Adding a button-group for a few options
Reducing the space with a number stepper for the day selector
From a dropdown with all the options listed, to a tab system with all the information hierarchised and styled

Format and configuration
The test was made at the Girona’s office, with people from different teams, interviewed individually in person. It was considered that five participants could be enough for understand the behaviour. It was moderated by a member of the team who was in charge to explain the scenario and the role of the tested user and answer the questions of the interviewed user when was needed.
Instructions given to the users for the test
You are go skiing with your friends 8 days, you want to book ski lessons 6 days, after the selection, you can continue with the booking.
Typology of participants Because the team knew the other teams people’s personality, participants was chosen trying to find different attitudes.
Participant 1:Marc - optimistic and practical
User is not able to arrive to select 6 days. Because he was not able to find what he want, he decide to find a telephone number in order to call and ask for the specific selection.
Participant 2: Laura - optimistic and curious
She is not able to arrive to number 6, the user assume that because there is no content shown there is no option to continue. She decides to leave the site without any selection.
Participant 3: Dani - pragmatic
This user not only don’t understand that he can’t go further after the day 5 but also starts challenging different behaviours of the component. He decides to don’t rent the lessons on our site and do it when he arrives at the destination.
Participant 4: Robert - pessimistic and very critical
he was lost trying to understand every step, the team considered not relevant the outcome of this participant because he didn’t take the roll of a real user and he continuously wanted to share his hypothesis.
Participant 5: Lluis - apathetic
because he was not able to find the number of days for the category he want, he chose a different category (advanced instead of beginner) by error. So it was a different kind of fail.
Usability: With the tested design, users was not able to understand they can go further with the number stepper, when they are selecting amount of days and there is a disabled day.
Business: If people don’t have the specific selection they want, they just leave without any selection.
