Affiliate Disclosure

Hello there, dear visitor to my website!

My name is Fida Wild, and my aim is to inspire you to visit Switzerland. The information on my Switzerland Insider Travel Guide is provided for free, as a service to you, the reader and future visitor to my country.

This website takes time and effort to build and to keep up to date. I list products from suppliers I think may provide additional value to you. Some, but not nearly all, of these suppliers offer compensation, for example when you book your hotel, tour, buy your train pass etc. However, please know this has no influence on the information I provide.

I do NOT accept free products in exchange for reviews. When I publish an article about a specific destination, hotel, attraction or give information about rail passes or any other product, I do so because I think the information could be valuable to you. All articles are based on my personal opinion or those of contributors to my Switzerland Insider Travel Guide.

I do accept compensation form advertisers, and affiliates will compensate me with a small commission when you purchase a product - , which - of course - is with no additional cost to you!

But I also link to companies that do not compensate me. I simply recommend them because I think the information and their products are valuable to you.

Please make sure that you verify all information before you purchase any of the products. SwissVistas disclaims any liability arising directly or indirectly from using any of the products listed.

Where does the money go?

The money from affiliate sales helps me to keep the content on this website free of charge, to pay my internet provider, travel for research purposes and buy products and services that I need to keep the website going (just to name a few: website editor, photo shop programs, travel app for itineraries, newsletter providers, the occasional designer, and so on).

SwissVistas partner and advertising programs:

  • Google Adsense, a program that places ads on my website (I don't have a say in what kinds of ads are placed tough);
  • Amazon Services LLC Associates Program: an affiliate program designed to provide a means for sites to earn a few pennies by selling their products from their website. To obtain more information about how Amazon uses your data, see Amazon privacy policy;
  • Hotel Booking websites: HotelsCombined, TripAdvisor, HostelWorld, Interhome, HomeAway, e-domicil (all other links on my Accommodation Guide are there because I think they provide value for you, but I do not get compensated)
  • Tour companies: Viator, GetYourGuide, Isango, AlpenWild, Echo-Trails;
  • Rail Passes: The Swiss Travel Centre (STC);
  • Commission Junction: FlightNetwork, RailEurope, AutoEurope;
  • Site Sell Inc. Without SoloBuildIt, SwissVistas would not exist. I am neither a web-designer nor a savvy Internet marketer and didn't have a clue how to start a website and turn my passion about Switzerland into an e-business. I am very happy to recommend SiteSell Inc. to anybody who is interested in building a successful website. I do not receive payment for recommending SiteSell Inc.; however, I do receive a commission should you decide to purchase SoloBuildIt! - at no additional cost to you - the price is the same when you buy directly or indirectly from SBI! If you have any questions before you decide to buy this Sitebuilder, then you can talk to a real 'Site Builder'. You will receive answers directly from SoloBuildIt!-owners, people who know SiteSell Inc. inside-out. Just click here and off you go.

The storage of Amazon cookies and other affiliate cookies is based on the GDPR. I have a legitimate interest in this service since it only receives credit for referral fees if these cookies are set.

I select all products listed on this website, and I make sure they meet my high standards. They do not influence the content of my website. Articles are always based on my own experience and personal views. While I am not able to test all affiliate products personally, I research and check them for their usefulness and quality. I partner only with serious and reliable companies.

However, if you feel that your standards are not met, please let me know, as you may have information I do not. Your input will be taken seriously.

So, how can YOU support my humble website?

As mentioned above, I do provide all this information for free and work my but off to give you my opinion :-)

If you think the information helped you or you like what you see, I very much appreciate your help by:

Sharing this website

  • With friends and family;
  • By linking to my website, should you happen to have your own website or blog;
  • By becoming a fan and participating on my FB fan page (I love to see your pictures there);
  • By sharing articles you like on twitter, your facebook page, pinterest, stumbleupon, or wherever you think you'd like to give me your thumbs up

Supporting this website

  • By using my recommended Affiliate products: I do place affiliate links throughout the website, and each time you buy something I do get a few cents to buy myself a Rivella while sweating over the next article.
  • If you think the information and/or help you received is or was over-the-top helpful, and you really, really would feel guilty not being able to show me your support, you always can buy me a coffee by donating via PayPal. A little goes a long way for me.

Of course, all this only if you like what you see or if the information is or was helpful to you. I appreciate every bit of your help, be that in form of sharing this website or financially supporting my work.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

PS: I almost forgot. You also can support this website by posting your own Switzerland stories, tips and photos and by telling me and readers about your experience.
