Booking.com I Idris Elba says things | 2022 big game ad

In this Big Game ad, Idris Elba takes you on a special journey into the heart and soul of Booking.com. In a way that only he could pull off. While staying on-script - mostly.

And remember, at Booking.com, we know you and your loved ones are what make a vacation special, we're just here to help you get the best out of it. #BookingYeah

Booking.com | Idris says all the wrong things

So Booking.com is all about simple, lay-it-all-out-there honesty. And that truth is also shared by our spokesperson, Idris Elba. Watch Idris do the kinds of Idris things you've definitely never seen. Or imagined before.

You may know him as Idris the detective, superhero, tough guy, or all-around annoyingly-good-at-everything-sexiest-man-alive, but... there are other sides of Idris. Many other sides. We had the honor and pleasure of spending three amazing days with him, as he riffed and improvised these campaign films into being. All with a great energy and smile. Our only regret is that we couldn't cut a 30-minute commercial for you to enjoy. But here's some highlights anyway.

Booking.com - Travel Proud: We filter places, not people, Double bed (2021)

In 2021, a slow year for global travel, Booking.com 'all of a sudden' realized that LGBT+ travellers may face problems and situations that other travellers won't. Something that has been known for at least 50 years, but it was an epiphany @ Booking! So, they created Travel Proud, to train and certify accommodations.

A big marketing campaign was set up in 2021, with a series of videos, one of which you see here.

At Booking.com, we believe that life is made richer with new experiences and that nothing should stand in the way of us having them. Travel Proud is our way of helping to remove some of the barriers that LGBTQ+ travellers can face. We help them find the most welcoming places to stay. Places where they can show up as all of themselves. #TravelProud
