How Our Influencer Program Works

Each submission is evaluated on a case by case basis and due to the high volume of requests received we are not able to fulfil all requests.

Visiting influencers are responsible for advising us of any changes to their travel plans immediately and may be subject to certain conditions, charges, resort fees and/or their own travel insurance requirements.

Upon request approval, specific tagging requirements will be provided for your trip. The amount of tagged posts will depend on the number of your follower and engagement, length of stay and activities you are provided with.
