How to Pitch Nat Geo Travel

Have a great idea? We want to hear it!

Who We Are

National Geographic Travel is a multi-platform travel brand telling visually-driven, unexpected stories about the world. We provide travel information and inspiration found nowhere else, exposing people to new cultures and places.

What We Love

Our current priorities right now (check back for updates).

  • Experts to write fun guide pages with local tips for: Paris, Denver, Austin, Santa Barbara, Portland, Dallas, Savannah, and Phoenix
  • Geographic diversity: pitches about South America, Middle East and Africa
  • Short-form stories focused on surprising places (such as the doll hospital in Portugal, world's largest wine cellar in Moldova, or the least visited country in Europe)

What We Are Not Looking For

  • Narratives, except for in rare cases
  • Hotel or product reviews
  • Food stories: We'll pass.
  • Breaking news stories, unless there is a broader angle or deeper commentary on the subject
  • Destinations or events without an angle—pitch stories, not topics

How to Get in Touch

  • Don't include a manuscript, just send us a brief, well-researched paragraph about your idea(s).
  • Include links and/or clips to your recent publications to show you are the right person for the job.
  • We pay! We're happy to share details with writers, photographers, and videographers if your pitch is accepted.
  • Due to volume of responses, we cannot provide feedback for every pitch.
