As a Northbound Partner, what do I do?

Keep doing what you do best, of course. If you are a guest house owner then you can simply use your referral links to direct your customers to Northbound and reap additional profits when they place a booking.

Popular uses for the referral link include:

  • A search box on your website, blog or facebook page.
  • Placing the link in your welcome e-mail to customers.
  • Answering requests for rental cars, day tours or information on various subjects, by linking to a specific site on Northbound with your referral extension added at the end.

If you need any assistance with any of the above, we're always ready to assist. Try to the live chat or our e-mail [email protected]


How much do I earn when my customer makes a booking?

We pay out 30% of our commission to our partners with an average commission value of 17,000 ISK. As you reach certain milestones, your commission may then be raised up to 40%.


When do I receive my earnings?

The profit share for the rental amount of the booking will be paid to The Affiliate's bank or PayPal account once the rentals have been completed (i.e. the rental period has passed and the rental car has been returned to the rental company or the tour is successfully completed) once the overall amount exceeds £50.00, €75.00 or $100. These are paid at the end of the following month. The Affiliate must provide accurate bank or PayPal details before any integration is activated.
