Frequently Asked Questions
My goal is to increase sales and reduce distribution costs.  Can we link travelers to our website for bookings?

It's no different than other media buys.  We can provide click through rates and help you with conversions, provided there is a unique booking code associated with your offer.  How do you measure your other online media buys today?
