Welcome-to-Russia: Online Travel Web Launches Aggressive New Affiliate Program

With relations between Russia and the West on the mend, the former Soviet Union has seen a surge in both business and holiday travelers.
April 7, 2010 - PRLog -- With relations between Russia and the West on the mend, the former Soviet Union has seen a surge in both business and holiday travelers. Indeed, the travel sector throughout the former USSR has seen an upswing in business as well as tourism resulting in a shortage of hotel rooms in major cities. This compromise in the number of available rooms is compounded by lofty rates found across the board at most chain and individual hotels.

In Russia it’s said ‘Nature abhors a vacuum’.  So in 2002 Welcome-to-Russia.com was formed to offer travelers to CIS an online alternative to the sky high rack rates of hotel stays, universally considered usurious and among the highest in the world. Apartments, or flats, have been the exclusive mainstay of Welcome-to-Russia which has since assembled the largest inventory of short term rental flats across Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova and Latvia, typically priced at a fraction of the cost of a hotel.

With over 700 units in 26 cities, WTR has built a stellar reputation as a value alternative to not only businesses and tourism, but has also carved out a niche in low cost tourism and particularly international dating which has taken off in CIS following the fall of the Wall.
Now, Welcome-to-Russia has launched ResPartner.net, a proprietary, turn-key affiliate program designed to easily create traffic from websites and the blogosphere. Providing full, individualized marketing assistance and special terms for high performing affiliates, ResPartner has generated serious buzz by offering among the highest flat rate commission structures in the entire Russian travel sector, paying affiliates up to $70 USD for each referral resulting in a sale. The streamlined 1st tier affiliate program features a quick payment turnaround supported by a series of proven sales banners and live help desk.

“The program was designed to capitalize on WTR’s dominant market share, and cut through the billing chaff to provide transparency for a more straightforward partnership.” says Tom Holman, spokesperson for ResPartner and WTR. “The response has been tremendous in the first few days after launch, especially considering we haven’t advertised the program but on site…” quips Holman.

In addition to a broad range of flats in major East European cities, WTR provides visa support, professional translation services, and on-time airport transfers for the thousands of predominantly U.S., Canadian and Western Europeans who are regular customers.
