One of the best (if not the best) parts of the Super Bowl is the debut of fun and inventive commercials. This year travel brands like Turkish Airlines, Airbnb and Expedia made their voices heard with some heartfelt and moving advertisements aimed at those who love to travel and explore new places. Take a look below if you missed them on game day:

Turkish Airlines

Who better to narrate a commercial than Morgan Freeman? In this ad, Freeman uses his famously calming and reassuring voice to urge us to explore and bridge worlds through travel on Turkish Airlines, which actually flies to more countries than any other airline in the world.


Airbnb kept its commercial simple, but powerful, by overlaying its mission statement on top of the many faces of its hosts and guests worldwide.


Expedia’s commercial was one of our favorites, capturing the sense of wonder that comes along with exploring a new place. The ad follows a woman and all of her travels over her lifetime, stating that through travel, we gain the perspective and experience needed to create positive change in the world.
