Shhhh….wanna know a secret?

This is just between you and me OK. Oh & all of Facebook

Hooroo* to your treasured secret spot.                                                                 

Australian new online travel player Hooroo (a white label of Qantas) wants you to share your best secret hidden hideway. Quick you could win a prize. Pronto!!

“We’re on a mission to find Australia’s best secret spots.”

Hurry up you know you’ve got one. You know that amazing place that you retreat to for recharging, winding down, eating fish & chips on the beach & gazing wistfully (& restfully) out at dusk towards a deep blood-orange sunset. That place, that spot with hardly anyone. The one where if you’re super lucky and hide your shadows you can gaze upon schools of fish darting along a pristine coastal inlet and in between moss-covered boulders. That’s the one – where you’ve taken your family for the last five years and often had all to yourselves.

YES! Share THAT treasured secret spot with ALL of us!!

I get it. Social Media is about content, comment, interaction, sharing & engagement. Actually I really like Hooroo.com. It does inspiration & aspiration very well. However this is a #fail for mine. Secrets should be kept. They are more beguiling that way like, for example, the consultancy pictured below that I recently passed in Zurich, Switzerland & whose sign I couldn’t help but take a quick snap of. Hmmm what goes on in there? I’m quite happy for that to stay a secret!

Please stop licking the doormat. The doctor will see you now

* Definition of Hooroo = Aussie slang for goodbye (mate)

Is this a one way airfare?

Oh First Class makes this much more appealing…

Working in marketing in the travel sector I am oft to notice other travel advertisements. I’m always thinking how are our prices looking, could our images be better or are we missing the ‘next’ big destination?

This online ad from Emirates Airlines did catch my eye recently but for slightly different reasons. Book in your leave, buy the guidebook & pack your dreams you’re heading to…

Kabul, Afghanistan!

Kabul you say. Hmmm…doesn’t actually state whether these are return airfares, I guess the terms and conditions are on the website. Well I suppose First Class is the only way to travel to a desolate war-ravaged country.

Looking forward to next weeks hot deal…

Hurry set sail with this hot offer Two for one on Somalian Sunset Cruises. Don’t wait! No we’re serious, we can’t the navy’s coming!

Would three dollars have killed ya?

Not often you see someone round UP in Travel marketing

Hmmm…not everyday you see this type of marketing. There is a word for it but I’d like to keep this blog PG. Just me or there is an EXCELLENT opportunity here to have this airfare start with a ‘1’!!!

Peeps at Webjet – who ironically enough today announced a tidy profit of $A11 Million – with this type of pricing policy I reckon you may have left a couple of extra possible profit cents in consumers and/or competitors pockets.

I best end for tonight – it’s getting late. It’s 10:57pm. Aw what the hey let’s call it 11:02
