When it comes to travel content writing, it can sometimes be tempting to massage the truth about a destination, resort or airline. After all, it isn’t always an easy task to seek out the positives of a grey hotel block in Benidorm that’s six miles from the beach; omitting some information or smoothing the rough edges can seem the simpler option. But travel content has a duty and obligation to be informative and accurate for its audience, as well as inspiring and salesy for its client. Not only is giving an accurate picture the moral thing to do, but it also ensures audience expectations are realistic, allowing them to make an informed choice about their travel arrangements.
We asked our expert travel content writers at World Words for their advice about how to ensure your travel copy is always honest. Taking the example of a hotel, we collated five of their top tips on writing truthful travel content.
