Nothing builds bonds and brings people closer together quite like travel. That’s why groups love to travel together! Whether you’re planning a big family trip, a tropical getaway for your destination wedding, or a rewarding vacation for your best employees, group travel is guaranteed to leave its mark in the best kind of way. You and your fellow travelers will make lasting memories together in absolutely spellbinding destinations — memories you can reminisce about together for years to come. But how do you choose the perfect vacation type for your group? Some types of vacations are better suited to group travel than others. We’ve picked our four favorite vacation types that make planning a breeze for group travel:
The Top Four Vacations for Group Travel:
Take to the open seas with your family, friends, or small group for a guaranteed rousing good time for everyone! Ocean cruises are a great option for group vacations because there really is something for everyone. More active travelers can take advantage of daily excursions while those who want to relax can hang by the pool. Meet up in the evening for a group dinner and share about the day’s experiences. What’s more, many luxury cruise lines have meeting rooms and reception areas. If booked well in advance, you can reserve a room for your own group event, whether it’s an educational seminar for your affinity group or a fun champagne reception for your family reunion.
River cruising represents a more upscale approach to group travel. Generally speaking, it’s more intimate, refined, and can take you to places big ocean liners just can’t. Imagine: waking up to sunlight streaming through your cabin window, the water so close to you below that it could almost splash your face. You watch as verdant green countryside, studded with impressive castles, rolls by. Later, you join your family, friends, or small group for an intimate walking tour of the quaint European town you just docked in. Your group dines together at night, toasting to another spectacular day upon your river cruise! These intimate luxury cruises are often centered around a theme, like France’s wine country or the castles of the Rhine region, which means you and your group can explore shared interests together.
All Inclusive Resorts:
All inclusive resorts work for a range of group travel types like destination weddings, family reunions, or when your family and friends want to get together. You can gather your friends for an electrifying week-long stay, treat your family to fun at a family-friendly all inclusive resort, or even host your organization’s next event in paradise. What’s more, all inclusive group resorts are wonderful settings for destination weddings. Picture tying the knot surrounded by your loved ones, with an incredible, oceanfront playground to explore together. After your ceremony shared with friends and family, you get to indulge in the romantic side of the resort on your honeymoon! If you’ll be having children or teens at your destination wedding, an all inclusive resort can still work for your group. Just choose a family-friendly resort, like the stunning Beaches Turks & Caicos.
Small Group Tours:
For small groups of family members, friends, or any other type of group that wants to explore together — instead of just relax around the pool or on the ship deck — small group tours will meet your needs. Reputable tour companies like Tauck, Adventures by Disney, and Abercrombie & Kent design group tours led by expert guides to top destinations all around the world. Our group travel tip for explorers and adventurers: Explore Morocco by camelback, bike ride through the Tuscan countryside, or tour the grand champagne houses of France!
We can also organize custom itineraries for groups interested in faith-based travel. There’s nothing more powerful than traveling to sacred religious sites to strengthen your bond with your fellow travelers — and your own faith.
