5 benefits of travelling in a large group

Enhanced safety and security

Traveling with a large group of people provides a heightened sense of safety and security. With more eyes watching out for one another, the risk of becoming a target for pickpockets or other forms of petty crime is significantly reduced. 

Additionally, navigating unfamiliar territories as a group can deter potential threats, providing a reassuring presence for each individual. By organising a trip with 10, 15, 20, or even 50 people, you can collectively look out for each other, ensuring a safer and more secure travel experience to most places around the world.

This might even convince some of the people in your group to actually take the risk and travel overseas because they know they will be joining others that they know. It removes the fear and anxiety around travelling on your own or just with another person.

Cost-effective advantages of group travel

We are giving away one of our secrets as a travel agent, but one of the most appealing aspects of traveling in a large group is the potential for cost savings. 

Group travel often offers discounts on accommodation, transportation, attractions and land tours. Hotels, cruise ships or tour operators are more likely to provide competitive rates for large bookings, and group discounts can be negotiated for guided tours, museums, and other attractions. 

Additionally, splitting expenses such as transportation, meals, and shared activities can significantly reduce individual costs. By pooling resources and leveraging the advantage of group rates, a holiday to say Europe becomes more affordable, allowing everyone to explore and enjoy more within their budgets.

It also opens up the opportunity to travel in luxury, like chartering a boat for example, because you have such a large group with the costs split amongst so many people. Imagine going on a cruise with forty people where you have the boat to yourselves to look at historic sites.


Customised travel itineraries for large groups

Traveling in a large group provides the opportunity to tailor experiences and plan group activities with customised itineraries. As a travel agent when we speak to tour operators it makes our task of negotiating on your behalf a lot easier if we can say we want ten or twenty spots for your large group.

Places like Europe offer an array of group-friendly options, such as guided tours, river cruises, cooking classes, and team-building activities. 

These activities not only cater to diverse interests and preferences within the group but also create opportunities for shared experiences and bonding. Exploring historical landmarks, immersing in local customs, and participating in group adventures contribute to a sense of unity and collective enjoyment, making the trip even more memorable.

Each part of a holiday itinerary can be created to have a mix of free time, group activities and even optional components that can keep everyone happy whether they are children or adults.

Group tours to get cultural experiences

If you are thinking about travelling to a place like Europe for example, it is renowned for its rich cultural heritage and diversity. Traveling in a large group allows for a broader range of perspectives and experiences as members share their unique backgrounds and insights. 

The combination of customised itinerary, a mix of group or individual experiences and travelling say on a charter boat can mean that you are exploring different countries and cities together with opportunities to engage with local communities and interact with people from diverse backgrounds.

This cultural exchange fosters tolerance, understanding, and appreciation for different ways of life, broadening horizons and enriching personal growth. By experiencing Europe through the lens of a large group, you can gain a deeper understanding of the world and cultivate a greater sense of global citizenship.

This brings everyone closer as you share stories along the way while you travel from one destination to another.


Organising a large group to travel overseas is very easy
