Pros and Cons of Group Travel

Group travel is ideal for people who for whatever reason, don’t want to travel independently.

Group travel has both advantages and disadvantages

  • Everything is organized by someone else – the itinerary, accommodation, actual travel from place to place, special visits to places of interest, food, insurance – an entire package is all put together for you.
  • You have company on hand – and that can be especially enjoyable if you are travelling alone. Not only do you feel safer, but you have people to share your experiences and enjoyment with.
  • You have a courier on hand to help you if anything goes wrong – for example, if you fall ill.
  • Many group travel companies have years of experience, so you know that you are staying at the best places, seeing the most interesting sights, and eating the nicest food.
