25 Amazing Ideas To Use For Travel Instagram Captions

Updated: Sep 1, 2022

Over the years, Instagram has solidified its self as one of the best, if not the best way to connect with and build an audience through images.

There are many things that go into a perfect Instagram post, and one of them is having a good caption for your photos.

While the best way to write a caption is still to provide value to your audience by either giving information on your niche or even just telling a funny story explaining the meaning of the photo you are posting, but sometimes coming up with long-winded paragraphs can be difficult even for the most 'experienced' Instagrammers.

So here in this post, I have compiled a list of 25 iconic quotes about travel that you can use in your caption for those days that are difficult to come up with ideas.



One of the easiest ways to come up with a caption is to use definitions of words that are used in your niche.

This could be used in any genre, but since this is a travel-based blog, the examples I will give you are in the travel niche.

Some definitions to consider are:

Travel: To go from one place to another, typically over a distance of some length.

Traveler: A person who is traveling or who often travels.

Wander: To walk or move in a leisurely, casual, or aimless way.

Wanderlust: A strong desire to travel.

Explore: To travel in or through (an unfamiliar country or area) in order to learn about or familiarize oneself with it.

Exploration: The action of traveling in or through an unfamiliar area in order to learn about it.


Now one thing I will say, is that some quotes are very overused, and I'm sure we all know which ones I am talking about.

And while yes, I did include a few on this list, I tried to also find some more unique ones that you won't see as often.
