Use these captions for Instagram for your next Instagram vacation shot
A good caption for Instagram can make the difference between a mediocre post and highly engaging post that can earn you hundreds of likes. To make the most of your Instagram captions we have broken up our list into good Instagram caption practices and then a list of possible copy and paste captions you can use if you are short on time.
The best captions for Instagram rules
Tell a story
A good caption for Instagram will be a detailed, humorous or informative if possible, recount of the story behind the photo. Because all great travel photos come with an equally great story. This is a great way to engage your Instagram audience and convey the “real you”. Passion Passport (see below) is a great example of an Instagram account that has capitalised on the story style Instagram caption.

"I spent last September with the Tuareg and the Fulani people. Each year, the two groups meet for an annual courtship ritual competition called the Guérewol, which is held among the Wodaabe Fula people of Niger. There, young girls dress in elaborate ornamentation and traditional face paint and gather to dance and sing. I was touched by the culture of the celebration and promised to return next year with the photos I took. I am looking forward to keeping that promise come September." 📷@mario_gerth_photography 📍Ingall Oasis, Niger #passionpassport
A call to action
A good caption for Instagram encourages your followers to actively form a community. This is done through encouraging your followers to tag their followers in your pictures. This is a great way to gain exposure to potential new followers. A good Instagram caption for calling to action is, “tag your friend if…” or “tag a friend you want to travel here with”. And always follow the call to action phrase with a referral to something in your photo. We have included an example in our Instagram post below.
If you are ready to launch your travel blogger career but don’t want to commit to website development, then an Instagram microblog is the perfect way to start. Use the Instagram caption area to give recommendations to places to eat, see, and do by tagging those places in your caption and on the photo itself. A good caption for Instagram for microblogging can be seen in the caption of our Instagram photo below.
