List of travel chats on Twitter (all times in GMT)

Each week there are a series of travel chats that take place on the Twitter-sphere bringing together new and seasoned travellers. The intention of these chats is to share experience, views and opinions of travel related issues that have quite often affected those taking part.

I created the list below of chats that I have either taken part in myself or planned to… and then missed out. Quite often, the chats are promoted to a U.S. audience, so I have converted all timings to GMT (London) time for Europe-based travellers like myself that still wish to get involved :-).

When I first joined Twitter, I wasn’t sure of the protocol for travel chats – do you introduce yourself? Do you dive in and start chatting? How do you know when and where to start? Well, yes, it is good practice to introduce yourself to the chat, as well as letting your followers know that you are joining a chat so may be tweeting a little more than usual – and of course, they may want to join in.

Take a look through the list below, choose a chat that interests you. Search Twitter for the relevant hashtag close to the start time. The host or organiser for that chat will post questions, usually related to a nominated theme. Time is allowed in between for you to discuss with other participants your responses.

  • In order for all chat participants to see your tweets and engage with you, be sure to end each tweet with the relevant hashtag. This will ensure your comments are read and shared with others.
  • Keep it polite – Don’t be rude or offensive to others. The chat is a friendly and sociable environment.
  • Tell other travel-addicts about the chats – the more the merrier.
  • Most of all, enjoy yourself.  Some travellers have had some really interesting experiences, don’t be shy to ask about it and follow up outside of the chat on any key points of interest.

N.B. List in order of days of the week. Should you wish to add a chat that you host to the list, then please let me know through the ‘Contact‘ page.
