We sincerely hope you find value from our site sponsors...
and that they do not alienate you or send you away from us.
We explained on our FAQ and Financial Disclosures page why we have affiliates and sponsors.
Here we let you meet some of our site sponsors and partners.
We think they can help you plan your trip, get your travel gear, and find travel books for reading and research....
We'd love to have you purchase them from here.
Once you've made some decisions, other sponsors can help you book your flights, and tours or hotels and rental cars.
We've sprinkled their ads around our site where we thought they were the most relevant, but we thought it might help you to know who is advertising on our pages if you could find them all on one page... then you can choose which one might help you or disregard them as ads.
We don't have a glitzy commercial website. We've tried to keep our travel tips personal and low key. We've tried to provide you with the best travel information that we can.
Now we may be sending you off to a big commercial site. We just wanted you to understand what was happening and know that sometimes that's what it takes for the next step in your trip planning.
We hope our sponsors help you out and that the ads do not get in your way.
I know you can always just go straight to these on your own. They are popular and easy to pull up... but if you click through from here we get a small (very small believe me!) commission. It really helps us out if you visit us first... and we always want to thank you when you do!
If you've come back here to use one of our site sponsors... we sincerely thank you. Hope you have a great trip!
