by Travel & Adventure54 comments

Most of us do our research with the help of good ol’ Google as we seek out the best travel tips and the best things to do for any destination. However, I understand that there are times when Google just won’t cut it and you rather want to gain real-time advice from a group of people online that you can actually converse with — for this, I highly suggest joining Facebook groups for travelers!

To date, there are millions of Facebook groups out there and it can be dizzying to pick out the ‘cream of the crop‘; but don’t fret, becaause with this list, I have gathered the best Facebook groups for travelers that will match whatever need or niche you’re looking for.

I have also made sure that these groups satisfy the following criteria:

  1. It is non-spammy.
  2. It has relevant, active, and engaged members.
  3. It is well-managed by moderators.

Without further ado, here are the best Facebook groups for travelers that you MUST join!

Ultimate Travel Group

CURRENT MEMBERS: 21,500+

The Ultimate Travel Group (UTG) is a group that I created after I saw the shortage of Facebook groups out there that generously shares opportunities for travelers as well as travel bloggers — may they be current or aspiring ones (and by opportunities, I mean it as it is: travel opportunities, travel giveaways, etc.)

Everyone is free to join and post questions at any time — I am also always available to answer and share the travel hacks and tips that I personally know of. So see you there!

    Thank you for sharing this list. Having a group is really helpful. I recently joined Blogging for new bloggers and I love this group.

    Thanks for the wonderful advice. I think it’s great how you are able to create some of those photos with only an iPhone. You have a wonderful eye for composition.

    I’ve been following your blog for the last month. I love your honesty in the content you write about the positive and negative aspects of solo travel and blogging. I really feel I can relate to it.
    I have been solo travelling for the past 3 years but have only just started to document it with a blog of my own. I’m at a transition phase in the way in which I travel and the way in which I work to travel as I am working towards creating my own travel business within the kitesurfing industry. Reading your blog and being able to relate to your content has inspired me to blog to document my travels and my development as I create my dream career.
    Thanks for the advice and the inspiration.
