Here are 100 of the best travel influencers to follow in 2019.
The catch: each of these people has under 100k followers right now, making them much more relatable and inspiring in my book!
And you probably haven’t discovered most of these gems!
From their stunning photos to inspiring captions, each of these people is doing something right.
It was so hard to choose only 100 when there are so many people out there with beautiful travel Instagrams!
(If I’ve missed someone who should be on this list, comment their Instagram handle below! )
This list is just based off of people I have stumbled upon and interacted with as a fellow travel influencer.
I chose these travel influencers based on a few key metrics: their overall aesthetic, their unique travel destinations, travel tips they offer, overall caption quality, editing style, and photography.
The follower count listed next to their account name is the number of followers in June 2019. I’m sure by the time you’re reading this, the numbers have already changed!
And I wouldn’t be surprised if they are now in a new follower tier or even if they now have over 100k followers!
Keep an eye on these travel influencers- learn from them, study their techniques, follow them and get to know them through Instagram!
It’s a social media platform after all, so let’s get social!
