How can YTB Help?
YTB Provides a “Private Label” booking engine for the non-profit to use and market to their members and supporters. As members book their travel using the website it creates a consistent stream of commissions paid by third party vendors. A significant portion of these funds are paid to the association as royalties. The booking engine uses the same technology and provides the same features and prices as other online booking engines such as Expedia®, Orbitz® and Travelocity®.

A Simple Shift
With 85% of travel booked online you are not asking members to do anything they are uncomfortable doing or they are not already doing. You are only asking them to shift their activity.
Simply stated, all you are saying to your members or supporters is this:
“We know you are going to book travel on-line. All we are asking is that you book your travel with us. You’ll receive competitive rates or better and you’ll be helping a cause you believe in.”
Even a relatively low participation rate by membership can produce significant funds

How to Turn Your
Vacations Into Donations!
This year when you and your family start dreaming of far away places. Think for a minute about helping us spread the gospel around the world. The BMU has just launched a new travel service for Southern Baptists interested in promoting foreign missions.
It’s So Simple To Do
Go to wwwbmutravel.com. And book your travel just like using any of the other travel websites. You’ll get the same choices and the same low rates, but you’ll be helping a cause you believe in. Each time you book travel on our website, the Baptist Missions Commission will receive 40% of the travel commissions paid by the travel companies you use…with absolutely no cost to you. This could mean a tremendous increase in funding our foreign missions. So remember every time you book travel, think of us.
Each time you book your travel at www.bmutravel .com 40% of the travel commissions are donated to the Baptist Foreign Missions Commission
Produce a Financial Windfall
With the YTB program you receive a substantial share of the revenue from your travel website. 40% of all travel commissions from the website go directly to your organization as royalties. Below is an example of the income potential of an organization.
25,000 Total Membership of association
x 5% participation by members
= 1,250 Participating Members
x $1,700 average yearly usage per member
x 5% Average commission rate
= $ 106,250 in travel commissions
x 40% association percentage
= $ 42,500 in revenue for organization
