Social travelling is a new style of travelling which brings much more personal and intimate experience. Statistics show that more than 87% of travelers worldwide plan their trips using the Internet. They search the internet extensively before deciding upon the place they want to visit. Reviews from locals and from the people who have already been there plays a vital role in helping them decide. Most travelers would like to connect to the people from the places they are planning to visit ahead of the actual trip, which gives them a sense of familiarity when they visit the place.
Social Travelling vs. Average Travelling
People can find the updated information about the places they plan to visit or other promising places that may be possible travel destinations. They do not generally look for average hotels to stay or hiring an expensive travel agency to plan for it. Social travelers look for a more personalized experience, connect with locals, try the local cuisines. Social traveling allows visiting the place and get the feel of it before actually visiting the place.
An advantage of social travelling is that people can connect to others travelling to the same destination – making them their travel companions. This gives an opportunity to get in touch with the people who share same travelers’ enthusiasm for the destination. Planning a trip together gives an advantage of getting a ‘travel buddy’ and also saves on some tour expenses.
