Solo Travel Vs Group Travel: What is Your Travel Style?

Travelling has forever been a treasured experience for most people, from families travelling for a vacation to students spending months backpacking before they finally move on to college. Travelling can seem scary, especially when you’re at the planning stage. If you’ve been trying to pick between travelling solo or going with your friends, let us help!

How to Decide Between Group Travel & Solo Travel?

While some people will swear by one style over another, please remember that no two people are similar and every trip is different. Both are good ways to travel and work perfectly for people.

These are a few important factors that come into play in both these travel styles:

  1. Trip Cost

    This is the first factor that most of us consider while making plans. The cost of the trip can be more for groups as you’re likely to book a tour company or a guide who will take care of your itinerary. In most cases these include expenses for food, lodging, transport etc. This cost is justifiable if your tour operator is offering great deals or you’re a huge group discount!

    On the other hand, travelling solo is entirely your expense and you can decide how much to spend and where. In case you feel restrained, you can budget along the way or cancel some plans depending on your pocket!

  2. Security

    Basic precautions are more than enough to secure any kind of trip. What's more, group trips provide better security to tourists in foreign countries. Most guides and tour organisers take many precautions like head counts, constant check-ups on co-travellers etc. to keep their group out of trouble.

    They also help with emergency medical aid in case of emergencies. While you consider your security, don’t forget to buy single-trip travel insurance for your upcoming vacation. It will keep you safe from many issues like baggage loss, medical emergencies, flight delays/cancellations, passport loss and a lot more.

  3. Comfort

    Travelling solo is comfortable when you're travelling to someplace familiar. But there are places where you may get a complete culture shock or not know their languages. In these cases, group travel with an expert guide can help you overcome these challenges and make your trip better.

  4. Independence

    If you’re a person who doesn’t mind following a set itinerary, then you’ll do well with group trips. On the other hand, if you want to explore things at your own pace and make impromptu decisions then you should consider travelling alone.

    You also need to consider other independent factors like food choice, choice of restaurants, means of transport and of course, the places you want to go to!

  5. Quality of Trip

    Your trip’s quality indicates your satisfaction, though this is purely subjective. Some people thrive in predictability whereas some may feel unfulfilled because of the rushed experience that a group journey comes with. On the other hand, if you don't want to travel to a place alone, a group trip will offer you multiple companions and you may even end up finding new friends!

Why Go for a Solo Trip?

Why Go for a Solo Trip

Nothing makes you more independent than travelling by yourself! You should go solo for your trip if:

  • You don’t like feeling restricted by a schedule
  • You want to manage your trip budget yourself and keep it flexible
  • You are travelling in a fairly safe place and security is not an issue
  • You don’t mind being on your own most of the time
  • You don’t want to spend a lot of money and are on a budget
  • You are comfortable with challenges that come with a new place and easily tackle tricky situations

What to Expect when Solo Travelling?

Solo travel is an enriching experience and it truly humbles you. You may find many quiet moments with nothing to do, which can make many people uncomfortable. However, this is the essence of going solo- you are responsible for your trip, your happiness, the things you do, the money you spend, the places you decide to visit or not visit, and everything else. You can expect this experience to stay for a lifetime and perhaps a life-changing one.

Why Go for a Group Trip?

Why Go for a Group Trip

Travelling with a group of friends is a sure way to have a great trip! However, if you’re planning a group trip via a tour company or organiser, you need to think before deciding. A group trip is perfect for you if:

  • You are going to an unfamiliar place with no cultural or linguistic knowledge
  • You don’t want the trouble of budgeting, planning, and booking for your trip
  • You are fine with limited flexibility and want to stick to a schedule
  • You don’t mind shelling out extra money
  • You want companionship during your journey
  • You are ready to compromise on things like getting stuck with people you may not like

Even if your group trip is well planned and hassle-free, don’t forget to get a travel insurance policy from Policybazaar.com where you can find plans of all types within your budget!

What to Expect when Group Travelling?

Group travel means instant friends, as there will be a handful of people you will see other continuously for the next few days. Sharing a room with another stranger or more may not appeal to many. Or, you could also feel a bit suffocated because of too many new people by not being able to relax in someone’s presence.

This group of strangers can offer an experience to remember, and you may end up making friends for life. However, there are all kinds of people in a group and you should be ready to adjust and be a good team player. Everything else will be taken care of by your tour operator!

Over to You,

Travelling solo or in a group are both rewarding experiences that every person should try once. Even if you're more inclined towards one of these, at least try the other one!

Both have their pros and cons so you're bound to benefit from both of them at some point. We hope this article shed some light on how to plan your trip. Just don't forget to get a single-trip travel insurance policy before starting your trip!
