Established in 2009 by industry veteran, Mike Heard, Travel Monitor is now in its ninth year of operation. Christine Kane and Lisa Monk began working as co-Editors of Travel Monitor in 2012, and Christine became owner and publisher in December that same year.
In 2018 Travel Monitor has welcomed professional journalist Katrina Holden to the team as Editor-at-Large, joining colleagues Christine, Lisa Monk and Deborah Dickson-Smith, a highly-regarded travel journalist and award-winning publisher who has been working with Travel Monitor since 2016.
Our team continues to grow – with professional writers and editors at the helm, and a slew of travel writers and contributors on tap delivering daily content with a mix of breaking news, industry news, and sometimes frivolity – to inform, and to lighten the working day.

The daily news is delivered to a subscriber base of over 2,000 individuals, and a further 5-8,000 readers receive our newsletter via dissemination through their internal intranet.
