What are widgets?
Widgets are a quick and easy way of providing links to Skyscanner or your White Label for your users.
They can link straight to the front page of our site or your White Label, or send a user into a pre-filled search for a destination relevant to your content.
How do I use widgets?
Adding a widget to your site takes just two lines of HTML.
The first line defines the type of widget, the locale, the colour, and set the destination for a Location Widget. The second loads our script, which takes your widget options and turns it into a full widget in the user's browser.
See the examples below for the different types of widgets available:
You can customise your widgets with localisation and colour - see below for details on how to set these options.
Scripted location widgets
Widgets for White Labels
Of course! Our widgets have been designed to work with our White Labels from the start, and include features such as automatic styling to make your life easier.
To use a widget with your White Label you just need to provide one option: "whitelabeldomain".
This option tells our widgets to refer users to your White Label and allows it to be themed just like your White Label automatically. Because of this, you don't need to specify a colour option when using widgets with White Labels. If you do specify a colour it will override the White Label's theme - so this can still be used when you want to customise widgets further.
See below for examples of widgets redirecting to our White Label demo - simply replace the demo domain with your White Label's domain to use on your site! The widgets match their colour with the "primary button" colour of the White Label, in this case a dark blue.
