If I win…

  • You may book a minimum of one complete route and a maximum of 4
  • Your complete trip of choice must not exceed the total €4,000, or €5,000 prize fund if you shared the competition on Facebook

Can I share my dream trip?

Yes! You can share your prize with up to 8 guests, on the condition that you all have identical travel itineraries and it is a round-trip for all those involved. You have to be over 18 to participate but there is no age limit for anyone you choose to bring along.
