Area Descriptions are used to describe an area, i.e. a stop within an itinerary, where the customer can overnight and choose from a selection of optional activities.

Steps to create Area Descriptions

Please Note

In order to create an Area Description, the area, i.e. its location, must be created beforehand.

Please refer to the following article for more information: Areas

  • Go to Inventory
  • Click on Package Builder
  • Click on Area Description


  • If the Area is already created, click on Create Area Description and select your desired area from the drop-down menu.
    • Add a Key sentence (mandatory), and a short and long description (optional)


    • Upload a representative, high-quality picture of the area (we suggest at least 3)
      • In order to add pictures, they need to be upload first into the picture library. Please refer to the following article: Pictures


    • Add Highlights
      • In order to add highlights, they need to be created first. Please refer to the following article: Highlights


    • Add Translations


Please Note

The area description is still in draft mode and needs to be set to Published. Areas that are set to Draft do not appear in the drop-down menu when adding stops to an itinerary.


Area Actions & Publishing 


Remove Deletes the area description, which cannot be retrieved.
Translate  Opens the area descriptions on the tab Translations, which allows translating the content easily in the Cockpit.
Publish Will publish the product and set the status on Published.
Set to draft  Sets the published version back on status Draft and allows to alter the content. 


  • Unlike products, modules and templates, Area descriptions and Highlights do not have any revision numbers.
  • Setting these options to draft, results in them not appearing on the Frontend.
  • The published version will no longer be live until the draft is published again.
  • Equally, removing a draft will also result in the description being deleted.
