Travel-Related Niches to Consider

When considering how you can best participate in the Travel Affiliate marketing industry, we strongly suggest you look at travel niches. In the following text boxes, we’ve categorized the major sectors of the travel industry and, where appropriate, drilled-down and identified a number of niches in each.

We think our list provides a good ‘jumping-off point’ for any affiliate interested in travel to begin their research and assess which niche (or niches) represents the best business opportunity for them. Remember…go small, and then go smaller.
