The Sunday Telegraph is to upgrade its travel coverage with the
launch next week of a dedicated pull-out travel section. A spokesperson
said the paper is separating out its travel section in response to
demand from readers and advertisers.
The supplement, which makes its debut on 16 January, replaces the travel
pages which were previously an integral part of the Sunday Review. It
will be edited by Graham Boynton who also edits the Daily Telegraph’s
Saturday travel section.
It is the Sunday Telegraph’s first new supplement since The Planet was
lauched for children last year. It promises a diet of adventure travel
coverage along with more traditional stories about cruises and organised
’We will play to the traditional interests of our affluent readers with
stories about interesting destinations, as well as reviews of new places
to go and new ways of travel,’ said a Telegraph spokesperson. ’The
single most important distinguishing feature will be the degree of
interactivity with readers. We will be running a letters page,
competitions and reader to reader spots.’
While the previous section was only two or three pages, the new
supplement will be at least 16 pages. ’It will be much more
reader-friendly than before, with consumer advice and coverage of
shortbreak weekend travel for the first time,’ the spokesperson said.
