Travel Smart

Monthly travel series for Independent TV - available on website, app, or on a Smart TV.

Travel Smart is the brand new series from the Independent travel team providing viewers with all the information and inspiration they need to plan their next trip.

Presented by travel correspondent Simon Calder, travel editor Helen Coffey and deputy travel editor Lucy Thackray, the magazine-style show looks at the hottest destinations to visit, the most sustainable ways to explore the world, and top money-saving tips to get the best deals when holiday booking.

The series also includes destination specials, such as Texas and Barbados, giving a zoomed in look at what travellers can do while they’re there; comparing the benefits of taking a road-trip vs a rail adventure in the US; and answering themed reader questions, such as how to get the best car rental deal after touching down.
