Best Creative Travel Hashtags for Instagram

It has taken some time, but with a lot of trial and error, we have determined what are the best hash tags to use for travel on Instagram.

Should I use Hashtags on Instagram?

The simple answer to this question is yes you should.

The reason why hashtags are so important to use on Instagram is because it means many more eyes on your page.

This translate to more followers and more engagement equaling a Insta-famous star! (Well we can hope!)

In accordance with the policies of Instagram, you are allowed to use 30 Hash Tags.

Different influencers will tell you different theories on how many hash tags is ideal to use.

Some strongly believe you should not use any less than 30. Others believe going too far (aka 30 hash tags) can flag you for Instagram’s spam policy and lead you to become shadow banned.

Oh, and by the way, the notorious shadow ban is NOT a myth! We have personally been shadow banned and it is not at all fun not having people see your post on Instagram. Why go to all the effort to post if no-one is going to see it?

If you don’t know what the term shadow ban means, basically, it means not having your posts appear in hash tags.

Instagram is coy about what will cause your account to be shadow banned but we know from experience one way to get shadow banned is using the same hash tag over and over. Big no no.

So the first point is mixing your hash tags up! Don’t use the same tags on every post or you will be a victim of the notorious and dreaded shadow ban!

Our second tip for you is to place your hash tag in the post description NOT your first comment. Hiding your hash tags may be prettier but this is a method that will result in you being shadow banned.

We have found that around 20 hash tags on our Instagram posts is the sweet spot in having many entries in the lottery but avoiding the shadow ban.

Okay so first things first, there is no one standard answer for what hash tags you should use.

There is a formula to this so listen carefully. There are two questions to determine which hash tags are best for you!

1. How Large is your following?

The first thing we should consider is how large your following is. Aka how many followers do you have.

This vital piece of information will determine the size of hash tag we can go after:

  • 0 – 20,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 10,000 tags
  • 20,000 – 40,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 50,000 tags
  • 50,000 – 100,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 100,000 tags
  • 100,000 – 300,000 – Aim for hash tags less than 300,000 tags
  • 300,000 + – Hit them big tags up!

2. What is your engagement rate?

It doesn’t end there though folks. Oh no, that would be way tooo easy and Instagram is anything but easy.

If you have 300,000 followers and an engagement rate of 0.01%, you are not going to appear in top of 300,000+ hash tag.

Why?

Whether your followers are engaging and how fast your followers are liking and engaging on your post will determine whether you appear at the top of a hash tag.

If you need to work on your engagement, aim for hash tags in one to two categories down from your follower count.

Remember the aim of the game is to appear at top of hash tags and gain more followers and likes!

Should I do travel hash tags alone?

No, hash tags work best when they are mixed with  other hash tags that are relevant to your picture.

The main thing you should consider here is relevance! You should not hash tag #cutedogs if there is no dog in your photo! Instagram has intelligence to work this out!

Use around 5-10 generic travel hash tags, 5-10 location hash tags (for example France hash tags!) and 5-10 action hash tags based on what you are doing.
