The history of Travelocity
Travelocity was born in 1996 - but its story goes back about a decade before that. That's when American Airlines shared Sabre, its computer reservation system, with travel agencies. Travelocity is a subsidiary of Sabre and its first leader was Terry Jones, who had also been an IT executive at Sabre.
When they debuted, they were the first website that let shoppers book tickets without needing a travel agent. Today, it's one of the biggest brands in the entire travel industry, and it's owned by Expedia.
Have you heard about The Roaming Gnome?
One of the all-time best moments in travel marketing was a brilliant campaign run by Travelocity. It was introduced in 2004, but so popular that the character they created is still going strong today!
That character is the Travelocity gnome, or, as he's officially called, The Roaming Gnome. He's voiced by English actor and comedian Harry Enfield. The original campaign had the tagline "You'll never roam alone."
Today, the gnome is so popular that you can buy all sorts of gnome figurines online, including ones wearing sunglasses, ones in the form of stress relievers, and ones themed from different countries. There's an entire store dedicated to selling memorabilia of the gnome.
The gnome even has his own Twitter account. Why not see what he's up to @RoamingGnome? He might be exploring the pyramids of Mexico, going to German Christmas markets, or taking in the views of the Brooklyn Bridge.
