about soul travel blog and responsible travel

Why Work with Soul Travel?

Responsible Travel is a fast growing and strategically important “niche” within the travel industry, which we hope will become the norm. With the International Year of Sustainable Tourism Development (as designated by the UN World Tourism Organisation) in 2017, responsible & sustainable tourism has seen increased interest, engagement and momentum in recent months.

We also offer Consulting for responsible travel companies – find out more here!

Responsible tourism, however, remains a complicated concept for the average traveller – with “greenwashing” being an issue and many travellers not having the time or knowledge to find responsible travel options. For many, responsible tourism may not even appeal. Yet. And that’s where we come in.

We can help get the word out about your responsible tourism project/organisation. 

At Soul Travel, readers trust us for our authentic and honest communication about responsible travel, and for getting beyond any marketing hype: with our critical eye, our seal of approval matters. Our responsible travel guides rank highly and are some of the most comprehensive freely available today.

We’re committed to supporting industry initiatives to further sustainable tourism and are proud to be members of the following media networks and organisations. This has direct benefits for our partners (you!) as members often share and syndicate content, meaning even more reach and coverage for your organisation.

In addition, our work has been featured in the New York Times, Lonely Planet, Dame Traveler, The Culturist, and many more outlets.

What our partners say:

“Ellie was an absolute dream to work with. She is particularly knowledgeable in the area of responsible travel, and remains true to her niche. Ellie’s writing is clear and concise and she is becoming a thought leader in her space which is nicely aligned with G Adventures and our key messages. We loved having her travel with us and wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again. Ellie is a true professional in every sense of the word and delivers great work on time, with measurable results.” – Casey Mead, Global PR Lead, G Adventures. 

Blog Partnerships FAQ

Q. We’d love to collaborate, how do we get in touch with you? 

A. Great! You can use the contact form at the bottom of this page or email us directly at info[AT]soultravelblog[DOT]com

Q. Do we have to host two of you to travel vs just one? 

A. Yes. We travel as a duo – that way we can create more content for your brand and our followers to span photography, video and written work – this is not possible with only one of us. Our followers know and follow us for both of our takes on the destinations we visit and our unique experiences as a mixed-background couple.

Q. Who are your readers? 

A. Soul Travel blog’s readership is predominantly women aged 30+, who are looking for mindful travel inspiration across a range of budgets (from backpacking through to luxury / boutique eco resorts).  The blog currently receives 22,000 – 27,000 page views per month, the majority of which comes from organic search listings thanks to our high authority and quality content. Our top reader markets are USA, UK, India, Canada and Australia.

Q. Why should we work with you vs the 1000000+ other blogs out there? 

A. In one word: QUALITY. We’re not a one hit wonder on Instagram, rather we pride ourselves on creating high quality, in depth content here on the blog (and on social media) that puts the reader at the centre of things. We focus on their needs first and match those to our partners (you). You can rely on us to deliver what we promise and more, with results that you can actually measure.

Q. I’m an Impact travel startup / not for profit / NGO that does not have a budget for collaborations. Can we still work together? 

A. We love to learn about new inspiring and positive-impact travel initiatives, but of course we also need to find a way to pay our bills too. Please do get in touch to let us know about your project and we will do what we can to share it or suggest ways we might be able to collaborate / help each other in future.
