Axis Bank tells people to use its forex card for hassle-free foreign trips

Private sector lender Axis Bank has launched a digital campaign to create awareness about the convenience and safety of using its forex cards over cash on foreign trips, enabling travelers to make the most of their experiences.

The campaign’s communication is crafted in line with the bank’s priorities and communication strategy of depicting “progressive mindsets”.

This campaign includes a series of short videos showcasing a modern day father-son relationship. Axis Bank strategised the campaign, leveraging consumer insights on how Indians have been increasingly taking overseas vacations and thereby underscoring the importance of creating further awareness about forex cards.

The campaign has been designed keeping in mind a UN World Tourism Organisation report released in January 2018 that predicts that India will account for 50 million outbound tourists by 2020.

Speaking on the launch of the campaign, Asha Kharga, Chief Marketing Officer, Axis Bank, said, “We know that the predominant consumer behaviour is to carry cash, but doing so is inconvenient. One has to keep it safe, one has to look for money changers, the currency is unfamiliar and hence all these hassles come in the way of the holiday experience. Our forex cards addresses these functional barriers and we have showcased the same while being true to Axis Bank's brand ethos of "progressive mindsets"."

“An elderly father who always toiled hard and was comfortable with cash and rarely took a holiday from work. It's endearing to see a conventional man savoring his first international holiday while his young son manages the show back at home. The Axis Forex Card is a true enabler, helping the elderly father make the most of his holiday, far away from the worries of managing cash,'' added Kharga.

Arun Iyer, Chairman & Chief Creative Officer, Lowe Lintas, said, “The idea was to show how holidays are more fun-filled when you don't have to worry about forex in cash. This was brought alive through a modern story of father-son, where the son gets his father to take a break from work and cash, two long ingrained habits he had. And to make it appeal to all kind of travelers, we decided to keep it real and warm.”
