Opinions

All opinions and views mentioned on Luxury Backpack are my own (Emily Bloor) or the featured author of the post (named in the specific post) and they are mentioned for information, enjoyment and reviewing purposes only. Every destination is brought to you from my or a featured writers opinion.

Reliability

I will never be paid or incentivised to speak positively about a product or destination if I do not agree. I want my readers to feel as though they can trust what I say, and that they are not being sold products for the sake of it. If I have been sent a product or on a trip in exchange for a review, this will be stated in the post. However, I will only review a product or destination with utter honesty. In some cases, if I really dislike them, I will sometimes choose not to feature them entirely. When it comes to safety in a destination I will always bring this to the attention of my readers and will not gloss over the truth. I only feature items and destinations that I feel deserve to be featured in some way or form.

Affiliates

I utilise a number of affiliate commission services including Shop Style and Amazon Services LLC Associates Program to earn a percentage of commission on product sales, alike to the majority of bloggers. This site therefore uses cookies. The links or products don’t cost the buyer any more than they normally would – the commission is taken from the retailer via the commission platform, and therefore is a little thank you from the retailer for me showing you the product. This simply helps towards covering the costs of hosting the blog and other fees that go towards running it, and is greatly appreciated!

Please do not use any of the imagery for professional purposes or material. If you would like to use any of the images on Luxury Backpack for your blog post or social media, please credit in the caption and link back to this blog.
