The most followed travel accounts on Instagram
With the new year comes new travel goals — and it can be hard to know where to start.
In November Business Insider teamed up with The Indie Traveller to create a comprehensive list of the most inspiring, wanderlust-inducing, and influential travel Instagram accounts on the planet — and following them is a great place to start when planning your 2018 trips.
In order to pinpoint the biggest travel personalities on the app, Marek Bron — who is behind the blog — created an algorithm to analyse hundreds of accounts (filtering out any brands or group accounts).
The "Top 100" was formed based on several metrics, such as follower count, follower ratio, account activity, and engagement rate. It includes some of the biggest names in the travel influencer world, but also some exciting rising stars.
Business Insider compiled a list of the top 30 most influential accounts according to the algorithm.
