    Has anyone been with any hotel booking affiliate programs and what have your experiences been with them?

    I've been with Agoda as an affiliate for my travel sites and although they were once very generous with their payouts, they have started to skim the affiliate earnings and are unresponsive to any emails, so I'm looking for another affiliate to go with.

    I've looked at bookingcom but they don't seem to have any info on cookie life for referrals and they don't seem to respond to email queries at all, plus they are owned by the same company that owns Agoda so things could be just as bad or worse if I go with them.

    My sites are travel sites for Asia (Thailand and Singapore) so Agoda and bookingcom were ideal for my sites as they are the largest in Asia for hotels but a future as an affiliate with them doesn't look too good at this point.

    There is ido24com but i haven't heard any feedback of anyone who has used them and basically, there isn't a whole lot of feedback anywhere on the net for the first 2 affiliates that I mentioned either. Ido24com seems to good to be true with the lifetime cookies for referrals and high commissions so i'd love to hear from anyone who has used them?

    There are other affiliates, but they are very stingy with their payouts, but if anyone has been with any of the affiliates above or any others - good or bad, I'd like to hear the feedback.

    I know there are other threads in the forum that mention Agoda and bookingcom, but there is not much feedback and follow up on how good they are.

    Im discussing a new travel affiliate with an up and coming travel site, let me find out what I can, they will be looking for new user acquisition soon, so this is in their best interest.

    PM me if you want to chat details, I can customize the program a bit if they allow me to broker it. (The system isnt in place yet, but might be soon.)

    A heaps cool crowd we have in this thread, one was bored with my crappy words, the next was not interested in my so called theory and gave reference to an affiliate site which has no mention to travel anywhere.

    Jonnyroq, I can't PM you and am not allowed to post my details here, sorry and thanks for the suggestion.
