Nowadays, it is rare to find someone who doesn’t travel in some form, which is why travel affiliate marketing can be such a lucrative business! We have programs from different travel brands covering flights, hotels, car rentals, insurance, tours, and activities. With over 90 affiliate programs to choose from, there is no doubt that you will find something that resonates with your audience.

Whether you are a veteran affiliate marketer or just getting started, you are in the right place. We have all different types of bloggers, media buyers, YouTubers, social media influencers, and travel agencies making money through our partner programs. Even if you just want to promote to your family and friends, that works too!

Travelpayouts works on a CPA model, which stands for Cost Per Action. This means you will earn money when someone uses your unique affiliate link to make a purchase or visit a partner’s website. 

Each one of our travel affiliate programs lists the percentage or payment amount you can earn if someone makes a purchase using your unique link. You can see this under “rate” when viewing different programs. For example, let’s say a car rental program offers a 10% commission rate for any sales you make. You create your unique link and post it on your blog. Someone clicks on this link and rents a car for $500. You will receive $50!

When you first join Travelpayouts, you will see one program on your dashboard that you are automatically enrolled in: Aviasales. We’ve done this to help you get accustomed to how Travelpayouts works, but you can always partner with more programs to maximize your earnings.

To start earning money from this program, simply click on tools when you hover over the name of the program. From here, you will be taken to a variety of tools you can use to share offers.

The most commonly used tools are links. You can either use links offered by the advertiser or use the Link Generator Tool to create links to any page on the advertiser’s website that you want to promote. In both cases, the links will be unique to you. When someone clicks on your link and makes a purchase, you will earn! For programs you have already joined, you can view the commission rate in the “About” tab. is just one example of the numerous partnership opportunities available via Travelpayouts. There are over 90 other travel programs to choose from. You can search for and apply to more programs by going to “Programs” on the left-hand side.
