Advantages of Travelling With Companion

Posted on 06 September 2018 by admin (0)

To travel alone or with companion? A question that runs through a lot of travellers’ minds, the answer to which is always divided. This is because humans are different and each to his own character, personality, ways, etc. for instance, a loner is bound to think travelling solo is the better idea while a more social, outgoing, and outspoken person would most likely enjoy travelling with friends.

I am of the believe that travelling with companion beats travelling solo and below are the various reasons why I would rather travel with someone by my side rather than nobody.

  1. Convenience: Making the decision to travel with a friend or relative will definitely prove to be convenient for the both of you. You get to do some things more freely without panicking as you are certain you have someone or people who got your back. For example, you could go take a leak or a dump deep in the forest without being worried about someone making away with your car or/and valuables. Carrying of things is also made easier likewise taking pictures as you have someone to hand over your phone to rather than going to disturb the peace of total strangers.
  2. It is Cheaper: Travelling with companion is way lot cheaper than deciding to travel solo. For instance, you and your companion could share gas money, rent the same hotel room and split the bills in half, you could order breakfast and dinner and share payments equally. Things that would have otherwise been paid for in full if you were alone. It is however important to travel with someone who has the same mind set when it comes to expenses as you.
  3. Liveliness All the Way: Going on a journey or trip with a companion can and will drastically reduce the moments of boredom you would have otherwise experienced had you travelled solo. While you might be initially satisfied with listening to your car stereo, that feeling will fade and you would be miles away from home, bored, and wishing you had brought someone along.
  4. A More Enjoyable Travel Experience: Experiences are only as good as what we attach them to and who we experienced them with. Being in a strange land with your best friend has the potential to be more fun provided he/she is not a killjoy. You might get to try new things, visit new places, and have an overall better travel experience than you would have if you had gone alone.
  5. Safety: Borrowing from what I said in the first point, you could go take a leak or dump comfortably while travelling with a companion. Asides this, there is a sense of calmness that one feels when he is not alone. You get the feeling that nothing bad could happen as you have your friend(s) or/and relative(s) in the back seat.


As said earlier, each individual has his own beliefs as long as the topic of travelling solo or with companion is concerned. If you are however torn as to which is the better option, read the reasons given above and see why travelling with companion is absolutely better than going it alone.
