WELCOME TO
THE SAVVY TRAVELLER.COM

The Savvy Traveller began twenty-six years ago in Chicago as a real live one-stop shop for travellers.  It was filled with guidebooks and all manner of other reading matter about places around the world, along with maps, globes and travel gear for actual travellers, armchair travellers...and dreamers. The aim of the store was to provide everything a traveller needs to plan and take a trip, except tickets. The Savvy Traveller closed its bricks and mortar store in 2007.  We are in the process of recreating the bricks and mortar shopping experience online.  Watch us as we change and improve our website!

"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page."
~St. Augustine

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime."
~Mark Twain

"If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay home."
~James Michener

Please help us improve by communicating with us. We're always delighted to hear from you.
