5 ways to plan your next trip using Instagram
Let’s face it, we spent most of our time on social media. Social apps such as Instagram make you laugh, cry, discover new trends, products, and so much more but did you know you could use it to help plan your next trip? Instagram provides direct access to people that inhabit places you may be planning to visit. I answer tons of questions on social everyday. I am always excited to see my followers exploring a new destination off their bucket list.

Here are 5 Ways you can use Instagram to Plan Your Next Trip:
Everyone uses them and they’re perfect for learning about a new place, bucket list research, festivals, restaurants, hotels so let the hashtags #fly!
Helps you find the hot spots, restaurants, scenic views from photographs people post. It’s almost like virtually checking out the location before venturing there.
3. Celebrity comments:
Celebs are famous for not tagging their location but don’t worry, Instagrammers will spill the beans in the comments section. 💅🏾 Also, look out for locals who comment under celeb posts’ as they often offer great recommendations too.
4. Ask your Instagram family for help:
Post about your upcoming trip. DM (direct message) someone you follow or even a stranger who’s been there. I get questions via DM, my comments all the time. Never be afraid to ask someone a question, it’s called social media for a reason.
5. Save Posts:
The new save feature allows you to save posts you like. Save all the photo postings you like about destinations you are planning to visit. It definitely comes in handy! Here’s a shot of saved posted.
Bonus : Follow tour companies and destination pages it’s a good way to find local deals
The next time you open your Instagram app, start planning your #travel.
