Group Leisure & Travel is a monthly magazine, available in both print and online e-magazine editions, for group travel organisers.
First launched in March 1995 it is published by Yandell Publishing (part of the Yandell Media Group), an independent family company based in Milton Keynes. It changed its name from Group Leisure, to Group Leisure & Travel in May 2017.
The aim of the specialist travel magazine is to provide ideas, contacts and advice for people organising all types of coach tours, group trips and group holidays.
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 with more pages and a modern format that is as enjoyable as it is useful.
The magazine is available free to qualifying group travel organisers (GTOs) via post. Readers can also opt to just receive the e-magazine each month, or both.
But who are these GTOs we refer to and what is group travel? To see our view on the subject click here.
