All-inclusive packages are a big hit with travel affiliates, especially during recessions; All Inclusive Outlet’s travel affiliate program makes it easy for travel affiliates to tap into this profitable travel niche.

Founded in 1998, All Inclusive Outlet is one of the oldest and most respected online travel agencies specializing in all-inclusive vacations.  Today, this OTA offers some of the best Caribbean and Mexican travel package deals available from any travel retailer.  In addition to reviewing value-laden and highly-discounted packages and rates from many of the leading resort chains like Sandals and Beaches Resorts, SuperClubs, and Karisma Hotels, leisure travelers can also find a wealth of information about how to research and plan the perfect all-inclusive vacation, as well as honeymoon and romantic packages on

Additionally, as most travel affiliates know all too well, the definition of a land-based all-inclusive vacation package can vary greatly based on the destination and resort / property.  Some resorts are truly ‘all inclusive’, and provide their guests with everything, from unlimited food, beverages, at- property activities, as well include all tips and gratuities, while others ‘cherry pick’ the features, and can bury costs in the package ‘fine print’.  All Inclusive Outlet’s ‘What to look for in an All Inclusive Resort’ resource page provides travelers with a clear understanding of these package nuances, as well as the inside skinny on how to determine which type of all-inclusive travel experience is best meets their needs based on a number of well thought-out criteria.

Having won numerous travel industry awards as top sellers in the Caribbean and Mexican travel markets, All Inclusive Outlet has also earned a well deserved reputation for outstanding customer service.  For example, as part of its standard offering, in addition to providing an online booking engine through which customers can access all of All Inclusive Outlet’s products and services 24 X 7, once the customer has booked their package online, an All Inclusive Outlet representative will personally follow-up with a telephone call to answer any questions that the customer may have and to help ensure their travel booking and eventual trip remain error-free.

This personalized approach to customer service is a strong selling point for travel affiliates who are looking to grow their business in the ‘fun and sun’ all-inclusive or hotel & resort travel niche, for as we know, maintaining a strong and positive relationship with your customer is a critical success factor in assuring any company’s long-term success; All Inclusive Outlet’s proactive approach to customer relationship management accomplishes that in spades.

The features and financial elements of All Inclusive Outlet’s travel affiliate program are quite attractive as well.  All Inclusive Outlet pays 4% on all hotel/resort/package bookings, minus any applicable taxes and fees.  With an average transaction sales price of $2,100, this represents a fairly sizeable affiliate commission payout.  Travel affiliates also enjoy the benefits of receiving a 45-day cookie duration and the Company keeps its travel affiliates well informed of special offers, promotions, and incentives that can help augment their sales and earnings potential.
