Orlando, FL (PressExposure) April 22, 2009 -- New Ad Medium To Reach Millions Worldwide
TEL AVIV, Israel (April 21, 2009) â Announcing a new advertising medium â the customized airline e-ticket.
Now, you can publish targeted ads and information on the e-tickets and e-itineraries passengers receive by email and then print at home or at the office.
The trailblazing e-tickets and itineraries, by truvle Ltd. ([http://www.truvle.com]), feature multicolored ads, banners, restaurant and shopping options, event promotions and other information based on travel dates, destinations, city of origin and other criteria. Travelers can click on links in the itineraries to get more information, make reservations and buy tickets. For easier travel planning, they can select activities â theater, snorkeling, basketball games, dining at sushi restaurants, etc. â and receive ads, coupons and recommendations based on their preferences.
âOur next-generation e-tickets and itineraries give advertisers a competitive edge in todayâs interactive travel industry,â says Alon Zaibert, truvleâs CEO. âtruvle has transformed them into a useful, attractive travel tool providing a personalized home page with special appeal to busy travelers.â
Billions of Billboards
Historically, travelers have been a desirable target because of their high level of disposable income, Zaibert points out. The new medium presents ads, banners, promotions and listings in a unique, interactive platform. It provides worldwide exposure to a captive audience of consumers â reaching millions of unique users daily -- while they are in decision-making mode. Messages are tailored to each passengerâs travel dates, destination, city of origin, gender, flight class and other information. truvleâs unique advertising medium has broad segmentation capabilities. Plus, it enables local advertisers to gain visibility with a large, targeted audience of travelers before they arrive in the market.
Zaibert estimates more than two billion airline itineraries were issued in 2008 in Europe and North America alone. âRoughly 65 percent of those e-tickets were issued through travel agents,â he says. âThatâs a lot of blank billboards.â
The software provides phenomenal tracking, according to Zaibert. Advertisers get in-depth information on campaign effectiveness. Reports are available online whenever theyâre needed. Advertisers can plan campaigns with pinpoint accuracy, thanks to detailed reports on reach, clicks, page views, demographics and more, all in real time.
âThe ordinary e-ticket and itinerary will go the way of the dinosaur,â Zaibert predicts. âIn their current format, they are confusing to read and limited in scope.â
The enhanced airline itinerary aims to make travel planning speedy and enjoyable. Content is continually updated, providing flight details as well as news; sports scores; currency exchange rates; airport information; weather; photos; maps, and myriad options for entertainment, nightlife, cultural attractions, restaurants, shopping, hotels, ground transportation, recreation, tours, medical services, Wi-Fi hotspots and more.
Travelers have all the information they need in one place in an attractive, easy-to-read format. For added convenience, they can insert trip details into calendars on their computers, cell phones and PDAs.
âProviding easy access to a wealth of targeted information, the enhanced e-tickets and itineraries have real value for busy travelers who donât have much time to plan,â Zaibert notes. âThey put all the essential trip information in one place, acting as a one-stop shop for travelers.â
truvle is working now with major airlines and travel agencies around the globe. Current travel industry partners include: Ophir Tours, the Carlson Wagonlit Travel representative in Israel; Issta, Israelâs largest travel agency; El Al Airlines, Israel; FCm Travel Solutions â Denmark, a major corporate travel and expense management services firm, and Flight Centre travel agency.
