About the ITN Online Edition

What is the ITN Online Edition?

There are two versions of International Travel News online.

For subscribers, all of ITN’s most current articles and news items as well as the archives are available; your subscriber number gives you access. Set up an account here. This version is available to subscribers who receive the printed magazine and to those who wish to purchase just an online subscription.

If you do not have a subscription to ITN, you have access to selected articles and items from the most recent 12 issues plus our full archives of articles printed more than a year ago.

How can I set up an account to access the Online Edition?

There are four ways to do this:

a. If you are already an ITN subscriber, you can set up your Online Edition account here. You will need to have your seven-digit subscriber number ready. (How can I find my subscriber number?)

b. If you are already a subscriber with an ITN account (required to use the Message Board) and would like to activate the online edition, you will also need to have your seven-digit subscriber number ready. Log in to your account, then click your username at the top left ("Hi, Username"). Click the "Subscriber Content" tab, enter your subscriber number, and click "Submit." You should see "Online Edition" and the date of the current issue under the ITN logo.

b. If you are not an ITN subscriber, you can to subscribe to the print edition ($24 — includes access to the Online Edition) or the Online Edition only.

c. If you would like a sample copy or a free, 2-month trial of the Online Edition.

Can I get a free preview?

Yes. You can request a free sample copy of the printed version of the magazine to be mailed to you or you can sign up for a temporary (two-month) Online Edition user account.

How much does it cost to subscribe?

$23 for the Online Edition or $24 for the print edition (within the US; non-domestic subscriptions are available at a higher rate).

An Online Edition subscription is included in the price of the print-edition subscription. Subscribers to the print edition automatically have free access to the Online Edition of ITN.

Subscribers who do not want to receive printed copies but do want to read the up-to-date articles on the website can subscribe to the Online Edition for $23.

For how long is my Online Edition valid?

Your access to current issues is valid as long as your subscription is valid. If your subscription lapses, you will still be able to log in to your account, but you will not be able to see current issues.

If you purchase a one-year subscription, your Online Edition account will be active for one year. When you renew, your Online Edition is automatically renewed as well.

Is there still a print edition of ITN?

Yes! The print edition of ITN will continue to be published and mailed.

a. The magazine — on newsprint, in black-and-white — has been in monthly publication since March 1976, with copies mailed to subscribers. Subscribers who do not have computer access, as well as those who do but prefer to receive the print edition, will continue to get a monthly copy in the mail.

b. We feel that subscribers who pay to support the magazine deserve special consideration and should receive more for their money, thus all subscribers to the print edition will also be allowed access to the Online Edition.

c. Note that, the print edition contains more content than is posted to the website. There is a wider range of advertisements, with more information, than those online. Also missing online are the MART classifieds, the "Person to Person" section and The Geografile (trivia).

d. We know that there are times when having a printed copy is just as useful as or preferable to the electronic edition (for reading on a plane, in the tub, passing along to friends, etc.).

Why not just publish all the current magazine content online for free?

TANSTAAFL. (There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.)

Our full-time staff is devoted to producing the ITN magazine and maintaining its website. Advertisements and paid subscriptions cover the costs of buildings, salaries and other expenses related to publishing the magazine and running the website.

Selected articles, letters and news items are pulled from the print edition and posted on the ITN website for the public to see — for free — each month. The full content is posted 12 months after publication.

ITN's website — which offers articles and news items that are fact-checked and extensively edited, with helpful trip-planning information added — is a credible source of current travel news worth $2 per month.
