Coolvoyage Destinations combines the experience, knowledge of our leading experts with your insatiable thirst for travel.
Whether you keep an eye out for far-flung adventures or discoveries closer to home; an adventure trip or a fortnight of fly-and-flop; an exhilarating family getaway or a solo trip with like-minded explorers, you’ll find all the inspiration you need right here.
The impact of the pandemic on the travel industry has underscored the importance of information you can trust. Travel has never been so sophisticated or more complicated.
That’s why we created Coolvoyage Destinations.
On these pages, you’ll find everything from up-to-date travel advice and hundreds of travel guides to countries and cities around the world to help you plan the best vacation possible.
The best hotels in Phuket, London and Costa Smeralda? Sorted. The top destinations for your family? Got that too. Would you like to be a cruiser but don’t know where to start? We have guides and myth busting explanations to help you choose the best option. We handpick the best travel experiences money can buy, whether you’re traveling with your family or alone.
To create these impartial guides, we work with an extensive network of travel journalists around the world who are tasked with finding the best hotels and field experiences. We only work with writers who truly know their destinations inside out and who have first-hand experience with the suggested hotels, villas or activities.
To bring these experiences to life, we encourage readers to book with our trusted travel partners – read more about them below. These could be a third-party booking platform, a company that creates bespoke itineraries for Coolvoyage visitors, or a travel provider that offers great deals on cruises, tours and vacations. Each vacation, hotel or experience provider has been chosen because it has been carefully vetted and signed off by our award-winning editorial team. Your trust is important to us, so we only work with holiday operators and suppliers who meet our and your extremely high standards.
How do we make our money?
At Coolvoyage Destinations we earn from three main revenue streams: Branded or Sponsored Content, Affiliate Links and Direct Offers. This revenue helps us sustain the content on this site and continue to invest in our award-winning online travel guidebook.
Branded content is content created by us for a provider such as a travel agency or national tourism board. The provider has full discretion over the content and all links within. The article is clearly labeled as “promoted content" (or similar). We only work with suppliers whose values and operating practices we believe align with our readers’ expectations.
Affiliate links are links within content that allow a user to make a reservation or purchase. If you click on a link and purchase a product, we may earn a commission. All products, brands or properties recommended on the site are selected by our authors and editors based on direct experience or in-depth knowledge of the area. The links we include in some articles to book or purchase are through booking platforms we trust to operate to a standard we believe our readers expect. Links are included only when relevant to the content. Articles on this site that contain affiliate links are clearly labeled as such at the start of a piece and the links themselves are marked with an asterisk.
We also have direct partnerships with a number of cruise lines and tour operators, which allows Coolvoyage Destinations to create exclusive offers that readers can purchase, such as the vacations you’ll see here, via the vacation offer cards you’ll find in the articles. These holidays have been selected with the integrity of the reader in mind and you can rest assured that they are of an extremely high standard.
The bottom line for Coolvoyage Destinations is that all of our guides are completely impartial and we are not swayed by any financial incentives a company might offer. If we say it’s the best, it’s because we believe it is.
The promise of Coolvoyage Destinations
We take our responsibility to the reader and traveler very seriously. After the blunt treatment from the travel industry during the pandemic and the uncertain landscape for travellers, it has never been more important to work with reliable and trustworthy partners who you can feel reassured about when booking.
We work with a select number of travel partners at Coolvoyage Destinations, from third-party hotel booking platforms to tour operators and cruise lines. Many of the companies and brands you see mentioned on our pages will already be familiar to the consumer; we only work with agencies whose values match ours. They include Booking.com, Agoda, Qatar Airways and other international companies
All featured partners go through a rigorous vetting process.
To begin with, the Coolvoyage Destinations board must approve each partner. The team, drawing on its decennial experience, will evaluate the company’s values, operating practices and reputation; as well as consider our personal experiences with each partner when it comes to customer support and feedback. We will review the company’s financial situation and consider its relevant certifications, such as Atol protection for a package tour company. When a travel provider has passed this rigorous vetting process, we will consider linking to their services where appropriate.
We take our independence and editorial integrity seriously. We continually rate our list of preferred partners and don’t hesitate to remove them if they fall short. That’s why our motto has “trust" – you can trust us to get you there.
