How It Works:
We will produce and distribute the
material to subscribers by e-mail.
The MP3 files will be supported by a
written script. (If MP3 is unsuitable,
just let us know and we’ll arrange
an alternative format.
We’ll also give advance notice of the
main feature subjects, whenever
possible, enabling those seeking to
source advertising time to approach
local or other suitable prospective
We are fully aware of BBC Producer
Guidelines, & tailor our audio version
so that it can be broadcast without
problems on BBC Local and Regional
stations. There is no advertising, and
mentions of any companies are only
in context of destination or travel
style reports. We add a mention of
the website where listeners can find
more information on any items we
feature, but as you will see it is an
information based site, and doesn’t
sell travel or any products.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I choose the features covered?
Generally we will plan the featured
destinations well in advance, so that
we ensure an even spread across
domestic, European, & international
travel. However, we are happy to
hear suggestions, and will certainly
aim to include them where possible.
Does it include advertising?
No. There will, of course, be times
when we mention a particular hotel,
ferry company, airline, etc., if the
articles relate to them, but there
won’t be any blatant advertising -
guaranteed! (BBC Stations - see
the box on the left).
Must we use it all, or can we edit it?
It’s entirely up to you. We have no
problem with you using just parts of
the product, as long as you don’t
change meanings or contexts of any
particular section. The only bit we
insist you keep is the footer from our
sponsor, which will simply say “For
more information on what we have
featured, visit protraveller.co.uk”.
But don’t worry, ProTraveller is a
travel information site, and doesn’t
sell travel. It is predominantly a
feature led site for family travellers.
Is it really free?
Yes. Absolutely. We are travel media
specialists, and the funding comes
from various Travel Principals and
National Tourist Boards, as well as
the sponsorship from ProTraveller.
