Welcome to Elliott Confidential

I created Elliott Confidential after years of working for the mainstream media. There were some stories I wanted to tell — but couldn’t.

When you subscribe to the free version of this newsletter, you’ll receive the Elliott Confidential Commentary, my flagship feature, every Sunday.

I’ll examine the issues facing consumers and travelers with a critical eye. I’ll also share insider information you won’t find anywhere else. And you can always count on a lively discussion.

If you want more, why not become an Elliott Confidential member?

Here's what you get with your paid subscription:

  • Exclusive access to the Elliott Confidential Friday Forum, our weekly discussion thread.

  • Access to Elliott Confidential Podcast, a deep dive into travel and customer service trends.

  • The Elliott Confidential Briefing, which appears every Monday. You'll find industry insights and analyses that no one else dares report.

  • Exclusive access to draft chapters of the sequel to my book How To Be The World's Smartest Traveler.

Thank you for reading

I know you’ll enjoy the commentary and insights you’ll find in Elliott Confidential.

Thank you for daring to subscribe to the newsletter the travel industry doesn’t want you to read.
