The Different Types of Traveling
Travel is the movement of humans between different, remote geographical locations. Travel can take place by feet, horseback, car, plane, train, bus, boat or any other means and is one way to travel around the world or across the globe. It could also be one way, meaning one journey to another destination and back or it could be round trip, meaning one country visited and one return journey. There are two types of travel: land and sea. Sea travel is mainly undertaken for business, particularly for international business, but also for other purposes such as sightseeing and in some cases for fun such as hiking.
Land travel on the other hand mainly takes place for domestic travel, usually for trips within a country’s borders, between cities or within a single country. A traveler may choose from either road and rail travel or air travel for short-term lodging and tourism. Many tourists prefer air travel for convenience because flying could take up to half an hour, and the latter is much faster and more comfortable. However, air travel has become somewhat slower because of the increased competition in the airline industry and there are more flight delays now than before.
Short-term lodging and tourism are the fastest growing segment of the tourism industry today. The increasing number of travelers, both domestic and international, has resulted in the demand for more hotels, motels, inns, hostels, holiday homes, campsites, and other accommodations. Travelers to the US are especially advised to carry health insurance, because medical emergencies are more frequent than in other parts of the world, and the quality of the hospitals is also far better. Furthermore, travelers are advised to purchase traveler’s checks blank with their credit cards from banks that provide good financial services.
