Instead of purchasing a Lonely Planet guidebook or video one-by-one, you can now have unlimited access to it all with a Lonely Planet Membership. Plus, we've thrown in some extra perks too that only members can get.
1. Purchase your membership
To purchase a membership, visit the membership page and pick out which option works best for you. Memberships are based on time and you can always purchase another membership if you need extra. Based on the option you choose, you will gain additional savings or have access to specific perks. A recurring membership subscription can also be purchased through the Guides app (available on iOS or Android) if you are more of a set-it-and-forget-it kind of person.
2. Activate your membership
Now that you've made your selection and a purchase, you are almost there.
- If done through the website, instructions are included in your order confirmation email which include a special link and an activation code. If you don't see the email in your inbox within a few minutes after successfully purchasing your membership, check your spam folder. Follow the special link in the email to activate your membership. This process ensures that your order is tied tied to an account - and walks you through creating a Lonely Planet account if you have not done so already.
- If done through the Guides app, follow the screens to complete the membership activation process. If you don't already have a Lonely Planet account, the app will walk you through creating one.
Once you have submitted all the required information and finished the activation prompts, the Lonely Planet membership system will recognize your sign-in for the time which you have purchased.
3. Download and Watch
Your active Membership now gives you unlimited access to the Guides app and Lonely Planet TV. In the app you will have over 8,000 cities at your fingertips, language guides, Magic FX, virtual tours, neighborhood and transportation information, and budget tips. On Lonely Planet TV you will be able to watch over 350 episodes of award-winning travel shows, digital shorts, and new content from the Lonely Planet video team.
