HolidayIQ, a travel community and holiday recommendation engine, has rolled out its first brand campaign to build awareness of the category. The film has been conceptualised by Happy Creative Services.
The film features different holiday options, from a ‘Tree House Resort’ recommended for honeymooners to a ‘Cave Restaurant’ with live music, to a tea estate that’s elderly friendly. The visuals portray people making use of recommendations from HolidayIQ to take off on their holiday.
Diptakirti Chaudhuri, CMO, HolidayIQ, said, "Travel is increasingly becoming a social and community-driven activity. Information and experiences travellers share as reviews serve as holiday inspiration and a resource for tips to a very large audience. At HolidayIQ, we are already India's largest travel community and we are on our way to building India's most engaged travel community."
Kartik Iyer, co-founder and CEO, Happy Creative Services, said, “Discovery is the most exciting part of any leisure travel. More so on a holiday, every one is in the mood to try something new. And authentic. But lets face it we are all pressed for time to actually to explore grounds up. Yet nobody wants to lose out on the good stuff. HolidayIQ delivers exactly on just that. Taking you to the point where you are sure you are going to like what you are going to experience. It’s like reading a map before the treasure hunt. With this campaign we have tried to bring alive that moment of discovery. The best part is, it’s about real experiences from real people.”
The 360-degree campaign which kicked off with this TVC will also have print, outdoor and digital legs.
