Hostelling International Promotes Group Travel Opportunities

15, June 2015: Hostelling International, the only global network of Youth Hostel Associations, is promoting a huge range of destinations aimed at group travel in 2015. Offering more than 4,000 hostels throughout the world, the organisation’s website dedicated to groups features 250 hostels specifically suitable for group travel — including school trips, families and corporate team building trips.

A Range of Destinations

For organisers of school trips and other group travel, getting the balance right, in terms of selecting destinations that are interesting, educational, fun and suitable for specific ages, is crucial. Hostelling International’s range of hostels suitable for group accommodation are situated in a diverse range of locations all over the world. Each one provides the extensive facilities required to make group travel successful and, on their website dedicated to groups, the organisation promotes not only the accommodation, but also a selection of inspiring ideas to create the perfect itinerary.

International Inspiration

Some ideas the team suggest include taking a group to Berlin to immerse in the popular street art culture. Participants can attend a graffiti workshop and street art tour, with the opportunity to not only explore the city’s eclectic underground scene, but also become a part of it themselves.

Another exciting destination recommended by the team is Seattle, in the USA. Young musicians can be inspired by the thriving music scene in Seattle — renowned as the birthplace of “grunge” music. Groups can visit the Rock and Roll Museum, which is home to a number of high profile exhibitions including the Experience Music Project.

While these are just two examples, the easy to navigate Hostelling International groups website offers a wealth of other suggestions. It is not only an invaluable source of inspiration for organisers of group travel, it also provides the details of every hostel in the network specifically suitable for those needing group accommodation. All the hostels meet the stringent assured standards requirements and offer safe, friendly accommodation at affordable prices.
