Advertising along motorways and major roads in the UK is a marketing medium that can be successful and effective in promoting messages in both the commercial and public service sectors.
Motorway advertising is often an overlooked form of roadside advertising, but this form of billboard advertising is a popular and growing form of outdoor advertising media with a range of diverse advertisers employing it. The success and impact of motorway advertising is proven.
This means you’ll find motorway advertising used by international car companies and national brands (as people who use motorways can literally be travelling anywhere across the UK) as well as more local businesses based in that particular region.
Roadside advertising boards are seen not just by those driving, but also by passengers in cars too and options for motorway advertising typically include standard billboard ads such as 48 sheets and 96 sheets, as well as more bespoke roadside banner advertising options and eye-catching outdoor advertising boards in key positions.
When travelling by road, there is little to focus on (apart from the road) and so drivers and passengers are often receptive to brand messaging they’re exposed to during car journeys. This is why roadside advertising in general (and particularly motorway advertising) is both effective and popular across different business sectors.

A recommended minimum spend is around £2000 to have a decent impact.
Motorway advertising refers to billboards (either made up of traditional poster-board or digital options) stationed along motorways or traffic routes to attract the attention of potential customers. These large advertising billboards are usually located along routes of high traffic and are often placed in fields in order to generate extra income for farmers or landowners.
Motorway billboards may also be placed at service stations, roundabouts or on the side of buildings or structures.
Also included in the term ‘motorway advertising’ is portable motorway advertising screens, which are affixed to vehicles and driven around busy routes to gain exposure from drivers and passengers whilst ‘on the move’. These advertising trailers are less common but can still be found in the UK, sometimes these are referred to as trailer adverts or trailer advans (but come under the definition of trailer advertising).
The impact of motorway billboard advertising has long been successful and continues to be today, it is one of the most popular forms of national outdoor advertising we deal with at Billboard Advertising.

As a still under-used marketing channel, motorway billboard advertising costs are fairly low compared to other channels in the out-of-home marketing sector.
There are some fee variables to take into account when considering motorway marketing;
As with all forms of billboard advertising, different advertising firms charge different fees, dependent on their available placements and the number of adverts that a business chooses to place. This is a hassle we will take out of your hands right from the off at Billboard Advertising; negotiating and managing the numerous advertising company relationships for you and giving you one price to cover everything rather than having you pay various invoices for different amounts on different dates to different businesses. We will take care of it all!
Understanding your target market and shaping your marketing messaging and strategy around them is key when it comes to brand, product and service awareness. The Chartered Institute of Marketing says that putting the customer at the heart of everything you do is the key to successful communications and promotions, and at Billboard Advertising we agree!
When travelling, particularly for prolonged periods of time, passengers are likely to become bored or restless and their attention will wander. This is the ideal time to convey brand messaging to them, as they are open-minded and in need of a distraction. National outdoor advertising (sometimes known as OOH, Out-Of-Home advertising) is therefore often welcomed rather than rebuffed.
Because of this, motorway advertising is more likely to reinforce the positive perception of a brand and to have a positive effect on the consumer’s impression of it. Consumers are also more likely to be able to recall your advert, and more likely to take action from it. Motorway advertising is one of the fastest-growing sectors as the ads can be seen by hundreds of thousands of people at a different point on the UK motorway network.
Any call to action should be concise and clear of course, as people are often travelling at speed, they don’t have much time to see and read them. So make sure to get to the point with a clear message or brilliant image.
