Fuel Your Wanderlust with a Readly Online Magazine Subscription

13th April 2023

With many of us around the world stuck at home due to Covid-19, unable to fulfil our travel dreams and with plans on hold for the foreseeable future, it is pretty easy to get the feeling that travel is cancelled — for who knows how long.

But there is a way to spark your travel inspiration and escape to other places — as well as cure your boredom — and that’s through travel writing.

For those of you who are UK-based, you may have been spending time recently chilling in your gardens, catching up with your family online, and heading out for your daily exercise. Even though lockdown is starting to be eased in the UK, there’s still not a whole load of entertainment options going on.

So for all you travel-lovers and wanderlust-seekers out there, meet Readly. This is a magazine subscription site, home to thousands upon thousands of different magazines, which you can download direct to your phone, your tablet or your laptop. There will literally be something for everyone.

In terms of travel, though, you’re in luck. Readly boast a ton of travel publications, including Lonely Planet Magazine, Travel + Leisure, and National Geographic Traveller to name but a few. There’s even more niche travel magazines like Backpacker, which gets into the nitty gritty of life on the road, Family Traveller, for those set on intrepid adventures with little ones in tow, and Food Traveller for the more gastronomical globetrotting delights.

And if you are stuck at home, chances are you’ve taken up a new hobby — or maybe you want to keep yourself busy by learning something new. Whatever you’re into, or feel like getting into, there’s almost certainly a magazine for that on Readly.


You get the picture — there are loads! You may even find your new favourite travel magazine amongst all that’s on offer.

Once you’re subscribed, Readly provides unlimited reading of its magazine catalogue (in total it’s around 5,000). After you’re signed up, it’s a simple matter of grabbing the Readly app on your smartphone or tablet, and you’re ready to go.

You’ll be ready to find your favourite magazines, and when you have, you can bookmark them; once they’re bookmarked, you’ll actually get alerts which will notify you when there’s a brand new issue ready to get lost in.

If you and your mates are planning a trip for the future — for whenever travel is “ok” again — one neat plus of Readly is the ability to save articles for later and even share them with your friends. It’ll definitely give you some travel inspiration!

Another cool feature is the family sharing aspect. You’ll be able to share your subscription with up to five family members, which is pretty cool. If you’re stuck at home with your family, having the new issue of National Geographic Traveller to talk about around the table is definitely going to make dinnertime chats more interesting!

Even if you’re apart from your family, being able to share all this awesome content is a great gift — especially at a time like this.
