Why SupportSupporter BenefitsJoin Here


Becoming a Travel Insider Supporting Member is easy and quick.  Simply choose your preferred level of membership support from the range of options below, click its button, then enter some simple billing information.  You’ll get immediate member status and access.

Set Your Own Level of Support

The amounts shown below are the requested minimums for each category of support.  You are very welcome to increase this to any amount you wish.

That option appears after you’ve selected the general category and frequency of support, below.

Payment Methods Accepted

You can use your choice of most credit cards; the process is handled through the “Stripe” processing company and we never see your credit card details.

Paypal is also available as an option.

If you’re sending in a single one-time contribution, there’s also an option to send in a check, or bank wire, or Venmo or other funds transfer method.  (Some people have reported difficulty finding this option, so I’ve created a short video to step you through that process.) If you wish to set up annual or quarterly contributions, those options necessarily use credit cards or Paypal.

Options for One-time, Annual, or Quarterly Support

In most cases, we offer you three choices – you can either choose to help with a single one-time contribution, or you can choose an ongoing level of support, either once a year, or once a quarter.  Simply click on the option that reflects your preference.  If you choose annual or quarterly support, it is very easy to cancel should you subsequently wish (here’s the cancel page but it won’t appear until you are a logged in member).

Special Earmarked Support

If you want to send in a one-time one-off contribution for a specific purpose, you can do so here.  This is particularly useful if you are already a Travel Insider Supporter, allowing you to add a separate one-off contribution on special occasions without interfering with your regular membership status.

No matter what you choose, thank you – and we’ll thank you some more on the other side of this process too, of course!  See you there…..

Free Weekly Emailed Newsletter

Usually weekly, since 2001, we publish a roundup of travel and travel related technology developments, and often a feature article too.

You’ll stay up to date with the latest and greatest (and cautioned about the worst) developments.  You’ll get information to help you choose and become a better informed traveler and consumer, how to best use new technologies, and at times, will learn of things that might entertain, amuse, annoy or even outrage you.

We’re very politically incorrect and love to point out the unrebutted hypocrisies and unfairnesses out there.

This is all entirely free (but you’re welcome to voluntarily contribute!), and should you wish to, easy to cancel.

We’re not about to spam you any which way and as you can see, we don’t ask for any information except your email address and how often you want to receive our newsletters.

Newsletter Signup - Welcome!

Thanks for choosing to receive our newsletters.  We hope you’ll enjoy them and become a long-term reader, and maybe on occasion, add comments and thoughts of your own to the newsletters and articles we publish.

We’ll send you a confirmation email some time in the next few days to confirm your email address, and when you reply to that, you’ll then be on the list.

All the very best for now, and welcome to the growing “Travel Insider family”.
