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 Amazon.com. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
On my blog, I also place affiliate links from other companies such as Booking.com, 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!
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.)
