Travel Affiliate Trends

| Comment

Something I am seeing a lot of lately and not liking is travel affiliates cutting their programs - sometimes cutting things out all together (like cruises), shortening cookie length from 45 or 30 days to 7 days or less (one well know regional travel site recently cut their cookie life to one day!), to of course lowering commissions.

I know travel is hurting, but when you take a content partner blog or website, and suddenly give them no reason to promote your sales - well - you are going to do even less business, and anything you might think you are saving is actually going to disappear. Plus it leave a very bad taste in the publishers mouth going forward. In mine anyway...

Have you been seeing your commissions or terms decrease in value? Leave a comment and let us know.
