World Ventures:Group travel

By Standard Reporter | July 9th 2017

Kenyans have started embracing the ‘holiday’ culture which for a very long time was deemed to be for international tourists. During school holidays, more families are flocking the white sandy beaches, game reserves and national parks to take in the breathtaking sights and enjoy the beautiful landscapes of the country.

More and more people are planning for holidays together; group travel is becoming a more appealing option for many reasons.

Besides individuals coming together to plan for their holidays, companies have emerged both locally and internationally to offer group travel packages for travellers. 

WorldVentures, the world’s largest direct seller of curated group travel is one such company. The main product of the company DreamTrips, is a travel club community where members experience customized travel opportunities and valuable deals at selected restaurants, hotels, excursions and entertainment venues in destinations all over the world. 

There are many benefits of taking in the sights and creating holiday memories with not only family but friends. So as you plan that holiday getaway, here are some benefits of looping in some ‘travel buddies’.

Get out of your comfort zone: A colleague will challenge you to fire up the adrenaline and zip line or bungee jump as scream your lungs out. Whatever it is, some experiences will definitely make you braver and get you out of your usual holiday routine.

Companionship: A group of people helps you pass time during those long flights and layovers.

Safety: There is safety in numbers. Visiting tourist sites and attractions with a group is safer as it reduces the chances of becoming a crime target or lost

Cost effective: Holidaying with a group can help you reduce travel expenses since everyone will be sharing the costs of accommodation, transportation et cetera.  It also allows you to take advantage of the group rates and discounts that most resorts and airlines offer.

Opportunity to Socialise: Humans are social beings. Travelling with family and friends gives you the opportunity to create and share experiences. It is also an opportunity to meet and share new friendships with people who have same interests
