Testimonials

“Last year we converted 55% of the enquiries credited to Bradt into bookings. Our advertising messages not only form the basis of enquiry, but also help to build the presence of our brand.”

Emma Durkin, Regent Holidays

“Our half page colour ad in the Uganda Bradt Guide cost us less than £500. It resulted in a booking of over £100,000 from a family in the United States, who had read the guide cover to cover. Our best-ever return on advertising investment!”

Patrick Shah, Journeys Discovering Africa

“Bradt’s comprehensive field guides are always the go-to publications for people planning a trip. We have been very impressed with the service and thrilled with the results. It has a been win-win for everyone.”

Gerard “Ged” Caddick, Terra Incognita Ecotours – USA
