There are lots of reasons to work with TripShock, but we understand you may have questions

How much do I earn as an affiliate?

Earn a 25% share of TripShock’s commission on each and every activity your guests complete. User engagement and earning reports are made available daily in a custom affiliate portal, with monthly payment distributions.

How can I trust TripShock activities and tours?

You can feel at ease selling TripShock tours and attractions. We represent only the best experiences. All operators are vetted during the application process, with only the most qualified receiving a listing on Tripshock.com. If customers need more assistance at any time, our expert team of local reservationists handle guest’s booking and questions – ensuring the best possible experiences for your guests.

What does it cost to sign up for the TripShock Affiliate Program?

Signing up with TripShock costs you absolutely zero dollars. There is no monthly subscription, administration fee, or hidden annual charges. The only charge is a commission when a booking is realized by the consumer.

What kind of support should I expect once I sign up?

All TripShock Affiliates receive complimentary assistance via email for help setting up your account, learning our tools, and optimizing your earning potential. Even better, TripShock provides each affiliate with a dashboard that lets you keep track of statistics, create custom affiliate links, manage your commissions and payments, and more!


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! We’re only an email or call away.

My company operates in several locations. Can my affiliate account service more than just one location?

You can create custom links directing travelers to any and all destinations on our site.

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.

How long will it take for me to make a profit?

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.
