5 Traits to Look For in a Travel Companion

Some people like to travel alone but some love company. If you are a part of the latter, then this article is for you. 

The travel companion you take can make your journey the best or the worst of times. So if you plan to tag someone along, make sure to think of these things when looking for the best travel companion:

Street Smart

If you are someone who is not great in direction and navigation, it helps to be with a travel companion who has a great grasp of where to go. Come with someone who is street smart so you will not have a hard time finding the ins and outs of places. 

Outgoing and Spontaneous

It is better to keep the company of someone outgoing. He should always be ready and open to meet new people and discover new places. Part of what makes the trip even more memorable are the discoveries and adventures you will explore so make sure you are with someone in it for this, too. 


Whether you eat street food or dine in a fine restaurant, your travel companion must always be ready for it. He must also be open to sleeping in the outdoors or a hotel. Whatever the case is, whatever adventure you are on or whatever food you try, he must be adaptive and on for it. 

Similar Budget

Budget is a big factor in traveling. If your travel companion doesn’t have the same budget as you do, it’ll be hard to stay on the same page. Make sure you both have the same spending to keep the journey afloat. 


Travels don't always work as planned. Go with someone easy-going. Someone who is warm-headed and will go with the flow. Choose someone laidback and accepting of things even if they didn't turn out the way you both pictured it. Just charge it to experience. Those are the memories worth keeping.
