Travelpayouts stands out by offering not just competitive reward rates, all the same you get with direct affiliate programs or networks plus exclusive benefits such as special increased rates, promo codes, and promotions to help you earn more. Let’s delve into how we can help you maximize your earning potential in travel partner marketing.

Equal Rewards, Extraordinary Perks: The Benefits of Travelpayouts for Partners

Competitive Reward Rates Across the Board

Travelpayouts promises reward rates on par with those offered by direct brand affiliate programs or other affiliate networks (with rare exceptions). We pride ourselves on ensuring that your rewards remain intact, without deducting any portion of your earnings. For a deeper insight into our practices, we encourage you to explore our article “Travelpayouts Explained: How We Work, Earn, and Help You Succeed”.

It’s important to note that differences in how rewards are calculated may lead to misconceptions. For instance, while a direct affiliate program like Booking.com might offer a 25% revenue share, we offer 4% of the booking value, which is essentially the same amount of money, just in different representations. The ‘booking value percentage’ approach helps our partners better understand and manage their earnings, ensuring transparency and ease.

Exclusive Rewards for Our Partners

Thanks to our significant impact on generating bookings, we often negotiate unique enhanced rewards with brands, including benefits that aren’t available through their direct affiliate programs.

For example, during events like the Black Friday Sprint in November 2023, we secured exclusive increased rewards and special conditions from several brands specifically for our partners.

  4. Almost every partner program has affiliate widgets, which increase the average conversion rate to bookings by 2.5 times with the help of links.

Moreover, our vast experience in travel affiliate marketing (woah, is it 11 years already?!) allows us to offer valuable advice on monetizing your travel blog. Plus, our responsive support team is always on hand to assist you.

We collaborate with industry experts who frequently share their insights with our partners.
