Humor’s Role in the Travel Show Genre

Driven by consumer desires for new experiences, innovative technologies and environmental impacts – travel is changing. Host Sarah Dandashy explores the technologies and logistics that power travel and the brands that build unforgettable experiences.

 

On this episode of Say Yes To Travel, I talk to Andrew Lock, the Founder and Host of The Travel Pro Show, a travel show for frequent flyers and business travelers or anybody looking for luxury travel. The duo talked about Lock’s background, his love for travel, and the international flights during a pandemic.

Lock is British-born and now a dual British/American citizen. After his first time on a plane, he got the travel bug at the age of 7 – on a family vacation to Bulgaria. He established a travel agency in his mid-teens, booking flights and travel experiences for friends and family. He started The Travel Pro Show when he noticed the lack of humor on travel content on YouTube and blogs.

“There was nothing that was a t.v. show and entertaining,” Lock said. “With my background in video production and working for the BBC, I felt like I could bring something different to the table that was high quality.”

As did the rest of the world, Lock didn’t do much traveling over the past year. His dual citizenship allowed him to travel between the U.S. and England during the Pandemic, which turned out to be unique. He also took a trip to Malta, Sweden, and Denmark, which required COVID-19 tests.

“That, in itself, was quite a surreal experience,” Lock said. “Basically, for the last year, I would say, at the most, there have been about 12 people on the international flights.”

Listen to hear more about Andrew’s show and what trips he has planned for this year.
