5 Reasons why traveling in a group is more important than ever
by Alex on 29.06.
Why we love group travel
Picture this; lockdown is a thing of the past, the borders are opening one by one and finally, there is hope that the world of travel will go back to normal. We might not be there yet, but that time will come for sure. The question you might have is: What will traveling look like, once this pandemic is under control? No one knows the answer to this yet but what we do know is, now is not the time to venture out into the world by yourself. We are sure: Traveling in a group has never been so important and we want to tell you why.
1. If something happened abroad, it's better to be in a group than alone
God forbid something bad happens. But just imagine you fall ill in another country; Wouldn’t you much rather have lovely people around you who can help you and sort things out for you, rather than being all alone? When you don’t feel well or something happens, it’s much easier to deal with it when you travel in a group that can support you through it. And who knows, maybe you’re lucky enough to have a healthcare professional amongst you… now wouldn’t that be lucky!
2. Keeping your family and friends safe is vital
Finding people with the same attitude towards corona is easier than figuring out who in your close circle thinks about this pandemic the same way you do. Your parents are in their 60s and your best friend has diabetes? Be sure to keep them safe! Traveling with like-minded people your age, who all share similar opinions on how to handle this very unique situation is a great alternative. Find your next travel buddies on JoinMyTrip
3. Sharing the cost is a big plus
For many people, the effects of the Coronavirus can be felt most in their bank accounts. It’s taken its toll on employment status and wages so close friends and family might not be up for traveling to the next big destination any time soon. When you travel in a group, every cost is always split so the cost of renting a car, for example, becomes a lot cheaper compared to when you travel by yourself. But not just the cost is better when shared, experiences and adventures become better when you have other people to share them with.
4. Easier to find passionate travelers
We are sure that we’re not the only ones that cannot wait to get back out and carry on traveling the world. Most of you reading this blog post right now are counting the days until measures are relaxed and the first flight ticket can be booked again. So imagine how easy it will be to find people that will travel with you. It feels like we’ve all gone into a state of hibernation, stuck inside, not doing much. Let’s wake up together, be free, and HAVE FUN! Plan or discover your next trip on JoinMyTrip and find keen travel-addicts like yourself.
5. Make new friends in difficult times
Hard times make us bond more closely. We’ve all had to go through the same thing and this makes our community stronger than ever. Everyone is ready to make new friends and be around people. What better way than by experiencing amazing times together and making memories for life. We are sure that you will have the best time - ready, steady, join a trip!
As you can see, traveling in a group will fulfill you in ways it wouldn't have been able to before. It keeps you safe, you can share the cost & it is more fun than being by yourself.
