The Travel Insider

David Rowell (The Travel Insider) no longer flies as much as he formerly did, when a corporate traveler and subsequently after founding and growing a travel company to become one of the half dozen largest travel wholesalers specializing in travel to New Zealand (where he is from) and Australia.  Instead, he now writes iconoclastically about the industry, its quirks and foibles, and its future.

He writes something over a quarter million words every year about travel and travel-related technology, with a free weekly Travel Insider newsletter and associated blog articles, and has been doing so since 2001.  He’s been quoted in various dailies and magazines, sometimes is featured on the radio, and occasionally appears on national and international television.
