How do I create Affiliate Links?

Of all the tools available, affiliate links (also known as tracking links) are the bread and butter of any affiliate business. Our partners love links in the Expedia Group Affiliate Program because they are easy to create and flexible to use on different platforms, including websites, blogs, social media and apps.
