How to Advertise on Perceptive Travel


Want to reach real travelers who want to see the world?

If you want to get in front of active, engaged travelers who take a lot of trips and then talk about them, you've come to the right place. Perceptive Travel is home to quality travel writing that speaks to curious people who can't wait to look around the next corner. Our readers are not just eyeballs. They are people who book lots of trips, go on adventures, and spend their time in interesting hotels. Here's our Media Kit.

This is not a venture-backed corporate travel site: you have to send ad requests to the editor's e-mail box. But here's what it costs to get the word out, from the cheapest to the dearest—and even the dearest is not very dear. *Please note - We don't do sleazy ads: no sponsored posts, custom content, advertorial, or paid links in the content. The best way to really push your company or client is to be a true sponsor. We offer integrated programs with banner ads, social media mentions, and content inclusion starting at just $500 per month, through 1 site, 3 sites, or a full 360-degree program with 5 travel websites and 10+ blogs. Contact editor ( at) for a proposal.
