Rachel Erdos is a former writer with TripSavvy. She is a British freelance writer and editor based in south London.

She first moved to the city in 2003 and has been on a mission to track down its coziest pubs, coolest gig venues, fanciest afternoon tea spots, and best restaurants ever since. She is just as enamored by London's blockbuster sights as its historic backstreets and loves nothing more than providing insider tips and itineraries to friends and family.

Rachel has written about destinations across the globe and has visited over 35 countries. The Guardian, Visit Britain, Four Seasons Magazine, and Travelzoo are among the variety of publications she has contributed to. She has also held the position of senior editor at Jetsetter, where she regularly wrote features about London, the UK, and luxury hotels.
