Saga Travel The World is Waiting to Meet You campaign

Saga Travel launches new travel campaign

Saga Travel has launched a new advertising campaign and the new creatives are supported by primetime advertising for the first time.

The campaign is told through the stories of three global characters. The films, rather than focusing on destinations instead showcase the lasting impact travellers have on the people they meet when travelling.

Stuart Beamish, Group chief customer officer, said: “This is a very exciting new approach for Saga.  Rather than showcasing individual travellers and destinations, by contrast, our travel campaign flips the focus and celebrates the immensely powerful mark we all leave on the people we meet, whatever age we are, and wherever we go around the world. This idea is captured in the campaign line, ‘the world is waiting to meet you’.”

The three spots shot on location feature global citizens regaling their stories, in their native language, of the Saga travellers they have met. Mongolian Eagle Hunter Ahelbek retells the story of Charlotte ‘who danced till her shoes fell apart’, while Norwegian Sami lady, Mary-Sarre, laughs about how Brighton couple Peter and Amy ‘had her singing musicals!’, and finally Spanish Guitar playing Pepe who sings of lively Molly from Exeter ‘who broke his heart’. 

Each film, directed by Siri Bunford, celebrates the rich experience of travel. 

Beamish continued, “I am thrilled that together we have produced such an emotive, powerful campaign and I can’t wait to see it in the market.”

Guy Moore, creative director at VCCP said: “Saga is often thought of as a gentle, all cruise ships and silver hair brand. Which is not the truth. So it was time to change the conversation and define Saga not by age, but by energy and vivacity.

“Featuring only the people they have met on their travels with the line ‘The world is waiting to meet you’ you’d be forgiven for thinking Charlotte, Molly, Peter and Amy - the subjects of our stories - were in their 20s or 30s, because age is only a number!”

Campaign launches at the end of December with TVC launching on January 4, 2019 in a primetime slot at 9.31pm..
