A list of over 250 of the Best Travel Instagram Hashtags

Hashtags! Right now in 2019 there is a big debate about whether hashtags are still useful to authentically grow your Instagram account. There is so much speculation and misinformation out there when it comes to using hashtags. From a personal viewpoint my engagement only increases when I use hashtags, particularly travel hashtags. I still haven’t figured out the magic formula as to why some hashtags perform better than others. Some days I might only get 70 views from hashtags and that seems pretty low but in my opinion it is 70 more eyes on my account than before. If something can only help your account then why not?

Other times hashtags work really well for me and I can get up to 10,000 views on a post. I find that alot of these posts are location dependent (popular locations are bound to get more views), so it is important to choose your location hashtags wisely.

How do I find the best travel hashtags for Instagram?

With so much choice out there I wanted to give you a break down of the best travel hashtags to use for Instagram. I am skipping the most popular hashtags like #dametraveler and #flashesofdelight because let’s face it, they are oversaturated. Sure you can use popular hashtags like this with over 4.6 million posts and you will get some quick likes. However most of these likes will be fake/bot likes and you will likely become the target of some annoying follow/unfollow activity.

What is follow/unfollow?

This is where those rule breaking Instagrammers use automation to follow accounts that they think will follow them back. If you don’t follow back, and even the majority of the time if you do, they will unfollow you anyway. It’s nothing personal so don’t see it as a reflection of your account. Also please don’t fall into the trap of downloading one of those apps to see who unfollows you daily just so that you can unfollow them back. Big waste of time! If you have that much time on your hands please spend it engaging with those who genuinely want to follow you. You will see a far greater return.

The importance of Hashtag research

The most important thing when it comes to hashtags is RESEARCH! Are you using a hashtag that is too popular, like above, meaning that not only will you potentially attract bots but your photograph will disappear down the Instagram feed in mere seconds. Your gorgeous finely edited photo and thoughtful caption will only have miliseconds in the spotlight? No thank you!

Is the hashtag that you are going to use banned? Overuse of hashtags such as #valentinesday or #happythanksgiving led to them being considered spam and banned. But how can you know this? RESEARCH! If you want to use a hashtag but you aren’t sure if it is banned simply put it in the search bar in Instagram. Only a few images will show up and at the bottom of the page you will see the notification “Recent posts from # valentinesday are currently hidden because the community has reported some content that may not meet Instagram’s community guidelines.”

It might be dreamy and romantic but please don’t use #valentinesday guys!

I also research my hashtags before each use because I want to make sure that I am happy to be associated with that hashtag. If there is content under a hashtag that goes against my morals or is not something that I would personally stand by then I don’t use it. I also want to make sure that the hashtags I use are active. What is the point in posting something under an inactive hashtag. All you will hear is crickets!

Crickets? No Thank you!

However you also don’t want it to be too active because again that post that you took time and effort over will be buried. Hint! If you scroll down 20 rows and you still find content posted in the last few seconds that hashtag is too active. The general rule of thumb for smaller accounts wanting to be seen is to target hashtags with about 20k-100k posts, making sure that the hashtag is still active.

What are the best hashtags to use?

The best hashtags to use are always ones suitable to your niche. Using specific and relevant hashtags helps you connect with people that are looking for exactly the content that you are posting. Community hashtags like #teamkaptainkenny or location specific hashtags always work best. My niche is female travel and the good news is that I have done all the research for you to bring you a full guide on the absolute best hashtags to use for almost all types of travel accounts.

Mix up your hashtags to avoid “Spammy” behaviour.

I have taken the time to research hundreds of travel hashtags myself, constantly adding them to a grouped list and I want to share them with you! I have decided to share my full list of travel hashtags so that you can easily add them to your posts. Please bear in mind you have to mix up your hashtags daily. Just because I have done a lot of the groundwork here for you DOES NOT mean that you can just copy and paste that set of hashtags into your posts.

Instagram will see this as SPAM guys and therefore will show your post to less people. The aim of the game here is growth so please mix up those hashtags with every post.

Please like my photo #likeforlike #followforfollow…..sounds desperate right?

 It’s also a good idea to avoid gimmicky hashtags such as #likeforlike,#followforfollow, and hashtags that have been used over a million times. While these hashtags might get you a few extra likes, they aren’t going to help you grow a highly engaged, targeted following which, is the aim of the game guys!

313,000,000 tags!!!

Before deciding on what hashtags you use it is important to also consider two things. The first is the number of followers you have and the second is your engagement rate.

Follower count

How many followers do you have? The answer will indicate what size hashtags you can successfully compete with.

  • 0 – 20,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 10,000 tags
  • 20,000 – 40,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 50,000 tags
  • 50,000 – 100,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 100,000 tags
  • 100,000 – 300,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 300,000 tags
  • 300,000 + – Go mad!!

Follower number means nothing if you have zero engagement.

Engagement Rate

You must also consider your engagement rate before deciding on what hashtags you can compete with. You may have 50,000 followers but if your engagement is zero than it will be impossible for you to show up in 100,000 hashtag category.

That is because appearing in the top nine of hashtags depends not only on how many people like your post but HOW FAST they do so. So it is important to evaluate your engagement before deciding what hashtags to compete for.

Use relevant hashtags. I about not going to tag #beachfordaze when I am blatantly at a castle

Using relevant travel hashtags is more important than ever.

In the past year Instagram launched the ability to follow hashtags. Instead of someone having to manually search for a hashtag they are interested in and then scroll through an endless feed to potentially land on your content, your posts can now show up automatically in the feeds of thousands of potential new followers.

One of my favourite Hashtags to follow

While the Instagram algorithim has always favoured relevant hashtags it is now more important than ever to use hashtags that make sense for your post.

Instagram users now have the ability to click “Don’t Show for This Hashtag” option to mark the content not interesting or not relevant and this could have huge consequences for your account. If you are not posting relevant content for that hashtag or something those following that hashtag want to see there is a high likelihood that they will click on the “Don’t Show for This Hashtag” option. If this happens too often it will red flag your account to Instagram and this is not good.

Community Hashtags are great to use.

Community hashtags are Instagram hashtags that connect like-minded users around a specific subject. They’re a great way to connect with others, improve the searchability of your posts, gain followers, and grow your own community. My favourite is Helene in Between‘s #travelinbetween.

Do I use all thirty Hashtags?

There is no right or wrong answer to this. I’ve read so many blog posts on what is the correct amount of hashtags to use on each post but at the end of the day you have to do what is right for you and what you feel comfortable with. In my opinion if you are given thirty chances to be found then I am going to take all thirty of those chances.

I am a firm believer in taking every chance that you are given

However if you don’t feel comfortable using that number you can always use less. It is totally ok to experiment with the amount of hashtags you use on each post until you find your hashtag sweet spot.

The most important thing to keep in mind is that you’re being intentional with your hashtag selection and you’re using hashtags that your target audience is searching for and following.
