Amazon.com Review

National Geographic Traveler magazine brings the world to your doorstep with lively articles told in a storytelling style and gorgeous photography that inspires wanderlust. Whether you're an armchair traveler or someone who takes a few international trips each year, you'll be immersed in multiple fascinating destinations in each issue.

National Geographic Traveler magazine covers both domestic and international destinations and includes details on lodging, attractions, and restaurants, so you can plan your own getaway. Insider's local tips and cultural events are also covered, giving you an in-depth look at the people and places of a given destination. There's a good mix of vacation types too, including adventure trips, family vacation options, and personal journeys. Regular features covering new hotels around the globe, road trip ideas, and cruise ship ports of call help you keep your finger on the pulse of the latest travel trends.

The writing style of National Geographic Traveler magazine is personal and heartfelt, so you experience the writer's impressions of the area as though you were there and get a true sense of the place. While some of the articles cover once-in-a-lifetime trips, such as scaling a mountain or trekking across a desert, others dip into little-known adventures closer to home, such as national parks and historic sites across the United States.

If you dream of traveling the world or want to find an unusual destination for your next vacation, National Geographic Traveler magazine can help you expand your understanding of the world and give you plenty of new places to add to your travel bucket list.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Travel Magazine January 28, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I have subscribed to National Geographic Traveler for almost a year and find it fairly enjoyable. The destinations are good, the photos are good and the articles are good. But also nothing to knock your socks off.

Why only four stars and not five? The magazine doesn't wow me very often and I have found that most of the articles focus on white bread middle to upper class Americans. I am not the sort of traveler who is going to be staying in $350 a night room when I go to Bali. The do have budget conscious or "nitty gritty" tours/hotels/destinations etc but there are fewer of those than luxury tours/hotels/destinations.

They also occasionally focus on trips that are a bit too exotic and remote. What are the odds that I will decide to scale K2, Kayak 28 days in the Arctic Circle or run a marathon in the Sahara Desert? The articles are okay to read but not in depth enough to be educational nor practical enough to go to. They do nothing but peak your curiosity a tad and then you move on.

So for me the magazine is only a 4 out of five stars. Will I renew my subscription, yes. Its a good magazine, but if your looking for something with just as good destinations, articles and photos with a bit less posh and unattainable, scope out the aptly names Budget Travel. If you have the money to burn when you travel and enjoy reading about other peoples extreme adventures this magazine will be perfect.

2.0 out of 5 stars A magazine for those with lots of money July 6, 2010
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I dropped my subscription to National Geographic Traveler after two years. The only really good thing about the magazine was the photography of the places covered--what you would expect from a National Geographic magazine. The articles and reviews in the magazines were generally useless for me as a middle-class traveler. I travel quite a bit overseas, but cannot afford most of the places NG Traveler covers. If you can afford the $300-$500 rooms at the places NG Traveler recommends, then subscribe. But if you are the average traveler on a budget, skip this magazine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Magazine for the Dreamer November 22, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
This is a great magazine for the dreaming traveler. Unless you have quite a bit of money, this may be as close as you get to some of these places, but que sera, sera. The photos are of National Geographics usual great quality, and every now and then you'll find something close enough to home to actually see.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine travel magazine July 2, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
This is a better than average travel magazine. Good mix of practical type stuff, budget travel ideas, and sort of 'dream trips.' I've read Frommer's Budget Travel in the past, and I like this one somewhat better than that. It is way better than the prestige publications like Travel + Leisure or Conde Nast Traveler, which cater seemingly only to the super rich.

1.0 out of 5 stars too many ads not enough content January 13, 2011
By E.M.
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I had this subscription for a year and at first was so excited about it. However this magazine disappoints. I thought the articles were really lacking content and depth, and everything else was just pretty superficial overview of a hotel or a place. The dramatic oh of disappoint hit me about a 1/3 of the way last year when I received the month with Maui revealed or something like that. I saved it as I was going to Maui and about a month or two later I opened it excitedly and got this what felt like a two page article full of....nothing helpful. I get cooking light and every month they do an article each issue about a place and restaurants of course. Even their articles give you a better idea of checking out a place than this magazine. Between these unhelpful articles this magazine is 90% ads. You have to make an attempt to find where the magazine is between all the ads.
Big disappointment. Did not renew subscription.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull February 3, 2010
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
This magazine seems to be all advertising. The articles written about places to visit are obviously written by people getting kickbacks from resorts, hotels and airlines, something we all wish we could get.

Who can afford a hotel room for $2000 a night???

Skip this magazine, the articles are dull, uninspiring and completely unrealistic to the average person.

Try Frommers "Budget Travel" magazine instead. Much better!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't get this from Amazon November 11, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I bought this as a gift, and first of all, it never arrived. My friend said he never got a single magazine. Second, the company will automatically renew your subscription unless you call to cancel it. They send you a single post card with the information, and unless you read closely, you may not realize what it's about. The cancellation process itself was painless and automated, but I don't think you should ever be automatically renewed for a one-year subscription.

5.0 out of 5 stars National Geographic Traveler Magazine January 8, 2008
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
It took less than a month for our order to be processed. Wow, what speed! So far, my husband and I are very impressed with the magazine. This magazine seems to offer something for everyone from both budget and interest perspectives. (Not just a travel magazine for the rich.) The photos are, of course, absolutely fabulous too.
