Hey guys! It’s Melissa.
This page serves the purpose of letting you know that my blog participates in affiliate marketing.
What does this mean?
It means that if I am recommending a product or a hotel, I might be receiving a small percentage of commission if you end up buying or booking from the link. This is done at no additional cost to you. And, I only do this if I happen to be recommending a product or a hotel that is available on my affiliate marketing platforms.
Why is affiliate marketing important?
Let me start off by saying that the content of this website is 100% free and will stay that way. However, having a blog is not free. There are costs associated with maintaining a blog, such as domain name and hosting fees to ensure this blog is always up and running. On top of that, I spend a chunk of my personal time maintaining this blog – which includes everything from writing up new and (I hope) informative travel posts for you guys, doing research, editing photos then attaching them to my posts, website development, and answering your questions. At the moment, I do NOT make any profit from this website.
My promise to you
I will always recommend a product that I have personally used or is a big believer in. I will also only recommend hotels that I have stayed and enjoyed. I might be recommending an alternative product if the exact brand product is not sold online anymore, but I will make a note to do so and will only recommend a product that I have carefully researched based on reviews.
If you have any further questions about this, please feel free to contact me.
Thanks for reading!
