Mjukvaran som används på Wikitravel heter Mediawiki och har en bra sökmotor. För att söka efter något namn eller term som nämns i artiklar på Wikitravel, skriv in ordet eller orden i Sök-fältet i menyn till vänster.
Artiklar som matchar sökbegreppet som artikelnamn förtecknas först. Därefter följer sökbegreppet förtecknat i de artiklar det eventuellt finns med i. Normalt visas de första 50 artiklarna

If you'll permit us to make excuses for a second: the Wikitravellers who write, edit, illustrate, and lay out Wikitravel are just people like you, who come in off the Internet and start helping out. We're all volunteers with limited spare time, there's only so many of us, and we've only been at this since July 2003. And it's a big world out there; there's bound to be gaps in our coverage. But believe us: we're trying as hard as we can to get those gaps filled.
There are a couple of things you can do from here:
