Travelling in groups is the surest way to have fun during your holiday. In fact, it is the same logic that is applied in parties. A party of 2 to 5 people is not as interesting as one with 30 people. Make sure the group is not too big as to become unmanageable.

Merits of Group Tours

Travelling in groups has over the years been the preferred way for going on a holiday. Mostly, people feel that there is safety in numbers. Others feel that unless you are a group, having fun might be very difficult especially in foreign countries. However, most people love travelling in groups because it is cheaper. Are there any other advantages of travelling in groups over and above the traditional benefits that groups derive? Yes there are and below are the additional ones.

Complimentary Skills

A group will have people with different skills. They can use these skills for the overall benefit of the group. For example; those who are good with cooking can cook, those who are navigators can give the group directions, those that can fish can fish for the whole group and those that know how to surf can give the others surfing lessons etc.

Handling Challenging Experience Together

There are some activities that you cannot engage in alone. Activities such as yachting, canoeing, camping, mountain climbing, and even hikes are not enjoyable when done alone. Imagine climbing Mount Everest with just the tour guide - boring, isn't it? Man is a social being and having company around is always welcome.

Travel Insurance

Taking an insurance cover as a group is not only easier, but it is also cheaper. Travel companies charge individual travellers a lot compared to the amount paid by people in a group. Apparently, the more you are in a group, the cheaper the coverage becomes.

Better Services

Groups are able to demand better services more easily. No restaurant will want to lose a whopping 30 hungry tourists. No tour company will want to get a bad reputation from 30 angry tourists. Airlines are afraid of offending large tour groups. You never know what they might do in pursuit of better services. In short, there is strength in numbers.

Travelling in groups is the surest way to have fun during your holiday. In fact, it is the same logic that is applied in parties. A party of 2 to 5 people is not as interesting as one with 30 people. Make sure the group is not too big as to become unmanageable.
