New campaign for RAC Insurance via J. Walter Thompson shows the benefits of being local

RACI_Interstate_BLOG.jpgJ. Walter Thompson Perth  has launched 'Interstate Strangers', a new integrated campaign for RAC Insurance. 

Building on the existing 'Power of membership' campaign platform, the new campaign highlights the pitfalls of dealing with an interstate insurance company, and the benefits of being looked after by RAC.  When you're with RAC Insurance, you receive local service, on local time, plus member benefits.
J. Walter Thompson Perth CD Joe Hawkins said: "The last thing you want in an insurer is to have everyone clock off when you need them the most. The time difference with the east, especially when daylight savings kicks in, becomes a problem when you're in WA. That's why dealing with an insurer in our local time zone is such a great benefit." 

RAC Insurance Marketing Manager Simone Woodward said: "When it comes to insurance, it's difficult for consumers to compare products or understand the difference between one insurer and another. This campaign allows us to highlight our local advantage in a way that demonstrates exactly what that means for someone who is insured by an east coast insurer. At RAC we're 100% local to WA, and we pride ourselves on our local service which allows us to better serve our members.  JWT has done a great job at bringing this insight to life via the 'Interstate Strangers' campaign."

Launched this week, the campaign comprises of TVCs, digital, OOH, print and radio.
