    I believe you can affiliate with travel companies, tourist attractions, hotels, etc. However I don't know the specifics of it.
    I'm curious too!

    If nothing else works, they still have ads to put on their website.

    They are the big players who have direct affiliation with services offered. You can earn money of travel sites even if you have a small website. Signup for Expedia affiliate program. It is hot favorite among the webmasters and they do pay for sure.
