How to manually create deep links to search results for flight tickets and hotels from Kiwi.com.
After connecting to Kiwi.com program you can start placing affiliate links to the brand website on your resources. Kiwi.com doesn’t support a deep link creation form or Chrome extension, you will only find ready-made links on the program’s tools page.
But there is still a way to manually create deep links to kiwi.com search and set up the exact parameters you want the visitor to see after following the link.
This article provides instructions on creating these links for different booking types.
How to create a One-way/Round-trip Kiwi.com deep link
To create a deep link for one-way or round-trip follow the steps below.
- Create a search link to kiwi.com. Use the following structure:
- from — IATA code of the departure place
- to — IATA code of the destination place
- departure — departure date
- return — return date.
If you specify to=anywhere, all flights from the departure point will be found. If the departure parameter is not set, the default search is a range of one month starting the next day to the return date. If the return parameter is not set, one-way tickets will be found.
Important! Only references containing deep links are taken into the dashboard in statistics. If you create a link to any page of kiwi.com without this parameter and follow the instructions below, the link will not be counted and the revenue will not be accrued.
