In depth explanation of examples
This page is going to talk more about the different benefits of having a travel companion and, hopefully, help you make a decision on whether or not this is something that could meet your needs.
The first benefit of having a travel companion is it’s safer and less stressful. It’s less stressful because you won’t have to worry about your safety and whether or not you’ll be robbed or something similar. Having another person with you can be great because you can watch each other’s backs and bags when using the bathroom or something like that. It will also deter people trying to rob or harm you because two people is a harder target than just one.
The next benefit is that it’s more fun. Not only will you not have to worry about loneliness, but you also will be able to share in laughs and just enjoy the sights and attractions together.
Since you’ll be hiring a travel companion, you’ll probably have to foot the bill yourself, but many places have cheaper rates when it’s more than one person. This is especially true of tourist destinations.
Another benefit is that it’s more convenient. Not only will you have someone to help you carry your bags, but you’ll also have someone who can help you carry anything you buy back to your hotel or room.
This next reason has to do with the memories you make while on your trip. Being able to have someone take pictures of you by the sights will make for better pictures. You will also be able to have their pictures as backup in case you lose yours. You’ll look back on these pictures and remember the great times you had with your travel companion.
Take Care of You
This one is especially helpful if you get a 24-hour bug or even have a little too much to drink. Your travel companion can help nurse you back to health and make sure no one takes advantage of you. They can also help make sure you get back to your hotel or room so you can sleep it off.
Having a travel companion can help you get motivated to continue sightseeing or continue walking if your legs get tired. They will help motivate you and make sure that you get to see everything that you wanted to because they kept you going when you wanted to give up.
Besides the reasons listed above, there are many other random reasons why it’s good to have a travel companion. A few of these reasons include: having someone to talk with you about your day and feelings, someone who can give you an honest opinion on something you are looking to buy, and someone who can keep you level-headed when you’re feeling overwhelmed.
