'When You Orbitz, You Know'

New Advertising Campaign Highlights How Orbitz Helps Customers Select Hotels

CHICAGO, July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Orbitz (www.orbitz.com) today announced the launch of a new advertising campaign.  The new campaign and branded tagline, "When You Orbitz, You Know," shows how Orbitz provides the information and resources consumers need to book hotel rooms.

"Research tells us that consumers really want access to information that will help them make the right decisions when they book hotels," said Deborah Italiano, vice president of brand marketing for Orbitz.  "The ads show how we give our customers tools and information to make smart decisions when they book a hotel on Orbitz.com."

The campaign's first advertisement begins its run on television today.  The ad presents a traveler who sees future events before they occur as a metaphor for Orbitz customers who know what to expect from their hotel stays because they use Orbitz to help plan and book their trips.

Developed in partnership with BBDO New York, the new television ads will launch with a significant media presence across cable television, such as CNN, ESPN and Bravo.  Print ads will begin running this month in national travel and lifestyle publications including Travel & Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler, Bon Appetit and Food and Wine.

The new campaign highlights Orbitz's rich hotel content and resources, which give customers the knowledge they need to book the right hotel, including:

  • Total Price hotel search results, showing the total hotel price per night, including taxes and fees, upfront in the initial search results
  • Unfiltered hotel reviews
  • Interactive maps and Google Street View
  • Photos, videos and virtual tours

Orbitz also offers:

  • Hotel Price Assurance, promising that Orbitz customers get the best Orbitz price for their hotels
  • An enhanced Low Price Guarantee, giving customers ironclad confidence they're getting the lowest possible price
  • No Orbitz change and cancellation fees on hotel bookings
