Expedia’s agent affiliate program to roll out new dynamic hotel commission model

Expedia Travel Agent Affiliate Programme has unveiled a new commission structure more akin to a revenue sharing model than a flat fee. It offers travel agents the opportunity to “choose hotels with the commissions that can maximise profitability for their business”.

Diego Pedrani, senior director, Expedia Partner Solutions, said: “Our new dynamic model was developed specifically with feedback about commissions in mind. It incentivises agencies to focus, where possible, on hotels that pay Expedia higher commission and where we can share that upside with agents".

Four different commission levels are available: Basic, Basic+, Premium and Premium+ which give agents the control and flexibility to optimise their earning potential.

Premium+ level allows agents to share in the upside where hotels offer Expedia higher margins.
