Whether you’re booking your next holiday, or just looking for some interesting travel-related folk to talk to on Twitter, we’ve scoured the internet for the accounts that you simply must follow.

These are some of our top picks for holiday discounts, top tips, envious travel photography, or those times that you simply want to laugh out loud.

1. Visit Britain @VisitBritain

Stuck for a weekend activity or struggling to entertain the kids? Follow this account for news, ideas, events and things to do around Britain.

2. FCO Travel Advice @fcotravel

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is online every day giving travel advice and assistance to British nationals overseas. Want to know if a destination is safe for travel? Got a question about vaccinations? Need support in an emergency? They’re on hand.


3. Not For Tourists @notfortourists

The ultimate urban neighbourhood guide that shows the local side to a city. Those in the know share cool bars that are off-the-beaten track and away from the tourist crowds (we won’t tell if you don’t).

5. Heather Poole @Heather_Poole

Heather is a flight attendant and regularly shares funny anecdotes about life in the skies. Follow her for tips on how not to irritate your flight attendant and get amusing titbits from her blog.


6. Helen Yuet Ling Pang @foodieguide

Food fans will love this collection of restaurant reviews from around the world – Helen’s also currently making an app, too. Great for inspiration on where to eat on that next city break.

7. Frugal Traveler @frugaltraveler

The NY Times Frugal Traveler is all about “high style on a low budget”. So if you’re travelling to Toulouse on the cheap or wondering how to get bargain hotels in Berlin, you’ll find something here to help.


7. Sleepy Commuters @SleepyCommuters

Quite simply an entire feed devoted to people asleep on trains. Have you been snapped having a nap?

8. TLF Travel Alerts @TLFTravelAlerts

One for the Londoners. If you’re fed up of delays on the London Underground, this parody account shares a completely made up but brilliantly funny side of travel within the capital. But if you’re looking for real travel information, you’ll find TFL’s (the correct acronym) official roster of Twitter accounts here.


9. Holiday Discount Centre @holiday_centre

Of course, we couldn’t make a list of useful travel accounts without including our own. We can be found tweeting the latest and cheapest travel deals and offers on the web, as well as the occasional internet funny – if you’re reading, drop us a line and say hello!

10. Delicious Baby @deliciousbaby

Travelling with kids can be stressful, but this tweeter and blogger takes some of the pain out of the process. Find advice on how to holiday with the little ones, including  tips on coping with that tricky first flight.

Now over to you.

Who have we missed?
