The Travelfish one-page media kit

We’re going to keep this very simple, as we don’t want to waste your time.

If you want to run an ad on Travelfish, it is very, very simple.

What we offer

Your ad will be the only direct ad running on that page. Note that we may still run other affiliate positions (for example, Agoda or Booking.com) on the same page.
Your ad will run on one page. This could be the main country page, a location page, or a summary or detailed profile page. We will suggest what we think would be the best fit for your business.
The link will be a straight click-through. It won’t go through any tracking at our end. None. The link will be marked “nofollow” though.
Your ad will be marked as a “Sponsored placement”.

Why you should want to advertise with Travelfish

We are the largest independent travel website dedicated solely to Southeast Asia. Whether our readers are going to Hanoi, Penang or Nakhon Nowhere, if they are reading about the destination on our site, they will see your ad. It is that simple.

What we’ll deliver

People headed to your destination. If people are reading about the destination on Travelfish, they will see your ad. Period.

What you will offer us

You’ll be a business involved in the destination for which you want to advertise.
You’ll be a business we’d consider using ourselves.
You’ll commit to a minimum contract period of 6 months.
You’ll deliver decent artwork (see below).
You’ll be willing to pay upfront (discounts available for annual contracts).

What it will cost

A$100 per month, per page, with a minimum period of six months, or A$1,000 for 12 months.
Payment is 100% upfront, via Stripe (most credit cards accepted).
No PayPal, no bank transfers, no cheques and no lunch bags full of money.

If you are a small business, for example a small cooking school, or a small guesthouse, or a small restaurant, we offer a 50% discount off these rates, so $50 per month. Note our emphasis on small.

Ad format

A single, non-animated, 600 pixel wide by 300 pixel tall jpg. Maximum file size 75kb. No exceptions.

Here is an example:

sample position

We reserve the right to reject advertising we don’t like. Once approved, you can’t change it. We host the ad.

What we don’t offer

Tracking: None.
Reporting: None.
SEO benefit: None. All ads and related links are marked as “nofollow” and will open in a new window.

Can we do sponsored content instead?

No. We hate that stuff even more than TripAdvisor.

Can we work together some other way?

No.

Will placing an ad help to get your business listed?

No, no and no.

Let’s do it!

Great! Please contact Stuart at stuartmcdonald@travelfish.org to sort out a deal. Save both your time and his by mentioning in the email:
1) Which destination you want to advertise on, such as for instance Mae Sot, Siem Reap or Hanoi.
2) Your business and why it will be of interest to our readers. Please keep it brief. A URL is useful (if you have one) so he can read a bit more about your business.
3) Outline your artwork idea or feel free to attach some samples of what you have in mind.
4) Let him know when you would like to start your campaign.

He’ll be in touch shortly afterwards.

Thanks for reading this far - lucky it isn’t a two-page media kit!
