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, Ellie’s work has been featured in the New York times, Travindy, Ethical Traveler, The Culturist, and many more outlets.

Sponsored Content & Giveaways – Have a responsible travel product or service you want to get the word out about? We’ll work with you to create a sponsored content campaign which could include blog coverage, social media and newsletter mentions, together with booking incentives for Soul Travel readers.
Press / FAM trips – are you planning a trip to promote your destination to responsible travellers? Let us know! We’re looking for destinations to showcase that are doing good.
Public Speaking, Interviews & Workshops – Ellie is an experienced speaker who has spoken at a number of events both in her current capacity and through her previous experience in the travel industry. Additionally we can also run workshops on different topics from communicating responsible travel to how to work with influencers successfully.
Brand Ambassadorships – where we work together with you for a longer period of time to communicate about your product to our community of responsible travellers.
Social Media Takeovers – We have quite an eye for engaging content and copy for social media. We can share the love by “taking over” your instagram (or other social media) for a period of time and sharing our content and experiences with your readers to increase engagement. Takeovers are also promoted on Soul Travel blog social media channels.

“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
