2012 Religious Travel Planning Guide
The concept of religious group travel covers many bases. While we often associate faith-based trips with spiritual retreats or pilgrimages to sacred sites, sometimes it’s smart to offer a getaway that focuses on relaxation, recreation or casual sightseeing. Much of the value of religious group travel, it’s worth noting, revolves around bonding with those who share similar beliefs. How about a whitewater rafting trip to West Virginia or a Caribbean cruise?
Whether you’re thinking about planning your first church trip, or seeking new ideas for your hundredth, you will uncover valuable information within the contents of the Religious Travel Planning Guide. Insightful articles on choosing tour operators, hotels & meals, trip planning timelines, the value of travel insurance, planning retreats, and more – we make planning a faith-based journey easy!
