visiting architectural and natural wonders, and building connections all help you learn and grow as a person.
That said, traveling can be daunting. You might have the travel bug, while your friends may not. Also, setting out into the unknown on your own can be stressful. Luckily though, you don’t have to! There are tons of like-minded women who have the same craving as you do for adventure and travel! And we are here to bring you all together.
Now we aren’t discounting the benefits of solo travel, but group travel experiences are so fulfilling and fun! If you are ready to start ticking some items off your bucket list, here are six reasons you should book a group trip with Luxe Tribes this year:
1. Everything is already planned for you – all you have to do is book your flight!
Planning for a trip can often be so stressful that it completely overshadows the excitement for the trip itself. You may have seen a beautiful photo of a beach in Phuket, Thailand on Instagram, but organizing to get yourself there is far from straightforward. Doing your research, booking flights, accommodation and transportation, and organizing tours take time and can be exhausting, especially if you are doing it on your own.
In addition to these, navigating a new country by yourself is difficult. But with a group trip, everything is planned for you! You just get to relax and enjoy the adventure without having to worry about logistics. All your excursions, accommodation, food, and transport are handled. No hassle equals more fun!
2. Expand your network
One of the best parts about joining our group trips is the chance to expand your network and make friends from all over the world! You can come solo and leave with lifelong friends who love traveling as much as you do. Making new friends when you’re traveling solo can be hard work, but a group trip makes it as easy as pie.
The people you will meet aren’t the people you’d necessarily just come across in your day-to-day life. While you can meet people at work or social events, you may not share the same interests such as traveling, and that’s ok. But building a network of like-minded individuals who bond based on life-changing experiences will add so much value to your life. And who knows? You just might go visit them in their home country one day!
3. Solo travel without feeling lonely
Solo travel is fulfilling and great for building confidence, but we’d be lying if we said it doesn’t get a bit lonely sometimes. You can have unique experiences, but without anyone to revel in these experiences with, they may not be as memorable. That’s not to say you should never experience solo travel; it is just that some experiences can simply be more impactful when shared with others.
Many women would prefer to travel with their friends, but it’s often a challenge to get a group together who want the same thing. You can end up going on your own and missing the companionship you crave. By booking a group trip, you can join us as a solo traveler, but you’ll never feel lonely.
4. Know EXACTLY how much money you’ll be spending upfront
Surprises are fun, but not when it comes to spending money. When you take a trip on your own, there are always surprise expenses that pop up. It can be tough to accurately budget how much you’ll need because there’s a lot you can’t book ahead for; like meals and local tours. And unless you have a strict plan, you may not even book all your accommodation in advance. Instead, you pay for things as you go. This often leads to paying premium rates, such as for last-minute accommodation or higher-priced entrance fees.
By booking a group trip, you know exactly how much money you’ll be spending upfront, with no hidden fees! This will allow you to budget your money accordingly. You can save hundreds of dollars by booking a group trip with us, enabling you to take advantage of our group discounts and partnerships. Plus, you will avoid being the victim of any tourist scams!
The safety of each country varies, but you’re always going to be safer traveling in a group than traveling on your own. We travel to have fun and experience the world. Feeling unsafe can take most of the fun away. By traveling in a group, you are much less likely to be the target of any criminal. Plus, you’ll always have leaders with you who know the areas and have your back. When you do have free time, you’ll benefit from inside knowledge of which areas are safest and which are better to avoid.
6. Discover hidden gems
No matter how thorough you are with your research before traveling, you are still likely to miss a few things. Finding hidden gems and local hotspots is one of the best parts of traveling to a new place, but you often can’t find information about them online. Unless you already know someone in the area you’re traveling to, then you might hit up the main tourist attractions but miss the real gems!
Group tour operators have all the insider connections. We’ve formed relationships with local guides and can ensure you get the chance to visit all the places you want to go, and some you probably didn’t even know existed!
Our group trip calendar has a wide range of countries to choose from and options for any budget. So whether you’re looking for a glam getaway to Dubai or a spring break in Bali, we’ve got you covered!!
