EXPEDIA has launched its Travel Agent Affiliate Program (TAAP) in Malaysia, and is offering a 300 ringgit (US$96) bonus on top of commissions for the first 3,000 ringgit worth of bookings for new partners.
Travel experts who sign up with TAAP will gain access to Expedia’s global inventory of 145,000 hotels, be able to check availability of hotel rooms, activities and flights, and make bookings in real time.
Commission levels for TAAP are up to 10 per cent on hotels and activities, and 1.5 per cent on flights when booked as part of a package.
“Our Travel Agent Affiliate Program has been extremely successful in Europe, America, and Asia-Pacific, and we are very excited to bring it to the travel agent community in Malaysia,” said Charee Guico, travel agent distribution manager Southeast Asia, Expedia.
“We recognize that offline agents are a critical part of the travel landscape, and TAAP provides the perfect way for Expedia to work with this community,” she added.
TAAP was first launched in Italy in 2002 and has since expanded to the rest of Europe, America and Asia-Pacific. In South-east Asia, TAAP was introduced in Singapore in June (TTG Asia e-Daily, June 8), and currently has 3,000 partners in Asia-Pacific.
