Join the Markel Affiliate Marketing Program Today

The Markel Affiliate Program is a unique opportunity for you to earn additional income while providing an added benefit to visitors on your website.

What is the Markel Affiliate Program? You place Markel banner ads or text links on your website, and earn money for each completed Markel bicycle, event or motorcycle insurance quote generated through your website. Earn money all while offering a valuable resource for your website visitors!

How It Works

First, fill out the application to become part of the Markel Affiliate program, and with approval from Markel, you can earn money by placing targeted Markel banner ads or text links (that Markel supplies) on your website. When a visitor from your site clicks on the Markel ad, and completes an insurance quote on markelinsuresfun.com, you’ll earn between $5 and $9 depending on the insurance product quoted.

It is that easy.

  • $5 per completed quote for bicycle insurance
  • $5 per completed quote for event insurance
