What does HIT international do?
HIT (Hosting Israeli Travelers) has been operating in New Zealand since the year 2000. While there are various hosting networks around, the unique aspect about HIT is that we offer FREE hosting in private homes for young Israeli travelers. Each year we used to publish a travel directory which was accompanied by a club membership card (with personal details and photo identification of the Israeli travelers) and listing hosts and discounted services for them.
Now, after 14 years we are expanding the HIT network internationally and to provide this service, will be using this website. As you can see, our website contains useful information for the Israeli travelers as well as information on hosts & service operators/businesses in many countries around the world. The fact that we’ll have a direct link to your website will enable the Israelis to learn about your service before they even leave Israel!
Normally, whenever people make bookings to your service through any booking agent, you will give these agents a 10% – 20% commission. We (HIT international) ask to act as a booking agent but instead of getting your commission, we ask you to give it as a discount to HIT members, provided they come to you on direct booking and present a valid HIT card!
Why advertise with HIT international?
- To ensure your business is exposed to thousand of young Israelis traveling out of Israel every year. These young Israelis are looking to participate in all the wonderful adventure/sightseeing facilities each country has to offer.
- We have a unique product, and because of the FREE accommodation we offer HIT members, you can be assured that your advertisement will be seen!
- By advertising with us, your business will become known, and be in the forefront of their mind when these travelers are in your region. Additionally, by offering a discount to HIT members, we are certain you will attract the interest of these Israeli travelers.
- Simply put – you have absolutely nothing to lose! As there are no costs involved in your advertisement with us, it would be silly not to take up this offer…
We ask that in return for your offer of the best discount possible for HIT members, we will place your business information and contact details here on our website for absolutely FREE! (*the free aspect may change in the future)
Notes for advertisers
- The Israelis must present a valid HIT card in order to obtain the discount you offer >>> “No HIT card – No discount!” Please note that in the near future you will be able to “log-into” our system and check if those contacting you are genuine HIT members.
- We advise that you state that your discount is available on “direct bookings only!” (This will enable you to give a better discount instead of paying commission to booking agents)
- In addition to the Israeli travelers using our network, HIT hosts & supporters may also be interested with your services.
- Children under 13 don’t have their own HIT card, but are included on their parents’ one.
