Good editorial coverage is third party endorsement. Read third party endorsements for Travel Dog PR from clients and the press, both of whom we have developed excellent relationships with over many years.

“I have known Mick many years – from when I was at The Sunday Times and long before the birth of Travel Dog PR. Unlike many PRs out there, Mick will drop everything if I call him to get me what I need, in a format that he knows I will like, as soon as he can.
“I know I won’t get someone else answering the phone, telling me that he is in a meeting or at lunch. He’s super dependable, knows what makes a story and understands the importance of meeting a deadline.”
David Wickers, Travel Journalist and ex-Chief Travel Writer for The Sunday Times
“Mick Thompson has excellent connections in the world of public relations and keeps on pulling the rabbit out of the hat for Corinthian Travel. I highly recommend Travel Dog PR to anyone looking for a smaller, friendly, and results-focused PR company. Your money will be well spent.”
Hugh Fraser, Managing Director, Corinthian Travel
“Having known Mick for many years and worked with him at Travel Dog PR since its inception, we know he is always creative and brimming with ideas. If he approaches us with something I know it will fit the Wanderlust audience perfectly. He just gets it!”
Lyn Hughes, Publisher and Editor-in-chief, Wanderlust magazine
“After meeting with several other PR firms we came across Mick at Travel Dog PR, and found his no nonsense approach very refreshing. We have now worked with Travel Dog for a number of years, and are extremely happy with the consistency of results. Mick has an extensive network of key contacts in the publications that really matter to us, and he is a real pleasure to work with.”
Robin Ball, Director, Bamboo Travel
“Travel Dog PR has done a great job for Fleewinter over the last five years. Mick has a genuine interest and enthusiasm for our business and works as part of our team – not like a separate supplier.”
Alisdair Luxmoore, Managing Director, Fleewinter
“The reason I like Travel Dog PR is simple. I like Mick. He cares about my business. He does a good job and, most importantly for me, when I phone up Travel Dog PR I speak to Mick and get director-level service. Not to an assistant or a junior, but to Mick. He is flexible, kind, thoughtful and he knows what he is doing. If you want to talk to me about Travel Dog PR please ring me on 01590 622 296.”
Christine Simons, Owner, Cottage Lodge Hotel, New Forest
