UK businesses looking to create additional revenue streams can take advantage of a new affiliate offering from car hire price comparison site Carrentals.co.uk, which is offering 5% commission and a market leading conversion rate of 4%.
The company, which was voted Best Car Hire Website in the 2008 Travolution awards, has launched the new service to provide businesses of all sizes with a high quality, profitable affiliate solution featuring prices from leading rental providers such as Holiday Autos, Thrifty and AutoEurope.
Gareth Robinson, managing director of Carrentals.co.uk, said: “We have up to 50 rental companies compared on one site, low prices, and the technology to accurately manage the affiliate service. Our sales convert at around 4%, which is three times higher than any of our competitors, and with a 5% commission rate partners have the potential to achieve a healthy revenue stream.”
With the new affiliate solution businesses simply feature a Carrentals.co.uk banner on their website, which visitors click on to make their booking. All reservations are made through the Carrentals site, with clear tracking and reporting of booking figures and commission levels.
Robinson added: “This affiliate solution is designed to be easy for businesses to work with and make money from. Our site is one of the most respected and widely recognised in the car hire market. What we are now doing is opening this up to all UK companies who want to build their affiliate revenue streams. With well known brands such as Sixt and EasyCar featured, plus the ability to compare hundreds of prices, this is designed to be the best car hire affiliate programme available.”
The affiliate programme will run on the Webgains network and will be managed by award winning affiliate management agency, Arctic Sunrise.
Keith Budden of Arctic Sunrise said: “We are very excited about the launch of the new affiliate programme for Carrentals.co.uk and have worked with them to create a solution that is second to none. The new service provides all of the tools required by ‘super’ affiliates, while also offering the opportunity for new affiliates to earn revenue by promoting the Carrentals.co.uk comparison service. With the expertise both companies bring, we are committed to making this the leading programme for car hire affiliates.”
