Welcome to my disclosure policy. I have created this page so that every reader of Madeira On The Map can access information on exactly how I earn money from the blog. Without your support, I wouldn’t be able to keep updating the website with information which, I hope, will give more people the confidence and information they need to visit Madeira for the first (or second, or third) time.

Brands I work with may include tourism boards, hotels, hostels, homestays, restaurants, tourist attractions, and transport or tour companies.

At the bottom of my post, I will always disclose when or if I receive a sponsored stay or product, whether this is a full or partial sponsor.
