Searching for the Right Travel Hashtags
Looking for the right hashtags to add to your travel posts on Instagram, or even on Facebook or your blog can help others find your entry. This can also help boost views, and get more people commenting on your photos and entries. In addition, travel hashtags can also help you find other like-minded instagrammers who love travelling as much as you do.
If this is the case, what are the evergreen hashtags that you can most likely use for your posts? Read on to find out.
Unique Travel Hashtags that are not Overused
While there are the common and conventional hashtags such as #travel or #holiday or #vacation, they are not really the case. Due to the large number of uses for these hashtags, your entry would be easily buried by other new snapshots by fellow travellers. Instead, consider these hashtags which are related to the theme and love for travelling but not overused:
One key trick is to choose your travel hashtags based on your personal travel philoshopy such that it is intrinsically you. Another key point is to use your hashtags consistently so that your followers will be able to see your photos (this is most evident when you have posted a large collection of photos over time). Some possible examples:
Hashtag Your Locations
One key idea also is to hashtag your locations. It could be both the country as well as the city that you are exploring. For example, I am currently exploring Norway and I am in the city of Kirkenes. I would use these hashtags: #norway #kirkenes.
More often than not, I would recieve not only likes by the locals but sometimes also from the businesses in the city. Another option could be a variation such as #instanorway #ignorway.
Associated with Brand-related Travel Hashtags
Many city and country tourism boards and offices have their unique hashtags, and it is often a smart thing to include them in as well. Travel magazines and media also have their own branded hashtags which would help with your outreach.
For example, the best IG hashtags for Oslo for tourism would be the following:
So, if you are not using the hashtags well, you might want to consider using appropriate hashtags in the future. Remember to use between 7 to 25 hashtags as this range seems to generate the best views. Enjoy!
