For overnight stays, you can download the app takeabed and make a commission (just like a travel agent would) on your booking (it’s like a rebate!) or share your favorite hotels with friends and family and earn commission from their bookings . Like a travel agent, takeabed allows users to earn a 10% commission on a booking. There is no cost for the app, no quotas, and no minimum to meet. The takeabed PLUS option gives you easy-to-use access to exclusive deals, the best prices in the market (wholesale rates) and payment up to a 30% commission of your bookings. If you want to try it, you can use promo code: Agent10 to avoid having to enter credit card information for a free-trial! The best part of it is, you do not need a travel agent to download takeabed and earn commission, so take advantage of the money-saving offers – it’s free! 

The savings are sure to make enjoying your mini getaways and day trips in sunny Southern California that much easier!
