With hundreds of thousands of people heading overseas to travel each year, there are many different types of traveller to be found. Here are just a few. Do you recognise yourself in one of these?
The first-time traveller
These types of travellers are yet to experience the joys of exploring the world. Usually just out of school or college, they fancy an adventure into the unknown, perhaps wanting to broaden their minds before the start of their next chapter. During their first trip abroad, they will be bitten by the ‘travel bug’ and will most likely head out again to explore a new country within a year of their return.

The solo traveller
The solo traveller has the confidence to go wherever they like with nothing to hold them back. Usually pretty experienced with travel, they will go wherever the world takes them, often visiting multiple countries on each trip. Despite setting off on their own, they will always meet a group of like-minded people that will become friends for life due to their mutual love of travelling.

The thrill seeker
This traveller is all about adventure. Whether it’s ziplining across canyons or scuba diving in tropical waters, they are always up for doing something a little wild. No matter where they are, they’ll always try to seek out the most adventurous activities. They are often the best people to travel with if you want to be pushed out your comfort zone as you never know what crazy activity you’ll end up doing!

The foodies are all about getting involved in the local culture and trying new foods. They will go wherever people recommend and frequent the local street food stands and restaurants on the lookout for local delicacies. With so many flavours and ingredients available around the world, there is no end to these traveller’s search for the most delicious dishes of each country.

This traveller loves organisation and will know exactly where they are going and when. Every detail is planned to perfection in order to maximise their time abroad and you won’t find them anywhere that they didn’t plan to go! They will have pre-planned their accommodation and researched the best places to go in each country, meaning if you travel with a ‘planner’, you’re guaranteed to have a stress-free experience.

Armed with the latest tech, these travellers are always on the lookout for the perfect picture. Most likely to be found off the beaten track around the more hidden natural wonders, their photos will be pieces of art that truly highlight the magic of travelling.
