Work with me
Thanks for stopping by to find out more about Tin Box Traveller and what we do. I’m, Claire, a family travel blogger with nearly 20 years experience in the media and public relations industries.

I’ve always loved writing and have spent my whole career following this passion. Travel blogging came about when I was made redundant while pregnant with my first daughter – it was a way to keep on writing with purpose and bring in my other love, travel.
I now work nearly full-time on my travel blog, while also continuing my career in PR and being a mum who works from home. You can find an overview of all the types of posts I write on my family travel resources page.
The majority of the content on Tin Box Traveller is written by myself, Claire, but I also have a team of freelance writers who cover reviews and press trips for me from time to time.
Take a look at some of our favourite trips and destinations from 2019.
Types of collaboration I’ll consider – please read
I’ll consider reviewing products and experiences, supporting brand campaigns or writing sponsored posts if they are relevant to my family travel blog. I do not write about general parenting topics here but am happy to do so for other websites or blogs.
Please do not be offended if I ask for fair compensation for my time and expenses.
All sponsored posts and reviews will be clearly marked as such in line with ASA rules and I will always share my honest opinions. Please read my disclosure policy.

Expert travel comment in the media and on industry blogs
I’m regularly asked for views and advice that other parents might find helpful when planning travels with their children.
This has recently included lockdown advice for other travelling mums for Teletext Holidays, comments for The Sun about budget meals for caravanning and hiring a car abroad, as well as contributions to holiday park blogs about camping and caravanning meals.
