OverviewBack to top
Searching for specific booking or Customer information that you need is possible with our powerful search function found at the top of any page in your account.
Using the account search functionBack to top
To start searching by term, click the Search icon at the top of any page.
Once selected, a search bar displays where you type your search terms. A dropdown window also shows Recent Searches and helpful Quick Links.
Do you want to search for a term quickly? A shortcut to start searching right from your keyboard is to select the forward slash [/] key and just start typing.
Keyboard arrow keys [↑] [↓] can be used to navigate results. Click the [Enter] / [Return] key to confirm your choice.
As you start typing, the system dynamically displays results based on the search term entered. Click on each result to access the related resource.
A maximum of ten (10) results are listed at once. If more than ten (10) entries match your term, then the results list is scrollable.
|If your search term generates many matches, then the scrollable results window may take a few extra seconds to load.|
