Superior Economics

EAN writes the biggest checks in the travel business for our partners. Instead of focusing on intermediate metrics, we maximize Total Partner Return: getting more of your site’s visitors to book higher-margin hotels for longer stays, while keeping support costs and cancellations to a minimum. We also take bookings by phone, earning revenue from the people who don’t want to book online (as many as 20% in some markets).

  • Quality inventory means higher booking value
  • Pre-pay translates to fewer cancellations
  • Offline sales in addition to online sales support
  • $150+ million paid in commission checks in 2011 alone
