Daily background travel destination image

Published October 3, 2011

Last week, we launched North America rail and bus coverage on rome2rio. As part of that release, we also pushed out a new welcome screen experience with a high resolution image of Kleine Scheidegg in Switzerland. Today we begin daily rotation of the background image with travel destinations around the world – an idea very successfully employed by my former employer Bing.


The location of each image is shown in the bottom-right corner. Click on the image to issue the destination as a query on rome2rio and discover how to get there. You can also browse past images.


We invite our users to submit their own high quality travel photographs to images<at>rome2rio.com.

    The image of India shows a slum area. This is distasteful, as I’m sure there are just as bad areas in Australia as well!!
