Post-pandemic traveling promises to be quite different from what we’re used to. Those of us who thrive on planning exciting trips might find ourselves stuck figuring out all the routes, places to stay, expenses, and formalities.
To help you find the best travel deals, a team from Toronto, Canada, and Vilnius, Lithuania, has created Eddy Travels, an AI-powered chatbot that’ll help you find the best travel deals. And what’s more, its affiliate program can help you monetize your website.
Earn commissions with travel sales
Launched in 2018, Eddy Travels received a pre-seed round of funding of 1.1 million Euros with the help of Techstars in 2020. Today, the company works with the world’s top travel operators, including Booking.com, Kiwi.com, Get Your Guide, and others. By simply using the AI chatbot on your website offered via a free WordPress plugin, the visitors can access many deals for flights, hotels, car rentals, and tours.
The process is quite simple. They choose what details they need — the departure and arrival cities and specific or ranged dates. Users can also filter for direct-only flights, flight times, number of passengers, and cabin class at the next step. Similar filters are available for “hotels”, “villas”, and “apartments”.
Having the free Eddy Travels plugin on your website would allow you to earn from 3% up to 12.5% in affiliate commissions. The app will also provide you with monthly reports. All you have to do is sign up to get an affiliate Partner ID, install the plugin on your website or add the chatbot widget to its header or footer and customize it to your liking. You can also integrate the bot into your social media and messengers.
