MUMBAI:  ixigo.com, a travel planning and search engine, has kicked off its first ever integrated marketing campaign across television, OOH, radio and social media.

Speaking about the campaign, ixigo co-founder and CEO Aloke Bajpai said, “Since ixigo’s inception in 2006, it has been our goal to become the most trusted travel planning and research website in India. We strive to make travel an enjoyable and informed experience for our users with our apps, in-depth content and smart comparison of the best deals across travel sites.  We are optimistic that our first ever marketing campaign  will  help  us  reach  out  to  many  more  travellers  across  geographies  and  strengthen  our positioning of being the most trusted travel website in India.”

The campaign, in line with the brand essence of “know & go”, aims to position the portal as the ‘go to’ destination for travel information and planning. This has been rendered in the form of a TVC which is the backbone of the campaign and highlights the pitfalls of unplanned travel. 

In addition to the TVC, ixigo has partnered with leading radio channels to engage listeners ‘on the go’ through contests and trivia based activities. Innovative ixigo branding using TVC motifs will also be seen across major airports and OOH media.  Along with a strong offline campaign,  ixigo  will  also  be promoting interesting ‘know & go’ facts, videos and contests across social media and online channels.

Added, vice president marketing and product strategy Saurabh Srivastava, “Our marketing campaign is clearly aligned with our core brand message of “know & go”. With our first marketing campaign, we are confident that ixigo will find resonance and preference amongst users across the spectrum and through our innovative mobile apps and responsive website, we will be able to help people travel in the know.”

The creative idea dramatises the pitfalls of travelling without knowing. The execution is built around one of the most famous travel destinations of the world – The Taj Mahal. It isdirected by E Suresh from Eeksaurus films and conceptualised by ixigo’s creative AOR From Here On.

From Here On founder and MD Rajesh Aggarwal said, “In the crowded space of travel advertising, our cue was simple - demonstrate the peril of traveling without knowing, in a quirky manner, which breaks the clutter and creates a memorable and sticky visual metaphor for the brand.”
