Rate:  $250 for 12 months (+ 2 months free for all first-time sign ups)

Standard Promotion:

Drive more direct bookings and help families at the same time! Our commission rate is only 5%. However, you also need to offer something special for families.

This might be an extra 5% discount, a voucher for a local family friendly eatery or tourist attraction, or offering for free something you might usually charge for (eg, WIFI, cots, etc). The choice is yours.

We do not handle bookings or take money on your behalf, so a booking/promo code will be required to keep track of bookings for the family incentive and commission purposes.

As another bonus for you, once you reach $250 worth of commission, we will upgrade you to Featured Property status for the following 12 months.

Rate: 5% commission plus booking incentive (of your choice) for families.

Affiliate Promotion:

If your property is listed on or websites, we can promote your property on the relevant tourist region page, with a link to your property on either the, or websites. This way, we will receive a small commission if a booking is made by a guest after they link through from our website.

Rate: No additional costs for you apart from commissions you pay to these booking websites. Note: We offer no promotional opportunities for this type of listing.
