Online travel company Orbitz Worldwide has partnered with the Puerto Rico Tourism Co. to launch “Orbitz Originals: Secrets of Puerto Rico,” a 10-part online video series that is hosted by travel expert Richard Bangs and is available for viewing at Orbitz.com/PuertoRico.
Supported by hotel discounts of up to 20 percent off and substantial flight and hotel package savings, this ninth installment of the “Orbitz Originals” series once again harnesses the power of online video to inspire travelers and increase bookings to this beautiful Caribbean destination.
“Orbitz Originals: Secrets of Puerto Rico” showcases the island’s accommodations, activities and adventures, and is created to entice travelers to visit and experience it for themselves.
“The Puerto Rico Tourism Company is very excited to join with Orbitz and Richard Bangs on this fantastic ‘Orbitz Originals’ series,” said Gabriel Emanuelli, director of global sales for Puerto Rico Tourism Co.
To date, “Orbitz Originals” videos highlighting Cancun, the Cayman Islands, Qatar, Vermont, Western Ireland, New York and Florida have been viewed more than 1 million times by travelers seeking inspiration for future trips. Bookings to those destinations have experienced double-digit growth over the life of each campaign, Orbitz said.
