Why Travel and Tourism brands use Direct Mail

Addressed mail items (Direct Mail) can create a more personal touch, with the ability to personalise a creative to a recipient and their location, this media channel can create more standout for your brand, creating more cut-through against some of the digital channels your competitors might be using.

With a physical item, people have more time to read, review or revisit the content sent to them. Mailshots for the travel and tourism industry are a great opportunity to create awareness and create a mini show-case of what is on offer for your business and brand. This could be strong visuals for your local attraction, details of where to visit for a tourist board or specific offers for holiday locations or hotels.

Example Case Study: Virgin Holidays  

Background: Encourage holidaymakers to combat the low they felt after returning from a trip by booking their next journey with Virgin Holidays, rather than short-haul carriers

Strategy: The Welcome Home Programme used the “peak-end” behavioural economics principle, where changing the end of an experience – in this case, to match the level of service provided during a passenger’s initial booking – positively affects perception.

Direct Mail was used as part of a multi-media campaign for a nostalgic, personalised “miss you already” postcards were waiting on people’s doorsteps when they arrived home.

These were followed up with personalised mugs, recipes based on previous destinations and a money-off voucher to boost new bookings.

The blend of nostalgia and planning kept holiday desire high. The excitement was channelled into action using personalised “count-up” emails showing customers how long it had been since their last holiday, and inspiring them with fresh destination suggestions based on their browsing habits.

Results: Overall, the campaign was the main contributor to a 10% increase in loyalty in 2018, equating to a £2.2m in revenue and 30:1 ROI.
