Eurostar launches new brand campaign and loyalty programme promising customers ‘Together we go further’
The new Eurostar, bringing together Eurostar and Thalys, has launched to customers on 1 October 2023. A new brand, a new website, a new app and a new loyalty programme are the first steps in the creation of the new company, whose ambition is to carry 30 million passengers a year by 2030. Today, Eurostar also announces its brand-new advertising campaign, which will be live across its European destinations from 16th October 2023.
Gwendoline Cazenave, CEO of Eurostar: "Today, with our teams and for our customers, we are writing a new page in the history of high-speed rail travel in Europe. With Eurostar, our customers will have Europe at their fingertips. Our ambition is clear: more Europe for a unique and sustainable travel experience.” A new story that begins with the most frequent customers: a unique loyalty programme
Eurostar launched its new Club Eurostar, a joint loyalty programme for MyThalysWorld and Club Eurostar members.
The new Eurostar Club programme, with over 2.5 million members, takes the benefits of the previous programmes even further: it is designed to be generous, allowing members to earn points more quickly.
The programme has four statuses: Classique (0 to 499 points), Avantage (500 to 2899 points), Carte Blanche (2900 to 4999 points) and Etoile (over 5000 points). Members earn 1 point for each euro/US dollar spent, and 1.2 points for each GBP spent. It retains the features that members have come to love: no hidden fees, no deadlines and no taxes.
Reinventing the idea of sustainable travel in Europe
Almost 30 years ago, Eurostar and Thalys crossed European borders for the first time by high-speed train, opening European train travel to a new generation of business and leisure passengers. Since then, travelling by train between London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Cologne and Paris has become the new norm. As of the 9th October 2023, the new Eurostar is reinventing the idea of sustainable travel in Europe, not just by train, but with a new brand, a new signature and a new campaign in film and out of home advertising.
. A new brand
Eurostar has chosen, as its symbol and new logo, a star inspired by the North Star, the original train service linking Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam, and which pays homage to the first Eurostar logo. A sparkling animated graphic, the Spark, acts as a compass and embodies the brand's ambitions.
. A new signature
The new campaign slogan Together we go further underlines the customer promise Eurostar stands for; to take them even further, thanks to its expanded network across five countries.
A new campaign
In a bold, colourful animated universe, Eurostar is energising the brand in line with its key attributes: European, inclusive, unique and sustainable. The campaign, created by adam&eveDDB and DDB Paris, aims to establish the markers of the new Eurostar's promise: new travel opportunities, an eclectic Europe within reach of the train, the choice of a sustainable journey and a unique, premium travel experience.
In a 60-second spot created in collaboration with Riff Raff and The Mill, two women meet on board Eurostar and find themselves transported into the vibrant world of travel opportunities across five cities.
By mixing live action and animation, Eurostar invites its customers to imagine their own travel experience. The Spark, a 6-pronged 3D spark, is used throughout the campaign to establish the link between the real and imaginary worlds of travel, as well as the link between Eurostar and its customers.
The advert will be launched on television and in cinemas from 16 October in the five countries of the Eurostar network: France, Belgium, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Germany.
The audiovisual campaign is also accompanied by out of home and digital advertising featuring the two heroines. Ten local artists from the cities served by Eurostar were commissioned for the various visuals bringing each destination to life.
This professional campaign titled 'Together We Go Further' was published in United Kingdom in October, 2023. It was created for the brand: Eurostar, by ad agencies: adam&eveDDB and DDB Paris. This Integrated medium campaign is related to the Transport and Travel and Tourism industries and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted about 2 months ago.
