Why You Should Host a Group Trip with Best In Travel

Written by Rob Embury - Best In Travel

Have you ever dreamed of getting paid to travel and create content? Hosting a group trip could be the perfect way to do just that, while also enjoying a range of benefits that go beyond the thrill of exploration. Best In Travel specialises in small group travel. We organise dream trips to bucket-list destinations around the world hosted by content creators, influencers, digital nomads and more. As an established travel brand, we also offer a bunch of other perks to joining our group trip host community, like opportunities for tourism board, hotel and brand collaborations.

Scroll down and read on to find out why you should consider hosting a group trip, and why you should absolutely consider partnering with Best In Travel to do it. Let’s go!

1. Travel for Free

Want to explore the world without breaking the bank, or even for FREE? Sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t.

One of the most enticing perks of hosting a group trip is the opportunity to travel for free. During the planning stage, we cost our trips out based on the host (or co-hosts) participating for free. At a minimum, this means accommodation and activities. Anything that isn’t included as part of the trip can be built in to your host profit margin to make sure all of your expenses are covered including flights, meals etc.

2. Create an Additional Source of Income

Above and beyond the perk of free travel, hosting a group trip can provide you with an excellent additional stream of income, allowing you to turn your passion into a profitable venture while sharing your love for travel with others.

How much money you make from a trip is up to you! We work with our Best In Travel trip hosts to determine what margin they should add on to their trip to make it profitable and worthwhile for them, whilst also providing great value to potential guests.

3. Create a Stronger Bond with Your Audience

If you’re a travel blogger, influencer, or content creator, hosting group trips can strengthen your relationship with your audience. By personally leading trips, you demonstrate authenticity and credibility, enhancing your followers’ trust in your recommendations and experiences.

4. Meet Like-Minded Travelers, Forge New Relationships

Leading a group trip allows you to connect with like-minded travelers who share your enthusiasm for exploration. You’ll have the chance to forge new friendships and create lasting memories with fellow adventurers who appreciate the joys of discovering new places together.

5. Build Your Brand

Hosting group trips is an excellent way to build and promote your personal or business brand. It positions you as an authority in your niche and allows you to showcase your expertise and passion for travel. As you lead more trips and receive positive feedback, your brand visibility and reputation can grow significantly.

Partnering with Best In Travel gives you the opportunity to reach our audience as well, which includes approximately 1.7 million people around the world, all of whom follow us because they LOVE travel!

This type of content is highly valuable for promoting your brand as a trip host, and shows your audience why they absolutely need to join your next trip.
