Group travel refers to travel with a group arranged by an outside company or organization or travel with a group of friends and family that you have organized yourself. Some groups are small, private and escorted, while others large. Group travel include groups that travel together like youth and student groups, sports teams, family reunions, affinity groups and clubs, special needs groups and church and religious groups as well as groups of like-minded travelers that travel in a group organized for a mode of travel, destination or activity for example a luxury ocean cruise to Alaska featuring Alaska cuisine, culture and inlet cove kayaking.
There are many benefits to group travel; it is cost effective due to shared expenses and group discounts, there is companionship and the opportunity to meet new people and many chances to socialize, there are opportunities for special group tour guides and service priorities, and it often makes planning travel easier and safer when traveling in numbers rather than when traveling alone.
