Travelocity Go and Smell the Roses: New TV Commercials

Go and Smell the Roses.  It’s more than Travelocity’s new tagline and TV campaign. It’s our way of life.  We believe that the world is a magical place, and that adventures await in your own backyard.  In a nearby city.  Or an exotic, far-away place.  So don’t stop.  Go.  Smell the roses.  Taste the flavors.  See the world…and never look back.

No one embodies the ‘Go and Smell the Roses’ spirit more than our very own Travelocity Roaming Gnome.  In his brand new Travelocity TV campaign, the Roaming Gnome leaves the mundane behind to experience the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain, the joyful Holi Festival in India and other amazing travel destinations.
