TravelKit, the Full-Fledged Travel and Tourism WordPress Theme
TravelKit is a premium responsive WordPress theme for the tourism sector. If you are in charge of a travel business or agency, TravelKit is the ultimate thing you need to launch a super-functional tour site. The theme is loaded with tons of industry-specific features that will make your site incredibly user-friendly and easily manageable.
TravelKit Top Features
TravelKit has a well-crafted collection of purpose oriented features and extensions to build an all-inclusive tourism site. It can host and show detailed tour packages along with every other relevant stuff. TravelKit has advanced facilities like searching and reserving hotels, booking flights, renting vehicles, hiring guides etc. A unified search box lets a visitor look for all information in one place. A third-party API integration brings real-time flight schedule and availability information directly on TravelKit.
TravelKit is built on the widely popular Bootstrap 3 front-end framework which makes it a fully responsive and mobile ready theme. A site developed with TravelKit will perfectly fit any screen size whether it’s a desktop, notebook or a mobile device. The theme comes with lots of customization options. Bootstrap’s grid based structure makes the total package flexible and natively compatible with all platforms.
5 Homepage Variations
TravelKit has 5 homepage variations offering a handful of options to launch a site with your desired design. Each of the pre-designed layouts has a well-planned element arrangement which can be further tweaked based on your unique needs.
Here are the screenshots of the variation 1 and 2.
All homepage variations contain an elegant top section. Variation number 1, 2, 3 and 5 have sliders on the top. Demo 1, 2 and 3 feature the unified tour package searching system immediately after the top slider.
Check the screenshots of the variation 3 and 5 below.
If you don’t want to offer the unified search feature on the frontpage (or probably at all), the 5th homepage variation is a ready to use option. This layout beautifully shows every other content (except the search box) related to your travel agency.
Again, all of the layout elements can be rearranged easily. You can add/remove an element using Visual Composer which is utilized to create the layouts.
Header and Top Bar Tweaks
The top menu bar is by default similar in all 5 TravelKit variations. But you can customize its look and feel using TravelKit Options from the WordPress customizer page. You can add an additional bar to the top of the menu bar. The whole header can be made transparent or solid as you wish.
There are many other tweaks for the header portion like making it sticky, adding social profile links to it and more.
Create Tour Packages
TravelKit has several custom post types to add information about hotels, vehicles, transport schedules and tour packages. You can offer detailed information like hotel descriptions, photographs, accommodation facilities, fares etc. If your travel agency offers transportation service, you can also list your available vehicles on your site. Customers can book and schedule vehicles per their requirements. Finally, you can combine all of your tourism related facilities and create packages so that customers can check and purchase them for simpler travelling experience.
Flight API Integration
TravelKit has a third-party API integration that brings real-time flight information and schedules directly on your tourism site. It also offers a flight booking system on your site. TravelKit will handle the payment and checkout related stuff seamlessly.
Unified Search System
One of the major attractions of TravelKit is its centralized search mechanism. The Themeum dev team has integrated the system with the theme which you can implement on any page using a Visual Composer shortcode. It lets a visitor search hotels, vehicles, flights and tour packages with numerous filters and conditions. This search system will make trips very easy.
TravelKit’s pre-built layouts show some beautiful examples of featured areas that will impress the visitors. These sections can display page elements like call-to-actions, tour package collections, top destinations, blog posts, photo galleries, email subscription box etc. There are lots of customization options in all of these featured areas so you can format texts, adjust padding-margin, customize backgrounds and so on using Visual Composer.
