In addition to premium and standard positions, Travel also offers advertisers dedicated, cost effective advertising environments within the Travel Directory and Accommodation Directory.

How readers engage with Travel

Readers see Travel as inspirational and easy to read with advertising that makes sense. For many, advertising is as important as editorial content.

Travel strongly engages readers by ‘inspiring me’ and ‘entertaining me’.

“It’s like armchair travel isn’t it? You can sit and dream and wish and plan maybe”


What does this mean for advertisers?

The Herald’s Travel section is a dedicated environment that draws in motivated readers – advertisers benefit by placing their brand within an informative, practical and highly valued weekly section.
