These days, travel is serious business. Close to 10% of the world’s entire GDP – something like $7 trillion – is created thanks to the travel and tourism industries.
With that in mind, if you have a travel or tourism related website, there’s a lot at stake to ensure that your site looks great and offers a top-notch user experience for potential tourists and travelers who might be visiting your location in the near future.
That means using themes that offer features such as smart booking plugins for hospitality sites, sleek photo galleries to display images and videos, and the best navigation features to ensure a smooth viewing experience. Along with a generous array of travel-specific custom plugins and add-ons to complement the functionality of your website, there are also plenty of standard features that come with all of the themes we feature below. You can expect a plethora of beautiful fonts, color skins, and time-saving shortcodes. And of course, should you need help with setup or maintenance, all of these themes come backed by teams with a reputation for excellent support and customer service.
Depending on what sort of travel niche you’re in, we’ve sorted this collection out into four different categories:
- Travel Agency Themes
- Hotel Themes (for a list of 40+ hotel themes you can check this collection)
- Travel Blog Themes (for more travel blog themes this collection has you covered)

Travel Agency Themes
Without a captivating design, your tour or travel company website might not attract as much business as you’d like it to. With that in mind, Embark offers a modern and feature-packed theme for your travel site.
Embark comes with three demos to get you up and running quickly, which are tailored to a range of relevant niches. However, you can also create your own unique layout (and modify the demo templates) using the live, front-end, drag-and-drop page builder. What’s more, there are over 20 page templates to help you design a comprehensive site, and more than 40 widgets you can use to offer additional helpful content on your pages.
The functionality doesn’t stop there. Embark comes bundled with the Master Slider Pro plugin, to help showcase images of the various locations you’re promoting. A powerful form builder is also included, along with secure PayPal integration out of the box. If that’s not enough, Embark also provides a one-click guided installation process, to get you set up in less than three minutes.
There’s an absolute wealth of features packed into Embark, and we’d need another few hundred words to describe them all fully! Let’s just say that for setting up a tour or travel website, a flexible and versatile theme is a must – and Embark provides that and more.
In design, solutions that encompass almost everything you’ll need to get up and running are called ‘turnkey’ services. For travel providers, package holidays are essentially an agency’s turnkey solution. It’s fitting, therefore, that TravelKit is looking to position itself as a turnkey theme for your travel website.
It stands to reason that an agency offering complete holiday solutions needs a website with extensive functionality. TravelKit looks to get you up and running straight away with five demos each showcasing diverse designs. Regardless of the demo you choose, you’ll be able to take advantage of a number of custom post types covering hotel reservations, flight bookings, and even vehicle hire. What’s more, you can also create stunning photo galleries to show off your holiday destinations.
There are also extensive customizations on hand, such as a selection of Google Fonts, and a myriad of color schemes. In addition, you can build your layouts using the bundled Visual Composer plugin, which comes with over 20 shortcodes to help tweak your design to perfection.
A theme offering a turnkey solution for creating package holidays needs to deliver, and TravelKit succeeds. It’s a solid theme for creating your travel website, and should definitely become part of your shortlist.
If you run a tour site, chances are you’d like to let your customers to book tours online. Travel Tour focuses on making that possible by enabling you to implement a flexible, user-friendly tour management system.
The entire booking experience is designed to be as smooth as possible. Travel Tour enables you to create and display several types of tours for customers to choose from, including one-day and multiple-day tours that can be set to recur. Visitors select the tours they want via an easy-to-use booking sidebar, and have access to various payment options including PayPal, credit card, and bank transfer. You can incorporate multiple pricing options, and enable customers to use coupon codes during their purchase. After they have chosen a tour, customers have access to a personal dashboard where they can view previous or pending bookings, see their receipts, save wishlists, and review past tours.
In addition to these client-friendly features, Travel Tour aims to make the customization experience just as simple. This theme incorporates the GoodLayers Page Builder, which enables you to build content on your site using a drag-and-drop system that displays your changes immediately. There is plenty of demo material to choose from – including headers, layouts, and menus – and you can use the demo importer to pick and choose what you’d like to keep from those examples. Once the site is up and running, you’ll have access to an admin panel where you can approve or reject bookings easily, among other things.
Overall, Travel Tour is a focused theme that provides you with the tools you need to design and run a responsive booking site with minimal effort, while also ensuring a streamlined customer experience. We highly recommend it!
Travelo boasts a strong, and attractive, slider, along with a simple booking system for helping your visitors find the travel packages they desire. It works well with the PayPal payment system, and the responsive and flat design ensures that everyone can view it on tablets and smartphones. Not to mention, the more than 55 shortcodes keep your hands clean of any messy coding.
