I created this Affiliate Disclosure to show how I use affiliates programs on this site. What that means is if you click on one of the links to one of my affiliate partners AND make a purchase, then I will receive a percentage of that purchase. This does not mean that you are paying any extra for the product if you buy it through my link. The product will cost the exact same amount as if you were to directly to that partner’s website.
Important! – I only partner with affiliates for products or services that I use and recommend. If I don’t like or don’t use a product, then I’m not going to tell you to buy it just so I can make a quick buck. That would be a crappy thing for me to do. So I don’t do it.
I like to think I am helping the community by providing my thoughtful commentary and recommendations for specific products that I use and have already paid for myself. Please help me to continue creating content and to maintain this website by using my affiliate links when you purchase any of the products I endorse.
What do my Affiliate Disclosures look like?
Affiliate disclosure – I receive a percentage for every sale of any product purchased using the affiliate links in the area below this disclosure. That includes the links on this page too! (The titles for each affiliate is also a link to their site.) Please help support me to continue creating content by using the links below to make your purchase.
How much do I make?
The amount that I receive is different for each affiliate I partner with. Sometimes I will receive a flat rate based on how many items I sell, and sometimes it will be a percentage. With some partners the percentage I receive will increase if my monthly sales rises above certain thresholds.
Below I list the agreement I have with each of my partners. Note: These agreements may change over time at the discretion of the affiliate partner.
I receive a commission on “booking departures”. a booking departure means a customer has booked, stayed, and checked out of the room. The percentage increases with thresholds at increasing booking departure levels. There is an increasing rate of percentage with increased sales. With less than 50 booking departures I receive a 35% commission. For 1000 booking departures my commission is 60%.
With Agoda I pay a processing fee that is 2.6% of what the purchaser pays Agoda for the room.
