About The Travel Insider

Bringing you the best of travel and tech news, views, reviews, and tours

Here for you since 2001….

Would there have been a crazier time to start a travel themed website than in the dark days immediately after 9/11/2001?

Well, that’s what we did.  There was a desperate need for common sense among the panic, and that’s been our mission ever since.  Shining a clear light of common sense on an industry that often lacks both clarity and sense.  

So, welcome.  Please roam far and wide, add yourself to our free weekly newsletter, and follow us on Twitter.  Almost every week we add another newsletter and usually a feature article or two.

Access is free.  We survive on voluntary donations, some on-page advertising and referrals, and our occasional reader tours.
