How do I get images of hotels for blog posts and social media content?

6 replies
I'm starting a travel related website and need images of hotels to use on articles that I will post on the site.

Is there any way of getting hold of images without breaching copyright? I notice many travel blogs and YouTube videos will have what appear to be generic photos of various hotels. Will they all have paid for these images?

    There are many websites that are available for using HD images for free for your blog posts and social media handles. All the pictures are of the best quality. You can try pixabay, pexels, Unsplash, and many more. Just Google it, and you'll get hundreds of websites.

    If what you need are photos of SPECIFIC hotels that you are recommending or reviewing....ask the hotel for some images. If you are advertising their venue, they may be very willing to provide photos.

      Aside from this... very often if you goto the hotels website, they will have a "press"section and often times photos will be available for this type of use.

    If you are talking about using photos of specific hotels just contact the hotels you want to use in the photos and ask for pictures or get permission to use what's already online. They may even be interested in an affiliate deal with you.

    Otherwise stock photos will work great.
