Insider Tips Widgets

Our Insider Tips widgets are designed to provide a user with helpful statistical information about fligths.

The Insider Tips are generated from the prices Skyscanner has found for specific flight routes based on users clicking through to booking sites from our search results.

NB: For best presentation on your landing page, ensure that the widget is in a container with a width of at least about 250px (exact minimum width may be slightly different depending on a tip type), otherwise you may experience styling issues.
Insider Tips widget's height is usually calculated automatically depending on
a tip type and the current width.
