press trips for a new era

immersive, ethical, sustainable travel

As the world recovers from the pandemic and communities struggle to cope with the impact of climate change, ethical and sustainable travel firm Pure Breaks are showing the new type of traveller that holidays can provide purpose, as well as pleasure.

We arranged a new type of press trip for Pure Breaks to the Indian Ocean nation of Mauritius, whose chief operations officer has a particularly strong link to island – it being the birthplace of his mother. We achieve stunning media coverage for the business and the destination, overseeing a diverse team of journalists working for mainstream press, travel industry media and sustainable tourism publications. Hard work, great fun, and cost-effective for everyone involved.

30 pieces of UK national and regional media coverage while the trip was ongoing. Combined audience of over 1 billion readers worldwide.

On return, a 10 page feature in the UK’s leading most prestigious travel publication.

Four other travel features, five luxury hotel reviews, and social media posts achieving an estimated 1 million impressions.
