New this month

--- New subcategory under Trip Planning/Activities: We have added a new subcategory titled "Learning Tours" defined as retreats, life workshops, history, architecture and planning. If you feel that this subcategory more accurately reflects your services, you can change your subcategory by logging into your account, "modify listing" and change it in the drop down menu. If you do not see this subcategory for your particular country in the Classifieds, the option will still be available when you log into your account. This just means we do not have any companies listed under this subcategory for your country yet!

--- The recent press about Slow Travel means more traffic to your ad!

--- A chance to provide content to Slow Travel!

We are always looking for new travel articles on the SlowTrav.com website! If you would like to write something about your area or some other aspect of travel, please contact Pauline. We look for articles with good information for travelers. It does not have to be written like a guidebook; we prefer personal articles talking about the wonderful things to do in your area, or some of the food specialties, or the art found in the area, or outdoor activities. Any topic that you are happy to write about and that our readers will enjoy.

We include an "About the Author" section at the bottom of the article which can have a brief description of your business and a link to your website. As you know, search engines love "deep links" like this on good content pages, so your website will benefit.

If you would like to write something for us, please contact Pauline with an outline of what you would like to write, so she can be sure it does not duplicate something we already have.

Now you can call us if you have any questions, comments or concerns. Our toll free number is (800) 975-6760. If you are calling from outside the US, our local number is (310) 280-5239. Charisse usually answers this phone and is in the office Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm PT (Los Angeles). At other times you can leave a message and she will get back to you.

Special Offers can be posted for free with a GOLD listing!

If you have a GOLD listing, you get a Special Offer listing for no extra charge. Click "Manage Listings" in the Classifieds heading, login, and you will see the Special Offer option. You can have one Special Offer for each GOLD listing. Special Offers are displayed on the home page of the Classifieds and on the main pages for each category (a rotating list is displayed on the page). A Special Offer is a good way to advertise current vacancies or to announce any sales, or use them to point out special features for your business. Be sure to use this feature wisely to make special announcements and to delete outdated offers.

Coming Soon - direct credit card payment!

We are no longer accepting MoneyGram or Western Union payments. However, we are making progress on being able to take credit cards directly on the site (not through PayPal)! I will email you when we have this new feature.
