Read on and find out which of these 7 types of travelers we have listed you happen to be. Which one are you? How about your friends? Let us know in a comment!

Solo Traveler
The world is your oyster, and you prefer to see and explore it alone. But rather than having an “all by my lonesome self” outlook, you’re more of an “I appreciate and enjoy things more when I’m alone” kind of person. You feel that traveling is something special that should be treated as a treasured personal experience because it really molds and affects you in a profound way. On the other hand, it could also be just that your friends always end up flaking on you at the last minute, but doesn’t the first definition sound so much better?

Couple Travelers
There’s nothing more romantic than exploring the world with someone special, and that’s the kind of travel you enjoy. You prefer to share the experience with your partner and savor your moments together to relive in the future. Your trips are always romantic gestures, and sometimes you get lost in each other’s eyes rather than wherever you’re having your trip.


The road is long and the journey is tough. All you have are the clothes on your back and whatever things you can fit in your oversized backpack. They say it’s the best way to travel and you agree. From pension houses to seemingly strange dormitories, you risk it all for an authentic experience. There’s nothing that gives you a rush more than exploring the unknown.

Business Traveler
You do get to travel, yes, but only for business, so you have next to no time to see the sights. When you do have free time, though, it’s an amazing feeling. You make use of it by strolling around nearby and appreciating what you can. Although you might not have enough time to explore to the fullest, you still get to say you’re well-traveled: the ultimate bragging rights.

Pack Traveler
The best things in life come in threes, and the best way to travel is with friends. You prefer to be part of a group when traveling because you find it boring if you do it alone. You also feel safer with your friends around you while getting to share experiences with them that will deepen your bond. The infinite selfies, group shots, and jump shots you take are just some of the memories you’ll take home from the trip.

Budget Traveler

Your wanderlust is real. The only problem is that you have limited funds. Nevertheless, you don’t let your tight budget get you down because you are a smart traveler with meticulous plans designed to maximize your money for the best possible trip. There may be times when the accommodations or transportation you booked are worse than what you expected, but you’ve learned to how to pick the right deals with time and you’re always ready try something new.

Luxury Traveler
For you, money is no object and you welcome travel with open arms. You stay at the best hotels and go to the best places. As they say, the best way to travel is first class. You have an appreciation for the finer things in life and although you still try to experience everything from a local’s perspective, you are glad to know that you have a suite to sleep in at the end of the day.
