Where can I find my ID?

How much will I earn from sales of one ticket or hotel booking?
We pay 50–70% of our income. On average, you will earn from 6 USD for each ticket and about 15 USD for hotel booking.
Try our tools
Tools are first and foremost. You have to work with them while writing an article. So let’s go through each tool.
To create the tickets search link, go to the page «Text links». By default, you already have the Jetradar homepage link. At this point, you can change the link text, for example, write «Cheap air tickets to every corner of the world», or change the language and tick off «open in a new window» (to protect a reader from closing your article accidentally).
In addition, you can also create links to a specific route and map. To do this, you should enter the city of departure and arrival.
The same is with hotels. By default, you have the Hotellook homepage link. To share the link to the specific hotel or city with the reader, you should open «Advanced settings», write a geographical name in the «City/Hotel» section and select the one from the drop-down list. Done! The link in the first line of «Your URL» is waiting for you. Now you can copy the ready-made link from the first line and paste it into the text of the article.

This is a form constructor for independent customization. It is better to place it at the end of the article.
Here you can adapt your site’s design: change the color of the form, round its corners, and adjust the width. In addition to design, you can choose what you’d like to display in the form: only air tickets, only hotels or air tickets + hotels. We advise you to enable the block of «best deals», that is a creeping line under the form with low prices.
You can specify additional information in the form: cities and dates of departure and arrival, the city or the hotel and dates of arrival and departure, language, as well as currency.
