Work with us to promote your travel-related business or brand

Are you selling holidays, accommodation, travel services or related products to a UK-targeted audience?

If so, the Holiday & Travel Directory offers a range of advertising and promotional opportunities to suit every business and budget, all focused on delivering great value to you and your business. Types of businesses that we currently work with include, for example:

By working with us, you can tap into the popularity and sector authority of this site, our strong presence on social media – with more than 2,100 Twitter followers as of January 2017 – and the high profile in the retail and digital worlds of our site’s owner and editor, Graham Soult.

Named in Retail Week as the UK’s 12th most influential retail Twitterer earlier in 2016, and once described by The Journal as “a cross between Mary Portas and Stephen Fry”, Graham is recognised as one of the country’s top retail bloggers and commentators.

He has been interviewed live on the BBC News channel, written for Retail Week and Sage, and is the lead writer of content across the CannySites.com network of sites, including the Holiday & Travel Directory, where he combines a warm, chatty, cheeky style with an eye for a great story.

Graham is joined by a team of talented and experienced freelance writers who contribute additional content as required.
