4. An Impromptu Trip
In simple words, this is what packing your bags right away means, literally. When a trip happens in a planned and organized manner, the traveler only thinks in one direction.

3. A Road Trip
This can be either in a car, a bus, a traveler van, or a bike. Road trips are like eating street food in Delhi. You go to eat one dish but you’re hardly aware that no one can have just one. Similarly, road trips give you an advantage of exploring multiple destinations on one single trip. Taking you through the rugged terrains and unexplored landscapes, hitting the road has so far been the best of all types of trips that a traveler can take.
2. A Solo Trip
While “need some me-time” might sound too cliched, solo trips have been on the rise and are the most preferred types of trips now days. Buying all the peace and quiet that one needs on a vacation, a solo trip is related more to finding a deeper connection with travel by traveling safe and on your own. After all, those who fly solo, end up with stronger wings!
1. A Do-Nothing-At-All Trip

And for those who think the struggle is real, this is the best of all types of trips to take wherein you can literally be in your pyjamas the whole day, cut yourself off from the virtual world, bask in the sun, play with your dog, paint the town red, read a book, or maybe, just stare at the wall. Interesting much?
