Posted: February 7, 2023

Travelling is an exciting way for young adults to explore the world, meet new people, and learn about different cultures. While solo travel can be an incredible experience, travelling in a group can offer unique benefits and opportunities that are not available when travelling alone. 

Whether you are seeking adventure, cultural exchange, budget-friendly travel, or luxury experiences, there is a group travel option that can meet your needs. 

Types of Group Travel for Young Adults

There are a variety of travel groups to choose from, each offering different experiences. Some of the most popular types of group travel for young adults include:

Adventure travel groups

These groups are designed for those seeking outdoor adventures and new experiences. Activities can include hiking, rafting, surfing, and other adrenaline-fueled adventures.

Cultural exchange groups

These groups provide young adults with the opportunity to immerse themselves in local communities and cultures. Participants can learn about the history, customs, and traditions of a new country, and may also have the opportunity to learn a new language.

Backpacking and budget travel groups

These groups are perfect for young adults who are looking for an independent travel experience but still want the support and cost savings of travelling in a group. Backpacking and budget travel groups typically focus on budget-friendly accommodations and experiences.

Volunteer groups

For young adults looking to make a positive impact on the world, volunteer groups offer a unique opportunity to give back while also exploring new destinations. These groups typically focus on projects that support communities, protect the environment, and promote education and health. Volunteer and humanitarian groups are ideal for those who are passionate about making a difference and want to contribute to positive change.

What are the advantages of travel groups for young adults?

Travelling in a group offers a number of benefits for young adults. 

Safety in numbers: 

The most important factor is that travelling in a group can provide a sense of security and peace of mind for young people, especially when visiting new or unfamiliar destinations.

This might be your first extended trip away from home, or first time travelling abroad, so the security of a travel group can be a great comfort. 

Making new friends

Travelling in a group is a fantastic opportunity to meet new people and make new friends, creating lasting memories and a sense of community. Some of the friendships you make as a young adult will be with you for life.
