5 good reasons to become a TAAP member

Expedia Travel Agent Affiliate Programme (TAAP) gives travel agents direct access to a vast worldwide inventory in a user-friendly platform and that leverages the company’s investments in technology and content.   TAAP agents earn commissions through Expedia’s broad selection of travel products: the competitive online rates seen by end-consumers are available to agents to offer their clients.   Agents who signed up with TAAP however will receive commission on these gross rates. Currently, hundreds of Irish travel agents have already enrolled in the programme.   Why not you?

Here are 5 reasons to be a TAAP member.

1 - The best technology in travel to serve you and your customers

Expedia invested USD 830M in technology and content in recent years, and TAAP agents benefit from this technology investment with access to powerful data and analytics, as well as the latest tools to help drive their business.   Our Travel Agent Affiliate Programme empowers travel agents with our industry-leading technology and inventory to enable them to best serve their customers.

2 - An inventory of hotels, airlines and activities constantly evolving

Partner with Expedia today and start earning additional revenue for your organization.   The commission-based partnerships allow you to deep-link to worldwide travel products:

  • 321,000 hotels worldwide
  • 475+ airlines
  • 150 car rental companies in over 75 countries
  • Thousands of activities at competitive and sometimes exclusive rates
3 - A win-win deal with your customer

TAAP agents have access to Expedia’s competitive online rates and can choose from hundreds of thousands of hotels and hundreds of airlines to find the best trip for their client’s individual needs. Additionally, Expedia offers package pricing (when purchasing flight + hotel together) that saves money (compared to booking separately).   Expedia’s world-class technology coupled with offering the largest combinations of flights and hotels than any other provider enables TAAP agents to secure the best prices for their clients. 

Thanks to the TAAP Portal, travel agents are able to make real-time bookings - perfect for last-minute bookings - to get the voucher within a minute after booking, to monitor and to report their activities simultaneously on www.expedia.ie/TAAP
