Dean McCoubrey, Luxury Travel Editor, is also the Managing Editor of South Africa’s Journalism Hub, MediaWeb. For the last 12 years, I have owned a central resource for journalists who are looking for the latest journalism news, resources, tips and freelance work. As the Head Travel Writer within this network of journalists, my focus is on luxury travel, flights, and business travel, and am also the Editor of luxury travel and lifestyle publication, OneLife. Click here for a sneak peek.
My stories, produced monthly, are published on IOL Travel (part of Independent Newspapers, the largest newspaper group in South Africa), africa.com Travel (a lifestyle portal), Wildside (eco-travel magazine) Indwe (in-flight magazine), Premier (business class lounge magazine), Prestige magazine (high net-worth clients), and Bella (female interest). Finally, many stories have been published in SLOW magazine which is found within SLOW Lounges – operated and managed by British Airways, FNB Private Clients and RMB Private Bank in South Africa, as well as in the ‘SLOW in the City’ Lounge at the Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel in Sandton.
As an editor, I love writing, but my specific passion is on the fine detail in all things realted to luxury travel. Understandably, affluent travellers like to know the finer details and backstory about a place, and it’s unearthing and translating this valuable information, woven into a good read, that truly motivates me.
