About us

We exist to help you connect to the real side of travel – the stories, people, culture and places that leave an impact long after you return home.

What is The Real Word?

The Real Word from Trafalgar, is your one stop shop for all things travel advice, news and inspiration. We want to help you discover all that is real in the world of travel, so we create stories that we think you’ll find genuinely useful, interesting or insightful when planning your next great escape.

For us, travel is so much more than a ‘been there, done that’ experience. Instead, it’s education, enlightenment, understanding, and genuine connection. It’s about the people you meet, and the way an experience makes you feel. And it’s about feeling informed and confident in every travel decision that you make.

So, if you want to get to know the real side of travel, why not stick around for a bit?
