How to use the widgets?
If your organization would like to promote car sharing as an economical & practical transport alternative, BlaBlaCar offers two free widgets that you will find valuable.
Find a ride – Passenger widget
Here is the HTML code to insert on your website:
<iframe src="//www.blablacar.fr/widget/EN_WIDGET_PSGR" style="border:0px; padding:0px;" width="180px" height="270px" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>
This widget is ideal if your audience are not coming to your venue in their own car, and are looking for an affordable travel alternative. For example, you can display it on your “How to get here” page, it will allow your visitors to find a ride in one click and save on travel (the cost of a trip in a car share is 76% less than a train).
Try it out here, just type in arrival & destination towns and click!
