People have a lot of ideas about what group travel is and is not. Sadly, a lot of these assumptions are nothing more than myths. Luckily, we’re the experts in group travel at Goway Groups Only. So we’re here to bust some myths about group travel and share accurate and inspirational info about what a group vacation can be.

Common Myths About Group Travel

Groups are boring

This couldn’t be further from the truth! Our Groups Only Specialists pride themselves on tailoring some of the most unique and exciting itineraries to destinations around the world. These adventurous group vacations include sky diving in Dubai, swimming with sharks off the coast of South Africa, and cruising through the Antarctic Peninsula. There is no cookie cutter group vacation with Groups Only. Our team sends hundreds of groups each year to destinations all around the world, and every single trip is tailored to the exciting interests of that specific group. These include photography enthusiasts taking pictures of the Northern Lights in Norway, a women’s only retreat in Bali, and a celebratory birthday trip in Bora Bora. I don’t know about you, but snorkeling through the colorful underwater world of Bora Bora hardly seems boring! We want to make sure your group captures those Instagrammable moments.

Groups are always too big

All you need is 10 adults to book your very own Groups Only vacation. Our group sizes start with 10 people and grow to whatever size you need for your specific group requirements. So whether you’re looking to trace your ancestry in Ireland as a part of a multi-generational family or you’re looking to join a group of friends to see the cherry blossoms in spring in Japan, no group is too big, too small, or too unique.

Groups are too expensive

Group vacations are no more expensive than any other vacation. We’ve been in business for over 50 years, and in that time, we’ve grown year-after-year and have created some fantastic relationships with partners in over 115 destinations worldwide. These strong relationships ensure that not only are we able to offer fantastic value to our clients, but also the best customer experience and price as well!

Groups are too much of a financial risk

A $1,000 deposit is all that is required to book your group space. And this is regardless of whether your group includes 10 or 80 people traveling! We also provide you with the marketing and support tools to fill your group. If you end up having an issue selling your group, we’ll even allow a one-time transfer of your deposit to a new date and destination.

Groups have no flexibility and cram too many things onto one itinerary

All of our Groups Only itineraries are designed around your specific needs and desires. We want you to have the best travel experience, so there is nothing on your group itinerary that you and your fellow travelers don’t want there. We customize all of our packages to ensure that you have the most interactive and immersive experience in the destination that you are visiting. These can include cooking classes with a local chef in Varanasi, learning to play the didgeridoo in Australia, and even stargazing in the Galapagos Islands. The itinerary is all about you and is flexible, since it’s 100% tailor-made.

Groups are too difficult to plan

With our Groups Only Specialists planning your perfect itinerary, our group management tool keeping you organized, and our Account Managers offering coaching sessions on marketing, you aren’t alone when planning your group vacation. While traveling, you’ll have the assistance of our local operators, our 24/7 worldwide customer service, and, of course, your Groups Specialist, who is with you every step of the journey to ensure your group’s success and to make sure you make travel memories that will last a lifetime.
