Travel Book Writers’ Guidebook Writing Tips

Here are some travel writing tips for the new freelance travel writer:

  • Opt for brevity. Keep your sentences and paragraphs focused on the main point you are making.
  • Be accurate. Make sure information in your travel writing is up-to-date, especially the opening hours, prices and addresses of attractions.
  • Highlight the unique aspects of the destination you’re writing about. What makes it stand out from other places that may seem similar?
  • Be familiar with the latest good travel writing. Know what freelance travel writers are writing about and read current guides regularly.
  • Take photos of everyday life and people (with their permission, if possible). They may make good images to include in your book.
  • Keep track of travel writers’ guidelines to make your book more professional and organised.
  • Read up on travel writing news to learn more about your travel writing career.



What Travel Writing Opportunities are available?


Travel guide writers can branch out into many specialised or niche travel guides. We welcome all of them to be published on our site.
