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 contact us, 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 address?
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 from us.
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 unsubscribe?
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 above.
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 travel news.

Q11. Do I have to enter my email address each time I want to read the news?
A11. 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.
Q12. What should I do if I change email addresses or prefer the news to be sent to a different address?
