Guestlink + Affiliates
Push your availability out further
Guestlink + Affiliates gives your property the opportunity to be bookable on our affiliated websites with no additional updating of availability as these channels are all linked directly to your Guestlink account. The list of websites bookable through Guestlink + Affiliates is increasing all the time. These include many destination websites, national websites and overnighters. Overnighters on your local venues and attraction websites show bookable accommodation so that visitors can easily extend their stay. Appearing on these websites advertises your business to different audiences and is a great way of increasing your bookings.
- Increase advertising potential - Advertise on many other websites but only update once.
- Increase bookings - More exposure equals more bookings.
- Reach more visitors - Extend the variety of websites you are published on.
- Cost effective- Low commission rates.
- Works with Guestlink- Updating your Guestlink account will update all the channels you are linked to using the affiliates scheme
How do I find out which channels I can link to?
In your Guestlink account under the My Channels tab you will see a list of affiliated websites you could potentially be bookable on. In this list of channels you have the option to opt in or opt out at anytime.
What happens if a visitor cancels?
We charge commission on bookings after checkout and provided you have updated the status in Guestlink we do not charge commission on cancelled or no show bookings.
How do I track progress of affiliates?
To keep track of how each individual channel is working for your business, check the Reports tab in Guestlink, this shows how many views, bookings and referrals you have had. Being an affiliate will also give you a Standard entry on www.roomcheck.co.uk. Our Roomcheck website is a national booking website which advertises "Great places to stay and discover".
I spent several months thinking about joining Guestlink and its affiliates, when I finally made the decision and signed up I went 'live' at 10 o'clock
one morning and by 9 o'clock that night I had a 4 night booking for 3! Should have signed up months ago.
