    Which number 1-6?

    If you like some bits and not others, I'd be interested to hear.

    Being designed by an agency we've worked with before. They design some great stuff.

    Thanks everyone.

    I think the backgrounds are all to noisy/distracting

    You don't want to take attention away from the main points you're trying to put across.

    I prefer 2 or 3, busy but effective!
    I think number 1 looks like 1960's wallpaper and probably smells of mould!!!

    2.

    I'd also wrap the white text around with an opaque dark background like the header otherwise can get slightly lost in background.

    I think I like the style/colour scheme of 1, but the layout of 6.

    I like 6 personally. But it would be worth doing some tests with random members of the public.

    It would be interesting to know if a form converts better on the left hand or right hand side of the page with layout 6. Most booking sites have it on left, so that is probably the winner.

    The current trend with the likes of AirBnB etc is with the horizontal type form under the headline though.

    I think generally, 'me too' small players offering nothing unique at all should just effectively outsource all of their market research. Copy whatever all the big boys in your niche are doing... if they're making millions then its a fair bet they've split tested things till the cows come home and their current setup is a winner.

    TripAdvisor are using the horizontal type. But they're not exactly in your niche... go look at what all the major car rental places are doing and copy that would be my advice.

    Revised design

    Thanks for all comments.

    We're drifting away from an illustrative feel to an image.

    This image seems to fit the design quite nicely.

    Revised font in the logo too.

    I like the one you have just posted Phil but also like the icons from image 1. Not keen on the font used for the logo.

    If you are going with an image, I think that one is good as it's not too distracting from the main aim of getting them to fill the form in.

    My main concern would be building on a hyphen domain.... It screams cheap affiliate site and you will be giving away traffic to the real version of the domain. Can you name a single real brand that operates on a hyphen without owning the other? Big brands don't do it.... Therefore you shouldn't either.

    That image is by far the best of the lot.

    Looks good, and that format (clear CTA over image) works for a lot of big sites these days.

    None of the options look bad though.

    Don't suppose you can share the name of the agency?
    Do they charge a fortune?
