Group Leisure & Travel covers 1995 - 2020

First launched in March 1995 GLT is published by Yandell Publishing (part of the Yandell Media Group), an independent family company based in Milton Keynes.

Posted to readers on a monthly basis, the magazine provides ideas, contacts and advice for group travel organisers and coach tour operators.

Be it a retired group, a party of friends, a sports & social club, or any form of special interest group, here at Group Leisure & Travel we aim to inspire… and entertain.

The magazine is available free to qualifying group travel organisers (GTOs) and coach tour operators in print by post and an online digital e-magazine.

But who are these GTOs we refer to and what is group travel? To read more about the market and our audience click here.

What do our readers think?

When we receive feedback from our readers it makes it all worthwhile. Here’s an email we received from Ray Spiller from Broomfield Coach Trips…

“Your latest issue came through the letterbox today. It is so packed with wonderful trips, great ideas and so much to read, see and do! The only downside is - we can’t fit everything in!

You really make it difficult to pick out things. A good number of places we have booked already - thanks to your ideas, but you have so many that we could easily fill another 12 months of trips.

Our group has already done 53 day-trips this year and before the year ends could well notch up 100 trips inside 12 months.Each time your magazine comes through the letterbox I make a shortlist. The problem is the shortlist is becoming a BIG list!

Thank you so much for all the work you and the team do. Groups would be struggling without your magazine and its ideas.”

Travel Exhibitions & Events

The annual Group Leisure & Travel Show (GLT Show) takes place every autumn at The Marshall Arena, Stadium MK, Milton Keynes.

The one-day exhibition presents GTOs with hundreds of exhibitors ready and eager to help and advise with all sorts of group travel planning. It allows organisers to see so many people in a short space of time and deal with the experts face-to-face. Exhibiting companies also enjoy the benefit of a targeted, high quality audience with huge spending potential.

The annual readers’ choice awards ceremony celebrates the best, as voted for by Group Leisure & Travel readers. Taking place each summer, the initiative culminates in the Group Leisure & Travel Awards ceremony offering the ultimate accolades and the biggest celebration.
