International Travel News (ITN) recently published its 500th monthly issue. With a dedicated following, the subscription-based publication covers travel destinations outside the U.S. Since 1976 it has been serving a niche market of veteran international travelers.
ITN's online edition includes a digital copy of the print magazine and provides more photos than the hard-copy format. In conjunction with its 500th edition celebration, ITN offers an annual subscription rate of $15 for the enhanced online edition, which also allows access to a full color digital version of the print magazine. Current and new subscribers can access all archived content from previous issues, post questions, contribute to the readers’ message board and submit their own travel articles. The print edition annual subscription rate for 12 issues is $26, and it includes access to the online version.
Founding publisher Armond Noble often remarked that the articles in leading travel publications were written by professional writers who were given their trips free of charge. It stands to reason that everything reported on was glorious and pristine. Armond envisioned a publication where travelers who paid their own way could have a voice. ITN was conceived as a magazine in which the subscribers themselves contributed articles and letters, speaking candidly about tours, cruises, airlines and destinations.
“When Armond was in the hospital a few weeks before his death, I gave him the February issue of the magazine to read,” remarked his widow, Helen Noble. “After reading it, he crossed out the words ‘By the Traveler – for the Traveler’ on the front cover and wrote ‘A Celebration of Travel’ — that's what he felt the subscriber contributions represented.”
Printed monthly in a black-and-white newsprint format, ITN is both a news source and communication medium for travelers to destinations outside of the United States. Covering everything from budget to luxury travel, each issue presents travelers’ experiences, candid evaluations and advice as well as timely travel news and information on such things as tours, flights and cruises. Each issue also includes a selection of columns on various travel subjects from a cadre of contributors such as Rick Steves. ITN readers look out for each other, warning of travel scams and tourist traps as well as sharing travel tips and recommendations.
