Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010 | Uncategorized | No Comments

Global Cool Traincation campaignGlobal Cool launched its Traincation campaign at the end of March. The aim of the campaign was to promote flight-free travel around Europe by showing how easy it is to get around by train these days.

We made films of four celebrities – Rick Edwards, George Lamb, Scott Mills and Mr Hudson – taking Traincations to destinations around Europe, including Barcelona, Amsterdam and Munich. You can see all these films and find out more about the campaign here.

The Traincation campaign also gained a considerable amount of press coverage in the following publications:
