    Travel & Real Estate RSS feeds hard to find
    There is plenty of travel & real Estate related rss feeds online but trying to find merchants with affilate programs that offer them is not that easy. Expedia have a few for travel but other than that there is not much around for affiliates from what I have found. If you know of merchants offering RSS feeds in travel or real estate than please let us know.

    World Choice Travel has RSS feeds for hotels in their indy program. WCT is the "private label" version of the Travelocity inventory. I do not use their RSS feeds (opting instead for my own database implementation), but they are available by major city (250+) for US coverage and by country for worldwide coverage.

    I would also be interested in learning about others in the travel industry and about any in the Real Estate vertical. I have two "local" sites that attract a LOT of real estate traffic. I want to get a Real Estate License in the family so we can capitalize on actual referrals to active agents.

    Hi Beachy, thanks for the feedback. I also use XML from another company called IHS Advantage that is probably similar to WCT. What I'm looking for is just simple RSS feeds that can be hooked up to one page etc. The Expedia ones are a good example and I can select a few options before I make it with them which is great.

    Let's hope some Real Estate & Travel merchants start using RSS which is extremely easy to implement and can bring in so much income for the merchant, just a shame most merchants don't understand it or have the initiative to take their business to the next level.

    I would have liked that but I'm not going to the Affiliate Summit, live too far away, maybe I could next year.

    Yes they have a good variety of targeted feeds, I found them around the time I started this thread. Hotwire also have a couple but they have not included the required "Link" element.

    If I could display RSS feeds on my travel sites showing updated special offers or prices with my affiliate ID embedded in them, I would use them all the time.
