Nikki Guevara Perez de Tagle, the Issue's Cover Model, Puts a Face on PT Picks, Spotlighting the World's 10 Sweetest Suites

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - October 10, 2014) - Loyalty programs, once considered a magical part of air travel, have been performing a rather unpopular act of late, making those previously popular perks vanish into thin air, according to what Premier Traveler (PT) readers share with Features Editor Janet Forman, in "Now You See It, Now You Don't."

In "Outward Bound," Senior Editor Shân Willis takes an in-depth look at the evolving trend of marketing campaigns geared specifically toward the LGBT community, searching for substance beneath the surface and discovering a world of support in surprising places.

PT's ongoing conversation about travel for women puts a twist into the dialogue by inviting men into the mix and garnering perspectives from both sides of the street, in "Gender Perspectives."

About Premier Traveler: Premier Traveler (PT) was created as an outlet for its readers' voices to be heard. Perpetually on-the-go (both domestically and abroad), with high expectations and a taste for luxury, PT readers always have something to share - a personal experience, an opinion, a suggestion, a question - and PT was designed to listen and to get the answers they need.

The open dialogue doesn't stop with letters and emails from readers. PT goes one step further by creating frequent questionnaires on a variety of topics, allowing the editorial team to inject the magazine's content with valuable and relevant insights.

As perennial global travelers, PT readers demand premium products and services but can still appreciate a good deal. That's why they turn to PT for the latest travel news and information, while also learning about exciting promotional offers and losing themselves in candid hotel and flight reviews. This is part of what makes Premier Traveler more than just another magazine, but one that shares a personal connection with its readers.
