Let’s face it — travel has changed. A lot. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, international travel is completely different, almost to a point that it’s unrecognizable.

With travel restrictions by country, by citizenship, and by vaccination status…it can be difficult to keep up with all the new changes. (Visit TravelBans.org and Sherpa for the latest updates.)

But one thing that hasn’t changed is the benefit of travelling solo. Now more than ever, it’s the clear winner in terms of safety, security, comfort, and health.

The larger your travel group, the higher the risk of encountering unsafe situations. The smaller your group (like if it’s just you), the lower your risks. And who doesn’t want that?

So let’s break it down, and look at the 5 reasons why you should book Private Photo Tours now, rather than large group tours where a dozen ore more people travel together.

1. You’re in a group of one

Since you’re travelling solo (with a guide + driver), you avoid the sharing of spaces with other photographers. While it’s impossible to avoid people entirely, the less people you encounter on a daily basis, the safer your airspace is. There’s safety in small numbers.

2. You’re in private vehicles

In a solo tour scenario, you’ll be travelling in a private vehicle whenever possible. The car would be sanitized frequently, and the driver will be fully vaccinated too. In some cases, like flights or trains, it’s harder to arrange private spaces, but anything is possible.

3. You’ll always have your own hotel room

With Private Photo Tours, you’ll always be booked in a private room. Since it’s not a group tour, there are no roommate situations, and there are no added fees for a single supplement. It’s always private, and always your own space.

4. We are vaccinated, and so are you

In order to book a Private Photo Tour, you’d need to be fully vaccinated at least 14 days ahead of departure. And if booster shots are available in your area, get one of those too. We are fully vaccinated, and so are our fixers and drivers. As the situation changes, we will adapt to it, and so will everyone we work with.

5. Our partners and vendors are vetted for safety

When we pick our partners, we pay particular attention to their safety protocols, and only choose those who maintain high standards and adhere to strict sanitization procedures. You can depend on a safe environment with Private Photo Tours from start to finish.

 

Now compare this to a group travel situation, where you’re in a collection of 10 – 15 other photographers. With no ability to sequester yourself from others, you’ll always be in close proximity to people around you. When travelling to photography sites in a vehicle like a bus or minivan, everyone is packed in tightly. Where’s the social distancing?

Travel didn’t use to be scary, and it doesn’t have to be that way now. When you take the time to plan out a private tour, you can control just how much time you spend around others.

Hey, maybe there’s more than 5 reasons why you should book Private Photo Tours now? Especially if the Covid-19 pandemic drags out for many more years. Maybe private is the way to go for all your future photography travel.
