#TravelTipTuesday: Why you should travel in a group (even a group of strangers)!

Want a free trip? Book a group with your favorite travel advisor! Cruise lines, in particular love groups, and there are very nice rewards available for booking a group! In general, the group leader can travel for free, and everyone in the group gets extra perks, sometimes including discounted fare.

The good thing with a cruise is that you can see members of your group as much or as little as you like! Technically, you’re only a group because you’re booked together. You’re not forced to do anything together while traveling.

Group Ideas:

  1. A group of complete strangers

  2. Family Reunion

  3. Friends/Class Reunion

  4. Bible Study

  5. Book Club

  6. Solo Travelers

  7. Yoga Class

  8. Weddings/Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties

  9. Wine Group

  10. Supper Club

  11. Corporate Incentive Trips

  12. On & on & on….

Here are a few examples of how groups work with the cruise lines I love best:
