Why Rank & Rent is the Smart Choice for Travel Agents

As a travel agent, your expertise lies in crafting unforgettable holidays, not wrestling with website design or search engine algorithms.

As a former travel agent (more on that later), I know what you have to go through on a normal day. Your life isn't easy, and as we all know there is more to do in a day than there are hours in the day.

  • Limited time and resources: Building a successful holiday or travel website from scratch is time-consuming and can be costly.
  • SEO is a beast: Understanding the ever-changing world of search engine optimisation is a full-time job in itself.
  • Fierce competition: The online travel space is crowded - breaking through the noise is tough for smaller agencies.

The Rank & Rent Solution

Here's why you should consider choosing the smart solution to growing your travel business online with a travel website from Smartview Marketing.

Instant Visibility: Think of our travel websites like prime real estate on the first page of Google search results. You don't have to build your way there – you're already in the best location to be seen by potential customers.

Effortless Lead Generation: Our travel websites are designed to turn visitors into excited travellers ready to contact you. You focus on booking incredible trips, while the travel website handles finding the clients for you.

Level the playing field: Even smaller travel agencies can compete with the big online names when you rank high in search results. You don't need a huge marketing budget to get noticed.

The Bottom Line: Rank & Rent saves you time, money, and the headache of trying to figure out online marketing. This lets you focus on what you love – sharing your passion for travel with clients.

The Power of Organic Search for Travel

Be Where Your Customers Are Searching!

Today's travellers start their journey online. They research destinations, compare prices, and read reviews before they ever pick up the phone or walk into a travel agency.

I always knew that the key to growing a travel agency was being found on Google and Bing, but back then I didn't have the time to do anything about it, probably just like you.

You fight on Facebook and Social Media with an ever growing army of homeworkers, independent agencies, MLMs and the 'big boys' in our sector, and being able to cut through the noise and reach potential customers, isn't an easy job, but it could be if you make the smart choice and rent space on page 1 of Google on a ranking travel website.

Consider This: 


Over 90% of search traffic clicks go to first-page organic listings, with the top 5 results on page 1 alone receiving over 70% of clicks.


The first organic result has an average click-through rate of around 30%, with CTR dropping dramatically with lower positions (position 10 has a CTR of under 1%).


70-80% of searchers ignore paid ads, focusing on organic results instead. This high percentage demonstrates the power of organic search rankings in capturing the attention and trust of potential customers.

Over 90% of search traffic goes to the first page of Google - FACT
Top organic results have significantly higher click-through rates than lower positions - FACT
Users trust websites that rank organically more than paid advertisements - FACT

Visibility is Key: If your travel agency isn't on the first page of Google, potential clients might never find you.

Build Trust: Appearing high in organic results shows potential customers that you're an established and reputable source of travel information.

Capture Intent: People searching for travel-related terms are already interested in booking a trip. Being highly visible puts you in the perfect position to convert them into clients.

The Bottom Line: Organic search isn't just about getting website clicks, it's about connecting with motivated travellers ready to book their dream holiday.
