This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. Any compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will always be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content. Contributing writers are held to the same transparent standard of disclosure.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely that of the blog owner’s or that of the contributing writer’s. If we claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

Content that may present a conflict of interest (i.e. if we write about a company with whom we conduct professional business, or a relative’s service or product) we’ll clearly identify our relationship to the content. We may make use of affiliate links and other sponsored links to promote our advertisers and our affiliate partners throughout the site. All advertisers/partners are vetted and come with our approval/recommendation, though we hold no responsibility or liability for vendors and suppliers not part of  The Travel Belles.

As of February 2010, The Travel Belles may accept sponsorships and advertising. Additionally, The Travel Belles may receive discounted or complimentary travel rates from hotels or destinations, or we may receive complimentary products to review. Again these relationships will always be clearly identified.

If you purchase one of the products mentioned on The Travel Belles, visit one of the destinations we cover, stay at one of the hotels or dine at one of the restaurants we review, we sincerely hope you enjoy your experience. However we cannot be held responsible for the quality of your experience, nor anything that may happen while you’re using the product or while you’re on vacation. We do value your opinion and encourage you to contact us with your own experiences with topics discussed on this blog at [email protected]
