Travel Tips

Facebook groups travellers should know about

We all know travelling isn’t always the easiest thing and it often brings out a lot of questions. When to go? Where to go? Is it safe? What’s not to be missed? etc. So, you might think googling or reading travel books is the best way to do research, and even though it’s still a good idea to do some googling before a trip, I would recommend you get on board with some social media research. After all, word of mouth is the most trust worthy marketing, and in 2016 that word of mouth can be found right at your finger tips.

Any traveller will tell you that when you travel – you meet other people who travel. These people are your best resource for travel tips, inspiration, and recommendations. And a lot of them are on Facebook. So, here are a bunch of great travel groups on Facebook – open to any and all travellers.

    Completely agree that getting into some of the threads is helpful to sort out specific itinerary issues. Which are your favorites to use?

      My two favorite once are Girls VS Globe and A Broken Backpack Community, it’s my go-to place with any questions regarding travel and blogging! Always get quick answers and everyone’s really helpful, supportive, and positive!

    What a great list! I find traveling less stressful when I have the chance to research and see how others managed the adventure first πŸ™‚ Facebook Groups and Communities always are my go-to for help!

    This is actually super handy, especially since travel can be so subjective, it’s nice to connect people to other people and their experiences, rather than one experience in the form of a review or an article. Thanks! πŸ™‚

      So true, and it’s great to get some first-hand experience from other travellers!

    I absolutely looooove facebook interest groups. I didn’t know about them before, but once I was schooled on them I think they are so nice. It’s really cool to see so many people who love the same thing as you and can share great info. Speaking of that, thanks for sharing these pages because I’m heading out to Canada next month and this will certainly come in handy!
