Earn Commission: We offer a 15% commission on bookings paid at the time of booking, 10% net rates on bookings that are invoiced. Please note that some conditions apply to be eligible for invoicing and not all products are eligible for this option. Certain products or add-ons may have a lower commission, you will be informed in those cases.
Savings For Your Guests: The 15% commission is yours. You’re welcome to share it with your guests as part of packages or as an add-on to your own products. For example, we can give you a 10% discount code to include in your guest confirmation email and you get to keep the other 5% from the commission.

Product Knowledge Sessions: We want your staff to feel confident booking your guests with us. We offer 1 hour training sessions that include training on how to do the bookings and on the adventures offered by our partners.
Industry Discounts and FAM Tours: The best way for your staff to get to know what there is to do in the region is to go out and explore. Our partners offer discounted and free access throughout the year along with industry FAM tours.
How it Works
The first step is to fill out the form below. Give us as much details as possible so that we can make sure to get you the right information. We’ll then arrange for a time to meet, discuss any questions you have and go over the details of the program. Our Vendor Agreement is available here.
The next step is to arrange a training session for your staff and to setup online bookings on your website, if you are interested. Both process are easy and we take care of all the details for you.
Bookings are done by your staff simply by going to a link on our website, no passwords to remember. We track the commissions and we process them by the 10th of the month following when the activity took place. You get paid on the last day of the month, as long as the balance owing is at least $50, otherwise it will carry forward until the month it reaches $50. For example, if you take a booking on September 28 for a tour on October 16 the commission will be processed by November 10 and you will be paid on November 30.
Fill out the form below and we’ll be in touch within 10 days to get you setup or answer any of your questions.
It will take a few minutes to complete the form. We want to get to know you and make sure that we understand how we can best work together. This information will be shared with all current partners.
