We often receive emails asking us questions about our Latest
Travel News, and our free Latest Travel News Daily Email, so below
we have taken the most popular questions and tried to answer them
as best we can.
One recent development that affects some users is that some of
the free email services block not only our travel news, but all
our other emails as well! Hotmail does this frequently and for
different periods. So, if you find that you are not receiving the
travel news, and it seems that we do not reply to your emails
asking why, then it may be an idea to sign up for a more reliable
service such as gmail as it is completely out of our hands.
If you have a question which remains unanswered then please
feel free to
we are always more than happy to help.
Q1. If I subscribe to your
latest travel news daily email what will you do with my email
A1. Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us and we can
guarantee that not only do we not sell your email, or pass it on
to third parties we, ourselves, only use it to send you the Latest
Travel News Daily Email. You will not receive any other emails
Q2. How often is the news sent
out by email?
A2. The Latest Travel News Daily Email is sent out five times
per week, Monday to Friday.
Q3. Sometimes I do not receive
five per week - why is this?
A3. Sometimes you may not receive five emails per week due to
different reasons. Perhaps one day there was very little news, and
therefore, rather than send out the Latest Travel News Daily Email
with just a couple of articles, we prefer to keep hold of them and
load them into the following days news email. Another reason is
sometimes the email may just get lost, or stopped at the server
for some reason, we have no control over this.
Q4. How easy is it to subscribe?
A4. It could not be easier. We do not ask you any questions,
all you have to do is enter your email address into the subscribe
box on our
Latest Travel News page and hey presto - that is it!
Q5. How easy is it to
A5. As easy as it is to subscribe! Simply reply to the Latest
Travel News Daily Email with the word 'unsubscribe' in the subject
line of the email and we will take immediate action.
Q6. I have not subscribed but I
still receive your email - why is this?
A6. We do not send unsolicited emails, so if you are receiving
our Latest Travel News Daily Email then either you, or possibly
someone else, has subscribed on your behalf. If you do not want to
continue receiving the email simply unsubscribe as described
Q7. What format is your latest
travel news daily email in?
A7. Our audience travels, they are constantly on the move or at
the very least interested in the travel industry. For this reason
we decided to opt for the simplest format which is plain text.
Plain text is fast to download, cannot contain malicious code and
is simple for you to read. Each news article is summarised with a
link direct to each news article. HTML emails and pdf attachments
can easily contain very hard to detect malicious code which could
damage your system. HTML and pdf attachments may look pretty, but
for security and easy of you we feel it not only safer but faster
and simpler to use plain text.
Q8. Who reads your travel news?
A8. Good question. Because the subscription is entirely
anonymous we cannot give you 100% accurate figures, however we
have well over 33,000 subscribers and this figure grows daily. We
do know that most leading travel journalists around the world
receive it, which is in itself, a sign of how up to date and valid
the news articles are. Senior management within hotels, agents,
airlines etc, education bodies, consumers and government bodies
from around the world and related to tourism all read our latest
Q9. Is the news and email free?
Q10. Do I have to enter my email
address each time I want to read the news?
A10. Not at all. You only need to enter your email address the
one time to subscribe after that you will start receiving our
Latest Travel News Daily Email and there is no need to re-enter
your email address.
Q11. What should I do if I
change email addresses or prefer the news to be sent to a
A11. If you change email or would simply like the news to be
sent to a different address from the one you subscribed with
simply send us an email and tell us: a) the email address you
subscribed with and b) what you would like it changed to.
Q12. Are your news articles easy
to print out (printer friendly)?
A12. Yes, all the travel news articles are on their own
individual page with special code which ensures that when you
print the article you will receive only the article and not the
