Advertising and sponsored travel policy for OffbeatTravel

At we believe in letting readers know our standards and requirements for handling sponsored travel, articles, and advertising

We do NOT allow advertising and sponsored links WITHIN editoral content in any of our travel articles. All of our sponsored text links and banners would appear ONLY in the page margins -- along the top, sides, or bottom of the page.

We DO allow sponsored content which is part of our FocusOn program. These articles are listed on our Features page under Associated Content.

We allow our contributors to write articles based on press trips and familiarization trips. However all of our contributors are responsible journalists and report on their actual experience. They do NOT receive financial compensation from destinations, hotels, restaurants, but they may be comped for hotels, airfare, and/or meals.

If you have any questions, please write to me, the editor, at
