    Best Travel Affiliate Program
    I'm looking for the best travel affiliate program...not just for banners and text links, but the actual search widgets, pages, and destination guides to display on my site.

    What do you suggest?

    We have several networks that have forums here on ABW that market travel. You can contact them directly for advice and direction.

    Thanks Chuck, but I'm interested in hearing what users think, not a sales pitch from the actual affiliate partners...of course, their program is always the best!

    Affiliates are always asking what is selling so its worth it to talk directly with the program manager. Good luck getting member input, hope they respond.

    Heh. I've been dabbling in travel (hotels) for a while and have had success with white label indie programs. The network "link and banner" ones don't work as well - unless one works in a focused niche.

    The good ones - get monthly checks (or DD) from ARES, EAN, IHS, PPN and WCT. It's all about niche marketing, not trying to cover the whole country (or world) - the big guns are all over that. I've actually started to write a "how to" guide...

    Also remember that most people visit 22 sites before making a travel purchase = low conversion rates.
