The Yearbook

Over the years, the BGTW Yearbook has become one of the most valuable tools in the British travel trade. Not only does it have detailed biographies and contact information for all Guild members, around 270 of the UK’s top travel journalists, but it also includes a comprehensive directory of over 2,700 specialist PR companies, publications, broadcast media, tourist offices, tour and transport operators and other useful companies and organisations operating in the UK travel & tourism industry. All self-respecting travel PRs and editors should have a copy of their desk.

The 2014 Yearbook (published March 2014) comes 'bundled' with a year's concurrent access (to Feb 2015) to the website which includes the Contact Book, a constantly updated and fully searchable version of the whole Yearbook, an Events Calendar for planning and viewing travel industry events, members' news and a host of other useful information.

How to get Access

The cost of the Yearbook and access to the Guild website (renewable with each yearbook edition) is £95 plus postage & packing and VAT (chargeable on web access and the p&p).

You may purchase online in our shop using a credit/debit card (Mastercard, Visa, Visa Electron, Delta, Switch, JCB, Solo) or, if you prefer, be invoiced for payment by cheque.

Credit Cards

The Yearbook and a VAT receipt will be sent to you once payment is made.

Commissioning editors

Commissioning travel editors (books, newspapers, magazines, broadcast and web) who are in a position to offer paid work to our members are entitled to receive the Yearbook and web access free. If you apply for free access, expect a delay of a few days before you receive your access details, as we need to vet your application.

Please note that if you do not currently have a budget for freelance travel writers, we cannot offer you a free yearbook.

Underground, we hold candles to light our way through a labyrinthine approach to the rock-hewn monolithic churches. Suddenly the sunlight floods in through arched windows illuminating colourful murals depicting stories from the Bible. Angels, devils and saints observe us shuffling on the cobbles on bare feet. A priest appears, dressed in sumptuous crimson robes and holding aloft one of the silver crosses of Lalibela. He dons sunglasses to protect his eyes as our cameras start to flash, and he grins like a Hollywood A lister caught by the paparazzi.
