Affiliate Links

Sometimes when I recommend a product, I’ll link to the company’s website using what’s known as an affiliate or referral link. Essentially, if you end up buying a product that you found via our link, we get a commission from the vendor.

Sometimes that commission is just a few dollars; sometimes it’s a little more. Sometimes it’s a one-time commission; sometimes it’s a rolling commission — so if you sign up for a monthly subscription service we might get a slice of that monthly fee.

But here’s the important thing — that referral doesn’t cost you a penny. The entire commission comes out of the vendor’s ‘cost of sales’ and not your pocket.

And it goes without saying that I’ll never recommend a product simply because it pays me a commission because that would be the wrong way to go about this.

So I’ll only recommend products that I’ve personally used or that come highly recommended by trusted peers. (After all, if I only recommend products I’m using myself right now, we’d be doing you a disservice, because there are tools that are a great fit for backpackers, family travel, and luxury travel)
