The 10 most famous travel influencers

We live in a time when the figure of influencers has become fashionable. It is not new, far from it, but now it has become popular thanks to social networks such as Instagram or YouTube , which have undoubtedly provided the necessary tools to those people who have known how to use them to become a true claim for brands.

The most famous are the fashion influencers, but it must be said that they are not the only ones who succeed. In fact, those specialized in travel and tourism garner a number of followers that have nothing to envy those of instagramers such as Dulceida, who incidentally also promotes hotels. There are so many that specialized media have lost steam when it comes to presenting themselves as an attractive option to advertisers.
