Join the success of virtual interlining with Kiwi.com

Kiwi.com is a travel technology company, founded by Oliver Dlouhý and Jozef Képesi in 2012. Its proprietary algorithm allows users to combine flights (and other modes of transportation) from over 750 carriers into a single itinerary through a process called “virtual interlining.” You can now join the Kiwi.com affiliate program with Travelpayouts.

Kiwi.com overview

Most low-cost airlines do not have codeshare agreements with the big carriers. Kiwi.com removes this limitation by creating itineraries from a nearly limitless set of flight combinations.

The Kiwi.com algorithm finds connecting flights in the database – the largest one of its kind – creating completely new routes. Kiwi.com´s virtual Interlining is connecting the unconnected. Below, you can find the example of virtual interlined tickets:

How to earn with Kiwi.com

There are a number of ways in which you can send traffic to Kiwi.com. One of the easiest is by adding a search widget to your website. It is very easy – simply copy/paste the code.

Widgets work best when they accompany an article to support the content written on it. Where you decide to put it, is of course up to you, but it will convert better if it is above the fold.

You may choose to use an advertising banner instead. Banners require little interaction with the user, who only has to click on it to be redirected. They naturally support the brand better with their eye-catching messages. The best fit is above the fold, and on the right-hand side if you have your website divided into columns.

If you are most interested in using deep-links, the best practice is to accompany the clickable link with a call-to-action text, such as “Book here” or “Buy a flight.”
