Why Work with EuropeUpClose?

First of all, what is EuropeUpClose? It is a Europe-focused Online Travel Publication that shares destinations guides, travel tips, and itineraries focused on European destinations. Different than most travel blogs, we focus on our readers, not ourselves. You won’t find many selfies or diary-style articles on our website, but rather helpful tips that make it easy for our readers to plan their trip, a guidebook with a sprinkle of personal insights and maybe a funny anecdote or two so that our readers can connect with us and trust our recommendations. We also have a team of several (paid) contributors that share their insights and tips about Europe. 

EuropeUpClose has a highly targeted audience of readers who are currently planning their trips to Europe. Our hotel affiliate conversion rates (150-200 hotel nights booked each month at an average conversion rate of 2.55%) show that our readers are in the middle of planning their next trip to Europe and are highly motivated to book flights, hotels, and activities.

The EuropeUpClose website was started in 2007 and currently, we have over 1800 published articles with tips and advice about traveling to Europe. Our Domain Authority of 51 shows that we provide high-quality content on a well-established platform that enjoys the trust of our 101,000+ monthly readers and 53,000+ Social Media Followers.

Working with EuropeUpClose will give you access to a highly motivated and narrow target market that is looking for what your company has to offer.

Our Team

We, Greg and Maria, have over both worked in Online Marketing for over 1 decade and have extensive experience with Social Media Marketing techniques and Search Engine Optimization.

Maria focuses on the creative part, including writing and photography, while Greg handles the technical aspects and business development. While Greg has a traditional 9-5 job, we travel together as much as possible to create the best content. When Greg is tied up at work, Maria travels solo. If you want to work with us, please contact us at
