Default Which Travel Magazine Do You .....

subscribe to on a monthly basis ? I currently subscribe to several that are up for renewal in January and to save money (for my evacuation fund), I am only going to subscribe to one


after reading all of them last week due to not having power for a week, I've decided that National Geographic Traveller is the best

if you subscribe to travel magazines and could only pick one, which one and why /

I get Cruise Travel, and every year it gets more and more ads, but I love the letters to the editor...And, with my extra ailr miles, I get Conde Nast Traveler. I really enjoy the ombudsman column. I use to get it, and pay for it, but,I am glad it's now free until 2012!

Since my focus is more on the cruises, that's where my heart lies, but between Nat Geo, and Conde Nast, I have always preferred CNT....

None and I wont get any either in the near future. I get Medical journals, I get consumer reports, that's it. Of course NCL sends for free their blurb.

I'm still getting Cruise Travel, mainly for the letters section. I've had 3 letters published so I guess that might be why! :-)

I used to get Conde, too but started reading some magazines at the library instead. I get Triple A's member mag and actually it is pretty good.

Two Rivers has a great library for a town with 12,000 and I recently found out computer use for the internet is free and 10 cents a copy to print.

I like Budget Travel. I love the last minute deals and have had some success with those. I also really like the destination highlights I've clipped several of the city and country highlights for our upcoming European Transatlantic cruise. I really like the website as well as an added feature to the magazine. I think this would have to be my favorite travel mag.

I subscribe as well to Conde Naste but it's more of a dreaming guide since I can't afford very many of the places or packages that they advertise. Fortunately I still love to dream along with their magazine.

Default Which Travel Magazine Do You . . .

None. I used to subscribe to Conde Nast Traveler, but everything in that mag is too high end. Also took National Geographic Travel for a time.

I subscribe to CNT, Budget Travel, Travel and Leisure, NG Travel, Islands, Caribbean Travel and Life, and Florida Travel and Life. We also get the AAA go guide. I love them all, but if you made me choose just one it would have to be Caribbean Travel & Life. Not only is it informative, but they also have the most beautiful pictures. A close second would have to be Budget Travel. I love their true stories in the back of the mag. They put together a book of these short stories called A Stingray Bit My Nipple... and other true stories. It's hilarious!

How timely this call was..all week long, I have had this Colorado phone call go to voice mail, with no messgae left, which I thought was klnd of odd. Tonight I finally decided to answer the call, and it was Cruise Travel Magazine! They were asking if I wanted to renew, at $ 58.00 for 2 years..YIKES! Thanks, but no thanks, not for that price.

Good thing, Trip, sounds like a scam to me! I remember reading in CT that they do not call people to renew, strictly by mail!

Rob and subscribe to Cruise Travel, Caribbean Travel, and Sherman's Travel. With any issue, of any travel magazine, you learn so much information. I don't find any magazine better; it all depends on what information you are looking for.
