  • An adult lifestyle company

How does the affiliate programme work?

You simply sign up online and once you are registered, you will have access to the information you need to get started. You will be issued with a unique code that will be used to track any sales that are made using it.

Do you charge to be an affiliate?

No, the Temptation Holidays affiliate programme is free to join.

What are my responsibilities as an affiliate?

You are responsible for installing and updating the affiliate tools that are available online on the affiliate programme website. You are also responsible for any marketing activity. We handle the reservations, billing and customer service.

Can I become an affiliate if I live outside the UK and Europe?

Yes, you can! Our affiliate programme is open to affiliate partners worldwide. Please note commission payments made will be in GBP.

How does the affiliate programme track sales online?

We use cookies to track leads and sales using your unique affiliate code, so whenever your code is used we can identify affiliate generated sales. We do not collect any other information for any other purpose with these cookies. When a sale is made using your affiliate code, we can identify who the affiliate is and can determine the total amount of commission to be paid to the affiliate.

How does the affiliate programme know which affiliate to credit for which sale?

Each unique link / code represents an affiliate and this redirects to the Temptation Holidays website, so we can match each sale with the affiliate responsible from their ID link / code.

What if customers don’t have cookies turned on in their browser?

Our research indicates that nearly 99% of internet users have the cookies function enabled on their browser. Cookies are integral part of the web, and aid in the creation of e-commerce websites, user-friendly websites, and other customized sites. In the uncommon event that a customer has cookies disabled on their browser, the customer is not available for tracking and therefore sales will not be tracked.

When cookies are used, what information is available?

We do not profile customers, aggregate data for analysis on customer preferences or store any customer data. We use cookies for the sole purpose of providing an affiliate management solution and only generic information about a customer is used.

How long do you track the cookies?

We track cookies for a period of one year. This allows for a long-term opportunity to win business from a customer when they have been referred by you, whether they book immediately or within 12 months.

Do I need to have computer or technical skills to be an affiliate?

You don’t need to be, but it may help as you would need to access our affiliate tools online and may need help to cut and paste content including affiliate codes on a website / newsletter / social media.



Payments & Commissions

How does the commission structure work?

Our basic rate starts at 5% commission from the hotel room rate or cruise cabin price. Other services such as flights and transfers are not included in commission. Commission payments are only paid on sales that result in an effective stay.

What is an "effective stay"?

An “effective stay” means any booking that results in a stay. For example, the guest/s have checked in and have checked out. The hotels and cruises inform us with confirmations of this. If a customer cancels their reservations or does not visit the hotel or board the cruise on the day of their intended stay, Temptation Holidays will not award any commission on this booking.

How will I know if, and when my sales are supposed to conclude?

By logging into www.affiliates.temptationholidays.com, you can view your reports which includes the date of every reservation made using your affiliate code and when the stay is due to be completed. If you need help locating where this, please contact us.

When will I get paid?

You will be paid commission after we have had confirmation from the hotel or cruise that the guest has completed their stay at the resort or cruise. Payments are made at the end of each calendar month via bank transfers. Please note there may be slight delays for payments if the stay is towards the end of the month as we need to allow time to check with each of the resorts or cruises that the customer has completed their stay, IE. have checked in and checked out.

How and when will I be paid for my generated sales?

We issue payments at the end of each calendar month via bank transfer. The exception to the above is when a stay falls at the end of the month. We would require time to check whether the stay was an effective stay (guest has checked in and checked out). In this case, you will be paid in the following month.

Do I need to send an invoice to receive my commission payment?

Yes. You are required to provide an invoice at the end of each calendar month, to receive payment. This can be sent to affiliates@temptationholidays.com



Promotion & Marketing

How do I get the promotional assets and links?

Once your application to the affiliate programme is accepted and approved, you will have access to the affiliate tools which contains an automatic generator with banners, text links and booking engines.

Can I use the images and content from your website?

You can use all the available content, images, banner and links provided in the affiliate programme website. If you would like to make changes, please notify us of any proposed changes by emailing affiliates@temptationholidays.com

Use of any other content is strictly prohibited unless you have prior written approval.

If there is something specific you would like to use that is not available in the affiliate tools, please send us a request on affiliates@temptationholidays.com

What kind of products can I promote on my website?

At present, the affiliates programme features the Temptation and Desire branded products. This will be expanded in due course.

Do you allow trademark bidding?

Temptation Holidays is trademarked and therefore bidding on like or similar properties is forbidden and may result in legal action.

It is forbidden to bid on the trademark Desire Resorts, Desire Cancun, Desire Pearl and Temptation Cancun or similar / misspelling terms.

Buying domains including the brand names of Temptation Holidays or its featured holidays are not allowed. Affiliates that do not comply with the above will be immediately rejected from the affiliate programme.

How should I promote my affiliate code?

There are numerous ways that you can promote your affiliate code, these include PR, sending the code to your mailing list and sharing on social media.
