BBC Travel tells awe-inspiring, immersive travel stories to curious, passionate readers who want to learn about the world as much as they want to travel there. We are fuelled by new, unexpected and emotionally engaging stories from a global community of editors, writers, photographers and video journalists who provide a trusted perspective on the world of travel. We are independent, impartial and honest.
In a complex world of negative news and xenophobia at one extreme, and top 10 lists and substance-less roundups at the other, we’ve lost the experience and sheer joy of travel. BBC Travel aims to provide an antidote by celebrating the people, places and cultures that make this world so wonderfully diverse and amazing.
To do this, we tell stories with unexpected angles – on themes such as culture, food, discovery and adventure – that haven’t been covered before. Not only do we teach our readers something new, we change their perceptions about places and people. Through our travel stories, we connect readers to cultures around the world, and appeal to people who aren’t travelling at the moment as much as those who are. We encourage responsible travel and tell stories with cultural sensitivity and sustainability in mind, from diverse perspectives.
We've received nominations and awards in the Webby Awards, Telly Awards, Lovie Awards, SATW Foundation Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Competition, British Guild of Travel Writers Members' Excellence Awards, Australian Society of Travel Writers awards, Travel Media Awards and the Global Travel Media Alliance awards.
