Our Vision

Our Vision

Local travel is not easily accessible for most travellers. It’s inflexible, offered as part of group travel or as an all-or-nothing option.

When we are able to travel again post Covid-19, our research shows people will be looking to avoid over-crowded hotspots in favour of more individual trips. They’ll also be wanting to travel experientially, responsibly, and in a more eco-friendly way.

Our vision is to make local travel accessible in a way that fits into the travellers agenda. We work with local partners who are passionate about their experiences, their skills, where they live and keen to share its best-kept secrets.

We are making local travel accessible so anyone can experience its benefits, as well as the benefits it brings to local communities and the planet.

Local authentic experiences – made easy.

We are inviting you to be part of our journey

Our crowd-funding project with investment company, Seedrs, looks to offer small investments for travel agents, our local partners and our community of experiential travellers, starting from just £10. In exchange, you will become a shareholder of Not In The Guidebooks and have a say in the way we shape for the future.

We see this as a step towards investment on a small scale, keeping a keen eye on growth and reaping the reward of financial success.

So what's in it for you?

By joining our crowdfunding campaign, you’ll not only become a Not in the Guidebooks shareholder – we have also set up a reward scheme with some amazing perks. Just our way of saying thank you.
