Best Travel Hashtags for Instagram

Ever wonder what are the best travel hashtags to use on Instagram while traveling on vacation? Which hashtags will produce the most likes and organic followers? I thought I had this all dialed in, but around the new year my likes plummeted. No bueno! So I took a break from adding pointless and random hashtags and decided to come up with a new plan. Guess what? Yep, my Instagram likes and followers are steady on the rise again!

Travel-blog-raphy 101: The use of travel hashtags

Do not use hashtags in your description. I repeat: DO NOT use hashtags in your descriptions. The life of the tag is only a few minutes if not seconds. By simply cutting and pasting these travel hashtags into the section of your Instagram comments, you increase your chances of more likes from organic Instagram followers and not bots. You will also gain  followers genuinely interested in your content if you are consistent.

Rules: The 10 Commandments of Instagram

As I mentioned, from experience, these have proven to be the best travel hashtags for Instagram. However, do not “fib” and include say, #luxurytravel, if your photo does not capture luxury travel. If a hashtag does not fit, do not use it! You know who you are. Instagram will allow you to have 29 hashtags, so I’ve compiled the best of the best.

Katja Presnal, Editor-in-Chief of Skimbaco Lifestyle, and host of the weekly #InstagramTravelThursday campaign, touched based on this in a great articled titled: Be an Instgrammer with Integrity. Learn it. Live it. Love it.

You do not need to over-use hashtags. Three is OK, one hashtag is fantastic. But this post was written for those looking to fish for likes and that’s OK. So I’ve decided to help you by collection all the ones you need in one swoop.

RULES: How to Instagram Food

And remember those old faithfuls? The #instagood #instamood #instadaily #bestoftheday #iphoneonly #nofilter #igdaily #instalove #igaddict #webstagram #instagramhub #follow #igers #picoftheday #iphonesia #photooftheday hashtags that made really beautiful Instagrams look desperate with graffitied hashtags? (Please, I’ve done tried it also!) Well you can forget about them because our lovely friends at Instagram has finally flagged them. Yep, one or two bots will slip by and like your photos or follow you, but that’s it. I’m actually really happy Instagram took action on this. 

How are you using travel hashtags? Which travel hashtag works the best for you? Make sure to leave your Instagram URL in the comments!

Another fantastic Travel-blog-raphy Instagram Tip is breathe new life into old IG’s. Sunday nights are a great time to scroll through some old travel Instagram photos and add a few hashtags. I’ve noticed an influx in activity during this time and some old IG’s that original went unnoticed, have instantly become resuscitated.
