Toni Ambler, CMO Contiki Marketing Lab – “An exciting part of working in the youth travel industry today is the number of opportunities to collaborate with young people in creating new, unique content that provides a fresh take on traditional travel stories. At Contiki, we are constantly pushing ourselves to develop new, relevant content to engage our audiences, and to support and build on our amazing travel experiences. As a company, Contiki has been working alongside influencers, experts and young people to create truly relevant content for a number of years; Podcasts are a great new channel to continue to expand the type of content we can share, and to showcase the expertise and insight that social travel can bring. I’m excited for Contiki to be launching ‘Out of Office’ and creating a new dialogue with young people that isn’t just about travel – it’s about the human connection and unique experiences that live at the heart of everything we do”.

Katrina Barry, MD Contiki – “Out of Office is an evolution of what we have always done, appeal to young people where they are. With today’s youth being more globally and socially aware, we’ve been harnessing the power of influencers to speak to our customers about the things that matter most to them for some time now. All the same expertise and knowledge we bring to our travel experiences we’re also delivering to them in the new podcast.”
