What is QuickStart?

QuickStart is our industry leading holiday comparison technology. It helps you to monetize your site more effectively by adding preconfigured search boxes and relevant links within your content, directing users to search results pages featuring live pricing and availability from top UK tour operators and online travel agents. Use the search box or one of the links above to try it out.

Which travel brands are included in the results?

We work with merchants from all networks. The current list includes Ebookers, On the Beach, and Thomas Cook (includes: Airtours, Flexible Trips, Manos, ThomasCook.com, Thomas Cook Style).

How much does it cost and what can I earn?

It's completely free to sign up and start using our service. We don't hide 'charges' by taking a split of your commissions from the merchants, leaving you with 100% of the revenues earned as a result of any purchases on the merchant's website by your visitors.

How do I get paid?

You get paid directly via each merchant's affiliate network, in the same way as you do currently when you promote a merchant.

Sounds great! What's the catch?

QuickStart is completely free of charge to publishers generating up to 10,000 searches per month. Distribute Travel offer a range of cost-effective licensing options for any publishers looking to generate higher levels of traffic or requiring deeper levels of customisation. We subsidise the cost of providing the service by selling banner advertising slots on either side of the search results pages.

How do I start using the service?

Firstly, apply below to submit your site(s) for approval. We aim to review all new sites within 2 working days. On approval, enter your network IDs for each affiliate network, and generate the code to add to your pages. Once you've pasted this in to your site, you'll be up and running straight away.

How will QuickStart help me to earn more from my site?

Currently your visitors click on individual brand's banners and links, or use a searchbox to get results for just one holiday company. QuickStart improves on this by giving your visitors a much quicker way to compare the market. With one searchbox or deeplink your visitors will have access to a powerful comparison engine that searches millions of live deals from top UK travel brands.

It increases the likelihood of your visitors generating clicks to several merchants in one visit, significantly increasing the opportunity of earning a commission from each visitor.

It also works across multiple affiliate networks, which is unique in the market.

What are the customisation options?

You can choose the text and background colour of each searchbox to fit with the style of your site. If you are more technically minded, you can also wrap your own HTML code around the searchbox to add your own title graphics, borders etc.

The results page that opens in a new window is not customisable. If you are looking for a customised results page to fit with the style of your website, Distribute Travel offer a range of licensing options allowing you to deeply customise the results pages and include your own headers and footers. Our bespoke white labels are ideal for publishers looking to generate over 10,000 searches a month. If this sounds like you, get in touch with us to discuss your requirements in more detail.

How can I target searchboxes and links to maximise my conversions?

Searchboxes are most effective when tailored to the content on the page. Generic searchboxes are ideal for home pages and non destination specific pages. Our tailored searchboxes are for location pages, as you can preset the destination, and only show fields for dates and who's going. This improves conversions as the searchboxes look to be specifically for that destination, and your visitors don't need to fill in where they want to go to again.

You can also embed links within your content to search dates rolling forward, i.e. 1 month ahead, as well as filtering by any combination of departure airport, destination country, region, or resort, star rating, board basis and budget.

Do I need to be approved on each merchant's affiliate programme?

Yes, you'll need to be signed up to each merchant's affiliate programme, so that your referrals will be tracked correctly by each network. You can choose which merchants to include in the results when you set QuickStart up.

Here's a list of all the current merchants and their networks:

Ebookers - TradeDoubler
On the Beach - AffiliateWindow
Thomas Cook - Affili.net (includes: Airtours, Flexible Trips, Manos, Thomas Cook, Thomas Cook Style)

If you're not approved on any of these programmes, you can opt out of any unapproved programme.

How can I get technical support?

Our searchboxes and deeplinks are quick and easy to add to your website. Follow the simple instructions in our tools and you'll be up and running within minutes. If you need any help, then visit our Knowledgebase or contact our support team via the Helpdesk.
