How can YTB Help?
YTB Provides a “Private Label” booking engine for the non-profit to use and market to their members and supporters. As members book their travel using the website it creates a consistent stream of commissions paid by third party vendors. A significant portion of these funds are paid to the association as royalties. The booking engine uses the same technology and provides the same features and prices as other online booking engines such as Expedia ®, Orbitz® and Travelocity®.

A Simple Shift
With 85% of travel booked online you are not asking members to do anything they are uncomfortable doing or they are not already doing. You are only asking them to shift their activity. Simply stated, all you are saying to your members or supporters is this: “We know you are going to book travel online. All we are asking is that you book your travel with us. You’ll receive competitive rates or better and you’ll be helping a cause you believe in.” Even a relatively low participation rate by membership can produce significant funds
