Different Types of Travel

Travel is the traveling of individuals between different distant geographical locations. Travel can be performed by car, bike, foot, plane, train, bus, boat or any other mode of transportation, with or without personal luggage, and is usually one way to get there or around the world. Some forms of travel include air travel, land travel, and boat travel.


Air travel is the general term used for any flight that lands at a destination and then takes off again. Business travel is a subset of travel, which involves only travel to and from work, and includes both scheduled and non-scheduled flights. Most people travel for business, because if a businessperson can’t travel to and from his office at his own expense, he needs to compensate someone else, and the person’s expense may not always be easy to calculate. Most business trips include some form of travel. Some people travel for romantic purposes, such as on honeymoon, but other people travel for business purposes. No matter what your reason for traveling, it usually involves a transfer of some sort from one place to another.

Luxury travel is travel that is considered extremely luxurious and includes all types of traveling that is considered to be outside the norm for the general population. This can include such things as flying to a very exotic location, staying in a five star hotel, taking a private helicopter to the top of the Statue of Liberty, or even going to the beach and surfing. A long-term slow trip is also considered a luxury travel trip. A long-term slow trip is a planned period of time when no other travelers are traveling along with you, or there is very little other travel in the area where you are planning to travel. Any type of long-term slow travel is usually done on very special occasions, such as vacations, weddings, or honeymoons.
