How to Get Free Travel Brochures Delivered Straight to Your Door
Are you planning your next vacation but feeling overwhelmed by the multitude of options available? Perhaps you’re looking for inspiration or detailed information about a particular destination. Whatever your travel needs may be, one valuable resource that can help you make informed decisions is a travel brochure. And the best part is, you can get these brochures delivered straight to your door for free. In this article, we’ll explore how you can easily obtain free travel brochures by mail.
Visit Tourism Websites
One of the simplest ways to get free travel brochures is by visiting tourism websites. Most popular tourist destinations have official websites that offer free brochures as a way to promote their attractions and services. These websites often have a dedicated section where you can request brochures to be mailed directly to your address.
When visiting tourism websites, look for options such as “Request Brochure” or “Order Free Travel Guides.” Fill out the necessary information, such as your name, address, and email, and select the specific brochures or destinations that interest you. It’s important to provide accurate details so that the brochures reach you without any issues.
Contact Tourism Boards
Another effective way to obtain free travel brochures is by contacting tourism boards directly. Tourism boards are responsible for promoting their respective regions and often have an extensive collection of brochures available for distribution.
To find contact information for tourism boards, start by conducting an online search using keywords like “tourism board” followed by the name of your desired destination. Once you find their website or contact details, reach out via email or phone and request free travel brochures to be sent to your address.
Attend Travel Shows and Expos
Travel shows and expos are fantastic opportunities not only to gather information but also to receive free travel brochures in person. These events bring together various travel agencies, tourism boards, and other industry professionals under one roof.
Before attending a travel show or expo, check their website or social media pages for details on participating exhibitors. Make a list of the destinations or companies you’re interested in and visit their booths during the event. Many exhibitors will have brochures readily available for visitors to take home, providing you with a physical copy of the information you need.
Sign Up for Travel Newsletters
Lastly, signing up for travel newsletters can be an excellent way to receive free travel brochures by mail. Many travel companies and websites offer newsletters that provide subscribers with exclusive deals, updates on new destinations, and relevant travel information.
When subscribing to these newsletters, be sure to provide your mailing address along with your email. This way, you’ll not only receive digital content but also have the opportunity to receive physical brochures in your mailbox.
In conclusion, getting free travel brochures delivered straight to your door is easier than ever before. By visiting tourism websites, contacting tourism boards directly, attending travel shows and expos, and signing up for travel newsletters, you can access a wealth of information about your desired destinations without spending a dime. So go ahead and start planning your dream vacation with the help of these informative brochures.

Travel Brochures: Highlighting the Setting of a Story
- Resources & Preparation
- Instructional Plan
- Related Resources
Imagine the images and detailed descriptions of the places depicted in a book you've read recently—whether a far-away land, a historical location, or a city just like the one you live in. Settings transport readers to these places, inviting them to consider what it would be like to visit these locations personally. This lesson plan takes that imaginary tourism one step further by asking students to create a travel brochure for locations in texts that they have read. The activity requires students to think about and collect the details mentioned in the text that should be highlighted and conduct additional research on the location as they design their own brochures. This lesson plan uses Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko as the example; however, any text in any genre would work well.
Travel Brochure Rubric : Use this rubric to evaluate the organization, ideas, conventions, and graphics of travel brochures students have created. Recording the Setting Bookmark : Students use this reproducible sheet, which can be cut into bookmarks, to record details about a story's setting as the read. Printing Press : Use this online tool to create a newspaper, brochure, booklet, or flyer. Students choose a layout, add content, and then print out their work.
From Theory to Practice
Often, students end a unit of study by writing a traditional research paper. While this is a good way for students to summarize what they have learned, it may not be the most interesting. Beyond that, it frequently results in summary and rote repetition rather than deep critical thinking. In this lesson plan, students go through the research process, but will take that information and turn it into a travel brochure. In her English Journal article, Janet Northrup says, "Unlike a research paper that usually has two readers, the teacher and the student, a pamphlet encourages ownership of a topic, a topic which each student knows will be shared with (and taught to) others. Also, class members develop research skills. They learn how to find information, develop a sense of voice and audience, write an arguable thesis statement, select relevant facts, create an interesting layout, and edit carefully." This project will meet the needs of both students and the teacher. Further Reading

- create a travel brochure that incorporates research skills and text details.
- Where did they go?
- How did their families decide to go to these places?

- If students have experience with travel guides and travel brochures, invite them to share what they remember about them.
- Explain that the class is going to create travel brochure about one of the texts that students have read, focusing primarily on the setting of the story.
- Display a variety of travel brochures. Provide time for students to look through the brochures, in groups, pairs or individually. Ask them to pay attention to layout, the highlighted features, illustrations, and the style of the included text.
- Are there maps? photos? diagrams? other illustrations?
- What kind of language and vocabulary is used?
- How is text presented? paragraphs? bulleted lists?
- Are there specific places highlighted? What kind?
- Ask the students if they would like to visit any of the places in the brochures. If the students answer affirmatively, ask them to share what in the brochures made them want to visit. If students answer negatively, ask them to share why they would not like to visit that locale.
- Have students brainstorm what make an effective travel brochure. Record their responses on the board or on chart paper. Some answers may be the pictures, the supporting text, the quotes from visitors, and so forth.
- Explain that while the pictures and photos are added bonuses on travel brochures, the text plays an important role in persuading people to visit a certain place.

