A letter from our Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, Cathy Wagstaff

In light of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak – specifically our Prime Minister’s severe restrictions on international travel – I am writing to let you know Signature Luxury Travel & Style will continue to publish content designed to inspire you, both at home and overseas, as well as provide factual travel updates and information, such as how to plan your travel around the coronavirus.

We are confident that like other crises that have affected the travel industry in the past – the 2009 Global Financial Crisis, H1N1 pandemic (aka swine flu), SARS, the Paris terrorist attacks and ebola virus, to name but a few – that this one will also eventually pass.

While we may not know when, we do know that it will. And we know that just like us, you will still be passionate about travelling and discovering the incredible world around us. If you have a trip planned or are thinking about overseas travel in the near future, please continue following travel advice from Smart Traveller and the World Health Organisation (WHO). In the meantime, please support domestic travel, as local towns and businesses need us more than ever.

Until this is over, we encourage you to peruse our content to stay inspired or to take a break from hard-hitting news, whether it’s reading about the most extreme places to visit on Earth, taking a peek inside the world’s most extravagant suites or discovering 6 places to see before they disappear.

We also currently have a live competition to win a holiday for two to Abu Dhabi flying Business Class with Etihad, valued at over $18,000, which will be the perfect escape once it’s safe to travel. Find out how to enter here.

Plus, as an extra bonus to keep you inspired, you can read a complimentary digital version of our latest issue here, valued at $11.95.

Stay safe and please, when it is safe to do so, keep travelling.

If you would like to get in touch you can reach us on (02) 9406 4400 or email
