Surge in subscriptions sees National Geographic Traveller (UK) become the largest subscription magazine in the holiday, travel and tourism sector

National Geographic Traveller (UK) has reached over 30,000 subscribers, after seeing a surge in subscriptions in April and May, and an agreement with Lonely Planet magazine to take on its subscribers.

The coronavirus pandemic has had a swift and deep impact on many industries, including travel and publishing. Sadly, this has meant Lonely Planet magazine will no longer be published. From 1 June, its subscribers will receive National Geographic Traveller as well as the upcoming issue of National Geographic Traveller Food.

National Geographic Traveller’s next issue (July/August) will reach over 30,000 subscribers. Based on ABC figures, this will see the title become the largest subscription magazine in the holiday, travel and tourism sector. 

Matthew Jackson, publisher of National Geographic Traveller, said: “We’re deeply saddened by the news Lonely Planet magazine will no longer be published, but we know this is a minor blip in this brand’s great journey. However, we’re delighted to welcome its subscribers and share our range of magazines, websites and live events with them so they can continue to be inspired and explore the world through National Geographic Traveller.”

National Geographic Traveller (UK) has a cover price of £4.95, is available via subscription and on newsstands, and is published 10 times a year. Visit nationalgeographic.co.uk/travel for more information.