The SetSail theme is perfect if you want to be able to showcase your tours and all the locations. The theme comes with a number of different homepage layouts and tour layouts as well as a page builder that allows you to edit those layouts to your liking. You can easily pin your destinations on a map, add user reviews, display tour plans, and more. The theme comes with a blog page so you can share useful travel tips. There is also a shop page so you can even sell tour packages or even travel necessities directly from your website.
You can customize this theme even without coding knowledge as it uses a powerful theme options panel and comes with one-click demo import functionality. The theme responsive and optimized for SEO as well as translation-ready.
Sipping cocktails by a sun-drenched pool is only one aspect of taking a vacation; plenty of people like to take a well-earned break by getting in touch with their outdoorsy side. Entrada looks to meet the demand with a solid, well-thought out design.
This theme gives you the tools to get up and running straight away, with over 12 demo templates to choose from. It bears mentioning that a number of them are simply different variations on colors and header layouts. That being said, many of them are focused around offering search queries to the user, helping them find their ideal destination quickly. It’s a thoughtful approach that many other themes don’t offer.
The navigation is also user-focused. The secondary menu in particular runs prominently along the bottom of the screen, and displays icons alongside the various vacation categories. It’s a neat touch, and it all stands to help users find their perfect travel destination – all above the fold.
In addition, Entrada comes bundled with two popular plugins to help create your layouts – Slider Revolution and Visual Composer. It’s also integrated with WooCommerce and MailChimp, so all manner of user engagement is catered for.
While adventure breaks won’t be for everyone, a well-designed website will certainly help sell your vacation packages. To that end, Entrada could be the theme to help. It’s full of useful functionality, and is definitely worthy of being added to your shortlist.
The Traveler theme, despite the generic name, offers an onslaught of layouts including options for video backgrounds, grid images and a testimonials editor. The theme integrates well with PayPal to accept donations or sell your own services. The smart search comes in handy for visitors who want to find a certain article or video. It’s mainly designed for travel agencies and companies that cater to those interested in exploring the world. Beginners find it rather intuitive considering it comes with the Visual Composer plugin and a one-click install.
Adventure Tours is a useful theme for your travel agency or tour operating website, with a focus on offering various adventure tour packages.
A handy booking system should be central to any good travel website, and this theme’s booking system comes with the right features for your visitors to book their next trip with you. You can easily schedule regular tours, set a limited number of tickets for sale, add multiple time slots, and present crucial information about tours. For example, if you offer on shore excursions for cruise ship passengers, you can present a chronological timeline of activities, add a map showing major points along the sightseeing route, embed photos and videos in a gallery to show them what they can expect to see, and include certification badges or endorsements such as highest rated, on sale, or limited seats.
Crucially for your business, you can add five star-ratings endorsements from happy travelers who’ve booked and gone on your Alaska haunted mine tour or Costa Rica whitewater rafting tour – if people hear that everyone else has had a good time, they are more likely to book with you.
There are lots of other great features of this theme worth mentioning. Before your clients book, the search engine helps them find the trip most suitable to their tastes, budget, and desired location. If John wants to take his wife on a romantic beach vacation away from the kids and the cold winter for a week, you can set filters to steer him to your package boutique resort in the Dutch Antilles rather than a ski holiday in the Colorado Rockies.
If sleek design and high functionality are priorities for your travel site, Adventure Tours is an excellent theme to choose.
The Trendy Travel Theme integrates various features to provide a clean and lightweight website for travel agencies, hotels, tour operators, travel package companies and more. The banner includes an advanced search function, and the custom events calendar displays what’s going on in certain areas. Several custom posts are available for designing pages that feature things like tour packages, holiday packages and gift packages.
CityTours relies on an urbane, uncomplicated design that complements its primary purpose as an urban hotel and tour booking website theme. It’s an especially good choice if you want a copycat Airbnb website (and there’s no shame in that, really).
A simple yet elegant layout defines this theme, which is perfect for helping travelers look for a hotel or tour. The only ingredient you need to add is great package deals with hotels or tour groups; the rest is all taken care of for you thanks to well-thought out UI/UX development. Similar to Airbnb’s search page, CityTours gives you the option to show results in a grid-like fashion with eye-catching images of all the properties or tours available for customers to choose from. Search parameters enable travelers to filter out their options based on a number of different variables such as price, five-star ratings, existing customer satisfaction reviews, amenities and facilities included, neighborhood or district, and more.
It would be unfair to say this theme is nothing more than a wannabe Airbnb; there are some unique features offered. You can add tourist guide profile pages that give your certified tour partners a place to make their pitch to potential customers. You can also add tour or itinerary timelines that give detailed descriptions of the places your customers will go and the things they will do. Also, a nifty invoicing tool gives clients easy access to receipts they can use for expense account purposes, which will come in handy when it comes time to pay taxes.
You should give this theme a serious look if you want a proven design scheme and a useful assortment of features for your travel business.

