From My Window Seat Review Policy and Disclaimer
As From My Window Seat keeps growing in content and readership, it is imperative that readers and subscribers be in the loop about the destinations, products, and services that I recommend from time to time.
The destination content on From My Window Seat is free from influence. All of the content here is from my personal travels and so the write-ups about places, people, food, and culture are all from personal experiences. If I share a personal recommendation for a hotel, company, or an experience, the readers can be sure that it’s written fair and square after lots of research and presented without any personal gain in mind.
With the growing influence of travel bloggers and influencers, the opportunities to collaborate with brands and promote destinations, hotels, and tour companies also keep presenting themselves. Whenever a story is written after a Press Trip or a FAM Tour, it carries the relevant disclosure that the trip is sponsored. Similarly sponsored posts carry a note about them being sponsored. I pride myself on writing about and sharing fair and transparent travel experiences and this will continue to remain the guiding principle behind this website.
As a travel blogger and influencer, I am often offered the opportunity to review travel products and services and share them with From My Window Seat’s readers and followers.
- Through this review policy, I want both the readers and the sponsors to know that I DO NOT write positive reviews just because a product or service was provided to me free. I write fair and unbiased reviews based on my personal experience with the product/service.
- Readers and followers of this website can always expect a fair and honest opinion about the product/service being written about. If I don’t like a product I either do not mention it at all, or I communicate with the company and offer to write an honest review with both the pros and the cons. Before I accept a review though, I make it clear that my opinion cannot be bought.
- I am more likely to review a product if they allow me to give one away to a reader. Everyone likes trying new stuff, so I feel it is nice to offer incentives to my regular readers.
- I charge a small amount for reviews to justify the time, energy and effort that goes into reviewing a product/service.
Anything I recommend on this website is my opinion and personal experience. Readers are requested to double-check facts, rates, and companies before you count on them being there when you visit. Similarly for products, my reviews can guide about a product, but eventually, the onus of double-checking latest updates is with the readers.
Lastly, thank you. I value your trust in From My Window Seat and promise you integrity in all things I write and share.
