From Thailand to Tunisia: Destination Guide Website Copy for loveholidays

In late 2020, we were approached by loveholidays (the UK’s fastest-growing online travel agency) about adding some detailed travel guide content to various destination pages on their website. Specifically, they wanted 1,750 words of content for each page, written to a strict format that included sections like ‘things to do’, ‘food and drink’ and ‘FAQs’. Naturally, we were delighted to help. After completing an initial batch of 10 pages, we were then given a large, monthly commission to deliver pages in batches. To date, we’ve completed literally hundreds of different destination pages, varying from entire countries and major cities down to small islands and even specific resorts.

Below are short extracts from just five of the guides we’ve written over the last few months – that’s one for each of Asia, North America, Europe, The Caribbean and Africa. Simply scroll down to read them. If you want to enjoy the full guides – and get some great holiday offers – you can click the links through to the loveholidays website…

From Supreme Swiss Sights to Secret Spa Stops: Blogs for The Council of Europe

Regular readers of this blog will know that, back in summer 2019, we completed a series of country guides for an online trip planner called Routes4U. The project, a joint venture between the Council of Europe and the European Union, aimed to bring together disparate attractions from all across the continent in a series of themed routes and itineraries. To find out more about this, you can read our previous blogs on writing for Routes4U (here and here).

Fast forward to this year, and to help promote the service further, we were asked to contribute some blogs to the website. These would serve to highlight some key attractions spread across the different regions and itineraries. Ultimately, we focused on two blogs – one about Switzerland’s cultural routes and the other about spa stops on the European Thermal Towns route – and we’ve included snippets from both below.

‘Traditional’ Travel Content and Social Media: Here’s Why They Go Hand in Hand

In the modern world, we’re seeing more and more travel brands using social channels as their primary platforms for branding and marketing. In fact, some have ditched blogging and other common forms of content marketing altogether in favour of the more immediate gratification and precise targeting offered by a social-only approach.

It’s understandable, as social media – and especially Instagram – has been a gift for travel brands, with the visual focus offering a chance to show off available destinations and experiences at their most enticing. However, we believe that social media is a tool that should be used to complement other forms of content marketing… not to replace them. For us, the best form of relationship is a symbiotic one. Here’s our take on why social and content marketing are tailor made for one another, and how you can use the two in tandem to boost your travel brand…
