Why Your Captions Matter

In the very beginning, Instagram used to be mostly a visual platform where people would share photography. Over the years, Instagram has developed and it has become a place to connect with others get to know one’s personality. The launch of videos and Instagram stories makes it so much easier to get to know someone.

However, Instagram feed posts are still the best and longest lasting way to share your beautiful photos. And this is where captions play an important role. Especially if you are an aspiring travel influencer, you are going into an already saturated market and in addition to creating great Instagram photography, having a memorable caption can really help you stand out and grow your Instagram account.

People on Instagram are looking for more than pretty photos – they are looking to connect and the best way to connect is by showing them your personality. Are you funny and always cracking jokes? Do you want to inspire people? Are you a motivator? This list of 365 Instagram travel captions covers all types of captions to help your personality shine through in your Instagram posts!

Guidelines and Limits of Instagram Captions

Instagram has certain guidelines and restrictions when it comes to writing captions. It is always helpful to keep these in mind and make sure you are not exceeding any of the limits and risk your post being deleted or worse – an Instagram account block.

These are Instagram caption limits to keep in mind:

  • Instagram caption character limit (with spaces): 2,200 characters
  • Instagram hashtags limit: 30 hashtags
  • Instagram bio character limit: 150 characters (including emojis)
  • Instagram username character limit: 30 characters
  • Number of accounts you can tag in your photo: 20 in a normal post, 15 in a carousel post

Tips for Writing a Great Instagram Travel Caption

How do you actually write a compelling Instagram travel caption? What are the most important things you need to do to capture your audience’s attention and make them hit that “read more” button? These are my best tips on writing a great Instagram caption.

The first sentence is the most important! This is what the reader will see first and your goal is to capture their attention so they click “read more”. If your first sentence is not compelling, they may not read your entire story and you have missed an opportunity to connect with them.

Ask a question. One of the best ways I found to have an engaged audience is to ask them questions in my captions. Everyone loves to talk about themselves and asking them a question is a great way to learn more about your audience and to increase your travel post engagement.

Do not use swear words! The Instagram algorithm is designed to detect swear words and will block your post.

Add a Call to Action. Think about capturing the attention of your readers and directing your Instagram audience to your latest blog post, your Instagram stories, Instagram guides, or anything you would love them to read. An example is “make sure you check out my latest blog post about the best budget hotels in the Maldives. Link in bio.”

Use hashtags beneath your caption. If you add hashtags within your caption, it reduces readability and you have a greater chance of losing the attention of your audience.

Use emojis! Emojis are so fun and are a great way to share emotions in addition to the caption. If you think about it, have you ever skipped a post that started with a broken heart or crying emoji? It symbolizes a heart-felt story is being shared and you likely want to read it. Make sure you add a relevant emoji in the first 2 lines of your caption to capture the attention of your audience. Emojis in the middle of the caption also help to break down the content into easily readable sections.

Use shorter sentences and breaks. People don’t like to read large blocks of text. It’s not appealing to the eye and they will skip reading your post. If you want your readers to read your entire caption, make sure to use short sentences and break up your text in paragraphs. You will have a higher retention rate if your text is nicely formatted and not just one big pile of words.

A great tip for writing your captions is to write them in your notes and prior to posting, copy the caption into an online line break tool so that it will preserve your spacing in the caption. That way Instagram won’t delete your spaces and you have a visually appealing caption.

Another option is to choose the shortest Instagram caption of all! Try one of these 400+ One Word Instagram Captions, including a travel section!
