It is time to hop on this trend: unpopular travel opinions!

Is Paris or Rome worth the visit or are they overrated? Should you recline your seat on a plane? What about child-free flights? Some may be controversial, and some may just be preferences in travel, but we’ve all got travel opinions, right?

Thanks to a listener suggestion, we polled our listeners on Instagram and found out all your unpopular travel opinions. So in this episode, we’re listing them out and giving our opinions too!

What opinions do you think you’ll hear? What are your unpopular travel opinions? You can let us know in the comments or reach us on Twitter @wwhoneymoon, Instagram @worldwidehoneymoon, or email [email protected]
