As members of the media, we sometimes receive complimentary or reduced rates at hotels, resorts, museums, restaurants, attractions, theater performances, as well as getting products for review. This is customary in our business, although we personally pay for plenty of things, too.
In our posts, we disclose when we have received a complimentary or discounted rate as a result of our status as travel bloggers. We work hard to be as fair and impartial as we can be when reviewing a location, attraction, or product, whether we have paid full price or have received a media admission or rate.
While your experience at a destination, service, or with a product, may be different than ours, what you read here reflects our honest opinion, tempered by a few decades of travel experience, and colored only by our personal travel preferences.
Advertising found on this site, or the occasional use of affiliate links may result in some payment coming our way. While this is one way we create revenue on this site, we consider our first loyalty is to you, our readers.
You may also find native advertising on this site. It also helps to pay the bills and is clearly differentiated from independent editorial content.
Opinions expressed are always our own, freely expressed, and are never bought and paid for. In other words, if we like something, we’ll tell you all about it. If we don’t, the same holds true. When we work with sponsors we make it clear that we are being compensated for our time, work, and honest opinion. A favorable opinion is never guaranteed.
If you are interested in buying advertising on this site, becoming a sponsor, discussing sponsored travel, or have a hotel, resort, restaurant, travel product or attraction that you would like us to review, please review our advertising page and then get in touch via our contact form or contact me by email.
