Types of widgets

The article describes the types of widgets provided by travel brands represented in Travelpayouts. You can learn more About widgets and How to customize them in our help center.

Search form

Search forms help users quickly find the service directly on your website. All the user has to do is enter the necessary information into the widget.

For example, if you’ve integrated a search form for finding cheap flights via WayAway into your website. Users only need to specify the origin and destination city, depart and return dates, and number of passengers. When the travelers click the Search flights button, they’ll go to the brand’s site and will be able to purchase cheap tickets for the given destination. If the purchase is made, you’ll receive a partner reward.

Availability and Calendar Widget

An availability widget is an information widget that helps travelers choose the right brand offer from the available options at the best price. Usually, such widgets look like calendars.

For example, the GetYourGuide availability widget shows the availability of tickets on a specific date and highlights cheap dates.

Product and offer Widget

The product widget helps users compare several offers from various brands and choose the best option. For example, tickets to sights that they can buy on Tiqets. In the settings of this widget, partners can decide which offers to display.

Such widgets can be dynamic. This means that the content of the widget changes depending on changes in the brand’s offer.

The product widget can also display the set of services based on the custom settings that you can change. For example, if you want to show your readers tickets to concerts in specific countries.

Reviews Widget

The feedback widget can display reviews of travellers who used the transfer from this brand.

You can find such a widget in the KiwiTaxi partner program. Simply select the place of departure and arrival or the entire city.  Use this widget to rid your audience of doubts and encourage them to book the service.

Map Widget

This widget looks like an interactive map with special markers. 

For example in the Hotellook program widget, when a user clicks on the marker, a hotel card appears with a rating and average cost of living. This widget is native, increases user involvement, and helps them select and immediately book an accommodation.

White Label

This widget can function as any of the widgets described above. The main feature of the White Label Widget is that it allows you to display search results on a partner’s website (without going to the travel brand’s website).

Depending on the widget properties, the user can pay for the service on either the partner’s page or the travel brand's page.
