In today’s episode of bCreator: Serious Influence, Alice Audley (bCreator’s founder) is joined by travel creators Lloyd and Yaya of Hand Luggage Only.

Founded in 2014 whilst Lloyd and Yaya were studying, the pair have since built their travel blog into a global sensation that gets over an impressive 1 million monthly unique visitors. 

Focusing on attainable travel, Lloyd and Yaya have inspired thousands with their stunning content and helpful tips. The duo expanded their travel brand across all the major social networks, striking particular success on Pinterest, where they gain over 34 million impressions a month, and TikTok where they have over 1M followers. They have also built up an impressive portfolio of brand partnerships such as Aperol, Expedia, Disney, Microsoft, Eurotunnel, Hilton, Accor & Meta.

When Lloyd and Yaya aren’t travelling across the globe, they are also avid authors and recently published their first novel ‘Hand Luggage Only: Great Britain’ – the must-have travel guide for exploring Great Britain’s finest. The book was published by Hardie Grant Books in July 2021 in the UK, Australia and the USA.
