Created by an international team of professional travel writers, the Need To Know Club is an environment that allows us to share a selection of handpicked places and itineraries from around the world that we recommend without hesitation.
Our elegant, easy-to-navigate website showcases our authentic reviews, which are born out of the experience of pounding the streets in locations from San Francisco to Sydney and everywhere in between. Whether your trip is already planned or you’re looking for inspiration, we will point you to the particular, the peculiar and the downright pleasurable – it might be a fish and chip shack, a second-hand bookshop or a well-hidden cocktail lounge. Anything and everything that piques our interest is fair game.
We believe that charging a modest membership fee is the fairest way to make recommendations from the trusted few available to those who value expert opinion. We don’t run adverts, we don’t have sponsored content, we don’t sell tickets, we don’t chase people around the internet and we certainly don’t harvest personal information. The membership fee is our only income.
We have decided to operate as a responsible, social enterprise – we donate a significant proportion of our income to charities that we care about and, after paying our taxes, we share the remainder evenly between ourselves.
Our approach bucks the current trend; some might even call it old school. We prefer to think we’ve come full circle and what may have looked backward is now the only way forward. However you describe it, we like to think that expertise still has a place in the world and is something we should cherish. If that appeals to you, why don’t you sign up and become a member today? We’d like to think you won’t be disappointed.
