Good afternoon

Your help is needed to fund the ongoing operation and continued expansion of The Travel Insider newsletter, blog and website.

Your assistance helps ensure that the airlines, other travel suppliers and government departments continue to be held accountable for their actions.

Together, we're succeeding.  The Travel Insider's 'voice' continues to grow, with more and more websites, newspapers, magazines, radio and television stations, from all around the world, quoting and repeating our commentaries.  Our volunteer army of well educated, upper income, frequent traveler readers and occasional activists is now 16,000 strong in number, and growing every day.  Our Alexa ranking has us as the 23,853rd most popular site on the entire world wide web.

Please help maintain this momentum, and keep everything we do free for everyone.  Please join the 178 readers who have already kindly contributed in the last ten days and help us make our modest target of 300 reader contributions.

Simply click to this page to make a convenient credit card payment, or, if you prefer, you're welcome to mail a check to :

Any amount of contribution is very appreciated.  Most people are donating in the $20-25 range, and of course you're welcome to send in more (or less) - whatever is convenient and affordable for you.

Normal newsletter and feature column will follow on Friday, same as just about every other Friday for almost four years now.  Until then, here's a little something to put a smile on your face and remind you of the idiocy that The Travel Insider exposes.

Thanks for reading and thanks more for helping out.
