59+ Travel Affiliate Programs for Nomad and Travel Bloggers

Ready to break the mold with the travel affiliate programs you’re part of?

I had the pleasure of joining Lauren at Elle & Co. for an Ellechat called 11 Clever Ways To Use Affiliate Links and during our session, an interesting question came up from Christina at 72 Hours To Go:

“I am in the travel industry and am looking for innovative ways to use affiliate links besides hotel chains and travel gear. Any suggestions on products, services, or programs?”

While I responded with a short answer at the time, the question certainly stuck with me. I wanted to develop a list of travel affiliate programs that would excite Christina and other travel bloggers who were sick of promoting the same old, same old.

The end result is this list of 59+ travel affiliate programs I put together for today’s post. While the usual suspects are on the list – like hotels and gear that Christina mentioned – there’s also more diverse categories like programs in the travel photography, education and adventure space.


Since I share affiliate marketing strategies with awesome people like you, naturally my content may contain affiliate links for products I use and love. If you take action (i.e. subscribe, make a purchase) after clicking one of these links, I’ll earn some coffee money ☕️ which I promise to drink while creating more helpful content like this.Affiliate Disclosure


One thing to note: I couldn’t include a bunch of programs because they were destination specific or just outside the travel niche box. So before you dive into the individual programs listed below, here are a few brainstorming tips to help you find even more affiliate programs you could use on your travel blog:

  • Think about the goals your readers have in mind for their trips and research destination specific affiliate programs related to those goals. For example, if your readers are into adventures than every time you write about a new destination, search [Destination] + [Helicopter Rides / Skydiving / etc. ] + affiliate programs and see what comes up. Or if they want to catch a broadway show or hit the spa, try [Destination] + [Play / Spa] + affiliate programs. If you scroll to the bottom of Google, you’ll see related searches that could help too.
  • Think outside the travel industry when developing certain types of content. For example, if you’re writing a New York travel guide for fashionistas you could research and include affiliate links to fashion related companies as they relate to your guide.
  • Consider high paying travel affiliate programs or in other industries that would be relevant to the type of content you create. You’d be surprised by how many great ones are out there when you brainstorming [travel] + [ tools, software, deluxe, luxury, equipment, courses, digital products, etc.].
