Tourism Boards and Travel Companies
If you’re a Tourism Board looking for exposure for your family friendly attractions then get in touch.
You’ll get a detailed article, photographs and social media promotion.
If your hotel, guest house or homestay prides itself on being family friendly then we’d love to review and recommend it on the blog and social media channels.
We can also cover more quirky places to stay, so if you’d like us to promote your glamping or camp site, treehouse, castle or any other accommodation that kids will love, then get in touch!

We’re keen to be brand ambassadors for family travel related products that we love.
As brand ambassadors, we’ll feature your product regularly on the blog and across social media.
We’re happy to write articles featuring your destination or family travel related product. The posts will be featured on the blog and shared across our social media channels.
We will work with you to create a bespoke package for the above services.
We do not accept any guest posts.
Once in a blue moon we may publish guest posts from other family travel bloggers who are personally known to us.
Why choose us?
Why should you work with bloggers?
An increasing amount of people (including us!) look to blogs for their travel inspiration and to book trips.
Blogs often show the realities of travelling and what you can expect when you’re on the ground. Blogs can be particularly helpful when planning an itinerary and researching the best things to do at a given location. They’re especially useful if you want to work out what you can manage to do in a day – ideal if you’ve got small kids in tow!
We’ve often changed our travel plans or found a new destination from reading travel blogs, whether they’re family travel blogs or not.
Why Kids and Compass?
We are always honest in our articles – while we are by nature optimists and always look for the positive, we will say what did and didn’t work for our family (often through our own mistakes, I might add!).
This helps to build up trust with our readers.
We’ll only promote products, trips and destinations we agree with ethically – so no riding elephants or visiting drugged tigers for example. We also won’t be going to North Korea any time soon.
