Reviews and Press Trips

Travel bloggers are, by nature, active and adventurous. We love to travel as much as we can and we spend the rest of our time creating authoritative and trustworthy travel blogs with a growing influence on people booking flights, hotels and tours online. We also offer great influence on social networks and love to tweet as we travel. We get our opinions online within minutes and our blog posts get traffic for months and sometimes years. Something no print-publication can offer.

In house reviews

Editors of Travel With a Mate, Matt and Deborah Preston often take part in press trips all over the world and arrange sponsored review trips with tourist boards, tour operators and hotel brands. We’ve reviewed tours in Cambodia, luxury trains in Asia, skiing in Bulgaria, hotels in Denmark, safaris in Borneo and much more.

Trusted writer reviews

Our site has over 180 great writers who all have their own travel blogs too. We send our most trusted bloggers on press trips and can arrange sponsored review trips too. We have a network of writers all over the world so it’s easy for us to find the right travel blogger for your project. We’ve sent our writers to review a 5 day surf school in Australia, Trekking in the Canary Islands and even had competition winners become writers.

Twice the brand exposure

Working with us and our team of contributors means you’ll get more than just the coverage of one blog. We often produce multiple review articles for our sister sites and partners. Our contributors also are requested to create articles both for our site and their own blog.


If you want to publish an article on our site or any other, but don’t have the time, resources or skills to produce the content? Don’t worry we can write it for you. We know exactly what content works best for our visitors. With years of experience with travel blogging we can help get your message across without sounding too pushy. We know what our audience like to read about and the best styles of writing for the internet. To get a quote for sponsored content or our copywriting service please contact us to discuss your project.


We love to give away prizes! Who doesn’t love a competition right? We’ve had some great partners over the years bringing fantastic travel prizes, cash prizes, gadget prizes and even entire holiday prizes too.

We run on average around 5 competitions a year and we’ve given away everything from holidays for two including flights, Cameras and iPads, Vouchers and money to spend on your travels too.
