Trainline Effect

Agency: Dude


Booking a trip these days can require uber organization, in-depth research and complex logistics. There are hundreds of routes to compare, serviced by multiple providers, with prices and timetables in continuous state of flux. Sometimes we need someone to make our life easier, make it simpler, and that's exactly why Trainline exists. As Europe’s leading train and coach app, the leading train booking app in Europe, it collects routes, prices and timetables and makes the purchasing process so simple that you would like everything, absolutely everything, to be as easy.
‘The Trainline Effect’ is a new multi-channel awareness campaign for the Italian market by international independent creative agency DUDE which will run on national TV networks, on demand, radio, out of home, digital out of home, social and digital channels.
The commercial showcases how Trainline makes booking any trip so easy, that people believe other things in life are just as easy. In ‘Date’ we see how the sheer ease and simplicity of using the trainline app gives a man a large dose of supreme confidence and a whole load of brazen swagger to approach a girl he has literally just laid eyes on, to ask for a date. Without one second of doubt, she turns him down immediately and he scuttles away with a little touch of wounded pride.
After easily and simply booking a trip on Trainline in ‘Parent’, a woman feels empowered to finally admit to her girlfriend that she can’t bear another precious Sunday at her parents house, only to discover the dreaded parents are visiting her this week. Both executions close with the endline “If only life were as simple as Trainline”.

This professional campaign titled 'Trainline Effect' was published in Italy in February, 2022. It was created for the brand: Trainline, by ad agency: Dude. This Film medium campaign is related to the Transport industry and contains 2 media assets. It was submitted over 2 years ago by Brooks: Zoe.
