Those in the know may already be in possession of the ultimate fashion accessory, the stylish Silver Travel Advisor cotton bag. Perfect for  a holiday or just a day out,  your bag can be used at the beach, to the local market, or for sightseeing. It’s no wonder that our limited edition bags are so sought after.

Ownership of one of our bags is a privilege few can boast of (this is a designer item after all!), but we do have a few to give away to loyal Silver Travellers to take away with them.

Each month we are awarding a £20 M&S voucher to the member who sends the most exciting story and photo of where their bag has travelled to.

Get the ultimate bag for your next holiday or day out.

You could join in too: simply send an email to [email protected] telling us where you would like to take your bag to, and we will get one in the post to you.

Then all you need to do is visit this thread on the Forum and upload your picture. It couldn’t be simpler!

Here are examples of the holidays and places where our bags have ventured since 2011.
