Join the Birmingham International Travel Group (BIT-Group) and see the world! Both first time and seasoned travelers are welcome. We offer 1-3 international trips annually with payment plans. If time or finances are an issue, we have local Meetups including dinners at restaurants featuring international cuisine, cultural festivals and events, day or weekend getaways, socials at bars, ice cream parlors and coffee shops!
We welcome members outside of Birmingham as well, and departure from alternate cities and states can be requested. We are NOT travel agents and are NOT part of a travel club with monthly dues rather, we are a "social group" of travelers who started traveling together about 20 years ago. We decided to start a Meetup Group to add new faces to our existing group of globe trekkers and add multiple trip destinations per year.
The travel group age range is 21-81years old and is comprised both of couples and single people. Many travelers are retired and those still working very greatly by professions from physicians, attorneys, educators, dancers, musicians, artists, bankers, computer techs to name a few, so you should fit in just fine! Prior to each trip departure the group meets 1-3 times in the Birmingham metro area to meet participants and group leaders.
In the past our group has traveled to Austria, China, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, France, the Galapagos Islands, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Montenegro, Peru, Portugal, Sicily, Slovenia, Spain and Turkey since 1997.