GoExplore! is an exciting theme (that’s why it’s got an exclamation mark) that puts graphics at the center of your travel blog or destination website, with an emphasis on community-based contributors.
If you want a really sophisticated travel blog theme, the travel destinations plugin, exclusively designed for GoExplore!, will be a treat for you as well as your visitors. Many major travel blogs such as Nomadic Matt feature travel guides written up for site visitors to browse as they like – it’s a great way to build trust with your visitors and create an authority within a certain niche, such as budget travel in Europe or volunteer travel in Southeast Asia. You’ll be able to easily categorize blog posts, travel guides, or even sponsored versus unsponsored blog posts for your readership to better and more easily consume. And you can include directories with a wealth of information on topics ranging from restaurants to museums to free activities and whatever else you would like to inspire people with.
It also really helps that this theme comes equipped to handle community-based feedback and contributors. Think of how Lonely Planet’s website has lots of useful guides about pretty much every place on earth, written by paid contributors but also by enthusiastic travelers (like you). This theme gives you the option to do the same thing, enabling you to build an entire network of contributing writers who share their expertise on everything from island-hopping in the Philippines to finding budget flights from the USA to Europe.

People say a journey of a thousand miles starts with one step. However, these days it would be more accurate to say a journey of a thousand miles begins with a booking. If you’re the one putting together the travel plans, you need a theme to make booking simple – such as Wanderers.
The theme offers a robust combination of gorgeous aesthetics and handy features. It includes plenty of modern, ready-to-go layouts for most of the pages a travel agency would need. For instance, you get access to pre-designed about, contact, team, FAQ, and 404 pages, so you can get your site up and running within a few minutes.
Great pictures alone don’t make for a great booking solution, though. With Wanderers, visitors can easily navigate your offers using a broad range of filters, helping them find the perfect destination. You can add videos, images, in-depth descriptions, and more. Plus, visitors can even set up profiles to leave reviews once their trips are over. In our experience, no one leaves better reviews than happy travelers, so expect to see a lot of stars if your offerings are high-quality.

This is a responsive theme, and you can translate your article and pages so that everyone can understand them.
There are a myriad of options when it comes to choosing a suitable theme for your hotel or bed and breakfast. While choice is nice, you’ll come across several “me too!” themes that only serve to saturate the market. Unfortunately, Bellevue suffers in this regard – not due to low quality, but from a lack of standout functionality.
On paper, there’s plenty to like about Bellevue. There are seven demo layouts available – covering hotels, cabins, beach houses, and more – to help get you up and running quickly. And if you’d like to dive deeper with customizations, there’s a drag-and-drop page builder built into Glossy’s admin panel.
There are also a couple of bundled premium plugins – Master Slider and WP Booking System – that can enhance the functionality of your website. However, while the various inclusions are welcome, there’s nothing here that can’t be accomplished with other, more full-featured themes.
Bellevue is fighting a number of other themes for your attention, and therefore it may just be that your cash goes elsewhere. That being said, it’s a well designed theme that can do the job of showcasing your hotel or bed and breakfast – if it can capture your attention, that is.
The Paradise Cove theme is designed primarily for hotels, with responsiveness and multiple sliders included.

If you want people to book your properties, you need to play up what makes them unique.

