Traveling should be something to look forward to – no stress, it’s a vacation! But trips can also bring out the worst in people. Aside from making sure your suitcase is packed just right, traveling with the right people also has to be a top priority. Here are 7 types of travelers you should avoid when planning your next trip:
- The Party Animal
- The Planner
- The Lost Cause
- The Know-it-all
- The Creature of Habit
- The Complainer
- The Chatterbox
You don’t want to get stuck with a friend who drowns herself in alcohol all day. Chances are, you’ll end up babysitting with no time to relax. So, if you don’t enjoy holding someone else’s hair over a toilet the whole night then avoid the party animal at all costs.
Party Animal: Wooohoo partaaaay!

2. The Planner
Though it could be useful to have someone organized around, it’s never fun to get stuck on a stiff schedule. You need to be around people who aren’t afraid to get lost and do something spontaneous. If your friend sweats at the thought of doing something unplanned, don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Planner: Wait, that’s not on our schedule!
It’s understandable to be lost sometimes, especially if you’re visiting a new place. But there are some people who can’t seem to get it together.
Directions: Take the yellow line.
Lost Cause: *Takes the red line and wonders why he’s lost”
She won’t accept your opinion, and she won’t back down on an argument. The know-it-all might be right most of the time, but that doesn’t mean she’s good company.
You: Look at the water, it’s so blue and beautiful!
Know-it-all: No it’s not. It’s more of a turquoise with a tinge of green.
This traveler just can’t let go of that one place he visited last summer, and he’s on his way again… for the 3rd time. It’s amusing at first, but sometimes once is already enough – get over it!

She doesn’t like walking, crowds are not her thing, and the bed isn’t good for her back. Nothing ever seems to meet her standards. Don’t let her tag along if you don’t want to roll your eyes the whole trip.
Complainer: OMG! How is this a 5-star resort?
One plane ride with him and you already know his whole family history and the name of all his pets. He means well but you have to take him in small doses, and a trip is too big a dose.
