2019 Travel Selling Guide

Where do you get travel inspiration?

Instagram continues to be the hub for anything travel related. We decided to put together a guide that can help you find your niche in the travel industry. 

Solo Traveling

Solo traveling is on the rise. Solo traveling is much more than the final destination, in some ways it is meant to claim freedom from ordinary and prove to ourselves that we are capable of tackling traveling alone.

Travel is the best education that one can have. It teaches us vital communication skills, survival skills, and most importantly enriches our lives with different cultures from our own. 

Germany is leading the way with 80% of German respondents say they will go it alone, followed by 69% of UK respondents and 67% of Canadians.

  • Iceland – a destination where female-solo travelers won’t find it hard to make new friends as they explore the natural beauty of Iceland 
  • Switzerland – is highly ranked on the list of the safest and most dangerous countries
  • Australia – besides surfing and other deadly creatures, Australia is a relatively safe place to visit 
  • Canada – tourist areas are safe, I would recommend watching out for bears 
  • Amsterdam – ranked 6th on safe cities index
