1500+ of the Best Travel Related Hashtags for Instagram. Hand Selected. Categorized. Displayed by Volume, Alphabetical Order, or Category. A one-of-a-kind resource for travel bloggers, brands, and influencers. Brought to you FREE by Travel is Life.


As I build Travel is Life into a one-of-a-kind resource for travelers, I'm also focusing on building my Instagram following (@travelislifeorg) because I realize how powerful of a platform Instagram is for engaging with travelers. And like you, I've already read all the generic Instagram marketing guides online – including all the “pro tips” like putting your hashtags in the first comment and posting during peak usage time. And I'm assuming you've already read all that stuff too, so this article isn't about that.

Instead, I'm going to share something extremely valuable with you that I put a lot of time and energy into creating. It's The Ultimate List of Travel Related Hashtags for Instagram Marketing.

For the life of me, I could not find anything like this online, or any software to help me create it. So I had to build it myself, by hand, one hashtag at a time. If you're a travel blogger, own a travel company, or have a travel related brand, you're going to love this spreadsheet I created for you. Okay, well, technically I created it for me. But I'd have to be real selfish to keep something like this to myself… There's enough travel love on Instagram to go around for all of us!

About the list of travel hashtags

For this list of over 1500 travel hashtags, I focused on hashtags that are versatile enough to use on any travel photo, regardless of location. For example, you'll find the hashtag #explore but not #explorasheville. You'll find #travelmore but not #travelasia. And you'll find #wanderlusting but not #wanderingeurope.

The majority of the list can be used on any travel photo, but I've categorized select hashtags that are best used for Female Travelers, Male Travelers, Couples, Solo Travelers, Families, and photos with Kids or Babies. I've also included some popular branded travel hashtags as well as hashtags for specific days of the week like #traveltuesday and #wanderlustwednesday. There's a category for Food, Travel Blogging, Art, Backpackers, Budget Travel, Coffee, Travel Businesses, Fashion, Family Travel, Friends, Travel Info, GoPro Photos, Outdoors, Traveling with Pets, Religious Travel, and more.

Lastly, there's a category for Expired hashtags like #adventure2016 and #vacation2k15. I've included those so that you can get an idea of potential travel hashtags for the year “2017” (which there's a separate category for too).

How to use this list

The Ultimate List of Travel Related Hashtags was created as a shortcut for when you need to hashtag your travel photos but don't have time to do specific hashtag research for each individual photo.

The best way to use this list is to create your own “Bundles” of 20-25 hashtags that you can copy/paste onto a photo for quick posting. Typically I will hashtag a photo with my own branded hashtag, one or two location specific hashtags, and a few hashtags describing what's in the photo – placing only 6-8 hashtags in the actual photo description. Then for my first comment, I'll copy/paste one of my pre-made hashtag bundles. I keep my bundles saved in my Google Keep app but you could use whatever note taking app you like or even store them in an e-mail. Here's an example of one of my Instagram posts. Click the comments to see one of my hashtag bundles in action.

By now I hope you're starting to realize how powerful this list will be for your Instagram marketing. If not, here's a few examples of Top Hashtags for Instagram Travelers that you'll find on the full list.

As you know though, using the top hashtags with millions of uses may not be the best idea. You'll often get better exposure from mid-level hashtags with volume in the tens or hundreds of thousands (which you'll find on the list) because there's a better chance you'll get found.
