What is the Kayak Ambassador Programme?

This programme is specially conceived such that you will have the impression it’s a game. The idea is to complete Challenges, and get reward points and earn badges in order to redeem actual rewards.

Challenges

The Challenges are your option, you can only choose those adapted for you, or all. Some of the challenges I’ve come across are:
  • filling in your ambassador profile
  • contributing to the forums and discussion between the Ambassadors
  • writing a themed blog post on your blog
  • creating a themed video
  • sharing Kayak Magazines on Twitter
  • give tips on a given destination
  • share a selfie or a panorama on your Ambassador profile

Some Challenges do not have reward points, but they will help you earn badges.

Reward points

With enough Reward Points you can redeem your rewards.

The rewards are specially made to help improve your blogging knowledge and techniques in this area. An ambassador with enough points can choose from any Social Media Platform webinars, participate in online trainings, or in person workshops across Europe.

Some rewards consists of free conferences or event tickets to help extend your network and express yourself in these events in order to gain experience and become a well-known influencer.

There are also some other traveling perks that include vouchers on airlines like Iberia or Vueling. Pretty neat, isn’t it?

Of course, Kayak wants to welcome you and reward you for your hard work. If you want to be surprised when you redeem your points, just opt for the Kayak Surprise Package.

Badges

The more Challenges you’ll complete, the more badges you’ll earn, hence unlocking even more challenges.

    1. One month or more now. I have already been able to contribute to the community and participate in webinars for growing IG.
      Other platforms will be presented soon.

  1. I think I used Kayak many years ago to track the arrival of a flight. Good to see the company encouraging travel writers and bloggers by offering relevant exposure and opportunities. Good luck.

    1. Thanks for your support, Mala!
      I actually use several services to compare flights, plan my travel, seek inspiration and so on. But only Kayak offered me the chance to grow with them.

    1. Hey, Jessica!
      Not exactly. Kayak proposes challenges on different subjects and once you’ve written a post you submit it and they will share it on their social media as a “testimonial”.
      I will re-reply once I’ve posted it myself so you can have a hint on how it looks like.

  3. Wow- I had no idea that a programme like this existed! This is great for travel bloggers ~ very comprehensive! I can see how it would help grow a travel entrepreneur’s “business.”
