Write for us travel guest posts
Ever since its launch and our very humble beginnings, VLM Travel Destinations has been rapidly growing with the purpose of becoming one of the most complete online travel guides with content that spans across all things travel and covers multiple fascinating destinations across the globe; from the most popular places to the most remote corners of the planet.
Our goal is to help our readers explore the best that each destination has to offer, provide them with local expertise and enable them to design a trip that best suits their needs. All this would not be possible without our valued local travel experts, guest writers, and freelancing contributors.
If you share our deep passion for travel, you believe that we are missing out on an important aspect of your favorite travel destination and you think you have what it takes, then we invite you to collaborate with VLM and share your stories and travel tips with the world! Regardless of experience, we are constantly looking for new contributors that will help enrich our community with educational, entertaining and engaging content.
If you’d like to join our growing team of travel experts and share your insight, we invite you to write for us and help us towards our goal of making VLM one of the most reliable and informative travel blogs in the world.
What travel guest posts we are looking for
If you want to write about a destination that we have not yet covered, a certain aspect or twist on one of our already featured destinations or even a new angle on a previously published topic, we would love to hear your idea!
Even though we value experienced writers and always take pride in publishing top-notch content, we welcome writers of all ages and from all walks of life to contribute to VLM as long as they share the same beliefs and the same passion for travel with us.
How do I begin?
Research your topic in-depth and tell us why you believe that you are the most suitable author to put the idea into words. Make sure to include a few lines about yourself, your previous travel experiences, any relevant writing samples along with links (if you have any) and links to your blog or social media pages if they feature relevant content.
Feel free to send us your idea in any form and extent that you think is most suitable. You can submit an outline of the article, a brief pitch with a few paragraphs summarizing the highlights of the article and the value it brings to our readers, a rough draft of the piece or even the complete article. Bear in mind, however, that the more extensive your submission is the easier it will be for our editors to provide constructive feedback and repurpose your idea if necessary. Also, note that we will not accept any content that has been previously published elsewhere – including your personal blog or social media profiles.
How do I submit my guest post to VLM Travel Destinations and what happens next?
You can submit your travel guest post via email. If you are unsure about anything related to your submission, feel free to reach out and we will try our best to get back to you as soon as possible. Once you submit your idea, an editor will review it and determine if the topic has been covered before in VLM and whether it’s a good fit. We will then get back to you as quickly as possible with our feedback and notes regarding changes or small tweaks.
If you haven’t worked with an editor before, there’s no need to worry. We at VLM see ourselves as members of a large travel community and we will be happy to help you hone your writing skills and adjust your writing style to suit our audience. Once the final article is accepted, we will schedule its publication. Bear in mind that we cannot provide you with a certain publication date, as our editorial calendar is often quite stocked. Lastly, If you have your own photos that you would like to see published along with your article, please mention it in your submission.
What are the benefits of writing a travel guest post for VLM Travel Destinations?
By working with us and publishing your article on our platform, you will get the chance to communicate your idea and showcase your writing to a dedicated audience that loves to travel. Your name will be published alongside your work and your post will be featured across all of our marketing channels, including our social media. If you have your own personal blog or social media profiles, we would be happy to link them to your article and allow our readers to discover the rest of your work as well.
Freelance travel writers
If you are a professional freelance travel writer and you want to contribute to VLM on a more frequent basis, we welcome you to get in touch and let us know you better. Please send us a few words about yourself and your experience with travel writing, previous writing samples and links to your personal blog or portfolio for review. If you are a potential fit we will get back in touch with more details about how we work and how you could join our network of authors.
Travel Guest Posts
Apart from content curated by our own members and articles submitted by contributors, we also accept guest posts. If you are looking to publish a guest post on VLM or any of our partner websites in the travel niche, please send us an email with “guest post” as the subject line and any information relevant such as the length of the guest post and the type content you would like to publish. A member of our team will contact you right away to discuss a potential publication and all the details of our collaboration.
Sponsored posts, ads and advertorial opportunities
We are open to discuss sponsored post opportunities. If you want to see your brand reach our devoted audience of travel enthusiasts with a post featured on the homepage of VLM, a mention in our newsletter or a few posts shared on our social media, please get in touch and let us know about the content, product or services that you want to promote. Make sure to write “sponsored post” on your email subject line.
