Affiliate Disclosure

The Broke Backpacker’s mission is simple: to highlight the transformative power of travel, teaching you to embrace budget adventuring as a way to foster growth and voyage far beyond the edges of our comfort zones.

As part of our commitment to providing valuable content, we occasionally recommend products and services that we believe can genuinely enhance your travel experiences. These recommendations result from our affiliate partnerships, which enable us to continue delivering the insights you rely on.

We want to ensure transparency in these partnerships and their potential impact on your choices. Please take a moment to read our affiliate disclosure below to understand how this works and how it influences your engagement with our content. Your trust is paramount, and we’re dedicated to maintaining it at all times.

In our pursuit to inspire, guide, and empower, we’ve partnered with affiliate programs. These links serve as conduits of support for our website’s operations. Simply put, when you use these affiliate links to make a purchase, we may earn a modest commission, fee or payment. It’s important to emphasize that this commission, fee or payment doesn’t alter the price you pay for any product or service. Our goal is to ensure transparency while continuing to offer valuable content.

Affiliate Programs and Their Relevance

Our partnership choices are rooted in a stringent criterion: authenticity. We collaborate exclusively with brands and services we have first-hand experience with. The selections are based on their ability to enhance the travel experiences of our community. By recommending only products that have added value to our own journeys, we aim to provide you with opportunities to create memories that last a lifetime.

Transparent Earnings Disclaimer

A cornerstone of our approach is transparency. We believe it’s vital to communicate that certain links within our content are indeed affiliate links. This means that if you choose to book accommodations, purchase gear, or secure insurance through these links, a commission, fee or payment is generated. However, this commission, fee or payment comes at no additional expense to you. Our commitment to providing unbiased and accurate information remains steadfast, irrespective of any potential earnings.

Commitment to Honest Reviews

Our dedication to authenticity extends to our reviews. Honesty is the bedrock upon which our recommendations are built. The majority of the products and services we review are ones we’ve interacted with personally. This hands-on approach ensures that the insights we share are based on actual experiences, fostering trust and confidence in your decision-making process.

Privacy Considerations

Your privacy means a lot to us. When utilizing affiliate links on our site, rest assured that your personal information is treated with utmost care, in accordance with our Privacy Policy. This commitment to your security and data protection is an integral aspect of our ethos.

Invitation to Contact

Your engagement matters to us. We encourage you to reach out with any inquiries or concerns regarding our affiliate disclosure or any other facet of our content. Your feedback empowers us to continuously improve and ensure your experience with us is exceptional.

Clear Disclosure Location

Our commitment to transparency is palpable in the positioning of our disclosure statement. Located at the end of each post, it offers immediate access to crucial information. We’re dedicated to making sure that transparency is both a guiding principle and a readily accessible resource.

Consistent Tone and Language

While our website’s typical tone is often characterized by informality, wit, and a sense of camaraderie, we understand the significance of employing a serious and trustworthy tone when it comes to matters of disclosure. The same values that underpin our other content segments persist here, ensuring a seamless alignment between our disclosure and our overall message.

Adherence to Program and FTC Requirements

Our commitment goes beyond mere compliance. It encompasses a comprehensive commitment to upholding the requirements of all pertinent affiliate programs, transcending the bounds of Amazon’s stipulations. Our dedication to legality, ethics, and responsibility is unwavering, ensuring that our practices consistently align with industry standards.


At The Broke Backpacker, our journey is founded upon authenticity, curiosity, and community. Your participation is essential in helping us achieve our mission. We deeply appreciate your consideration of the implications of affiliate links on our endeavors.
