RTX Traveler Magazine Issue 14 | Dominican Republic

RTX Traveler Cover - Issue 14RTX Traveler: Refreshed

When our team plans each issue of RTX Traveler, we take a lot of factors into consideration. Where do we know our members love to travel, and what can we show them about those destinations that they may not already know? What destinations can we write about that may be new and unique to our members? What benefits and features can we highlight to remind members of all they can do with RTX, while maybe teaching them something new? We see this magazine as not just a collection of pretty pictures and interesting travel writing (which it is!) but also as an educational and informational tool for our members; so that each issue has a long shelf life because it is useful and helpful, as well as inspiring.

This marks our 14th issue, and we are quite proud of the evolution of our publication. In our print version of the issue, you may notice a few subtle changes. We’ve refreshed the overall design and organization a bit, and we’ve also added a few articles written by gracious contributors who we consider experts in their fields. Check out this issue’s Health Hints and Packing Tips articles. We’re also thrilled to feature photos from our writer and photographer, Pat Barcas. And please be sure to check out page 5 of our print edition for a few of the amazing photos we received in our first RTX Traveler member vacation photo contest.

We have plans for even more improvements to RTX Traveler for future issues. We are always brainstorming to find ways to make the publication better and more useful to our members, much like the leadership team at RTX is constantly working behind the scenes to implement processes and enhance benefits to improve the overall experience of RTX members. We hope you can take the time to sit back, relax and let the articles in this issue take you on a brief vacation from your everyday life and leave you feeling as refreshed as we do, while inspiring you to plan your next actual vacation with RTX.
