Pitch window open until June 18!
Budget Travel is accepting pitches starting today and continuing through June 18.
We are looking for pieces from 1000-1500 words detailing travel in America in 2021. Our content is focused on finding great deals, traveling smart, traveling post-pandemic, and finding great things to do across the USA.
To pitch us, please include a short (one tweet length please!) description of your idea, and a short bio of you as a writer. Pitches should be emailed to pitch at budgettravel dot com.
Accepted pitches will be responded to the week of June 21. Unfortunately, due to volume, we cannot respond to every pitch received.
