About Backpacker Advice

I had always wanted to go backpacking, but to be honest was quite apprehensive about it.

Now that I've been and done it, I can tell you that backpacking is absolutley amazing and I have no idea what I was worried about. That's exactly why I set up this site, to allay any fears you may have and help inspire you to go travelling.

    Sorry we are not accepting guest submissions at the moment.

    Are you or someone you know interested in writing an article for Backpacker Advice? Do you have a piece of advice we haven’t covered?

    We’re always interested in airing new and unique advice for backpackers, and we’d love to hear any personal tips or experiences you may have.

    If you are interested please read the below.

    What we are after:

    Fresh content (please make sure a similar article isn’t already on our site) about:

    • travelling hacks, tips or advice;

    • destination tips or recommendations;

    top 10 lists related to travel.


    It should be:

    • A timeless piece;

    • focused on being useful;

    • at least 500 words;

    • preferably 700 to 2000 words;

    • written in a friendly, blog style that’s fun to read.

    Do you pay?

    Unfortunately not. Backpacker Advice doesn’t have the budget to pay writers.

    So, what do I get in return?

    At the end of our guest posts we include an Author Bio Box (example below), which can contain a picture of you or your company logo, a link to your website or social media page and a short description. The link to your website is extremely valuable for your site’s Google and search engine rankings. A link to a webpage will also generate more traffic to your site, and help you gain more exposure and reach. BackpackerAdvice.com's current reach is around 2,000 unique visitors per day, plus over 3,000 followers on social media.

    Do you allow links in content?

    We allow relevant links in your content – we will be the judge of what a relevant link is. Unless you are willing to pay a sponsorship fee, spam links, affiliate links, or links with promotion jargon (such as “highly recommended website” or “check this out”) are not permitted.

    Should I pitch you the idea before writing my post?

    If you want to, but as long as your content is related to travel and isn’t already covered on our website, it is likely your idea will be accepted.

    How does the acceptance process work?

    We only accept good quality, relevant articles, that meet the requirements above. We will inform you if your piece has been accepted or rejected, either way, usually within a few days. If you haven’t heard back from us in 2 weeks please follow up.

    Can I submit multiple articles?

    Yes, but it is advised you submit one at a time. If your first article is rejected for poor writing style, it is likely your others will be too.

    Will you edit my post?

    We edit for clarity, but are unlikely to make any major changes. We may add links to other articles on our site.

    Do I need to include photos in the content?

    If you wish, but they may not be used. We prefer to source our own images.

    What do I need to agree to?

    By submitting your content, you agree that BackpackerAdvice.com has the full right to publish and edit your content and that you are the author. Furthermore, you agree that once your content is submitted and published on Backpackeradvice.com, you cannot publish your accepted submission on any other site without our permission. Please note it is very easy to find if your content has been published on other sites, and doing so will result in the backlink to your website being removed.
