Travel Accessories Programs

Are you interested in tapping into a multi-billion dollar market? Then you should consider selling travel accessories, one of the largest travel niches in the US (or any where else in the world for that matter)!

The Travel Goods Association (TGA) estimates that U.S. consumers spent more than $22 billion in 2007 purchasing travel related goods and accessories such as electronics, adapter plugs / converters / chargers and batteries, luggage, backpacks, travel and sports bags, business cases/computer bags, personal leather goods, travel clothing and toiletries, inflight comfort products, and travel gadgets, amongst other products.

There are a number of purveyors of travel accessories and goods, some focusing on a specific product category or two, while others offer virtually every imaginable travel accessory under the sun.

The following represents a short-list of some online travel accessories suppliers that offer a Travel Affiliate Program:

  • Magellan's

  • Orvis

    Boasting the longest-running mail order business in the United States, and still operating its original retail store located in the same Vermont village the founder opened in 1856, besides offering their world famous fly-fishing gear, Orvis also proffers a wide array of distinctive travel apparel, accessories and related products.   One of the aspects of this venerable that we especially like is their commitment to the natural environment; toward that end Orvis donates 5% of their pre-tax profits annually to conservation efforts throughout the U.S.

There are other Travel Accessory websites besides those we show above.  However, many of these players do not offer a Travel Affiliate Program, or in certain circumstances, offered a program in the past (e.g., TravelSmith, who we hope returns back into the Performance Marketing fold soon).   We continually monitor this travel niche and update our list constantly, so check back with us frequently to see 'what's new'.

If you are a travel accessories / goods supplier and would like to be added to our list, please contact us.
