Do you have a traveller's tale to tell? We would love to hear from you. Just give us the details and we'll transform your story into a stunning piece of editorial and publish it here on The Big Bus...

The Big Bus tour and travel guide is all about tour and travel ideas and inspiration, and our destination stories, city guides and tour reviews are written by travellers – for travellers. Admittedly, most of our regular contributors are also professional writers, but you don’t have to be a professional to share your traveller’s tale with the world – let us do it with you!

We’re looking for readers who would like to share a travel story. Perhaps it’s a destination you want to recommend, or a particular tour or holiday activity that you really loved. Just answer a few simple questions about your experience and we’ll do the rest.

If you’re a budding writer and would like to provide lots of detail – please do. If you’re the strong, silent type and only want to provide the basics – that’s fine also – but we do need more than one word answers. Try to provide a couple of sentences per question.

Once your story is drafted, we’ll email you a copy to read through before publication. Once the story is published, we’ll provide a link for you to share with family and friends, and on your social media networks.

Here’s an example of a guest contributor’s story – Tips for visiting the Hunter Valley Gardens.

Let’s begin – and please be assured we won’t share your personal details or add them to any mailing list.

That’s it! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected]. We’ll be in touch shortly.
