The British Guild of Travel Writers is the UK’s leading organisation of travel media professionals.
Pick up any national newspaper or travel magazine and you will find our work. Turn on the radio, switch on your computer, fire up your mobile phone and we’re there. We’ve been to every corner of the globe – and written about it, photographed it, spoken about it. From a luxury cruise ship to an off-the-beaten-track hostel, we’ve been there.
The BGTW is:
A seal of quality: The Guild is the bastion of reliability in the fiercely competitive world of journalism. Membership criteria are rigorous and members adhere to a strict Code of Conduct.
Well-connected: The industry is all about extensive networking, and we particularly value our strong links with tourist boards, PR companies, hotel owners and tour operators.
Independent: We always get to the heart of a destination and find the real story. We are not easily influenced – by fads and fashions, or by any number of fancy cocktails or meals.
Experienced: Active since 1960, we have seen many changes to the media industry. Our members have not only been responding to these changes but influencing them.
Contemporary: We are at the forefront of industry trends; we visit emerging destinations; we write for online media, we vlog, and we have over 250,000 followers on social media.
Recently our members have written – and won awards – for well-established, global, online and print publications in the consumer and trade sector, such as:
Magazines: National Geographic Traveller, Condé Nast, Wanderlust, in-flight magazines
Newspapers: The Times, The Telegraph, The Guardian, The Independent
Guide books: Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, Bradt, Frommer’s
Websites and blogs: Suitcase magazine, Adventure.com, Silver Travel Advisor
Trade publications: Travel Weekly, TTG, Travel Bulletin
