Repeat: not a joke…

Walkers, one of Britain’s leading crisps companies has come up with a sensational way to market their latest Sensations range of crisps, aka potato chips to non Brits. To celebrate their new internationally inspired flavours, the company has created a pop up online travel agency, offering 100, $1.99 flights to places all over the world, including Italy, the USA and Thailand. It’s as bonkers as it sounds, but it’s also as awesome as it sounds. Here’s how to take a bite out of this amazing promo…

For Bologna the budget is any one return flight up to £220, for Bangkok it’s £650 and for New Orleans it’s £600. With that budget, you could fly a five star airline, and perhaps if you’re really lucky – even premium economy. The flights must be booked a month in advance and for travel before 28 February 2020, but that should be easy enough to work. Here’s the T&C’s.

According to Walkers, they came up with this clever viral marketing campaign for their new internationally inspired crisps after it was revealed that over 50% of the public finds money as the major factor that keeps them from travelling, and 79% of millennials would rather spend money on experiences than on a home or car. If you win the £1.99 flights, you may be able to afford both…
