While independent travel and backpacking throughout Australia is one option for enjoying the “land down under”, group travel has a tremendous amount of benefits for making your experience one that you will never forget.
Organized group travel in fact has a lot of benefits you may not have thought of.
For one it allows you to meet other people that have the same interests. Traveling with others can create conversation and allow others to give opinions and input on where to go and what to see. It definitely helps with taking a lot of the guessing out on where to explore, as others may have insight that you aren’t aware. In contrast if you are traveling alone, you won’t have that information and could be doing a lot of guessing.
Traveling in groups throughout Australia can also save you money. Many attractions as well as utilities offer bulk discounts when you travel with larger groups. For example, if your group wants to try an indoor skydiving experience at iFlyWorld in Sydney you can get a group value rate that can save some cash for all participants.
If you are backpacking and are traveling to an area that is too far to walk, you probably have to rely on public transportation such as trains or taxis to get around. Public transportation though can add up! If you travel with a group you can join an organized tour group or simply find others and rent a van or mini-bus from a company such as Budget. Not only will you get a reduced cost on transportation but also can split the daily costs with the group associated with the rental fee.
Group travel also has a security benefit, especially if you are an outside tourist. Unfortunately in today’s world staying safe needs to be considered when traveling. By traveling with a group you have more eyes looking out for you and less likely to be involved in a situation where you may not belong.
All in all travel tours throughout Australia offer a lot of benefits. Not only will they reduce stress and planning but provide you with the opportunity to make new life-long friends.
Safe and Happy Travels!
