Why Solo Group Trips Are The BEST Way To Travel
Yes you read that correctly. I know Solo and group don’t exactly go together but hear me out. Solo group trips combine the best of both worlds. You have the flexibility you’d get if you went alone but with added bonus of having someone to share the experience with.What could be better than that?
Here’s a list of my top 4 reasons why solo group trips are the best way to travel.
1. No more FOMO
If you have any form of social media, then I know you’ve seen countless vacation photos pop-up on your feed. Are you the kind to skip over them or maybe give them a passive-aggressive double tap? Well no more. By joining a group trip you can be that girl posting all the “Living My Best Life” photos for the gram. Stop putting your life on hold waiting for the right time and book the trip sis.
2. There’s Safety in Numbers
Have you been thinking about booking a solo trip for a while but the idea of being completely alone in a new country terrifies you? Listen, that is a perfectly normal reaction given the circumstances. Solo group trips can be just the confidence boost you need to test the waters. Traveling in a group gives you the reassurance of protection in your tribe, but still allows for independence if you choose. You aren’t confined to stick to a strict plan, in most cases, and alone time is often factored into your itinerary.
3. Everything is Planned for You
Is there really anything better than hassle-free worry-free travel? This point could’ve really been a post on its own. Have you ever tried orchestrating your own travel plans? It can be overwhelming at best, and downright impossible at its worst. Especially if you are planning your own international trip. As someone who recently started planning a lot of my own trips over the last 3 months, I can tell you IT’S WORK.
There are so many variables at play, like will you have transportation from the airport? What do you do if your flight lands earlier than your check-in time? How can you tell if the excursions you booked are legit? Who do you contact if something doesn’t go as planned?
I could go on and on because the list of potential headaches just doesn’t end. Thankfully, with solo group trips, all of these things are taken care of for you. Yep! You can truly kick back, relax, and enjoy your trip from the minute you touch down.
4. New Friends Who Dis
Anyone else’s friends let them down time after time? I completely understand that life happens and funds aren’t always there, but it can be very discouraging when you are continually told “next time”. The beauty of solo group trips is that women just like you have come together for a similar goal. Travel.
Establishing a bond is almost impossible not to do when you are connecting with like minded women in beautiful countries while embarking on experiences you can’t believe. Who else can better relate than the women you’re traveling with? The stories you’ll have and laughter you’ll share is bound to open the doors to new meaningful friendships. And guess what? You may just find yourself a travel buddy in the process.
With more millennial women of color than ever having disposable income, it’s never been a better time to travel. If you’re tired of your friends getting your hopes up only to flake on you at the last minute, it’s time you gave solo group travel a try.
