Boosting bookings through to spring 2024

We’re gearing up for our latest burst of activity working with online travel agent – Expedia.

This is a continuation of our existing partnership with Expedia, part of our Scotland is Calling campaign.

The campaign is targeting the UK and US markets with the aim of boosting bookings through autumn, winter and into spring 2024.

Do you have a listing with Expedia? If so, make sure your business profile is up to date to benefit from extra traffic generated by this activity.

Campaign activity

  • UK market

    For the UK market our goal is to increase bookings for this autumn / winter.

    We've got a dedicated webpage on and to inspire visits to Scotland, including travel, accommodation and experiences. 

    Various themes are covered throughout including a spotlight on our wonderful cities. Activity will encourage people to book a trip to Scotland and increase their stay during this period.

    Activity starts on 1 September this year until 31 January 2024.

  • US market

    For the US market we’ll have two bursts of promotion from September – November 2023 (phase one) and then January to March 2024 (phase two).

    We've designed digital adverts encouraging users on the Expedia website to check out our dedicated Scotland page. Once on the webpage, users will be inspired with a range of accommodation, flight, and attraction offers for Scotland.
