What Customers are Saying About TravMedia
"TravMedia has been a lifesaver for me in providing contacts and targeted experts for interviews and quotes with little lead time. I couldn't do without this resource!"
"Travel is a fast paced and ever-evolving industry. Keeping tabs on hotel openings, takeovers, new airline routes (and closures), staff appointments and special events is almost impossible without a decent web-based tool. For me TravMedia fulfils that function admirably, supplying a digest of travel-related information specially tailored to my needs and interests. As a freelance operator writing mostly about the Pacific, South-East Asia and Australasia I find TravMedia an indispensable research tool -- providing story ideas, industry contacts and trend updates. Indeed, reading TravMedia is an essential part of my daily research routine."
"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for everything you guys do at TravMedia. The press wire, the editor call outs, the conferences - is just priceless. I've enjoyed so much opportunity through your network! Thank you, thank you, thank you. I thoroughly appreciate the connections, and my involvement in it."
"TravMedia is my go-to resource for industry news, events and contacts. The Daily Summary feature where I get one email with a summary of all the releases that day is key. Rather than receiving dozens of separate releases from different PRs and tourism boards, I scan through this summary and focus on what's of interest. I can then click through to the main site to read the full release and access other resources such as images and video."
"TravMedia lets me get the message of Franklin, Tennessee out to a hyper-targeted list of media covering the travel industry, while also allowing me to keep an eye on industry trends and see what other destinations and media are talking about on a daily basis."
"We joined TravMedia almost from its very start. I credit Travmedia with securing Canada more content than we had prior to its existence."
"We have been working with TravMedia for many years now, and it’s a trusted PR tool that gives us the quickest route to our most influential media partners. There’s also the added benefit of well-attended media events, where we can meet all our target journalists."
"As a national newspaper travel editor, I find TravMedia indispensable for sourcing content, quickly, from the great multiplicity of travel PRs."
"TravMedia's a really useful resource for planning features and keeping up with the latest travel news. The journo request option is particularly useful and always results in some interesting discoveries - it's great if you're working against the clock too."
"TravMedia is an essential tool for us to send out our press releases and newsletters. It’s easy to use and reaches press far wider than our own mailing list. We strongly recommend it."
"TravMedia has been an invaluable service for me as a digital travel editor. I've sourced images, assistance for press trips, weekly travel deals and even writers. I've formed lasting relationships with PRs and tourist boards, which have been key to my success in the industry. "
"TravMedia has established itself as part of the travel PR DNA in the UK. Each day brings us valuable opportunities to gain coverage, and the media networking events are a vital way for us to touch base with lots of influential travel journalists."
"TravMedia’s Journalist Alert facility has proved very useful. I have also found all of the MediaPlace events useful and have yet to end the night without getting at least one or two good stories. For me, it is the only place to go when I need to contact travel PRs!"
"TravMedia is the Brighter choice! Our teams use the site to launch campaigns, build networks and respond to journalists’ needs. The TravMedia team is great to work with – we’re contented customers!"
"Travmedia is an invaluable resource for anyone in the travel industry. The platform allows access to a whole range of journalists and publications, and the social events provide fantastic networking opportunities. We wouldn’t be without it!"
"TravMedia has been fantastic, helping us build our media relationships and spread the word about responsible tourism. The events have also been very positive and add to a feeling of a real life ‘TravMedia community’."
"In my view there is no better service available. Without TravMedia I doubt we would have secured the successes we now enjoy."
"I look at TravMedia newsletters on a daily basis and often find items that I follow up with the company or PR. It’s a quick, succinct one-stop shop and useful for all travel companies."
"TravMedia has grown from strength to strength, becoming an essential tool for keeping up-to-date with industry news."
"TravMedia is essential for reaching the widest possible network of PRs. When I need specific information, I know TravMedia will get my message out to the right contacts instantly. No less important is that the team are all personable and approachable."
