How do I use Travel Widgets?
Adding a Travel Widget to your site takes just two lines of HTML.
The first line defines the type of Travel Widget and necessary customization parameters. The second loads our script, which takes your Travel Widget options and turns it into a full widget in the user's browser.
You can find the available parameters for each widget by selecting the Travel Widget from the above list.
Additionally, our Travel Widgets share common settings. There's a common rule of adding parameters to our Travel Widgets.
Any setting can be added:
as an independent HTML data attribute ( e.g. data-widget-specific-setting="CustomValue" )
or as one of parameters of the data-params attribute
( e.g. data-params="widgetSpecificSetting:CustomValue;otherParam:true" ).
In this example data-widget-specific-setting and widgetSpecificSetting are analogous.
The general rule is that any HTML data attribute's name is taken without the "data-" prefix, then it is converted from a kebab-case into camelCase, and added to data-params.
We support two ways of embedding widgets into your website: with or without an iframe. Although we fully support both ways, we highly recommend using the iframe option for a number of reasons. The main advantage is that it protects the widget styling from being overridden, or any other unexpected behavior caused by conflicts between the widget and your website.
Note: Although the iframe option fixes most issues, the following behavior is expected and should be considered when placing the widget on your website, for both options. On mobile, the date input for search widgets displays full screen by using CSS position: fixed. This breaks when any of the widget’s ancestors contain specific CSS properties, which you can read more about here. A common scenario is when using animation classes.

To set the Travel Widget's location, we provide support for a number of location attributes. In the example above the location is resolved from a simple name, but we support all of the following methods of getting a location:
Airport IATA code
Latitude & Longitude
Geolocation IP Lookup
See below for examples of how to use each of these methods of getting a location.
This option is set using the "data-(origin|destination)-name" attribute on your Travel Widget.
See above for example using location name from meta tags.
This option is set using the "data-(origin|destination)-iata-code" attribute on your widget.
It may be more useful to you if your site already contains information about airports, and you'd like to use that to generate widgets to specific airports – or when you want a widget to a single airport in a city instead of a search for all airports in that city.
Latitude and Longitude
This option is set using the "data-(origin|destination)-coords" attribute on your Travel Widget.
It will find the nearest airport to the given coordinates, which should be provided in the format "<latitude>,<longitude>" as a string.
Looking up locations and airports by coordinates in this way might be particularly useful for events and places where you don't have a real "location" name but do have coordinates. If you're using Google's static maps or adding maps dynamically, you might already have these coordinates in your page somewhere, or can easily add them.
Geolocation IP Lookup
This option is set using the "data-(origin|destination)-geo-lookup" attribute on your Travel Widget.
It will find the nearest location to the user by performing a geolocation lookup using the users IP address.
