Carrentals.co.uk Expands Affiliate Offering through Trade Doubler
June 11, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsLeading car hire price comparison site Carrentals.co.uk is expanding its affiliate offering for UK businesses - offering 5% commission and a market leading conversion rate of 4% - through a new agreement with Trade Doubler.
The announcement comes following the company's launch of its affiliate programme earlier this year. The new agreement with Trade Doubler - Europe's most extensive and successful affiliate network – is designed to extend the reach of the Carrentals.co.uk affiliate programme further to a growing range of businesses looking for new revenue streams.
Gareth Robinson, managing director of Carrentals.co.uk, says: "In the current market a growing number of British businesses are recognising the potential of becoming an affiliate to boost revenue from new sources. Carrentals.co.uk is the UK's most successful car hire price comparison site, with our sales converting at around 4% - three times higher than any of our competitors.
"The affiliate programme has proved increasingly popular since we launched, and the agreement with Trade Doubler will extend our reach to a wider audience. With a 5% commission rate for partners, and an easy to integrate and track solution, becoming an affiliate has never been simpler."
Carrentals.co.uk was voted Best Car Hire Website in the 2008 Travolution awards, and compares prices from leading rental providers including Alamo, Budget, Holiday Autos, and Thrifty.
Through an affiliate deal any business can now feature a Carrentals.co.uk banner on their website, which visitors click on to make their car hire booking. All reservations are made through the Carrentals site, with clear tracking and reporting of booking figures and commission levels.
The affiliate programme will run on the Trade Doubler network and will be managed by award winning affiliate management agency, Arctic Sunrise.
Keith Budden of Arctic Sunrise adds: "Affiliate programmes offer businesses an extra element to their websites, but the key is to ensure they are easy to integrate and manage. The quality of the Carrentals.co.uk affiliate product, combined with the broad market that car hire attracts and the 5% commission structure has resulted in a very strong proposition, and this will grow further with the new Trade Doubler agreement."
