WHO WE ARE

Midlands Traveller is a blog on travel and lifestyle in general.  I like to introduce new brands and services, and I also write about food, drinks, places, and everything else that I love and would to introduce/share with my audience. I am pretty much passionate about writing. So, I put a lot of work and care into this blog.

I am committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of visitors to this website and subscribers to the Midlands Traveller followers/subscribers. By the way, if you are not a subscriber, please join it now on my home.

Your data will not be used in any way apart from how we specifically state it will be used. Please read on to find out why we collect your data, how we use it and how we will not disclose it to others.

I don’t send monthly newsletters to any subscribers. So, the only message you will receive from Midlands Traveller is from a WordPress automatic update on a new post that I have written.

I don’t use your personal information provided in comments and don’t send any advert of any kind to none of my followers.
