If You Like… A Blog Series for HomeAway

At World Words, we love writing travel blog content. And not just our own – for other companies too! So when we were contacted by the lovely people at HomeAway earlier this year to write a series of blogs, we were delighted.

We had previously written a selection of travel guides for the holiday rental company, but now they wanted us to develop something a bit different: three long-form blogs that would promote some of their more – in their eyes – underrated Asian destinations. They found that their customers regularly booked three big destinations – Tokyo, Singapore and Bali – but were less likely to book other equally-appealing cities such as Kuala Lumpur and Seoul.

So it was our job to promote those lesser-visited cities. The idea? A series of ‘If You Like…’ blogs, comparing the top destinations to some less popular ones. We wrote three blog pieces in total, and you can read them below…

The Black Forest to Southern Chile: Even More New Destination Guides for Expedia

A couple of weeks ago, on this very blog, we revealed that we’d had brand new destination guides published by Expedia. What’s more, we gave you previews of three of these published pieces: Southwest Washington, Western Nicaragua and the Isle of Skye. The truth is, we’ve been writing literally hundreds of new guides for Expedia over the last few months, so on reflection, we feel we shortchanged you. Therefore, we’ve decided to add a few more.

Take a look below and you will find three more brand new Expedia destination guides written by the World Words team. The geographical spread of these is just as stark as our previous selection, taking us everywhere from the heart of Germany’s Black Forest in Europe to the south of Chile in Central America. So scroll down to take a look.

Washington to the Isle of Skye: An Entire World of Destination Guides for Expedia

As regular readers of the blog will know, we write a lot of destination guides for Expedia. And we mean A LOT. We have written about all four corners of the globe for this leading online travel company, whether it is Genoa in Italy or St Louis, Missouri in the US. In fact, just take a look through this project list for Expedia and you will find dozens of travel guides stretching back more than three-and-a-half years. And those guides are just the tip of the iceberg.

However, it’s been a while since our last set of guides for Expedia, so we are delighted to reveal that a whole new batch have just been published. These are spread far and wide, from tiny Scottish islands to vast American states. We’ve included extracts from three of these recently-published travel guides below, so scroll down to take a look.

Striking, Spirited and Eternally Sunny – Our New Guide to Sydney for Travelmob

‘Location, location, location’ – so goes the famous real estate mantra. If there were a travel-world equivalent, it would have to be ‘accommodation, accommodation, accommodation’. Where you choose to lay your head can make or break your trip. And with the spectrum of what constitutes accommodation widening year upon year, travellers are faced with more choice than ever.

At World Words, we have found ourselves writing about all kinds of places to stay, not just hotels, but also luxury villas, monasteries, farms and other unusual immersive accommodations. Recently, we have begun working with Travelmob, a vacation rental site whose goal is to help travellers live like locals, which means staying in local homes. We’ve been cooking up compelling landing page copy designed to give potential customers the lay of the land for destinations all across Asia and Australasia.

First up to get the World Words treatment is sunny Sydney. Scroll down to read more.
