Over the years, we’ve learned how to make travel videos that succeed in revealing what it would be like to go to a place, and which give useful information about what to see and things to do. That’s why we call them Expedia Travel Guides. They run anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes long, exploring the city streets, or the national parks’ peaks, showing culture and architecture through the lens of genuine curiosity. Whether you’re a group traveling across Europe, or a couple mingling in the crowds of Southeast Asia, or going solo in the mountains of South America, you can use these videos to help plan the journey.

Interested in making a travel video of your own?

Here are some general and minutial tips we’ve learned over the years about what makes a good travel video:

  1. Each destination is unique. Learn to show off what makes your travel spot special. Look for obvious themes to give your video logic, coherence and flavor.
  2. Originality. What can you bring to the travel sphere that hasn’t been done before? To avoid going over the same old well-trodden path, watch a few other video guides for your destination before you break ground on your own project and you’ll soon see the same cliches trotted out. While there’s no avoiding the A-list attractions, try to keep things fresh by giving them a new spin with a few quirky facts or historical titbits, and original camera angles.
  3. Style counts. Try to develop your own unique ‘voice’ through editing, music, narrative and story style. Don’t mimic the presentation style of others; be bold; be you.
  4. Be consistent. Once you’ve found your style, stay true to it. Your style is your ‘brand’, and viewers are more likely to follow a brand that delivers consistency.
  5. Don’t obsess over the latest gear. A great story well told through the lens of an old phone will always trump a dull one shot with the best setup money can buy.
  6. Structure is key. Remember, all stories have a start, middle and end. Think of your video as a nice thick deli sandwich; without two good slabs of bread (your intro and outro) to hold it all together, all that pastrami, cheese and pickle is going to spill all over your viewer’s lap.
  7. A tight script matters. Don’t let your story drag or get bogged down; if your script is not moving forward, your viewers will soon be moving on.
  8. It’s a travel video. While researching your video it’s easy to get lost down fascinating historical and cultural rabbit holes. Keeping it light, keeps it tight.
  9. Travel with You in mind. If you’re into Zen gardens and tea ceremonies, that’s the path to follow, not the nightclub scene! Viewers prefer productions made with authority and passion.
  10. Scripts are to be said, not read. If you’re planning to narrate; spend a little time reading your script aloud to work out which lines sound natural and which sound wooden.
  11. Keep an eye on the clock. Work out your optimal run-time and stick to it across your videos.
  12. Be social: We always post our travel guide videos to our Expedia YouTube channel
  13. Rights. Make sure you have all the necessary permissions and rights to the images and audio in your vid.
