Why an FAQ Page is a Must-Have for a Well-Rounded Travel Website

When you visit a business’ homepage, you probably have an objective in mind. Perhaps you want to learn more about them, or sign up for a piece of content they offer. Or, maybe, you have questions that you want answered about that business.  

That’s where an FAQ, (Frequently Asked Questions) page comes in. An FAQ page serves as a one-stop destination for visitors to learn more about your business and the services it provides.  
Building a well-rounded FAQ page that covers the basics and anticipates the questions someone might have about your business is a great way to assert yourself and instill confidence in potential clients. 

Here’s what you need to know to create an effective FAQ page that tells your website visitors everything they need to know about your business. 

An FAQ Page Is Your Business Shorthand 

Your FAQ page is like the guidebook that accompanies visitors on their journey through your site. They have questions, and you have answers. And all of them are right there, ready at their fingertips. 

Imagine being someone looking to book a trip in your chosen niche. What are some things you would want clarity on? They might want to know your business operates? Or, they’ll want to determine what separates you from someone else in a similar space. The easier it is for potential clients and leads to find these details, the better chance you’ll have at securing them as a customer.  

An FAQ Page Answers Common Questions 

Overall, the most important factor to consider when constructing an FAQ page is exactly what someone might want to know about your business. Try putting yourself in the position of someone who isn’t as steeped in the day-to-day of your business as you are. This will help you write the “Qs” in your FAQ.  

These could range from 'What types of trips can I book?' or 'How does payment work?” Your FAQ page should provide clarity about the fundamental aspects of your business. Address potential inquiries related to pricing and availability, as these are often common customer concerns. Provide detailed answers about the factors that determine these prices, elements that influence costs, and any potential hidden charges associated with bookings through your agency as well.  

Remember, there are no dumb questions—even if your home page has a place designated to showing how to book with you, put that information on your FAQ page as well. You can’t always be sure what part of your website someone might visit first, so it makes sense to place the information they need in multiple locations on your website.  

An FAQ Page Is a Shortcut for Your Business

Think about constructing your FAQ page in the same way you might a blog article—it should flow from one question to the next. You wouldn’t put a question about payments directly below a question about, say, your bio and background.  
Be logical in how you arrange your questions so that people can find the answers they need quickly, and be sure not to cloud your answers with industry jargon that might confuse visitors more than it would help. 

Overall, you don’t have to get too in detail. Your goal should be for your visitors to walk away with the answers they need and not feel overwhelmed with the amount of information you’ve provided. It’s a tricky balance, but try adapting a rule of thumb of around two to three sentences per answer. It can’t hurt to take a glance at other business’ FAQ pages as well to observe common practices and how those companies structure their pages. 

If you keep these steps in mind, you’ll quickly discover why investing in an FAQ page for your website is a wise move for the future of your business to establish trust with potential customers, provide valuable information at their fingertips, and, ultimately, reduce the amount of time it takes to convert them from an interested customer to a confirmed booking.
