Banner ad formats

  • vertical: Skyscraper format (width 140 px, height 600 px),
    placed at the top right of the selected page(s). (Example)
    This ad format and position is highly visible on screens of desktop PCs and tablets, while on mobile devices it may not be visible without horizontal scrolling. Hence, this ad format is better suited if you want to approach readers while making travel preparations.
  • horizontal: Leaderboard format (width 728 px, height 170 px),
    placed at the top of the selected page(s). (Example)
    This ad banner stays visible at the top of the browser when readers are scrolling down the page. Thus, this ad format is well suited if you target mobile users, especially travellers or locals looking up information before or while going out.
  • We accept animated banners if the animation is slow and user-friendly (with intervals of at least 5 seconds).
