Don't Skip the Trip
Flights.com multi-channel creative campaign helps increase YoY traffic growth by 250%.
Flights.com, a subsidiary of Expedia, Inc., exists to make traveling the world easy, affordable, and fun. And when Expedia’s 2015 Vacation Deprivation study revealed that 92 percent of Americans felt happier after a getaway, yet the country’s workforce left 500 million vacation days unused, our team saw a unique opportunity to promote more travel. It may seem easy to encourage people to take a vacation, but we couldn’t underestimate the pressures of a busy work life, which is one of the main reasons people don’t take the time off that they deserve.

Our opportunity was crystal clear. We needed to remind travelers of the best reasons to book a flight and take a trip: to revisit favorite people, places, and pastimes. And with that, we launched Flights.com Facebook Connect. By adding the feature, travelers could receive customized deal updates on flights to their most-visited check-ins. Inspired by this technology and the power of nostalgia for long-ago vacations, we created the “Don’t Skip the Trip” campaign to encourage travelers to use their vacation days and educate them about the benefits of taking a break from late nights and holidays spent at the office. We thought it was time people made new memories—and they agreed.
We planned a timely holiday launch of a playful yet informative multi-channel creative campaign, including three humorous brand videos, partnerships with travel industry influencers, social, and PR promoting the campaign via Flights.com-owned channels, including social media and the blog. It worked—we created a dynamic online presence that helped increase YoY traffic growth by 250%.
