Advertising & Affiliate Policy

WayToStay.com is a reader-supported independent travel website. We are able to provide free travel guides through a revenue model that includes participating in affiliate programs.

Our affiliate relationships with our partner brands mean we may earn a commission when you buy a product or service after being referred through us. We greatly appreciate it when you use our affiliate links to support our site.

We are extremely selective about who we will partner with. WayToStay receives many requests from potential partners, and if we feel that a product or service is not a good fit for our audience, we simply won’t recommend it. For the brands we do work with, we operate in their affiliate programs which allows us to make honest recommendations while earning revenue to keep this website alive.
