Thank you for your interest in advertising on Chicky Bus, a site with a diverse audience of predominantly independent travelers who enjoy reading about my mostly solo journeys and “authentic” travel experiences off the beaten path.

The Concept

Chickybus is more than just a name; it’s a concept and a brand that could play a key role in promoting your product or service. Readership is growing, with leaps in traffic being made every month; additionally, the site and its posts are heavily promoted on Twitter and Facebook. Traffic is also derived from StumbleUpon and Youtube.

Please read the information below and then, if appropriate, contact me (include a link, please) to learn more and to discuss rates. Email: chickybus (at) yahoo.com (dot) com.


Ads of varying sizes (none animated, however) are possible on this site–on the homepage and/or on single post pages. The content must be relevant to travel either directly or indirectly.

Sponsored Posts

Paid sponsorship of posts is accepted on this site, but only in a limited sense. It is possible to pay for a link (relevant to travel) that I place at the end of a post that I was planning to write anyway. You could, for example, be a sponsor for a Trippy Travel Photo or Random Travel Moment  post. Guest posts and/or targeted posts written by your company or representatives are not permitted.

Press Trips*

If you work for an agency, tourism council or another organization that offers press trips, let’s talk. I speak Spanish nearly fluently, incidentally, and am very comfortable in Latin America. I am, of course, willing to travel nearly anywhere. Here’s a map of where I’ve been and where I’d like to go.

Product Reviews*

If a product is relevant to my readership, then I might be open to reviewing it. Items like backpacks, hiking boots, clothing, etc. are possibilities.

*Please keep in mind that whether I’m taking a sponsored press trip or reviewing a product, I will express my honest opinion about it and disclose that it was sponsored. Posts of this nature will remain on the homepage for approximately 1 week and will then remain in the archives. They will contain at least one link back to your site.

To inquire about any of the above options–or one not listed–please write me at chickybus (at) yahoo (dot) com. Thank you.

Note: There will be an additional PayPal transaction fee of approximate $9 added to all purchases.
