Travelling independently can be wonderful there’s no denying that. But going on a Holidays of Australia & the World exclusive group trip can be even more rewarding. Here’s why…
You’ll have no end of travel buddies.
You’ll never feel alone or lonely because you’ll always be surrounded by like-minded people who also love to travel.
It’s stress-free, because your group leader’s job is to solve any problems.
Group travel usually means there’s a host or leader/guide travelling with you, and that means all Nervous-Nelly travellers you can relax, knowing any unforeseen circumstances will be dealt with professionally.
You can still have time to yourself.
Group travel is always designed to have the perfect balance between group touring/activities and ‘free time.’ So you’ll have the opportunity to get away from your group if you’re needing some quiet or indulgent ‘me-time’.
You never know who you’ll meet.
Most group travellers will tell you the most rewarding part of group travel is meeting new people. You’ll connect with so many travellers – all with different backgrounds, cultures and travel tales to share.
You’ll gain new perspectives.
Through both the trip itself and the people you’ll travel with, you’ll gain a whole new outlook on life. You’ll enjoy so many eye-opening experiences and cultural adventures and that’s before you even get off the bus or ship!
You can see things independent travellers can’t.
Many group tours feature exclusive activities or events that have been tailor-made for your group and may not be available to independent travellers. And don’t forget to smile at all those independent travellers as you jump the queue at that famous tourist spot!
You’ll come home with the ultimate souvenir – new friends.
Travelling as a group creates an instant bond that can last a lifetime. You’ll return home with a whole new network of travel buddies and will probably immediately start planning your next trip.
Just one booking and it’s all done.
With group travel, everything is taken care of. With just one booking. Can you imagine trying to do a trip like our feature holiday below – you’d take weeks to book hotels in Beijing and Shanghai, get your Great Wall pass, secure a seat on the Bullet Train, grab tickets to the Terracotta Warriors (gosh how do we get there?) then organise your cruise including transfers to the cruise terminal. Forget it! We’ve done it all, so you don’t have to. And that’s the beauty of group travel.
