To insert any of the Skyscanner Widgets on your site, follow these steps:
Make sure you have landed on this page by being redirected from your usual affiliate network (CJ, TradeDoubler, Awin and more). Otherwise, your tracking parameters won't be added to the widget and we won't be able to attribute the payments to you.
Select the Skyscanner Widget of your preference using the side panel on the left. There are many of them, make sure you find the right one for you!
That is all! You can copy and paste the code on your website to display the widget. Also, if you have advanced skills, you can edit some of the multiple parameters available in order to personalize the widget at your taste.
There is more advanced specific documentation: Guide to our Travel Widgets.
Contact your regular affiliate network if you find any other issue related to the widget, commissions or tracking.
FAQs - General
Q: Can I choose the domain the Affiliate Widget sends a user to?
A: Yes. If you want the locale settings as en-GB but redirect the user to the Australian Skyscanner site, simply change the market code in the Market parameter. A list of these codes can be seen here (note: not all domains are available on Skyscanner.)
Q: When do I get paid?
A: Check your affiliate network dashboard for information on payments using the Skyscanner Affiliate Search Widget.
Q: How can I submit feedback/comments about this widget?
A: We appreciate any comments, requests or feedback for the widget. Please submit feedback through our Zendesk portal.
FAQs - Customisation
Q: The locale settings I need aren't available, what should I do?
A: Unfortunately, we currently support only the locale settings listed. We are working hard to add support for more locales soon.
Q: Can I install this on my Wordpress website?
A: Yes – This widget can work on a Wordpress site, but you need to enable your Wordpress site to allow scripts to be embedded. You can use a code embed widget such as https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/simple-embed-code/.
IMPORTANT: Please note that adding any new widget to your Wordpress site can cause issues with its layout and functionality, so do so at your own risk.
Q: The Widget looks strange on my website. How do I fix that?
A: Ensure the enclosing div element is at least 250px wide. We have built the Affiliate Search Widget to be responsive and to work on mobile devices, but for some very narrow page layouts, this may make the widget look strange.
It may also be that the custom CSS code on your website that overrides the styling of the Widget. In such case, you will need to investigate updating your website CSS to accommodate the Widget.
Q: Can I set a fixed height and width for the widget?
A: You can change the widget width, but take into account that it requires some CSS knowledge. You can restrict the widget width within a <div> element.
The following example sets the width of the div containing the widget to 250px:
