Travel Columnists and Writers

We have included over 125 of the most well-known U.S. and Canadian
travel columnists and writers who's columns, articles or blogs appear regularly in newspapers, magazines, and on travel websites and email newsletters.  Some write exclusive for a newspaper or magazine, some are syndicated, and some have their own websites. Sometimes they have their own websites, as well as, write for others or are syndicated.  Note: Some websites require registration (usually free) before you can view some, or all, of their articles.

For each columnist or writer, we include a link to the
publication travel section of the associated online publication.  usually this will be an online magazine or newspaper (sometimes the publication is their own website), the Column Name (if there is one), the
person's name which you can click on to get contact information (this is normally an email address that will open a blank message using your email program), a link to their blog if they have one (if they don't have their own blog, we drop you off at any travel blog for the publication), a link to the archive of their past columns or articles and, finally, what kind of travel they cover (e.g., business travel, leisure travel ,etc.) 

Don't see an Author or Travel Column you like in the list?  Perhaps we overlooked them in which case we will be glad to add them if you drop us a line using our
Feedback Page.  Or that columnist may have retired or moved on to other things, or a publication may have retired the column. We include a list of travel columns that we know no longer exist at the bottom of this page.
