Planning group travel 

Traveling with other people is safer and more fun when exploring new destinations, cultures, and cuisines together. The experience of navigating a new country with a fellow traveler, the language barrier, and other issues enhance travelers' friendships.

Despite the fun of traveling in a group, planning a group trip can be highly complex and time-consuming. You know how stressful it can be to coordinate plans with more than two people and how hard it is to please everyone. 

benefits of group travel

Traveling with a group has many benefits.


Earning a free trip may sound like a distant dream, but it is easier than you think!


If you have a group of 10 or more friends or family members you want to go on vacation with, you can travel at a discount or even free!


Most resorts, cruises, and tour companies give the group leader a free room or discounted trip when a group books 5 to 10 or more rooms. The group leader will benefit from organizing a group trip, and the entire group can also benefit.
