The Benefits of Group Travel

Travel is one of the most exciting things one can do in their life. The skills gained from the experience of travelling cannot be underestimated. Whether you are travelling in a group or individually, the experiences gained benefit you as a person for life.

There is the pre-holiday excitement – the planning, the booking of accommodation and deciding on a to-do list of activities. However, the benefits of travelling in a group stretch further than this excitement. When you travel in a group you learn skills that will benefit you for the rest of your life.

There are huge psychological benefits to travel. The freedom of being away from your daily routine allows your mind the opportunity to relax and de-stress, hence why travel is known as a great method of calming the mind.
When you are out of your comfort zone (with unfamiliar faces and places) you are forced to learn the important skills of Self-Confidence and Communication. It pushes you to learn how to manage your finances, to learn new cultures and to try new things. Learning. It is impossible to return from a holiday and not have learnt anything. Shared experiences foster teamwork and friendship, such as cooking and having meals together.


Leisure Options is a leader in their field, recognising the benefits of travel and the belief that travel should be accessible for everyone. With the introduction of the NDIS, this allows the traveller to utilise a portion of their plan funding to go on holiday. We love hearing from our travellers about the amazing experiences that they have had while on holiday and the skills they have made. Travel with Leisure Options gives those with a disability the opportunity to experience the world and the benefits of group travel that we all enjoy.
