  • Group travel refers to any organized, multi-day trip that you pre-book and on which you meet a group of other travelers who booked the same trip. These groups can range in size from a few people to full coach buses of 50 or more travelers. These groups will often include a trip leader, pre-planned activities, and will have most lodging and meals organized. Generally, a group is considered to be 10 or more people traveling together on the same itinerary, and these groups can consist of anyone from complete strangers to friends, coworkers, classmates, or teams. The growth in group travel is part of the larger social phenomenon termed “togethering”. Following the pandemic, travelers are more interested in experiential traveling, either alone, with family, or with a group. All-inclusive group tours have always been a popular option for travelers. Group travel tours are often also designed for travelers looking for specific experiences - like solo female travelers or LGBTQ+ group travel tours. Just as smaller retreat-style group travel has become more popular, so has the demand for private, small-group travel. Contemporary group travel experiences emphasize active engagement and immersive participation over passive observation. Participants are encouraged to immerse themselves in hands-on activities such as cooking classes, outdoor adventures, volunteering, and cultural workshops, fostering a deeper connection with the destination and its inhabitants.
