Serving visitors from coast to coast since 1967, TravelHost is the most widely read travel magazine in the nation and the medium of choice for thousands of advertisers - from local businesses to Fortune 500 giants - who are seeking to attract the traveling consumer.
Our unique distribution system places our magazine directly in the guestrooms of finer hotels, resorts, and timeshare properties, and, through a true 21st century multi-media publishing platform, integrates that with in-market specialty publications, national and local websites, and a state-of-the-art mobile app.
TravelHost is made up of a network of independent entrepreneurs, formally known as "Publishers", who are experts in their communities on travel and tourism. They introduce visitors to places to eat, shop, and have fun in the local market, and they love what they do.
Our organization provides the brand recognition, industry insight, and top-of-the-line print production that enables our publishers to focus primarily on sales, marketing, and business growth. Most importantly, we provide the opportunity for them to chart their own course with a proven and solid vehicle for reaching their goals.
If you're an entrepreneur with an interest in travel and tourism, a passion for sales, and a desire to finally start loving what you do, then TravelHost, "The Premier Destination Resource", may be just the perfect investment for you!
