We Work with Some of the Best Travel Brands


We work with Chute to source UGC. The platform is easy to work with, and we don’t have to worry about rights issues. Most of the content we publish is UGC because our community responds much more to UGC than stock from an engagement perspective. The integration of UGC into our content strategy has definitely been an effective one.
