Cleartrip debuts campaign featuring MS Dhoni


Cleartrip has unveiled its latest ad film featuring its new brand ambassador and cricketing legend, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. In this debut innings, Dhoni, also known as Captain Cool, showcases three quirky avatars – a pilot, a darbaan (doorkeeper), and a traveler – urging first-time users to choose Cleartrip for their travel bookings to enjoy fantastic offers and unmatched flexibility on flights, hotels, and buses, all under the brand’s promise of ‘ClearChoice’. This campaign comes at the perfect time, just ahead of the summer travel rush, aiming to appeal to a broader audience and expand Cleartrip’s market presence.

Through the storyline, the ad addresses common pain points faced by travellers, especially regarding last-minute cancellations and modifications. Dhoni, in his characteristic style, assures users that booking journeys with Cleartrip is hassle-free and flexible.

Expressing his excitement about the partnership, Mahendra Singh Dhoni said, “Throughout my career, traveling across continents, I have been a true globetrotter and discovered my love for travel. After so many years, travel has become something I look forward to. I couldn’t be more thrilled to come onboard Cleartrip, a brand that mirrors what travel should be like – fun, memorable, and meaningful. In my career, I continue to make tough decisions every day, but with Cleartrip, decision-making is easy and straightforward. Their commitment to transparency simplifies choices and allows anyone to confidently go on a journey of their dreams.”

Prahlad Krishnamurthi, CBO, Cleartrip, stated, “At Cleartrip, our fundamental aim is to democratise travel through superior offerings and unprecedented flexibility. Our latest campaign with Mahendra Singh Dhoni, an iconic figure with universal appeal, is to invite new users to come onboard Cleartrip and experience travel like never before.
