20 Travel Content Creators Cruising for a Collab

Nicole P. Dunford

 

Sandy beaches. Snow-capped mountains. Romantic sunsets. Creepy crawlies. Daredevil activities that may leave you thinking, “Oh hell no,” but also low-key longing to give said adrenaline-inducing things a try.

If you follow any travel pages on your social media, this (and so much more) is what you’ll come across. Travel content induces feelings of “I need to live a little”. It is a source of inspiration for your next trip. A glimpse into what else is out there. The other side of life.

In this roundup, we’ve got a whole host of travel content creators bringing us along on their travel escapades. Each one smoothly integrates their other interests with their love for travel. Fashion and travel? Yes, please. Music and travel? Pump it up! Food and travel? Say no more. We’re there.

To top it all off, all these travel content creators are amped and ready for a Collab. Let’s dive in!

Kicking off our list is a luxury travel content creator who loves showcasing the different cultures of the places she travels to.

Cacinda Maloney – @pointsandtravel

Cacinda Maloney IG content | Travel creators on Afluencer

Based in Arizona, USA, Dr. Cacinda Maloney is all about travel and wears many hats! This Doctor-turned-full-time-Travel-Expert (so that’s Dr. Travel Expert to you) is the owner and operator of a travel and lifestyle blog – Points and Travel. She’s also a brand ambassador and a digital content creator.

Content

Cacinda is a self-proclaimed knower of the difference between luxury travel worthy of the high price tag and places that are just plain expensive. Her travel days look a little something like this – adventure and culture by day, smart luxury at night!

She documents all this perfectly in her blog – which is meticulously organized to help readers find posts by destination.

Over on her Instagram, you’ll find beautiful pictures of her travels. Cacinda is always sure to leave a good description of the captured moment – even if there are grizzly bears nearby!

Her Facebook page mostly features attention-grabbing images with links to recipes, her blog posts, and itineraries. On Twitter, you can find the same format, but never a repeat of posts. In total, Cacinda has over 164k followers across her social media pages. As a Brand, you may want a luxury travel content creator who knows how to adapt their content for each social media platform – and Dr. Cacinda is certainly one of them.


Emily Inson – @thealmostvanlife

Emily Inson Instagram winter posts

Emily – a single female doing whatever she wants – is an advocate for people to do whatever makes them happy! She is also a social media manager and body-positive content creator sharing her journey of self-discovery. Early in 2021, she made the decision to buy a camper van and now travels throughout North America with her dog/ sidekick/ co-pilot @martytheminidoxie and hasn’t looked back!

Content

Whichever video you choose to watch first on Emily’s social media pages, be it Facebook, Instagram, or TikTok, one of the first things you’ll notice is Emily’s amazing personality. You really can’t help but smile.

Another awesome thing about Emily’s travel content is how real it is. Whether she’s showing you coin-operated showers at a campsite; getting work done while parked in a Walmart parking lot; or simply showing you “a day in the life” you can be sure that Emily is going to give it to you straight.

When it comes to Collabs, Emily is not afraid to put herself out there. She’s even asked her followers to help her become a travel partner for Airbnb. We love a content creator who has no shame in scoring in the Collab game! Did we mention she has a terrific engagement rate of 5.3%? We love Emily’s approach to her life and her travel content creator career. You don’t want to miss out on this one.


Joanna Niles – @joannaen

Joanna also owns @envoyageboutique and @envoyageswim – offering boho-luxe fashion and quality swimwear. Joanna is clearly busy but loves to highlight the art of balancing life.

Content

Joanna’s target market is professional millennial women who love to travel. As a professional herself, this clearly makes sense. Through her content, from the Caribbean to Paris, you get the sense that Joanna is just living her best life.

Can we talk about her fashion posts for a second? Her chosen outfits are simple, chic, and sophisticated. She does a great job of posting outfit details, as well as giving us some vacation looks too.

If you’re looking for video content, you can find loads of it mainly on her TikTok and YouTube accounts. However, it’s a vibe no matter where you follow Joanna. She’s catering to the professional woman and they love it. With a fantastic engagement rate of 2.8% and a total following of over 11.6k across Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and YouTube, this micro travel content creator is definitely one to watch.

Hailing from Florida, USA, Kelly Stilwell is not only a travel content creator but a food content creator as well. She’s visited over 30 countries and has a goal to “bring food and travel together through recipes so you can have a taste before you go”.

Content

For more travel content, head over to Kelly’s Instagram page where you will find beautiful scenery (and hunger-inducing food) from Colorado in the USA to Rome in Italy and everywhere in between.

Over on her blog, you will also find international cuisine and more details about her trips. What Kelly also offers, however, is a service that helps you plan your travel itineraries based on places she’s actually visited. That’s right, her followers get first-hand info from a pro who will advise them on the best places to go so they don’t have to waste their time. Nothing’s better than a first-hand account!

As far as Collabs go, Kelly is an ambassador for Rocky Mountaineer, a Canadian rail-tour company based in Vancouver that operates luxury scenic trains. If you’re a brand looking for an influencer whose offering is a sweet balance between food and travel, Kelly’s your gal.

Peanut butter and jelly. Mac and cheese. Tom and Jerry… some things were just meant to be. The perfect pair. This content creator pairs travel with photography – what a combo! And drone photography no less. Have to say, her pictures are epic. You are bound to catch the wanderlust holy ghost while scrolling through her Instagram page.

Kira is passionate about coaching her followers on how to travel; how to make money traveling (love it); and how to travel cheaply or for free. This clearly shines through her content. Amongst her travel content, she always makes sure to post opportunities for remote work, travel tips, and even travel competitions that will cover most of your expenses.

It’s no wonder Kira has over 20.8k followers on Facebook and Instagram combined, she’s a pro at providing valuable content for other solo travelers and digital nomad hopefuls.

“Radiating joy and light this season.”

“Choose happiness. Choose it every single day.”

“When you start realizing that every day is potentially an adventure or opportunity, who knows the extent of what great things may come your way when you open yourself up to them.”

If travel, food, wellness, and positivity are right up your brand’s alley, Lauren is the lifestyle and travel content creator you need to Collab with!
