Getting Started

A hyperlink is a reference to data (in this case your Wetu itinerary links) that the client can directly follow either by clicking on or by hovering over.  If a hyperlink is clicked on your client will go directly to the information you want them to see without them having to copy and paste the URL. 

Using a hyperlink is useful when the URL (i.e. www.URL.com) is too long or unattractive.

Each email program will look a little different, however, we have tried to cover the basics. Most of the time the process is very similar.

Step 1: Copy the URL

The URL is the website address at the top of the Internet browser. Highlight the URL and copy this text to your clipboard.

Step 2: Highlight the Text

Type the email you would like to send to the client, and highlight the text you would like to hyperlink. 

Step 3: in Gmail

Select the Chain Icon at the bottom of your email pop-up. 

Paste the URL into the section marked 'link to'.

Step 3: In Mac Mail

Select 'Edit' from the top menu and then select 'Add Hyperlink'. 

Paste the URL into the pop-up block.

Step 3: in Outlook

Right-click on the highlighted text and select Link or Hyperlink (this will depend on the type of mail you are using) in the menu that appears.  

A pop-up like the below will appear. 

The Text to display will be the text you highlighted. Paste the URL into the Address box at the bottom. 

Step 4: Complete

Once you select 'Ok' your text will turn blue (or a colour alternative to black) to indicate it has been hyperlinked. The email recipient will be able to open the web address by clicking on the highlighted text.
