"We only started working with Alpha a few months ago and have already seen some good results. The set up process was very simple and the communication has been very smooth and welcoming. We look forward to a great partnership!" - Dirk, Ultimate Oz

Why become an Alpha affiliate?

Why wouldn't you?! We're kidding...but seriously, as an Alpha Affiliate you're giving your customers/followers access to super affordable and trusted travel insurance, whilst forming a relationship with a fun yet professional brand that is truly unique in the travel insurance market.

Our range of insurance products includes: Single Trip, Multi Trip, Longstay/Backpacker and Wintersports. We're a little different to other providers in that the level of cover doesn't differ due to price; the only changeable aspect is the excess, which our customers have complete freedom over to choose! It is that straightforward and simple - we've even named the policies after the excesses they come with.

Our Affiliate programme includes:

How do I join?

If you’re uber keen to join us and our affiliate programme, have some questions, or would simply like more information…fill in the contact form above and we’ll get back to you!

How do I earn commission?

Once we’ve accepted your application to be an affiliate, we’ll give you your very own unique tracking ID, linking to our quote journey. You can pop this link on your site or blog/profile to refer customers over to us. Each sale generated from this link means some yummy commission coming your way.

All sales are based upon 30 day last click cookie activity. Commission will be paid on a monthly basis, based on the previous month’s referral activity.

Each month we’ll give you a breakdown of your referral activity and successful purchases. This on-going report is great to track your progress and work out ways to better it even more.

Can I become an affiliate if I, or my business, is located outside of the United Kingdom?

Yes of course! Our affiliates are located across the globe… our furthest is down under in Sydney, Australia. Just remember that our travel insurance products are currently only valid for customers who are residents within the United Kingdom, Isle of Man and Channel Islands, who are beginning and ending their trip within the United Kingdom.

How will I be paid? What about foreign exchange fees?

All commission is calculated on a monthly basis, 21 days after the end of the previous sales month. We pay your commission directly into your bank account via BACS transfer in sterling. Exchange rates will be calculated by your bank upon receipt. We can also pay via cheque if you prefer.

In countries where there are large fees for financial transfers (as there are with transfers to Australia for example), we can set commission payment thresholds for you. This can be set up to a sum which you specify, to avoid paying transfer fees each month, instead waiting until your commission hits your specified threshold to be paid in one lump sum – helpful right?

Your travel insurance offers a 14 day cooling off period, how will this affect my commission?

The 14 day cooling period is a legal requirement when selling insurance products within the UK. Any policies which are cancelled within the 14 day cooling off period will be removed from the system and ineligible for commission.

We do not experience a large number of cancellations however so this should have little impact on your affiliate campaigns. Since we pay our commission 21 days after the end of the sales month, you will not have to worry about any corrections in your commission payments, as all adjustments will have already been taken into account.

How do you assess an affiliate application? Are there certain things you look for?

We accept a variety of different types of people, business and website as we don’t look to pinpoint certain criteria within applications.

Although the majority of our affiliates are either tailored to the backpacking/gap year market, provide volunteering placements or offer a range of sporting and adventure activities, we are pretty open and welcome all applications.

Do you charge any fees to become an Alpha affiliate?

Joining our affiliate program is simple, easy and best of all, free. You can begin earning your commission as soon as you are given your unique tracking ID.

What happens if I want to withdraw from the affiliate program?

We would be very sad to see you go! Upon receiving your request to withdraw from our affiliate programme, you have a 30 day notice period and will be given a set end date. During this time, you can still direct traffic through your unique affiliate link in which your commission and final report will be allocated at the end of the month. Any sales made after the set end date will not be eligible for commission.
