✔ Firefly is car hire made simple and above all offers excellent value.
✔ All you need for everyday and holiday rentals, a great range of vehicles and locations all over Europe.

The standard commission rates are as follows but affiliates may benefit from promotional or bespoke rates:
5% of booking value
Firefly pay commission on all valid car bookings.
VAT is included in the basket value and therefore commission.
Commission is paid on the full price including ancillaries (such as baby seats or insurance products).
Banners are available in gif/jpeg format as standard. Affiliates are asked to avoid hard-coding creative so that the network can update these automatically. Affiliates are obliged to update or remove content upon request.
Affiliates should only promote offers that have been communicated or approved by the network and all relevant terms should be made clear.
Firefly operates a 30 day recurring cookie.
Unfortunately the platform for mobile conversions does not currently enable affiliate tracking.
Firefly de-dupes across other marketing channels on a last click basis; currently across Affiliates, Paid Search and Display according to the standard cookie hierarchy.
Third party tracking and analytics are in place so this should also ensure everything stays intact.
Cross-tracking is in place, e.g. in case affiliates send customers to the UK website but they convert on another (n.b. affiliate activity relates to UK, FR, DE, IT, ES, NL only).
Commissions are validated on a 60 day cycle in order to remove cancellations or illegitimate bookings.
Please enquire with the network before promoting a specific product that is outside standard car and van hire.
The Paid Search policy applies to all affiliates unless explicit permission has been granted – please check with agency if you are unsure otherwise you risk declined commissions and removal from the programme.
