The Vacation Planning Guide is a reader service section located at the back of the magazine. See a sample page here. Each ad receives a reader service number that readers can use to request information from advertisers using a bound-in reader service card or by visiting Travel50andBeyond.com. When a visitor to Travel50andBeyond.com selects to receive information from an advertiser on the Free Travel Info page, a link to the advertisers's website will be presented as soon as the form is submitted. Travel50andBeyond.com captures the contact information for the advertiser to be delivered with next batch of leads and gives the site visitor instant access to information from the advertisers in which they are interested..
An advertiser will receive leads that include the name and address of any reader who requests more information from that specific advertiser.
These leads may be sent in a variety of ways:
1. A mailed hard copy list with publisher-printed mailing labels
2. An e-mailed ASCII text file
3. An e-mailed Excel spreadsheet
4. Any combination of the above options
Advertisers specify how they would like to receive their leads.
