National Geographic Traveller – Family
Special Issue Out Now

LONDON (10 January 2013) — The special issue of National Geographic Traveller - Family is available now on UK newsstands, focusing on trips on a budget for the whole family.

Cover story: National Geographic Traveller – Family tackles the issue of travelling with your family on a budget, whether the budget is £500, £1,000 or more. From city breaks to Lisbon, Krakow or even Texas to beach breaks to Antigua, or taking your teens on safari in Tanzania, the aim is to highlight great escapes that ensure a truly memorable travel experience.

Maria Pieri, editorial director, says: “It’s not cheap to take your family on holiday and when you’re also looking for a great travel experience, it can often feel the two don’t meet.

“In this issue we set out to prove you can travel on a budget and still have an inspiring travel experience, whether it’s a great day out, your half-term break or your main summer getaway. From the obvious to the unbelievable, why not try a trip with a difference on a budget you can afford?

National Geographic Traveler (USA) is the world’s most widely read travel magazine. It championed sustainable travel before it was cool and, eight times annually, celebrates journeys that are about place, experience, culture, authenticity, living like the locals and great photography. It makes a distinction between tourism and travel and stresses inquisitive, not acquisitive, trips. It employs storytelling and you-are-there photography to inspire readers to pick up and go. And, with the theme of “All Travel, All the Time,” it eschews fashion and fluff in favour of articles that offer a strong sense of place, inspiring narratives that make readers take trips, and solid service information to help them plan those trips.
