introDuction TNT Magazine was established in 1983 as a travel and news weekly – pioneering free distribution in the UK. The magazine originally had a huge backpacker following, with ‘fresh of the boaters’ from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa making a beeline for it as soon as they hit the UK. However, as the travelling market has become increasingly sophisticated – now more ‘flashpacker’ than backpacker – the magazine has seen its reader demographic change to incorporate an older, higher-earning, longer-staying and more career-orientated market. Regardless of these changes, the TNT brand continues to attract huge loyalty and trust among Antipodeans and South Africans, and 25 years later is still regarded as ‘The Bible’ for travellers living and working in the UK.

ÓLoyal and dedicated readers
The TNT brand is synonomous with Antipodeans travelling to the UK. It is their source for travel information, job and accommodation tips and ideas and the continually use it during the time they spend here. “With so many changes in my seven years in the UK, there has, however, been one constant – TNT. I have been reading it since I arrived from South Africa and it is as much part of my life in London as anything else. I found a flat through TNT, and a job in the careers section, went to gigs recommended in the entertainment section, and lapped up the travel articles. Thanks for a truly fab mag, keep up the good work.” Trish, Acton Town
