Code of Conduct

Members of the British Guild of Travel Writers will:

  1. Report objectively and fairly, with the aim of keeping the public fully and clearly informed on all relevant aspects of travel.
  2. Accept facilities necessary for work offered to the press only on the understanding that they are in no way obliged to publicise any or all of the operation concerned and that the provision of such facilities will not influence their judgement.
  3. In all matters appertaining to their professional status, conduct themselves in an appropriate manner and do nothing to bring the reputation of the Guild into disrepute.
  4. Not accept any work in the fields of publicity, promotions or public relations for travel-related organisations if it compromises the good standing or integrity of the Guild.
  5. Accept that any infringement of these rules may, at the discretion of the Committee, preclude them from membership of the Guild.

"It was the sign for carnage to begin. Plates frisbeed, bowls performed looping arcs through the air, dishes tumbled like acrobats against the sky, glasses caught the starlight as they rose briefly into the night. All eventually joined the growing pile of broken crockery on the flagstones below. Soon we had cleared the table and we paused, somewhat shocked, to admire our wanton vandalism. For a moment I thought the couple would go inside in search of more breakables, but we were sated and sunk back into our chairs to finish drinking, swigging straight from the bottles. Nodas never stopped dancing."


Andrew Bostock, Greek Easter, Inside the Mani, 2009
