Today I’m going to be sharing with you my top 30 travel hashtags that will hopefully help you gain some new followers and engagement. If you are trying to grow on Instagram, your hashtags should be an essential part of your growth strategy. People underestimate the power of a good hashtag these days.
Instagram allows you up to 30 hashtags and you better believe I’m going to be taking advantage of every single one. Before I get into the hashtags, I also wanted to answer a few hashtag related questions:
Should you use hashtags in your caption? There are SO many rumours about posting hashtags in your caption vs a comment and in my opinion, it does not matter. Either way works fine. I would just advise against posting it in your caption because it looks messy.
How can I check banned hashtags? Yes, banned hashtags really exist! We don’t ever know why a hashtag is banned and Instagram will never address these questions. You can check if a hashtag is banned by searching it on Instagram and it resulting in “No hashtags found”. More info here.
Should you switch up your hashtags? Yes, definitely! I wouldn’t use the same hashtags over and over. It’s good to switch them up so you can reach new audiences. I would make some hashtags relevant to your photo as well. For example, if it’s a photo in Europe, I would use #Europe, #EuropeTravel, #Europe_Vacations and mix them in with the top travel hashtags.
