Drive more visitors to your airport/city/travel web site/blog with our new airfare widget

George Hobica, October 10, 2007
Fares from Washington DC:, as you may already know, is the only airfare listing/comparison site that includes low fares on all airlines, including low cost leaders Southwest, SkyBus, JetBlue, and Allegiant. The site only lists fares when and if they are unusually good bargains.

    Recently, we launched a new airfare widget that can be easily customized to show selected low fares either to or from any city. The javascript widget is a cinch to place on any web site or blog, and takes up little room. It’s ideal for convention and visitor bureaus, attractions, or even hotels that wish to show low fares to their city in order to entice visitors to come. It’s also great for airport web sites and newspapers or other local publications that wish to show low fares from their local airports. Blogs are another ideal placement. Planning a wedding in Honolulu? Place the widget on your wedding blog so prospective wedding guests can search for low fares to the wedding destination. The widget can also be designed to show fares, all in one place, from or to surrounding airports, or from/to just one airport.

    The widget scrolls continually to show fares. When a user wishes to learn more about the fare, further details are a click away.

    Colors can be customized. The widget uses simple javascript code and takes just a few minutes to implement. According to Allen Holder, the travel editor of the Kansas City Star, getting approval from management to incorporate the widget, and actually placing it on site, was “the easiest thing I’ve done all year.” The Columbus Dispatch is also using the widget on its travel site.
