    *** New Design ***
    Take a look at the clean new design of TravelNow.com! In order to see the design if you are cookied with your affiliate information, you can go to http://www.travelnow.com/index.jsp?cid=1 We expect the improved searching interface to increase the overall look to book of our affiliates.

    This design should not affect any private labels. If you are not using a private label, the look of your links has changed over to the new design. If you prefer the old design (with blue stripes in the background), please let us know and your account manager can set your account to the previous look and feel.

    Our Affiliate Center will also be unveiling a new look in the near future. We are excited about the opportunity to streamline our information and offer more helpful information for Affiliates learning about setting up sites and working with search engines among the many other challenges faced by affiliates. If there is something you would like to see in the Affiliate Center, please let us know!

    *** WebMerge Discount ***
    Top affiliates have learned the value of our databases. The databases we offer can help create literally thousands of targeted pages focusing on specials, cities or even specific hotels. We have negotiated a special price with FourthWorld Software on their database automation product, WebMerge. WebMerge promises to “Publish any database or spreadsheet with templates from any HTML editor
    on any Web server.” You can download WebMerge for $20 off the regular price of $79. For your discounted copy, please go to * and enter the promotion code “IAN44288”

    *** Specials Database ***
    Have you visited our database section of the Affiliate Center recently? You can find it under “Integration.” This collection of available databases includes our seasonal specials such as our upcoming NCAA specials. Please let you account manager know if you have questions about these databases and send us a note when you add the information to your site!

    *** Collections at 80%! ***
    Our GDS collections have always led the Industry – but we officially reached a milestone on December 31 when our collections hit the 80% mark! The tireless work of our collections team has resulted in collections being made from many properties that most companies would have written off as bad debt. We hear constantly from affiliates who ask about a payment in their account from months or even years ago. These collections are normal from a department that won’t accept being the best in the Industry as enough of a goal.



    As always, thank you for being an Interactive Affiliate Network affiliate. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help increase your bookings!
