Whether used as publicity stunts or as ways to encourage people to indulge in a vacation, these unusual travel bookings will pique people's interests in vastly different ways. As the world gets smaller, so too are people's wallets due to economic strife, poor financial planning and more. Hotels, airlines and even countries are becoming as creative as they can to entice people to use their services and travel the world. Enter these unusual travel bookings.

For instance, Kayak.com partnered with HBO to promote a fake trip to Westeros. This campaign increased viewership for both parties involved. Another example of unusual travel bookings owes itself to Twitter. People are able to connect with travel agents on a different level through the social media network, taking the stress out of such a task.
