Hello
I hope to do some affiliate marketing with my travel blog to generate passive revenue for future travels; before I commence adding any links, I wanted to see if it was possible to do this via Travellerspoint. In reading the T&Cs, am I correct in interpreting that adding affiliate links to my blog would breach the Code of Conduct? Therefore, it is not allowed?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi. One of the moderators will answer you soon. Advertising is not allowed, but we are allowed to post links to places we think will be helpful to fellow travelers. For example if you eat at a restaurant you really like, it's okay to post a link to their web site or if you visit a museum that seems very interesting, you can post a link to their web site. You can do Tips and that is what we used to do on Virtual Tourist before it was taken down, but here I find it easier to just put the links right in my blogs so as you read about my experience, you can check the link and see if you might want to visit too.

You can click on anyone's screen name and go directly to their Profile Page where you can find their blogs and see how people deal with this. I am a subscribing member and that may also make a difference.

You will get an official answer soon TravellersPoint covers the entire world and there are many time zones so it can sometimes take more than 24 hours to get an answer.

Hi Georgina, you are correct. Affiliate links aren't allowed.
