What is the Inspiring Search Box?
The Inspiring Search Box is designed to inspire your readers to travel and book.
It is one level down the funnel, so you can show it to visitors that know what country they want to visit and let it inspire them find accommodation there.
Once they do a search and get to a city search result page on Booking.com, they can browse and book their accommodation in that destination.
How does the Inspiring Search Box differ from the regular Search Box?
Where the regular search box does not show images, the Inspiring Search Box shows images of the top three destinations in the country you chose upon building it in the Partner Center. Depending on the search box size, it will also show a list of up to 10 other cities in that country.

Where to put the Inspiring Search Box
The Inspiring Search Box can be quite wide, so it’s best suited on pages with a width of at least 500 pixels.
It’s best placed in the middle of the page, so your readers can’t miss it.
Can I create multiple Inspiring Search Boxes?
Yes, you can create an Inspiring Search Box for for instance every country featured on your site.
To efficiently track the effectiveness of the search boxes, each one is listed separately under the ‘Product Performance’ tab.
How big can the Inspiring Search Box be?
