Why Skyscanner’s affiliate program?
Skyscanner accepts click-outs from any country around the world without any geographic restrictions.
Skyscanner offers a variable rate for click-outs, averaging around £0.40.
Skyscanner has a short pay-out window, allowing you to monetise your traffic even before booking consumption is confirmed.
A click out to our partner’s site will be paid for even if a coupon code is used.
Affiliates can monetise traffic of users at all stages of their travel planning: from inspirational stage to effective time of purchase.

Frequently asked questions
How we can work together?
We have 3 types of tools available for our affiliates: Travel Search Widgets, Banners, Text Links. If you are interested in API or White Label products, apply here. Application success is subject to approval.

Flights, Hotels and Car Hire.
How do we get remunerated?
Skyscanner is paid by partners (OTA and airlines) when users redirect from Skyscanner on to their website. If users are brought to us by an affiliate partner then we share 50% of the generated revenue with affiliates.
We pay commission on Skyscanner generated revenue, not booking or basket value.
Example: if Skyscanner earned £10 revenue from a booking, we pay £5 commission to the publisher.
