I was never much into the travel sector, but recently one of my sites "pulled" and is getting, ok not much, but respectable 200-300 uniques a day.
It is devoted to a South East Asian country tourism (it was a nice expired name) and has visitors coming mostly from Australia, SE Asia and the U.S..
Of course the Adsense is on every page and it gets up to 40 clicks a day, but the EPC is the lowest possible.

Could anyone recommend a good program for this?
Please feel free to send a sticky if you have too specific info.
Thanks in advance.

How about some hotel bookings, airline ticket bookings affiliate programs and any other affiliate program you can find about the country/region in general that would fit nicely with the pages on your site. Don't think you'll make any more on a CPM banner basis than what you would make on Adsense or travel affiliate programs.

Thanks eljefe3. Yes that is the logical answer, but what would be the best program in that sector? Who provides the most for the area? IAN, Expedia, Travelocity...?
Any experiences or do you travel guys think that Adsense still brings the most?

Test, test and test. Your switching back and forth between adsense and the aff programs will give you the answer for your particular site. Perhaps running both in conjunction would also work.

Hi,

Expedia affiliate is run through linkshare, in their travel section and orbitz, hotwire and cheap tickets are run through linkshare.

Asian travel affilaitiates are few and far between. Tradedoubler do service the uk market quite well also.
