This way the books already used don't clog up valuable shelf space and those wanted for the next trip will be much cheaper.
Where to Look for Used Travel Guides
GuideGecko has just begun to allow travellers to sell their used guidebooks on their publishing platform. Travellers can add their guidebooks to a list free of charge in a quick and easy way.
The listed guidebook then becomes available instantly via the internet site to customers around the world. When the title that has been listed is sold GuideGecko collects the payment and sends on the buyers details and shipping address. The seller will receive 85% of the price they put on the book and GuideGecko will pay them via PayPal, cheque or bank transfer.
The Founder and Managing Director of GuideGecko, Daniel Quadt, says "We know there are lots of used guidebooks that have done their job for their current owners, and are now gathering dust on the bookshelf. What better way to earn some extra money towards your next trip than by selling them to other travelers looking forward to their own trip?"
The travel bookstore at GuideGecko offers more than 70 categories and 169 countries, so it shouldn't be hard to find where to sell those unwanted books or to find the next one on the list to buy. Most of the well-known publishers like Lonely Planet, Rough Guides and Insight Guides are there as well as many lesser-known ones.
To find out more about buying and selling used travel guides see GuideGecko.
GuideGecko is also an online publishing platform for travel guidebooks, lifestyle and entertainment guides. Anyone can publish their own guides on the site, they then make them available to the public as PDF downloads and also a printed books or booklets that are produced on demand and mailed to the customer.
This method of publishing is free and the writer will earn between 50-75% on each copy of their work sold. At present they have more than 2600 guides on 169 countries and 270 different cities and regions around the world.
This is one way of becoming a published writer without breaking the bank and so is well worth looking into further for any self-publisher.
