While many of us are on lockdown in our homes, at least “travel influencers” are still out there sharing exotic shots of their enviable adventures. Part Instagram model and part tour guide, these globe-trotting beauties share a seemingly endless array of striking shots from dream destinations like Bali, the Maldives and beyond.

Collectively, travel influencers have spawned a whole new industry, where luxury hotels regularly pay Instagram ingenues for a few well-staged posts in a bid to reach their massive audiences. Travel-loving models range from famous former Maxim cover stars Alessandra Ambrosio and Alexis Ren to Instagram sensations like Kara Del Toro and Sara Underwood. Here, 20 of some of our favorite travel influencers:
