Customize the search availability form

You can customize the Search Availability Form fields, for example, add or remove search filters.

Customize default fields

If you want to enable guests to designate the number of people in the search form, you can tailor these fields via Accommodation > Settings > Search options > Guest management > choose your preferences.

  • Enable “adults” and “children” options for my website (default). – Choose this option if you want to allow guests to select both the number of adults and children.
  • Disable “children” option for my website (hide “children” field and use Guests label instead). – Choose this option if you don’t want to differentiate adults and children and wish to use one common field for the number of people instead.
  • guests booking form

  • Disable “adults” and “children” options for my website. – Enable this field if you want to leave only the arrival and departure fields.
  • Hide “adults” and “children” fields within search availability forms. – This option allows you to hide the “adults” and “children” fields even if you set them for accommodations.

If you want to publicly display the age of children in the “Children” field, set this information in the Age of Child field in the same menu.
