Traveling in a group, big or small, is
a great way to travel! Here’s why:
You create long-lasting bonds with your travel buddies. Whether you are traveling with people you know for an opportunity to reconnect or complete strangers with shared interests and passions, you will inevitably grow closer to your travel companions.
Its fun! There are inevitable gaps and downtime experiences during travel itineraries. From layovers, train rides, “out-to-sea” days on cruises, having a diverse group of people offers a lot of opportunities to pass the time in a more fun way.
Exclusive experiences. When you travel in a group you can often arrange exclusive/ private and/or specialized experiences, such as: private shore excursions just for your group on your cruise, or specialized tours that suit your group’s interests.
It can save you money. With volume, comes discount. Usually, the more people you have, the more of a discount you can get.
As a group leader, you can usually travel free! With most travel itineraries, once you reach a certain number of people/ rooms booked, the group leader often gets part or all of their trip free.
There is safety/ security in numbers. I think we all feel insecure sometimes in a new place. Traveling with buddies can help you feel (and be) more secure.
What kinds of group trips can I take?
The sky is the limit! You tell me what you envision and we’ll customize an experience perfect for your group. Here are some of my favorite examples of group trips:
- Wine businesses take wine club members on Wine-related River Cruises
- Breweries take clientele on a trip through Belgium’s finest breweries
- Distilleries take clientele through the varying regional Scottish Whisky distilleries
- Private school scholarship boards take families to the Galapagos
- Alumni Associations take alumni on an Alaskan Cruise
- Book clubs take members to literary inspired trips like seeing England through Jane Austen
- Military Associations take members to Normandy to visit the hallowed grounds of D-Day
- Sports clubs take athletes to all-inclusive resorts where they can participate in sports clinics
- Choirs take singers to Europe to sing in beautiful cathedrals
Sounds great! How do I do travel with my group?
- First, decide what kind of group you want to take.
- Second, decide where you want to go.
- Contact me.
- I do the hard stuff like booking and planning. You invite all the people you want to take!
- Then, you go.
