The Haphazard Traveler is a personal blog written and edited by me, Adrienne.  The posts and stories are written and created from my first-hand experiences and/or extensive research on a destination, product, service or company.  

What is “Affiliate Marketing”?

The Haphazard Traveler is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

On my blog, I also place affiliate links from other companies such as, Get Your Guide, World Nomads, Intrepid Travel, G Adventures, and Viator. Any qualifying purchases made through these links may earn advertising fees.

However, I never recommend products, destinations or services that I wouldn’t spend my own money on or buy for my mom.  Seriously, I bought her most of the contents of my Best Travel Gear post to take on her first solo trip to Italy.

Complimentary items or services

I pay for my own travel including hotels and flights, except in cases where I travel for my regular job and extend that trip with personal travel days.

If in the future I receive any complimentary services like flights, tours or hotel stays, or if I am provided with complimentary items to review, this will be indicated in the post.  Regardless, I will always share my honest personal opinions.

If you have any questions regarding this Disclosure Policy, please contact me!

FTC Guidelines

The Federal Trade Commission requires that I disclose to readers when I endorse a product or service and have a “material connection” to the seller.

These FTC guidelines are available online. (Specifically, §255.5: Disclosure of Material Connections.)
