The planner in me has been going crazy. As I mentioned earlier, my travel plans are winding up instead of down. I had plans to go on a road trip to Florida as an end of the summer vacation, but that fell through. BUT my brother came through with an even better plan and now, next week, I’ll be on my way to Mexico for vacation. I’ve been researching everything from “How to Pack a Carry-On Suitcase like a Pro” to Carry-On Essentials to How to Create a Travel First Aid Kit. After researching the trends of travel hashtags on Instagram, I’ve came up with some tips for using travel related hashtags and the best ones to use for engagement and likes, so I’m sharing them below.
I am SUPER excited. I’ve never been to Mexico and I’ve been wanting to visit Cabo for a while now, so I know this vacation will be great. Not to mention I haven’t been on a real vacation in at least 3 years, so this trip is LONG overdue. In preparation for my trip I’ve been hitting the gym at least 3 days a week or walking around the lake near my house, which ends up being 2 – 3.5 miles a day. I FINALLY got a Fitbit, so if you have one too, we should be friends. If you’re interested, leave me a comment below and we can link up.
Hashtags will produce more likes and engagement, but the key is to not use more than 30.
Use a hashtag for your location.
Research location specific hashtags to where you will be traveling.
Here’s the ones I plane on using for my upcoming vacation:
#mexico #viveMexico #MexicoLindo #MexicoLindoyquerido #mexicomagico #IloveMexico #ExploreMexico #walkingMexico #Mexico_maravilloso #mexicolors #loves_Mexico #captura_mexico #visitMexico
Use Niched Travel Hashtags created by companies or bloggers.
Using these hashtags gives you an opportunity to be featured to a larger audience if your image is re-posted.
Use hashtags to describe travel
Have fun and create your own hashtag.
Make sure you check to see if your hashtag is already being used. One of the ones I created was being used already, so I had to edit mine, so it was unique to me.
Here’s the top hashtags I’ve found ranging from over 1 to 58 million posts (to-date).
#holiday #instago #wanderlust #trip #instatravel #travelgram #traveling #traveling #travelingram #neverstopexploring #igtravel #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #worldcaptures #getaway #travelbug #landscapelovers #travelpics #lonelyplanet #bestvacations
I also plan to use these:
#ilovetravel #traveldiary #travelnoire #doyoutravel
I also found hashtags for women who travel.
So have you used or created an personalized hashtags for your travel photos?
