GLT Reader Club

Organising group travel can be hard enough, but how do you know if an attraction or destination is suitable unless you’ve been there yourself?

Through our special reader familiarisation trips, you can try before you buy. We’ve been offering readers of Group Leisure & Travel Magazine exclusive familiarisation trips in the UK and abroad since 1996, and you can apply for the latest trips right here.

Can I join a trip?

If you regularly organise group trips and holidays we’d love you to join us on a Reader Club familiarisation trip. All we ask is that the trip is suitable for your group and that you are seriously considering it as a future group visit.

We have visited the UK’s finest castles and historic homes, toured some of the country’s most interesting towns and cities, as well as sampling some of the best and most popular attractions for groups. Not only this, but we have travelled far and wide.

Read our Trip Reviews to see where we’ve been and what we’ve seen up until now, with comments from readers to get their view.
