Host Agency Solution

This is a first-of-its kind solution designed especially for host agencies, helping them tap into their agent network to drive higher revenue, enhance agent loyalty and streamline their operations through the use of cutting-edge travel technology systems.

For Host Agencies working with thousands of sub-agents/affiliates spread across a region, managing their inventory distribution across such a large network and optimizing revenue from affiliates poses a huge challenge

Let us ask you some quick questions

  • Do you have inventory contracts from multiple suppliers and find it challenging to consolidate them?
  • Do you have trouble working out exactly much you need to receive from suppliers and how much you need to pay your affiliates every month, quarter or a year?
  • Are you worried that your affiliates are not generating enough booking revenue?
  • Are your affiliates asking for their own co-branded portals?
  • Do you want to increase loyalty among your affiliates?

If the answer to the above questions is yes, we have a great solution for you.

Introducing Symbion

Host Agency

Symbion is the ultimate distribution and affiliate management solution for Host agencies, providing hosts a powerful technology platform to maximize inventory distribution and boost revenue through their affiliate network.

How it works

Host Agency Workflow

Let’s see how much revenue a host agency can make through this model. Let’s assume you have 5000 affiliates working with you. Let’s also assume we charge each affiliate a minimum of say, $100/month for the benefits we provide, and offer you $30/month out of that

  • If 1000 of these affiliates sign up, you would earn a monthly revenue of $30 x 1000, or $30,000
  • If 2000 of these affiliates sign up, you would earn a monthly revenue of $60,000
  • If 4000 of these affiliates sign up, you would earn a monthly revenue of $120,000
  • If all 5000 affiliates sign up, you would earn monthly revenue of $150,000, or $1.8 million annually!

So the more affiliates sign up, the more revenue your host agency can earn!
