Air travel booking affiliate programs?

by J Bold 5 replies
Does anybody know a good air travel booking site that has an affiliate program? I'm looking and looking for one but haven't found what I'm looking for (dangling participle?). Anyway, I want an airline booking site that doesn't also have the option of booking hotels on their site. Sites like Orbitz and Expedia, etc. do this. Perhaps a major airline has a good affiliate program? Then it would be deciding which airline to choose. Anyway, thank you for your suggestions.

    You can find a number of airline companies who have an affiliate program, try CJ for a list of them.

    Travelocity has an affiliate program.

    But I don't understand why you are looking for an air travel affiliate site. Commissions for air travel are almost nonexistent. For example, a round trip flight from Texas to Hawaii in June of this year cost over $700, and the commission was a whopping $2. This one was booked through Travelocity. But it's not just Travelocity who is cutting down the commissions. It is the airlines. When a travel agent books a vacation, all their commission nowadays comes from hotels, car rentals, cruises - pretty much everything EXCEPT the airline tickets.

    Hope this doesn't screw up your plans too much, but I thought it better that you know up front.

    As mentioned above, the airline commissions are less than $5, so it is better to have a chance for an add on like hotels.

    If you go to CJ,com there are a few of both options there. Though even the "Flight" only places offer package upsells, so you may not find 'exactly' what you are looking for.
