Affiliotel is an Affiliation Marketing Agency specialized in the hospitality industry. We drive high quality traffic to our clients’ websites through our network of publishers (or affiliates) as well as through our own bookhotels.direct website.
Publishers have travel or lifestyle websites (or blogs), which can be used to promote our clients’ websites. We offer advanced tracking technology to record when traffic generated by affiliate websites results in bookings. If a booking results in a completed stay, publishers are paid a commission on the sales generated (CPA = cost per acquisition as opposed to CPS = cost per click). Affiliotel handles all tracking, reporting and payments. For both publishers and hoteliers this is a hassle-free and low-risk advertising model.
The major selling point for hoteliers is that OTA’s (Online Travel Agent, like Booking.com, Expedia, HRS, etc) are by-passed. Other benefits are outlined below and include increased traffic to your official website, greater potential for bookings and profit, and the real advantage of “owning the relationship” with the customer.
Affiliotel is the first Affiliate Marketing Agency solely dedicated to the hotel business and other short-term accommodation providers. We are only selling hospitality, no car parts, fashion or online dating or anything else: we know your business!
Your company will ONLY pay a commission over each booking and completed stay generated through your own website and booking engine. It is a risk-free advertising model, perfect for hoteliers who want to gain international exposure and generate direct sales with a minimum cost. Performance-based marketing is a quick, cheap and effective way to promote your business.
Measure your promotional activities
Reach and engage new and existing guests in a measureable way. We use advanced tracking technology software to record when traffic generated by bookhotelsdirect.com or affiliate sites results in bookings. No need for you to spend time and money tracking leads. We will provide you with simple report details leaving you time for giving your guests a memorable experience.
Benefit from the trend among consumers of preferring to book direct with a hotel. This direct contact maximizes your chances to convert them into buyers. Once on your site, visitors can browse all your pages, explore the totality of your offers and choose additional services bringing you additional income.
If your booking engine has a possibility to give discounts, promotions, coupons or other agreed rates you can further expand the possibilities gaining more direct bookings through our platform.
Own the booking channel
As customers book into your website’s booking engine, you “own” the guest relationship/traveller profile. For instance you can collect payment deposits and store all booking details in your own system. You can presell and live up to your clients’ expectations, as well perform after-sales to get feedback on your offerings.
We select only affiliates that meet our criteria: quality travel and lifestyle websites and blogs, like www.dnahotels.com and www.charmhotelsweb.com. By signing up you will have access to our publisher database and you can actively connect with them.
There is no need to sign up and pay for multiple regional or country-specific affiliate marketing agencies. You sign up once and don’t have to bother with country, region or language specifics.

Q & A
How does it work?

Do I need a channel manager?
We are not another online travel agent. By implementing the code there is not even need for a channel manager.
Do I need to sign into an extranet?
No, also not needed. You keep the availability on your website up-to-date as usual and no extra effort needs to be made.
