Travel Friends with benefits

Here are seven reasons you should travel with friends:  

The planning process is Fun

Whether it’s the regular gatherings or the social media chat groups, planning travel is fun and planning it with friends is even better.

There is always someone to take photos of you

Selfies are popular and very cool, but it’s always nice to have someone who can take a photo of you and your travel companion(s) in front of beautiful scenery or an attraction.

You’re more likely to try new things

You have more confidence to be more adventurous when travelling with others.  You will be encouraged to visit museums and venues that you may not have otherwise visited if on your own.

It’s more affordable

Share the cost of accommodation, transportation and food.  Multiple people in any form of accommodation is always cheaper than a single person travelling.

It’s very social

Travelling with your friends and like-minded travellers is a unique opportunity to bond while experiencing new destinations, cultures and cuisines.  Travel broadens the mind, but travelling with friends deepens friendships.

It’s easier and safer

Travelling with a group eliminates the stress of planning itineraries, navigating various types of foreign transport and translating local dialects on your own.  Visiting tourist sites and attractions with your friends reduces the chance of getting lost or being a victim of pick-pockets or thieves. 

You’re creating memories

Have special experiences with your friends and you will create lasting memories.  Reminiscing post-travel is a lot more fun when with friends who have joined you for these unique travels.
