About CheckedHolidays

CheckedHolidays was founded in 2012 after noticing a lot of misinformation on the internet about holiday destinations. This misinformation negatively impacted people’s holidays, so we made a YouTube video to set this misinformation straight. After it was picked up and featured in Express, it reached over 100 000 viewers. From there, we got inspired to do more!




2019 was the first full year for the website, reaching about 1 000 readers each month. Now in 2022, there are over 30 000 unique English language readers each month.

Since august 2022 the website is available in all major European languages, growing the amount of readers even faster.

The goal for this website in 2023 is to help over HALF A MILLION people have better holidays!


The YouTube channel started in 2012 but only got more videos in 2015 and even more in 2018. After a huge decline in view in 2020 because of travel restrictions, it currently reaches over 125 000 viewers each month and growing.

Collaborations & advertising

On CheckedHolidays.com, we talk about the negative and positive of holiday destinations to give the best holiday advice. It is one of the reasons our site is trusted and loved by an ever-growing readership. To keep offering high-quality and independent holiday advice, we don’t do paid promotions for products or services we don’t believe in. However, if you wish to work with us…here are some great options that work for us and you.

  • Hotels: If you have a hotel with great reviews online that lives up to it in real life and would like us to include your hotel on our website free of charge, contact us. We will make sure to visit your hotel during our next visit to that area. If it matches online pictures and reviews, we will include it free of charge.
  • Linking to your hotel: If we are already advising your hotel on our website and you want us to link it to your website, that is possible.
  • New and updated hotels: If you recently added a new build or recently updated hotel, we can be sure that this hotel will be one we want to advise. We can help you promote it with multiple videos about it on our YouTube channel, in the live streams and include/ongoing promote in the website content.
  • Advertising: If you wish to place your advertisements on the website this is always possible with Google Adwords. However, if you want only to put yours and have us remove all others, you can do so directly with us to make yours more visible and convert better.
  • Become a partner: If you have an affiliate program that you think might be interesting to us, we will first test your service and see if we are interested in collaborating. Then you can join Booking.com, GetYourGuide and ShuttleDirect as one of our long-term partners.
