Travel Hag’s FTC Disclosure


The Federal Trade Commission requires that writers disclose when they are being paid or given an incentive to review or promote products.  I support this requirement and as a consumer believe that all writers should disclose when they’re being compensated for writing a review.

Currently I am not paid by any entity to review books, destinations, hotels, venues or travel vendors.  In most cases I pay for my travel out of pocket and I purchase products that I review.  In cases where I have been compensated for travel accommodations or venue admissions or been given products to review, I will disclose that in the body of writing.

It is likely that I am being paid a commission on the sale of products that are linked to my site – such as the Amazon carousel at the end of the blog post or affiliate links – and this is how I support the production of the blog.

If you have any questions about how I or other posters are being compensated through posts and links on the website, please feel free to inquire directly.  Email


Thank you for visiting my blog.  Here’s to all of us wonderful hags and hagmen who travel.
