Who are The Globetrotter Guys?

The Globetrotter Guys is a gay travel and lifestyle blog which was set up in January 2018.

The Globetrotter Guys is run by Sion and Ben, a married gay couple from the UK who have been together for over ten years and share a passion for travelling the world.

They have partnered with many different  companies and brands around the world to help them either promote LGBTQ+ related services, or enter the LGBTQ+ market.

Ben has worked in the travel industry for over 12 years. He started his career winning awards as the best young Modern Apprentice in his first year, to spending the last 3 years as Store Manager of an international high street travel agent in Manchester.

Sion has worked in the professional services industry for the last 6 years, including 18 months working for a charity helping young people into employment. Prior to this, he studied a Masters in Physics at the University of Manchester.

This combination of skills and experience has allowed them to grow their blog and social media presence quickly, understand the travel industry and provide exceptional service to their clients.

They understand the LGBTQ+ travel market (estimated to be worth $3.6 trillion globally) and ensure all collaborations they work on are relevant to their audience.

The Globetrotter Guys have seen strong growth, gained positive feedback on their work so far, and have ambitious plans for the future!

We are doing this through sharing our own experiences, producing LGBTQ+ guides to destinations and interviewing people from all around the world to find out what its really like to be LGBTQ+ in their countries.

We hope to inspire, educate, promote safety and get more people travelling!

Laura Johnston – Fathom Communications, PR & Social Media

Sion and Ben were amazing to work with. They were reliable, super quick to reply and very professional. They brought creative ideas and incredibly valuable insight to their panel regarding LGBTQ+ representation in travel. They were well prepared ahead of the event and spoke with confidence and expertise on the day. I would not hesitate to work with them again or recommend them to anyone else looking for LGBTQ+ industry experts to speak at their event.

“Working with them was an absolute pleasure. We organise private tours in Europe and received Sion and Ben during our busiest time of year. Their attitude was perfect, they were always friendly, respectful and kind. We could tell straight away that they were talented and responsible professionals. We could not have been happier with the super extensive and complete blog post they wrote about us. We would be delighted to work with them again and definitely recommend them to any companies who want an extra push in social media.”
Marta Sastre Haro – Content Manager – Rainbow Gay Tours

“The Globetrotter Guys are fantastic to work with. They’re professional, creative and energetic influencers who helped us showcase our open-minded city to their engagera audience. We were also pleased to have them as speakers at our travel symposium and they delivered great insight to those in attendance. We are thrilled to have had them visit us in Stockholm.”
Uwern Jong – Stockholm LGBT, Managing Director Boutique Marketing, and Editor-in-Chief OutThere

“As a general rule, we don’t work with most online travel bloggers, but given we include the LGBT community in our client mix and The Globetrotter Guys unique approach, I decided to make an exception. They were great, respectful guests and fun to work with. So far, I have been happy with the results we have seen from their profile on Costa Rica which includes our hotel and travel company. I would recommend The Globetrotter Guys to any tourism business looking to connect with the LGBT community.
Colin Brownlee – Owner Hotel Banana Azul, Caribe Fun Tours and Click Ass Marketing

Carla Tessio – Senior Social Media Executive UK

“We are very grateful for the recent work of The Globetrotter Guys. Not only did Ben & Sion’s work lead to immediate inquiries and reservations it was comprehensive and well-written.
Sion & Ben were also my guests, they are a friendly, kind and intelligent couple. We would welcome them back every time as their skill and expertise in the blogging world is first rate.”

Statistics: Social Media and Website Traffic

When it comes to social media, we have focused on Instagram given it is one of the fastest growing platforms with over 800 million users and the highest average engagement rate. This has proven to produce the best results for the businesses we have worked with.

We place equal focus on website traffic given that blog content is evergreen and provides engagement for a long period of time (indefinitely in theory).
