Are you passionate and knowledgeable about travel? And do you have (professional) writing experience?

Then we’d love to hear from you!

At Indie Traveller we invite writers to pitch us on their travel experiences and the topics they can cover. We believe the best articles come from first-hand knowledge and passion for the destination.



1. Excellent writing ability

Please mention your past work, your own blog, or writing portfolio. We ideally work with professional freelance writers or experienced bloggers, or in some cases with expats or nomads who are based in the destination. 

For an idea of the level of quality we’re looking for, please check out these past contributions as examples: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

2. Familiarity with the destination

Authentic first-hand knowledge is critical! We’re not looking for cookie-cutter or rewritten content. We’re trying to select contributors based on their personal knowledge; the more you have it, the better.

If you just breezed through, say, the usual sights in a city in a day, then your article might not be quite what we’re looking for. But if you turned the place inside out, then we’d probably be excited to share your insights.

3. Only for countries we already cover

If a country is in our top menu bar then we’re open to articles about it. If not, we’re not ready for this country yet. 

We’re currently most interested in practical travel guide-style content, not human interest stories or travel diaries. That said, we believe practical guides benefit greatly from some personal anecdotes and perspectives.



Payment is via PayPal (or, if preferred, via Upwork).
