Our Property Referral Programme explained
Our Property Referral Programme lets you refer friends to list their property on our platform – and save money on your own commissions as a reward. What’s more, your friends get to save on their commission, too.
The Property Referral Programme is only available in the United States, Australia, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, United Kingdom and for select partners.
Understanding the Property Referral Programme
When you refer a friend to list their property on our platform, both you and that friend are eligible to receive 5 commission-free bookings, up to a maximum value of €200.
You'll be rewarded for the first 10 friends that list their property and receive a booking. This means you can receive a total reward of up to €2,000 in commission-free bookings.
Keep in mind that depending on your region, the value of your reward may vary and/or be paid according to the equivalent amount in local currency.
- Log in to the extranet.
- Click on the Opportunities tab.
- Find the Commission-free bookings option in the dropdown menu. If the option doesn’t appear, it means you’re not eligible at this time. Please stay tuned as we roll out the option to more countries.
To get your unique referral link and share it with your friends, just follow these steps:
- Log in to the extranet
- Click on the Opportunities tab
- Select Commission-free bookings
- Copy the unique website link provided
- Send the link to friends or accommodation providers you know
Alternatively, you can share the referral link on social media platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn to reach a wider network. Just remember to mention the benefit for them: their first five bookings will be commission-free.
Your friends can then use your referral link to start their registration process and list their property on our platform. Your unique referral link is tracked by our system, so you can be sure that you and your friend will receive your rewards.
For you and your friend to be eligible, they need to complete their registration and make their property bookable within 30 days of starting the process.
Once your friend’s property is live and bookable, they have 90 days to receive their first booking – if this happens both you and your friend are eligible to receive 5 commission-free bookings.
Once you reach 5 commission-free bookings per referred property (max. 10 properties) or earn your maximum commission savings, you’ll no longer be eligible for programme rewards. However, you can continue to refer new friends, as they can still receive their commission-free bookings when they join.
You can refer friends with apartments, houses, B&Bs, campsites and more. On our platform, you can list any type of property for any length of time, whether it’s available year-round or just while the owner is on holiday.
You’ll receive and pay your monthly invoice as normal. Then, within one month we’ll issue separate credit notes to cover your commission savings, up to a maximum value of €200 (or equivalent amount based on region and/or currency) per referred property (max. 10 properties).