Marina could be your go-to theme for creating a unique and captivating site.
The default, site-wide style is clean white and blue, which is perfect if you want to feature seafront properties. It includes layouts for hotels, resorts, and even single rooms. With every style, you can include prices right within each picture you show visitors, so they always know what they’re getting for their money.
As far as functionality goes, Marina enables you to process bookings using the bundled WooCommerce plugin.

The theme is fully responsive, optimized to load fast, and comes with custom widgets to display your photos, social media links, and ads.
There are some who consider poolside cocktails, blaring heat, and relaxation to be low down on their list of vacation priorities. Adventure breaks cater to the outdoorsy crowd, and if you’re looking to document your travels, you’ll need to employ a suitable theme such as The Trip.
Unlike other themes on this list, The Trip is focused on your personal experience – essentially it’s a travel blog theme. As such, it doesn’t include some of the functionality found in other themes on this list. That being said, The Trip does include a custom drag-and-drop page builder, and also bundles both the Layer Slider and Slider Revolution plugins – perfect for creating full screen intro pages, prominent calls to action, and much more.
While the focus of The Trip is not the same as other themes here, it’s no less of a contender for your cash if you’re looking to document your adventure vacation. Given its built-in page builder and bundled slider plugins, it could be right up your street.

What sets this theme apart is a set of custom destination post types which have been created so you can easily share information about a particular destination. Share information about food, nightlife, places to see, user reviews, and any other important tidbits your readers want to know. You can monetize the site by selling your travel guides thanks to WooCommerce integration. In addition to that, the theme is fully customizable, responsive, and includes custom social sharing options.

Himmelen sounds a bit like Himalayan, and this evocation of the rugged mountains is a fitting name for a theme that is well-suited for a travel blog or zine of epic proportions.
The stark charcoal gray and white of the demo version set the tone for a blog that delivers elegant prose, beautifully filtered images, and Pinterest-worthy inspiration posts to readers. The visual experience of Himmelen is gorgeous: Simple arrows for scrolling through posts turn a darker shade when you hover over them; buttons are monochromatic and go from transparent to solid; images go slightly foggy when your cursor pauses on them. There are also nine different blog post styles ranging from header images to video and photo gallery posts if your work is less wordy and more visual, and navigating the galleries is a joy in itself. On top of this, perfectly balanced typography makes this theme beautiful to behold all the way down to the periods, commas, and semicolons. At the very top of the page, the header stays with you as you scroll downwards, making navigation simple and easy.
To better engage your readers, certain types of modules have been made just for this theme. A popular posts section shows off blog posts that your readers will be more likely to click on, based on parameters that you set. You can also show off Instagram-themed Inspiration and longform Stories sections that showcase quick short posts and more in-depth articles, respectively. If you feature contributing writers on your website, a bio section at the bottom of each article gives them credit where it is due.
With such an inspiring aesthetic and user-first design at the core of this theme, Himmelen is a fantastic pick for your next travel blog or magazine project.
Squaretype is another great choice for travel websites. It features a clean and modern design that can be used to display your content in an appealing way. It features nine demos that you can select from as well as a hero section that allows you to display featured posts in a multitude of layout styles.
Some other features worth mentioning here include sidebar options, background color options, multiple heading sizes, category filters, header types, smart colors, live preview, archive and homepage layouts, page layouts, and a mega menu you can customize. Finally, a few other features you should know about include Google Fonts, sticky (and smart) navigation, and mobile slide-out widgets. This theme is truly multipurpose and it proves that in its feature set.
WPVoyager is a great choice for you if you have a travel blog and aren’t looking for lots of bells and whistles other than a beautiful place to display your photography and writing.
You can tell this a travel blog because the map takes front and center as the header of your webpage – what else is a travel blog for, if not to show off the places that you have traveled? A simple header menu makes for great navigation across your website, plus easily embedded photos and videos to help illustrate your story.
While it’s not going to win accolades for an avalanche of features, WPVoyager is a good choice if you need a blog theme but want to keep the design simple but cool.
Tourism is a responsive travel theme with a powerful search module. The responsive theme would be ideal for a travel journal and comes with five color style options for customization. The theme has a distinct look that would suit a world traveler well.

Travelogue has three layout versions, including video background, Revolution Slider and background image options. The responsive theme includes portfolio filtering to show off your best content.
