Whilst long established guide book publishers such as Lonely Planet and Rough Guides have an excellent spread of destinations, when you want knowledge on more obscure places (rough guide to Kosovo anyone?) – it starts to become harder to find the up to date, authoritative travel information and advice you need.
Enter InYourPocket; publishers of guides that tend to reach the places other guide book publishers don’t. Written by locally based authors, InYourPocket’s free, colourful, downloadable PDF guides are a platinum mine of information.
Their publishing model allows them to cover less well travelled destinations that are often ignored by mainstream publishers, and hence the brand is likely to appeal to the more independent, underground, ‘off the beaten path’ type traveller. New editions are published every couple of months – ensuring info is accurate and timely.
InYourPocket have still got a long way to go if they are to rival other publishers in terms of the breadth of their selection; at present they don’t cover anywhere outside of Europe and Russia, but for travel information on central and eastern European countries, InYourPocket.com is my first stop.
