How to make a test booking

Sometimes your website may have affiliate tools (links or widgets) and traffic, but no reservations. In this situation, you need to check that the affiliate tools are placed correctly.

If click-throughs and clicks are displayed in the statistics of your affiliate dashboard, the next step is to check your reservations. The majority of brands in the Travelpayouts affiliate platform have the opportunity to make free reservations or cancellations without losing money.

To check your reservations, go to the travel brand's website using an affiliate link or widget posted on your website. Make a reservation that offers free cancellation. The amount of rewards will appear in the Earnings column of the Reports section after a certain period of time.


Many brands initially send information about reservations and purchases, but the remuneration itself is transferred with a delay. For example, funds for hotel reservations are received only after the guest checks out. In this case, after making the reservation, the remuneration data will be displayed in the Potential earnings column.
