Press Trips / Sponsorships

Quirky Travel Guy is always willing to consider sponsored trips to destinations that complement the theme of the site. I cover everything from national parks to urban adventures to small-town life, taking a special interest in fun and offbeat attractions around the world.

For me, every trip is a big deal, and that’s reflected with far more in-depth coverage than you’ll see on many other travel blogs. I’ll deliver as many articles as it takes to cover all the cool things about your city or state. Many of the places I visit are given the Featured Travel Destinations label, which means a minimum of four in-depth articles about the region, plus a handful of additional posts under the Quirky Attractions banner.

If it’s a really special destination, I may be willing to devote an entire month of coverage, as I did when I published more than 20 posts from Alaska – the most complete coverage of the state ever seen on a travel blog.

I will write honestly about your destination and do my best to put a fun spin on the biggest attractions and to seek out cool places that my readers would be interested in, which are often under-the-radar spots.
