Unlike the major Online Travel Agencies, our business is run by a small-but-mighty team who are dedicated to our customers, tour operators and affiliates. That means we work with you personally to see you be successful, including assisting you in creating your links, recommending better converting placements and even finding ways to further our affiliate partnership!

Yes! Try your affiliate links in promotional or confirmation emails, social media and Facebook groups, printed QR codes on print pieces, SMS texts, digital welcome or guide books, branded WiFi login pages or use the link yourself to book on behalf of a client or guest.
First: The quicker you get your links created and implemented, the better! As a general rule, roughly 3-5% of visitors will convert into a booking. But, keep in mind that you can also bolster your profitability (and how quickly you see that profitability) by creating more links, recognizing when narrower or broader scopes of content work for you, adding links to additional marketing channels, using the reporting tools and insights from our team to recognize top-converting products and more. If all else fails, get in touch with us! We’re happy to work with you one-on-one to see you be successful.
