Please note that I am committed to promoting diversity in travel and I only take part in campaigns that include diverse content creators such as black, POC, disabled, LGBTQI+ and plus-size creators.  I hope we align on these values and look forward to talking in more detail about working together. 

If you need assistance increasing diversity in your campaigns I am more than happy to recommend a range of excellent content creators.

I look forward to working with you soon!

Previous Partnerships

Travel brands I have worked with include:

Who Ive Worked With - Company Logos


I was the 2019 #wombatsTraveller Ambassador for wombat’s CITY HOSTELS, working with them on a 6-month project over the summer to promote their hostels and destinations to my readers and followers.  As a long-term partner of wombat’s I was able to create a variety of content for them and help them reach a wide range of potential new customers.

Gregor Kleczkowski, Head of Marketing wombat’s CITY HOSTELS, said:

Claire was the winner of the #wombatstraveller competition campaign back in 2018 at Wombat’s The City Hostels. There were over 90 applications for three competition spots. We then teamed up the three selected upcoming travel content creators with more experienced professionals for an international campaign.

Not only did Claire get one of these spots, but she also managed to convince our jury with her content and win. Claire especially impressed us with her quality content, professionalism, and sympathy. Our local managers loved working with her, and she was utterly reliable in her communications towards us and her community.

As winner of the campaign, she went on to work tightly connected with our marketing department as brand ambassador throughout 2019. Her blog posts converted into a reliable inbound source for our website, she upped our social media presence considerably, and overall, it was a pleasure to spin creative campaigns with her.

I very much recommend working with Claire. She adds great writing skills and creative input to your content marketing game and crafts quality travel content for you.

Kay Hyde, Head of Communications, Make It York, said,

“Visit York is one of England’s most respected travel brands and as a top visitor destination it is crucial for us to protect and nurture our brand.

We work with travel writers and travel bloggers who understand the value of our brand and who are interested in working collaboratively with us.  Claire was a pleasure to work with and has generated engaging and inspiring content about the city of York, inspiring a new generation of visitors to the city. 

By working with quality Travel Bloggers, we can maximise the impact of all of our social media activity, which forms a core part of our communications strategy.  At every step of the process of working with Tales of A Backpacker, Claire was professional and a joy to work with.  We would very much recommend her to any destination interested in increasing its profile to visitors.”

Speaker or Interview / Podcast Guest

I am available for speaking opportunities to inspire young people and particularly women to travel more and am happy to share my personal travel story that goes from being fired from a job in Manchester to living my dream travel lifestyle.

I took my first solo trip 20 years ago, and since then I have lived and travelled in countries all over the world.  I have been fully nomadic since 2016, I’ve lived in a campervan, backpacked solo around South America and Mexico and had countless adventures!

I am passionate about solo female travel, and have been interviewed by the BBC and The Times about travel safety, so would love to chat with you about any of these topics.

You can see more of my speaking engagements and podcast interviews on my portfolio page here.
