Inspiring travel quotes for Instagram

There is something about reading daily quotes that keep us inspired. Whether we resonate with the quote due to a current life event or we simply find it beautiful, quotes tell our stories and affirm what we already know in a poetic way. If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I LOVE starting off my in-feed captions with a motivational quote (or travel quote) and then sharing my own personal story or interesting facts about a specific destination or event from there. I guess you could say I’m the queen of finding the best travel quotes for Instagram!

I get asked on the daily where I find the quotes to my captions and in all honesty, most of the ones I find are from Pinterest (just like I plan my trips on Pinterest), but I also find great sayings through the books I read and also from my favorite poets on Instagram such as Alex Elle, Bianca Sparacino of Rainbow Salt and many more. Since I am a travel account, I would love to help you all out when it comes to using quotes with your current adventures and future travel content.

Below are 100 travel quotes that you could use on your Instagram captions. There are 10 quotes for each travel niche: solo travel, couple’s travel, adventure travel, beach travel, general travel, female travel, group travel (with family and friends), city travel, luxury travel and budget travel.
