Editor TVCs, News Make a Comment

AUCKLAND, Today: The House of Travel agency creative team – spearheaded by Roy Meares with a little help from Gregor Nicholas – has completed Passport, the third commercial in House of Travel’s ongoing brand campaign, launched early February. 

The Better Together campaign has seen House of Travel record an increase in enquiries of 70% compared with same time in 2018.

House of Travel ceo Mark O’Donnell said, “We knew that by telling true stories we had created a strong and compelling campaign which would bring new customers through the door – but a 70% increase in less than two months is far more than we anticipated.”

“The commercials are backed by print, cinema, digital and outdoor.”

In the latest ad – based on a true story – the consultant solved a forgotten passport problem for a client minutes before the plane was due to take off.

Mark O’Donnell: “Again, the message highlights what good sense it is to work with a travel consultant and how they are with you every step of the way.

“And yes, the consultant did actually have to retrieve the passport that had been left in the copier!”

The commercials are backed by print, cinema, digital and outdoor.
