In all honesty, free travel brochures can be informative, inspiring, and inviting. They can also be poorly disguised sales pitches that do more harm than good. As a travel agent, I've seen more than my fair share of travel brochures (our office gets several a day) and decided to share with you the best ones out there today:
Travelguidesfree.com Talk about a concise name for a website, huh? They provide you with a pdf file of the brochure itself, which is really nice if you want to look at a half dozen or so. Their brochures are professionally done, and all include recommended routes, history, and a brief synopsis of highlights along the way. One unfortunate aspect is you have to provide personal information before gaining access to the travel brochures.
Travelfish.org. If you want travel brochures for Southeast Asia, check out Travelfish, which is one of my all time favorite websites for travel in Asia. They provide up to date brochures and travel guides to Laor, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and Singapore.
Travelinformation.com. The Travelfish equivalent for the United States. Just scroll down the (incredibly) long homepage and select dozens of different brochures across the country. No where else can you find such a varied selection of destinations that can be downloaded at one time. Highly recommended.
The Man In Seat 61. This website (seat61.com) is the definitive website for train travel. From California to Calcutta, they've got you covered, with full descriptions of itineraries, expected ticket prices and travel times.
Use these free brochure travel guides as a way to gain a deeper understanding of your trip prior to your departure.
