Types of Links

Some of the links on this website are sponsored or affiliate links which help to financially support this site. By clicking the link and/or making a purchase, we may receive a small commission, but this does not affect the price of your purchase, nor does it effect our review and/or expression of opinion about a product or service.

Here at FlashPacking we use three types of text links in our articles, and they can be identified by how they look:

Internal Links: These are links within the site that show additional information we provide. They have no following icon. Sometimes they use the standard font, and sometimes they use a stylized font, but they never have a following icon.

External Links: These are links that lead to a site outside of our own. We receive no monetary compensation for these links, and only provide them as a service to our visitors. They have a following icon that is blue.

Affiliate Links: These are links that lead to a site outside of our own. We may receive monetary compensation for these links. They are provided as a service to our visitors, and no affiliate link will ever change or alter our product or service reviews, as all reviews provide honest opinions and commentary about what we find to be both positive and negative aspects of the subject matter. On occasion an affiliate link will be provided without a review. This is only ever done for goods or services that have passed our hands-on test for quality. They have a following icon that is green. We do this to clearly identify to our visitors the type of link, as we seek transparency in our actions.
