The Times presents Destinations: The Holiday & Travel Show is the UK's leading consumer travel event and will be celebrating its 22nd year in London and for the fourth year in Manchester in 2015. The Shows not only attract over 60,000 travel connoisseurs craving inspiration, information and exclusive deals, but also act as a hub of consumer travel information for idea hungry journalists.


If you are looking to write a feature about a specific destination, type of holiday or individual exhibitor we are more than happy to provide information as required. In addition the Shows are a great way of gaining inspiration for future features and act as the perfect networking opportunity.


The Shows feature TV presenters, explorers and travel writers who aim to inspire and amuse our audiences with tales of adventure, bravery, spirit and humour. There are also hands on specialists from almost every destination and holiday type imaginable. If you are interested in an interview with any of the guests, or tips from a particular travel expert then please get in touch.


If you would like to run a competition to win tickets to the Shows, or you are interested in the possibility of a holiday promotion, we may also be able to help. Please reserve your ticket allocation NOW.


An incredible selection of images are available to illustrate event listings and features on the Shows, please let us know your requirements.
