The topic of phrasal verbs can provide endless lesson opportunities because as you know, they are a very important part of English conversation and fluency. Native speakers use them without even thinking about them, and I’ll remind you that they aren’t just part of informal English, but a part of professional settings as well.
There is a good chance you want to improve your everyday English skills here with me because you want to work in an English speaking country, or pass the TOEFL/IELTS exam. However, I am sure you want to travel (in English), too! That is why I am helping you with English travel phrasal verbs today.
The 5 I chose for this lesson are a little “outside of the box”, and by that I mean they are not your standard travel phrasal verbs: check in, check out, pack up, get away, come back, go back, etc.. Instead, I decided to teach you phrasal verbs that I’ve used while traveling or that I know could be useful in the conversations you may have with your travel partners.
Remember, I am teaching these “Everyday English” lessons live on my YouTube channel every Saturday at 14:30 UTC. You can join me live, and interact with me directly, checking your comprehension of the material I teach with practice sentences and the opportunity for a live Q&A (question and answer) session. If you haven’t subscribed to my YouTube channel yet, head on over (*go*) and do that so you get notified when I am live!
Now, let’s review the live lesson and hear the definitions, examples, and questions regarding English travel phrasal verbs.

Practice Makes Perfect
In the comment below, create some sentence examples using the new vocabulary. For an extra challenge, try to use all of them in a text about your most recent travel experience.
You can use these discussion questions with a conversation partner to practice:
- Do you usually freshen up after sightseeing all day?
- Where’s the last place you set off to?
- What should I check out if I visit your city?
- What’s the most beautiful scenery you’ve even taken in?
- Do you prefer to pop in for a coffee, tea, beer, or wine to relax while sightseeing?
