We are Marriott Bonvoy Traveler, the online travel magazine and editorial voice of Marriott Bonvoy, a portfolio of extraordinary hotel brands and incredible travel experiences.

We tell stories about the power of travel. We believe that travel creates connections, opens minds, expands boundaries, and creates memories.

We share itineraries for the best weekend getaways, conscious travel tips, the vision behind iconic hotels and immersive articles that inspire and transport any kind of traveler. 

Our stories are the spark to explore the best of the world’s greatest destinations, guiding you to the places that only locals know, revealing the unique experiences that bring a place to life and make you feel welcome.

We are Marriott Bonvoy Traveler. Good travel starts here.


If you’re interested in writing for Traveler, please note that we are unable to accept cold pitches; our content needs are directly tied to internal strategy. We create stories to support our seasonal editorial calendar and identified trends, as well as to support Marriott Bonvoy marketing regions, brands, loyalty initiatives and other facets of the company.

Very occasionally, we will put out calls for pitches when a specific need arises, and which you will be notified of, once your portfolio has been reviewed and you are added to our team of contributors.

If you are interested in joining our writer pool, please email us with a brief bio of your experience in travel writing, and include a link to your Contently profile at: Traveler@marriott.com
