Travel tips guidelines
A travel tip is a post sharing advice or important information that travelers might find useful.
If you want your travel tip to be successful, be sure to answer very specific "how", "what", "where" and "when" questions that people might have:
- How to go from point A to point B?
- What to expect when visiting this place?
- Where to take this bus?
- When to travel to this region?
If you want to talk about the "why" ("why visit this place?"), feel free to do so, but keep it brief in comparison to the more practical advice.
You are also welcome to add some background educational information; such as history, culture, fun facts, etc.
Tips for writing a good travel tip
- Use proper grammar, spelling and avoid the text message writing style.
- Add pictures that fit your topic.
- The tags that you add must be relevant to the topic you're giving advice on.
- Use your own style, vocabulary and English dialect. Do not worry if English is not your first language, travel tips are proofread before being published.
Self-promotion and advertisement are not allowed in travel tips. However, you are welcome to talk about your business / activity / blog / etc and share your website URL and social networks in your public profile. For more information, please refer to the rules.
If you wish to publish a sponsored travel tip, please contact us.
A minimum of 200 words is required to submit a travel tip.
