The new version of our very popular travel WordPress theme, Cousteau Pro has just been added to our theme collection. Cousteau Pro is the ideal WordPress template for travel agencies and tour operators looking to display and promote their vacation packages in a beautiful and functional way, but also for serious travel bloggers looking to break away from a simple blogging theme. The package custom post type with its flexible categorization, listing and search options will give you the best platform upon which you can build your new site.
Built on a solid base
Cousteau Pro is based on our new Ignition Framework which provides it with all the necessary templates, custom post types, customization options and all other related functionality needed to make things work. This delegation allows the theme to do just one thing, make your site look pretty. Since the Ignition Framework is a common plugin among all our themes adding new features, fixing bugs, patching security vulnerabilities and releasing compatibility updates is a very simple and fast process.
Package post type
Cousteau Pro is the first Ignition Framework based theme offering the Packages custom post type. The custom post type is built to house travel and vacation packages featuring custom fields for pricing (total or per day/night), package duration in days, and custom listing button URLs in case you want to point to an external service. The layout of the content on each package is very flexible mainly due to the theme’s deep integration with the block editor allowing users to utilize both core and third party blocks, like the ones provided by GutenBee, our free custom blocks plugin, but also due to its compatibility with all major page builders. A simple and easy to use review and rating system has been implemented in Cousteau Pro which allows customers to leave their opinion along with a star rating on packages they previously booked. The average star rating from all reviews will be displayed on key theme locations.
Package search functionality
It is essential for your clients to be able to find exactly the travel and vacation packages they are looking for. Cousteau Pro brings with it all the tools needed to help them achieve this. The included search bar shortcode can be placed anywhere and gives customers the ability to search for packages by destination, vacation type, budget and trip duration. The results will be presented in a new page where users can choose to view them in a list or grid layout and change their presentation order based on price or duration.
Flexible package listing
Packages can be categorized based on the destination and also with the more abstract package categories taxonomy. Listing pages can be created using our GutenBee Post Types block in the content area of any page. Users can create listings of all packages or specific ones based on the destination or package category. Category filtering is available on listings with packages from multiple categories.
Unlimited color combinations
Cousteau Pro bundles dozens of color options in the WordPress Customizer making it easy to create a unique color scheme for your site. Customize the site’s accent, text, heading, button and form colors, change the color for the header, sticky menu, page title and footer without having to write a single line of CSS.
The theme offers out of the box support for the most popular eCommerce plugin for WordPress. Harness the power of WooCommerce to sell your travel packages, travel essentials, add-on services and even memorabilia from the comfort of your own site.
These are some of the most important features Cousteau Pro brings to the game. Learn more about the theme and grab your copy in the links below.
