Travelstart nailed it again, as the company held its second affiliate forum on November 2nd, 2017 at the Ibis Hotel Ikeja with its formidable Affiliate members in attendance.
As we expected, the turn up was awesome, energy was positive and the response was quite incredible! Unlike the first forum which held on June 21st, 2017 that hosted more of the travel agents, this time around guests include bloggers, website owners and very few travel agents.
What is Travelstart Affiliate Programme
Travelstart’s Affiliate programme offers lifestyle bloggers, established travel agencies and aspiring (travel) website owners the opportunity to sell flight tickets in partnership with Travelstart. The programme allows Travelstary partners to be creative and focus on getting customers to purchase flight tickets directly from their own website while the affiliate builds their business and strengthens their brand through the affiliation with Travelstart.
Becoming an affiliate with Travelstart provides website owners with an opportunity to be their own boss and make more money for their businesses!
This initiated the Affiliate forum which was introduced as part of our marketing initiatives to build a strong relationship with our affiliates while enlightening them on how to make the best out of their affiliation with travelstart through relevant topics shared that could help them make more sales on flight booking.

Exactly at 10 am, our guest started arriving and the few selected Travelstart staff at the venue received them wholeheartedly while ushering them to the registration stand before assigning them to their respective seat.
