About Bradt Guides

Join The Travel Club

Run by Bradt Guides, the world's leading independent travel publisher, The Travel Club strives to be the leading resource for those serious about travel. 

Membership comes in three tiers, each unlocking a range of subscriber-only benefits and rewards. All members receive The Travel Club e-zine, delivered directly to their inbox each month, offering an inspirational blend of entertaining ‘long reads’, stunning photo features, interviews with like-minded travellers, local recipes and fiendish quizzes. We aim to inspire those who – like us – are passionate about travel to the world’s most interesting places, both off and on the beaten track.

But membership comes with so much more besides. For starters, it offers the chance for you to save money with a range of exclusive discounts from our favourite travel brands (from magazines to kit providers and tour operators). We also run monthly events as part of our Travel Club Talks series, for which members get free tickets. Finally, members also enjoy a 50% discount on all Bradt books forever! That’s got to be worth the membership fee alone.

And that's not all. In the Globetrotter or First-Class Traveller membership categories there are further benefits, such as a free book each month and access to our tailormade concierge service.

This is a club of like-minded people who are serious about travel. If that's you, then join us today!
