Twitter travel chats are a great way to interact with other like-minded individuals who have a passion for travel. There are a huge variety of chats each week, month and year, I’ve tried to compile an up to date list of the most popular ones as well as evergreen travel hashtags that can be used anytime.
Also included are annual and international events that are popular with the travel community on Twitter. Scroll to the end of the page for my live calendar with upcoming chats.
For any amends or additions to this calendar, please contact me using this form.