- When all of the students have selected a text for the project, invite them to revisit the text to look for examples and passages about the setting.
- Demonstrate how to use the Recording the Setting Bookmark to note the examples from the text. Display the example bookmark and discuss the details that are included.
- Pass out copies of the Recording the Setting Bookmark for students to use.
- Give students the rest of the session to collect details from their books.
- As students examine their texts for examples, circulate through the room. This is a good time to take observational notes or ask students questions as they are working.
- Once students have found examples from their text about the setting, explain that it’s time for them to conduct research on the setting using the Internet, reference materials, magazines, newspapers, etc. Students can visit Notes from the Road and Travel & Cultures for information on many areas of the world. If the students are using a Science Fiction or Fantasy text, they may have a more difficult time with the research. In that case, they should rely more on their findings in the text.
- Invite students to record their research findings on the Things to Include in a Travel Brochure handout. Share with them the example research notes .
- As students are researching, help as needed.
- Briefly demonstrate the Printing Press for students. Show the students how they can use the tool to create their finished product. Place students’ emphasis on thinking about the content for the brochures and flyers, as the Printing Press will make the process of making the final product a simpler one.
- You can also share with the students an example setting brochure of a book that the class has read so they can see what they can include in their own brochures.
- After students have gathered clues from their texts as well as completed research on their setting, they are ready to begin working on creating their travel brochures, highlighting the setting of a text using the Printing Press .
- Assist students as needed.
- Remind students that they cannot save their work on the Printing Press so they will need to work diligently on their project.
- Once all of the students have completed their brochures using the Printing Press , allow time for the students to share their brochures with the rest of the class.
- Assess the students work using the rubric .
- Instead of making a travel brochure about their setting, students could design a postcard highlighting one of the locations mentioned in their text. Students can publish this postcard using the Postcard Creator .
- Pairing the brochures with the text they accompany would make a good classroom or library display.
Student Assessment / Reflections
- For formal assessment, use the rubric . Additionally, you can ask students to freewrite on the following reflective question: After completing this activity, what role do you think the setting plays in a text? Will you pay more attention to the setting now that you have completed this activity?

Make Your Own Travel Brochure For Any Country
This exploration is for all ages, as the colored smilies show. You can make travel brochures about all sorts of places with your whole family together!
These printable travel brochures are part of a geography exploration that is featured in several of the Layers of Learning units. The first time you are introduced is in People & Planet: Maps & Globes , the very first geography unit , but they are also used in many other geography units. Layers of Learning has hands-on experiments, explorations, and fun printables in every unit of this family-friendly curriculum. Learn more about Layers of Learning .
Travel brochures are a great way for kids to record information about beautiful places around the world. With the internet, it’s really easy to find travel information, but it’s still more fun to search it out in a library book, and it’s even more fun still to go find a travel agency. They have lots of free full-color brochures and cool insider information. And when you make your own travel brochure, you’re sure to remember all those fun facts you learn as you put them in one place.
Step 1: Library Research
Before you begin exploring, read a book or two about the place you are learning about. Atlases or geography books containing all the countries of the world are a great starting place, and you can also search for books about the specific continent, country, state, province, region, or landmark you are focusing on from your library. Here are some suggestions for books we really like. The colored smilies above each book tell you what age level they’re recommended for.
As Amazon affiliates, the recommended books and products below kick back a tiny percentage of your purchase to us. It doesn’t affect your cost and it helps us run our website. We thank you!

Step 2: Travel Brochure
All you need to make this is the free printable travel brochure and any art supplies you want to use. You can print pictures from online, cut some out of brochures you got from a travel agency, or draw your own.
Kids can choose a place, find out all about it, and then create their own travel brochure describing what it’s like, the fun things to do there, and why they would choose it for a destination spot. There are also blanks for drawing or cutting and gluing pictures of their vacation spot.
Step 3: Show What You Know
Everyone can show off and share their destinations and brochures with each other. You can even make a few copies of your work and distribute them to the members of your family.
Additional Layers are extra activities you can do or tangents you can take off on. You will find them in the sidebars of each Layers of Learning unit . They are optional, so just choose what interests you.
If you want to get really creative you could even use it as a history activity. (Imagine you were a European getting ready to travel to America for the first time during its colonization. Maybe you’re a knight heading to the Holy Land for a crusade. Perhaps you’d like to visit the Egyptian pyramids during their construction phase.) Pick a time period and a place and you’ve got a history activity as well.
Make a map of your destination to go along with your brochure. You can draw the map on the back side of the brochure so it is double-sided.
Video a travel commercial to accompany your brochure. Use it to convince others to travel to the destination on vacation. How convincing can you be?
