Third party links
Occasionally, at my discretion, I may include or offer third party products or services on this website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies.

Nonetheless, I seek to protect the integrity of my site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
From time to time, through Valerie & Valise I work with travel brands and tourism boards in order to experience and promote specific destinations, tours, activities, etc. Sometimes I receive compensation as part of these partnerships, which can take the form of cash, credit, or free activities, tours, gear, accommodation, flights, etc.
No matter who foots the bill, though, you can rest assured that I will ALWAYS give honest and unbiased reviews of my experiences. When I partner with a brand or tourism board, I still retain complete editorial control. I also never work with brands that I do not believe in or support – anything I recommend to you, I would (and do) use myself.
All such partnerships/exchanges are disclosed in each and every relevant blog post.
In some instances, I may include affiliate links in posts where I recommend specific gear, tours, or activities. If you purchase something through one of my affiliate links, I receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. These links are always disclosed.
Among other programs, Valerie & Valise is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
