Welcome to BalkanTravellers advertising web page!

BalkanTravellers.com is a bilingual (English and Bulgarian) portal about travelling to and from the Balkans. It offers a combination of professional journalism and photography and in-depth practical information and interactive content.

For people based outside of the region, BalkanTravellers.com provides a free, insightful guide to the most remarkable and often unknown tourist destinations in Bulgaria and on the Balkans.

To people from the region, it serves as an inspiring first step in their trips abroad, as well as a trustworthy and up-to-date guide to neighbouring countries.

BalkanTravellers.com is guided by three key principles: to promote the art of travelling, to be practically useful and to offer interesting, objective and reliable information.
Why advertise in BalkanTravellers web site?

Balkantravellers.com is an excellent advertisement platform for all businesses, related to tourism. The editorial content of the site provokes the readers’ interest towards the destinations and the information about tourist agencies, transportation, hotels, restaurants, trade chains and other businesses in the tourism service sphere, comes as a useful addition to that content.

The portal also provides a natural environment for the promotion of real estate companies. By introducing the cultural context of the places it presents, BalkanTravellers.com is a key source of information for people who have a long-term interest in settling in a particular town or region in the Balkans.

BalkanTravellers.com offers the opportunity to present your business in a modern, dynamic and stylish environment through interactive advertisement.

Modern, dynamic and stylish, the site is a successful framework for the branding of companies who want to be associated with movement, creativity, innovation, a taste for life, as well as those who want to be seen as symbols of a certain place.

With its modern concept and excellent quality, BalkanTravellers.com fills a wide gap in both national and regional media on the Balkans. In doing that, the portal has the potential to become one of the leading on-line magazines that support the growing tourist industry in the region.

Advertising opportunities

The portal has, at most, six banners per page. Because of the variety of sections and destinations it covers, it allows the advertisement to be placed precisely in the most appropriate and reinforcing context.

The site’s system allows for the display of banners based on the country from where the site is being accessed. In this way, advertisers have the option of determining the geographical scope of their advertisement.

Besides banners, the portal offers the chance for advertisements through a photograph, a short text or a link in certain practically-oriented sections.

The weekly newsletter, which will be launched, free of charge, on January 1, 2008, is another, more aggressive possibility to reach customers.
