verybody at travel:minds has passion and experience, a combination that makes us well placed to advise, plan and buy for our clients. Honesty and integrity is of paramount importance and we pride ourselves in producing flexible marketing schedules that are clear, concise and above all else meet the needs of the client regardless of budget or size. Our transparency means that not only do our clients trust us but so too do the media, meaning we are better able to secure great rates and the best positions.
We are a truly independent agency with no bias towards any one media type and this allows us to be objective and deliver media options that are right for your needs. Ultimately we act as an extension of the marketing team; we prepare marketing plans, present them, implement them, then optimize and report on them. This definitive process leaves you, the client, time to focus on other things.
