The Condé Nast unit of Advance Publications purchased Signature, a magazine for Diners Club members, for $25 million in 1986. The company used it as the basis for Condé Nast Traveler, led by Sir Harold Evans in 1987, with a focus on literary journalism and hard news reporting. As editor in chief, Evans coined the motto "Truth in Travel," which declared that travel industry freebies would not be accepted.
Condé Nast Traveler is currently led by Editor in Chief Melinda Stevens.
An entirely separate UK edition, Condé Nast Traveller, is produced from Condé Nast's offices at Vogue House in London.
Condé Nast Traveler main competitor is Travel + Leisure.
