Marco Polo Spiral Guides & Handbooks

What kind of traveller are you? Create your perfect trip with brand new Travel Handbooks and Spiral Guides from Marco Polo


Marco Polo, the fastest growing travel brand in the UK, is launching two brand new series, to provide the perfect companion to each and every trip.  Alongside Marco Polo travel guides, maps and phrasebooks, Marco Polo Handbooks and Spiral Guides will ensure that you get the most from your break, whatever kind of traveller you are.


Whether you are a planner who enjoys researching in advance and likes in-depth, highly visual coverage of each destination; the type who likes to live like a native and experience local haunts, or a time-poor traveller who only has a few days and doesn’t want to miss a thing, Marco Polo has the guide for you.


Marco Polo Travel Handbooks


Launching in February 2015, MARCO POLO TRAVEL HANDBOOKS are aimed at travellers wanting in-depth coverage of a destination, the first travel guides to offer infographics – a fun and highly visual way of presenting information.


Key features include:


 ‘Do You Feel Like’ – fun suggestions to help you experience the variety of a destination, whether you are into fantastic views, impressive museums or atmospheric locations.

 ‘Insider Tips’ – giving you the inside track on what to see and where to go.

 In-depth information - all the things that make a trip unforgettable from eating & drinking, sightseeing, shopping, museums & galleries, festivals etc.  

 3D cut outs of key sights on distinctive fold out pages and specially created tours to explore on foot, by bicycle, car or public transport.


Marco Polo Spiral Guides


MARCO POLO SPIRAL GUIDES, also brand new and launching in February 2015, are ultra-practical itinerary-based guides for those travellers who have little time to prepare for a trip, but don’t want to miss a thing! The unique spiral binding is ideal for travellers on the go. These travellers want to know the most important things in a nutshell and love all things practical and easy to use.


Key features include:


 The Magazine - to inform and inspire, setting the scene and getting under the skin of a destination to discover what makes it tick.

 Finding Your Feet - practical tips to help you have a problem-free trip, from your arrival at the airport to going back home.

 Don’t Miss the ‘Must Sees’ - Top 10, Don’t Miss and At Your Leisure are dedicated to the sights in each region, quickly letting you choose what you absolutely must (and want to!) see, and telling you what’s less important.  

 Walks & Tours - walking, driving and cycling tours that allow you to experience your destination from a completely different perspective.

 10 Reasons to Come Back Again - what makes the place magical and why you should plan a return trip.
