Latest news from A Luxury Travel Blog (Q4, 2022)

Hello readers! This is the last instalment this year of the new quarterly round-ups that we’ve been issuing. We hope this year has seen you be able to enjoy a return to regular travel and, for those of you in the industry, we hope there have been plenty of signs of post-COVID recovery. Meanwhile, here are just some of the things that are going on with A Luxury Travel Blog.


As you may have seen, I have been slowly churning out all the content from our incredible trip to Iceland. This is no mean feat as we did so much whilst we were there! If you would like to follow the trip, we are producing new articles on a daily basis (and will most likely do so for most of the rest of this month), and you can follow all of this material as it is published via this link.

World Travel Market

As usual, I will be at this year’s World Travel Market held at Excel, London, one of the world’s leading international travel and tourism events. It is a great place to see what is going on in the world of travel andto connect face-to-face. This year it will be running from 7th to 9th November 2022. If you are attending and would like to meet, please contact us.

Christmas gift round-ups

I know it’s a bit too soon to be talking about Christmas. However, each year we do a series of Christmas gift round-ups which are all always super-popular. If you would like to see your product featured in one of these pieces, please make sure you complete this form.

As you may have seen in the news, the GBP is very weak at the moment – the weakest it’s been against the USD… ever! As I type, £1 equates to $1.12, compared with $1.35 at the beginning of the year and $1.71 less than a decade ago. As we are a UK company and all invoices are in GBP, what this means is that there has never been a better time for North American companies to advertise with us. In fact, it’s not bad a time for any overseas companies, as the pound is weak against most currencies right now. If you’d like to know more about the various advertising opportunities available on the site, please contact us.

  1. Good point about the value for overseas buyers of purchasing UK goods and services.

    I think the next year will be bonanza time for the UK tourism industry. How many Europeans will be heading to the UK to do their Christmas shopping?

    1. Yes, not so great for UK citizens wishing to travel overseas, but for anyone making the journey in the opposite direction, there couldn’t be a better time right now!

  2. As the $ is so strong against the £, I expect that a lot of Americans will be thinking that this is the best time ever to visit Britain.

    What are ALTB’s USA readership figures like? This could be a good opportunity for the UK tourism industry to advertise to the American market.

  3. Yes, I’ve been enjoying all the Iceland posts. From what I’ve seen of the pictures the whole family look to be enjoying an all-action holiday.

  4. I know bricks and mortar retailers will hate me saying it but I love the ALTB gifts round-up. I can usually find gifts for most of my family and friends. I really do detest battling with the crowds in town centres as Christmas approaches. Worse still is the traffic and nightmare of parking.

    1. Thanks, Sheila… that’s good to hear as we have some great round-ups planned for the upcoming season, even if it still seems a long way off at the moment!
