Detailed description of query parameters

  • origin_iata/destination_iata - departure and arrival airports – strings. Recommended values: "IATA code for city".
  • depart_date/return_date - departure/return dates – string. Recommended format: "Y-m-d" ("yy-mm-dd" for JQuery).
  • one_way - “One way only” check box, equal to 1 or 0.
  • adults/children/infants - number of adults, children, and infants – numbers.

No more than nine seat-occupying passengers (adults + children) can be in a single query. Infants travel without their own seat and are carried by the adults. The number of infants cannot exceed the number of adults. If the number of infants is larger than the number of adults, the excess number of infants is counted as children (with their own seats).

  • marker - unique affiliate ID code, use at all times in the link except for when the query is being made to a White Label site (for White Labels, it is not necessary to specify a marker since the marker is automatically included; any marker explicitly specified in the URL will be considered an additional marker). An additional marker can be added if necessary (by adding a "." after the main marker).

  • checkIn - the check In date;
  • checkOut - the check out date;

Monitoring of link effectiveness

To see how effective your various affiliate links are, add an additional marker to each link when you create it. In the URL generation form, there is a special field for this purpose. You can create as many markers as you want and view reports on your account page, where you can find statistics for each marker.  


This is especially convenient if you are distributing multiple links and actively pursuing success in the travel affiliate program. For example, if you are placing links or search forms in the text of articles, you can create a separate marker for each link and search form, which tells you which links are giving you the most conversions and purchases. Then you can concentrate on writing more articles of this type and thus earn more commissions.
