The Catholic Travel Guide is designed to be a place for Catholics to get useful information about destinations and more from a Catholic perspective.
Those big travel websites are great for giving general information and reviews (we read them ourselves) but let’s face it, many of those people are not Catholic and often don’t know about…or care about…many of the Catholic sites in the areas that they are visiting.
For example, you might find a review concerning Siena, Italy, that describes the city and some sights to see, but hardly any mention of Saint Catherine of Siena or the Eucharistic Miracle there. It can be frustrating for people to find the exact information they are looking for.
So a few of us got together and decided to make up for that gap by providing information especially for Catholic travelers.
We are not a non-profit….so we do run ads….have to pay the bills somehow! But we try to limit the number of ads and, of course, try to eliminate any that may conflict with Catholic values.
Advertisements you may see on our site:
The advertising on our site comes several sources.
1. One of these is Google Adsense. Google chooses the ads to display on each page according to three basic criteria:
→ The page subject.
→ What the viewer may have looked at previously.
→ Random placement by Google…whatever their program thinks might fit the subject on our page.
We try to filter out ads that are not appropriate, but occasionally one slips by us. This is sometimes beyond our control but feel free to contact us if you find inappropriate content and we will do what we can.
2. Another source is ads placed via affiliate advertising. In this case, we can be a bit more selective about the ads that show up on our website.
3. And, finally, we have a few direct advertisers that pay to put their ads on our site.
