Andrew Sanger (born 1948) is a British freelance journalist and travel writer, known for many popular travel guides to France and the French regions, although he has also authored more than 20 guides to other locations.
Sanger was educated at the Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle in London, Colchester Royal Grammar School, University College London and Sussex University.
Sanger is the author of The Vegetarian Traveller (1987), a guide to the foods and eating habits around Europe and the Mediterranean, which was one of the first travel guides for vegetarians and was a best-seller in the United Kingdom; and a commentary on Robert Louis Stevenson's An Inland Voyage (1991). His guide Exploring Rural France (1988 and subsequent editions) gave early encouragement to ordinary tourists visiting France to get off the beaten track and discover more about the country. The book gave a rise to a series published by A&C Black (London) urging the same approach to other countries. Sanger also published a memoir or novel, Love (2005 and 2015), describing his life in Berkeley, California during the "Summer of Love" and travels during the hippy era, including the "hippie trail" to India. His novel The J-Word (2009), about secular Jewish identity, is not on a travel-related theme, and is set in the neighbourhood of Golders Green in his native north-west London. His novel The Slave (2013), about human trafficking and slavery, is set in the same district.
In addition, Sanger has written hundreds of articles, almost all on travel, for British newspapers and other publications. From 1990 to 1999, he was editor of the French Railways (later Rail Europe) customer magazine Top Rail. In 1994 and 1996 he received Travelex Travel Writers' Awards for articles published in BBC Holiday Magazine and in Rail Europe Magazine. Sanger is a member of Travelwriters UK and the British Guild of Travel Writers.
