About Us

Travel doesn’t start when you hit the road, and it doesn’t end when you arrive home. That’s why at SmarterTravel we deliver expert travel tips, inspiring destination stories, and timely travel news to feed your passion for seeing the world before, during, and after your trip.

Since 1998, we’ve worked hard to bring you the most interesting, useful, and exciting travel information on the Web. We’re a proud member of the TripAdvisor family and also grateful to say that we’re a two-time winner of the North American Travel Journalists Association’s (NATJA) Best Travel Website award.

We’re a team of writers, editors, and developers who love seeing the world and sharing what we find. Sign up for our newsletters, follow us on Youtube, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter, and join us for an amazing journey around the globe.
