What Is Travel?

Travel is the general movement of humans between different distant geographical regions. Travel can be performed by feet, car, bike, plane, train, bus or boat, with luggage or no luggage, and is either one way to another place or around the world. Traveling for business or pleasure can also involve transferring from one place to another, but travel can take many forms and can last for a few days or a month or longer. The modern trend in travel is to pack light with minimal personal possessions in order to save money on accommodation costs. There are three types of travel, leisure travel, business travel, and tourism travel.


Leisure travel refers to traveling for fun or leisure, and is usually associated with outdoor activities such as sports and hobbies, tours, cruises and nightlife. Many modern hotels offer a variety of travel amenities such as travel desks, restaurants, bars, and lounges. Leisure travelers usually explore different countries and cultures, go on adventurous expeditions, visit art galleries and museums, go on dance lessons, take a day trip to the mountains, enjoy a swimming competition, and so on. Business travelers on the other hand go to fulfill a need for knowledge or employment, visit other countries for business, or attend seminars, conferences, training sessions, or treasure hunts. They may also undertake extreme adventures like bungee jumping, skydiving, white water rafting, and climbing. Tourism is more often associated with adventure sports like mountain climbing, rock climbing, and scuba diving.

Travel agents can help you plan your trip and make it convenient for you by making you aware of various travel packages and destination options and arrange travel and hotel accommodations according to your preference. A professional agent will also help you organize your itinerary, pick up and drop off points, arrange for a driver to pick you up when you arrive at the destination, and even help arrange for local travel and entertainment facilities in your chosen destination. For instance, if you are traveling to India for the first time, a travel agent can help you get accommodation in New Delhi hotels that are close to key points of interest in India such as the Red Fort, India Gate, Jama Masjid, and India Gate.
