How Attractions Near Me works

You might be wondering how Attractions Near Me works. We think it’s important that we’re transparent about the value our service can bring you, but also the limitations of our website and other methods that we use to communicate with you.

We’re journalistic at heart, with the aim of helping you to get the most from your family days out. We do this by seeking out great attraction and travel deals, tips and competitions. We do not offer any products or services ourselves – we signpost you to those that do via links. While we are careful to always cover reputable companies, we’re not perfect, so remember that you use this information at your own risk and we can’t accept liability if things go wrong.

So if we don’t offer any products ourselves, how do we sustain the service? Many of our links are affiliated which means that if you purchase a product or service via these links, a small contribution may be made to Attractions Near Me. You shouldn’t notice any difference, as these links don’t impact the products at all. If we’re unable to get a contribution from a company, we’ll still include the link anyway – it’s important to us that we cover the whole market.

Lastly, do not construe the information we provide as financial advice. Always do your own research to ensure a product or service is right for you and your individual circumstances.

Promotion Terms and Conditions

Attractions Near Me actively promotes third-party vouchers, promotional codes and attraction tickets. When Attractions Near Me directs you to third party providers of vouchers, promotional codes and attraction tickets you are bound by the provider’s Terms and Conditions in addition to any terms and conditions stated by Attractions Near Me. The provider is solely responsible for all customer service in connection with your purchase, Attractions Near Me has no liability for such service. Whilst we have made every effort to ensure that the third parties we direct you to are legitimate, Attractions Near Me cannot be held responsible for any problems obtaining or using vouchers, promotional codes, attraction tickets or any other service. Please ensure that you review the third parties Terms and Conditions as they may include date restrictions and limitations on available services.

Modification of Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change or modify this Privacy Policy, or any policy or guideline of the Site or Services, at any time and in our sole discretion. Any changes or modification will be effective immediately upon posting of the revisions to the Site or Services. You waive any right you may have to receive specific notice of such changes or modifications. Your continued use of the Site or Services following the posting of changes or modifications will confirm your acceptance of such changes or modifications. Please review these terms and conditions periodically, and check the version date for changes.
