Tips to Creating a Successful Travel & Leisure Website

Last Update: March 31, 2019

Travel & Leisure as a niche is a wonderful choice when starting out to build a website.
It can be narrowed down to say continents, countries, or even regions.
Many great websites are even more specific to cover fields like hotel bookings, safaris listings, beaches to visit, flights to book, accessories needed by travelers, while other share personal stories and experiences.

The Travel & Leisure niche is an exciting and interesting one that can generate income, get you faithful followers and visitors in the long run; provided the following ideas are put into consideration:

  1. Maps – This helps visitors know the exact location of where you want them to go.
  2. Good photos and images – These help drive more visitors to your site and also help promote social sharing.
  3. An introduction of the area, its history and places similar to it or even near it.
  4. Travel information like public transport information – This helps in the budgeting phase.
  5. Air travel or airport information – Not only helps in the budgeting phase, but provides information on accessibility of the travel destination.
  6. Accommodation recommendations – Provide information to hotels, lodges and campsites
  7. Recreation and outdoors activity information – This benefits more those interested in team building activities
  8. Guides to places of attraction like galleries, theaters, museums, game sanctuaries and other attractions
  9. Tips on accessories needed to travel – A good checklist helps travelers carry the necessary gear to make the vacation a successful one.
  10. Tips on the culture, language and local dialect of the travel destination.

They may not all be applied, but depending on your type of website you are running, a combination of these ideas is recommended.

I wish you the best with your Travel & Leisure website.

Ahimbe,

Thanks for the pointers. My first niche with WA when I first started out with them four years ago was very much a travel oriented niche, but sadly I couldn't find time to continue it further. I was already in the middle of the training, but my job at the time got the best of me. So thanks and I am bookmarking your post just in case I need to go back and revive my first niche. Thanks, again and Good Bless.

Hey, that gives me an idea for my next niche. I live in Colorado, a great tourist destination year round. So I might do a travel site for just my little town here. It could work! Thanks for the suggestion. RhondaLeigh

Well written Edgar. A thing to remember is this is a time sensitive, seasonal, enterprise to be aware of. Location and season rule here!

Great idea ! But can you give me an example of what you “sell” to get a commission?

Linsay, you can join affiliate programs like bookings.com, travelpayouts.com, expedia.com and more. You will earn if a booking is made through your website.

If you consider items to travel with, like a camera, binoculars, jackets, laptop; you can point them to your affiliate links with amazon, ebay, alibaba, jumia and more to earn.
