Travel Tips: Make Your Own Travel Brochures


Business communication has become the most important part of every kind and size of business. Presenting the value of a business and its services to a customer is the first step of building a successful commercial relationship. The process of business communication used determines your first and initial impression on your potential customers. But as travelers, we also have a strong desire to communicate with those back home. Sometimes it’s just to keep them informed about where we’re at and what we’ve been up to – maybe convince them to do a volunteer trip like you have or set out on another adventure. Other times, we come home after any length of time traveling and want to utilize our experiences in a professional setting.

One of the best ways to communicate those experiences is via a travel brochure. Along with the nosiness cards and flyers, the brochures of a company help it gain the attention of their potential customers in a very creative manner. The brochure is also a great and unexpected tool to pack in a lot of information – both written and visual – in a compact manner to then share with your family and friends. Whether it’s passed around on the couch or propped up in an office, your brochure can be the most efficient vehicle of communicating your travel experiences.

Though you can always make your own brochure, it is more advisable for you to have it printed by some of the best designers and printers in your locality. You can also find a lot of businesses devoted to the printing of beautiful and branded brochures and designing them. One great company for having a personalized travel brochure made is The site allows you total or partial control of the brochure’s construction – whichever works best for you. When you want to design the brochure and hand it off to be printed or use one of their convenient designs, the site allows you great flexibility and ease when making your brochure.

If you’re planning on working on the design yourself, you’ll likely need some kind of software like Microsoft office, Open Office, Libre Office or one of the Adobe products. These software often come with a lot of essential features for you to easily design some of the best designs ever. You can also use specialized open source software for free that may help you design the best brochures. All of the above software contain templates for the designs that you add data into or edit them as per your requirements to make the best brochure for yourself. If you are not much of a designer or not confident of your ability to design, then you can always rely on to handle the design for you.

Travel brochures are a rather top of mind communication vehicle when it comes to promoting a business. They’re a great, fun and cost-effective way of getting a lot of information to your audience in very little time. But on a personal level, travel brochures can also be a fun and creative way of sharing your solo experiences on the road with friends a family. A brochure makes loved ones feel like they’re being invited to join in on the journey – or perhaps start planning an adventure of their own based on all your useful information!
