Affiliate Disclosure for the FTC

Many of the links listed on this page and throughout my site are what’s called Affiliate Marketing. That means if you click a link and make a purchase, I’ll get a BIG FAT commission at no extra cost to you. Ok, it’s not really a big fat commission. It’s more like between 4% to 8% of the sale. If you didn’t already know it, most of us travel bloggers are basically salespeople. We just get to do it online while wearing flip flops and drinking beer. I’ll say thank you up front for shopping through any of the links on this page.
