WE SEEK TRAVEL
First of all, I thank you, my loyal reader, for continuing to rely on We Seek Travel for up-to-date adventure travel and destination guides to plan your trips. I owe everything to my readers and I could not continue living my dream of full-time adventure travel without you.
We Seek Travel is a for-profit business meaning that I do receive an income from this website. We Seek Travel is a member of several affiliate programs with direct and redirected links that may provide commission from your clicks. I only recommend products and services that I personally use or have used myself. Unlike many other travel blogs out there, I prioritise the experience of my readers first and foremost. Therefore, you won’t find spammy links on this blog, just useful links that are always relevant to you.
If you (the reader) click on any of these links and then go on to purchase a product or service, I may receive a small commission between 4% to 10% of the sale. This is always at absolutely no extra cost to you and you will always pay exactly the same amount as if you were to visit the website directly.
These affiliate links help me stay on the road and allow me to continue publishing free adventure travel articles for my readers.
Obviously, not all links on this blog are affiliate links, but to help with compliance, it’s better for both my readers and I to assume that I will receive a commission from your clicks.
Booking.com Affiliate Program
I am a participating member of the Booking .com Affiliate Program.
I include accommodation recommendations in many of my travel and destination articles. These help my readers find great deals on the best places to stay for their travels.
If you do click through one of my Booking .com links and proceed with an accommodation booking, I will receive a small commission made from that booking and at no extra cost to you.
Amazon Associates Affiliate Program
We Seek Travel 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 links to Amazon.com. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. As part of this Amazon Associates program, We Seek Travel will post customized links, provided by Amazon, to track the referrals to their website. This program utilizes cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales. When you click on the Amazon affiliate links to purchase an item, it allows me to earn a small commission, at no additional cost to you.
All efforts are made to ensure that affiliate links are disclosed in accordance with the FTC and GDPR.
