This latest 2021 Booking.com advert encourages us all to ‘Travel Proud’ as we see LGBTQ+ travellers with their families and friends on holiday. We see them enjoying staying at a hotel making use of rooms service and the swimming pool.
A voice-over then says “At Booking.com we filter places not people. Introducing Travel Proud, the badge that helps you find the most welcoming places to stay.”
The music in the Booking.com Travel Proud advert
Music: Blue Skies | Artist : Doris Day
The music in the new 2021 Booking.com Travel Proud advert is a song called ‘Blue Skies’ performed by American actress Doris Day.
The song was written in 1926 by American composer and lyricist Irving Berlin as a last-minute addition to the Rodgers and Hart musical ‘Betsy’. ‘Blue Skies’ has been performed by many musicians and performers over the years including Benny Goodman, Willie Nelson and a performance by Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye in the 1954 film White Christmas.
