Let’s start out with a basic, easy-to-read, easy-to-fold travel map of the USA. This Rand McNally USA Easy to Fold Travel Map will get us started as we plan our trip!
What are some of the most popular family vacation road trips?

We looked for examples of products you could feature for summer travel to Europe and as we said in the previous post, there were 286 products when we searched “Europe” and 98 when we narrowed that to “Europe travel”.
The guide shown at the right is one of the results returned. It’s super simple to click “Get HTML” and make your choices in the pop-up window. CJ is in the process of migrating the product catalog to their new Links section, so specific directions could change. But here’s how we found this guide:
- Login to CJ and go to Get Links
- Search by advertiser first: Maps.com
- Then click on products
- You’ll see a search box and text that says “Product catalog has more than 1000 items”.
- Type “Europe travel” in the search box
- Pick and choose the guides you want to feature – check the box to the left of each individual guide
- Click “Get HTML”
- Copy and paste the links
That looks like a lot of steps, but if you’re used to grabbing links at CJ, only the first 4 might be something new! It really is very easy!Share
Our recent theme for Maps.com promotion has been summer travel, specifically Europe. Planning summer travel requires maps and travel guides and if you’re familiar with datafeeds, you can expand your site offerings with the Maps.com datafeed at CJ.
The image here is a partial screenshot of the results when we searched for “Europe travel” in the product catalog. As you probably already know, the product catalog comes from the datafeed, so if you’re not ready to download the entire feed, you can pick several individual products and get links for them specifically.
There are more than 1000 products in the Maps.com datafeed, 286 come up in results for the search term “Europe” alone. When we narrowed the search to “Europe travel” we got 98 maps and guides you can promote for planning summer travel in Europe!
We’ve created a tutorial for downloading datafeeds at CJ if you’re not familiar. If you’re looking for links to individual products, enter your search terms in the product catalog and you’ll get results like the image here. Check off the ones you want and then “get html”.Share

Style and Function with Maps.com
Maps.com makes it easy to add any kind of map to your home!
I was having a fantastic conversation with my daughter the other day and it was on the Middle East. She was talking about history. Very interesting to say the least.
Now, I am sad to admit that geography is not my strong suit, and during that lovely talk, I wished I had a world map to refer to. Obviously I did more listening then talking, so I definitely need to brush up on my geography and with some help from Maps.com it will be that much easier!
There are so many different and classy ways I could incorporate a map into my home decor too. It could be as tasteful framed map as wall art or a gorgeous globe sitting on my sofa table.
My favorite way would have to be the Floor Globe. These are so beautiful and gives such a refined feel to any room. Whether it’s an office or family computer room or even the main living room!
I could use this deal, and get a fantastic price!
