45 Incredibly Stylish Vintage Travel Print Ads

Vintage Travel Print Ads

We’ve delved into the archives to bring you 45 of the most colourful and endearing old school travel print ads out there. In the ads below you’ll find sexy air hostesses, exotic people from far-flung corners of the earth and lots of catchy straplines, some of which would definitely be considered sexist and xenophobic by today’s standards.

Travel ads of the fifties, sixties and seventies differ greatly from those of the noughties. While modern ads rely heavily on expert photography, those of yesteryear feature gorgeous Rockwellian paintings and detailed illustrations, not to mention beautiful typography. They provide us with a glimpse into the past and an opportunity to see travel through the eyes of those that lived up to 50 years ago.
