Country Connect offers a directory of every active national tourist office based in the UK. Where we have been unable to locate an active representative office for a particular country, we say so with a "No active office" notice.
We carry regular features on popular destinations, a news section and an expanding set of links to the newest sites aimed at the UK-resident traveller.
We research our information through direct mailings, through contact with each office, and through contact with the individual Embassy representing each country in the UK.
Country Connect initially started working with UK-based national tourist offices in 1989, and since that time has established regular news-feeds for timely distribution to the UK travel industry via closed, managed networks. Elements from these feeds are made available to the public via this website, and comprise regular updates on travel offers, new airline routes, new holiday programmes from tour operators and much else of interest to the UK-resident world traveller and holidaymaker.
In addition to the contact information, Country Connect offers a country-by-country link to official government travel advice, BBC climate statistics, as well as to the Word Travels destination guide and even the CIA factbook for in-depth country profiling.
