If anyone tells you they don’t like travelling, there’s a 99% chance they’re a sociopath with no right to live on this earth. In fact, I’d go as far as to put them in the naughty corner with people who request a plastic straw with their vodka lime and soda. Awful specimens.
My point is, travelling is the best thing anyone can do. When people are on their death beds it’s not earlier marriages, more kids and better careers they’re wishing they had, but it’s seeing more of the world. Every dang time.
Obviously travelling comes at a cost, quite literally, with money more often than not being the main hurdle. So while it pains me to share this information with you – namely because it means my chances of winning will become slimmer – I feel it’s my civic duty. Trip.com, together with airline Scoot, are currently running a competition to win flights for an entire damn year. That’s wild and could change your life.ENTER HERE
Let’s get down to the fine print. Free flights for a year translates to 12 return economy tickets (or 6 return economy tickets for you and a mate) to anywhere on the Scoot global network (over 64 global destinations), worth up to $9,999. Taxes and 20kg of baggage included. Entries open October 15 and close November 12, 2019.
What do you have to do? Sign up as a member HERE, which, if you’re a lover of the globe and all it offers is pretty damn great regardless of prize. As one of the leading online travel agencies in the world, Trip.com has over 2 million individual flight routes for you to compare when booking your next holiday, as well as a hella extensive hotel, transport and experience network at your disposal.
There’s also no credit card or booking fees, you earn ‘TripCoins’ (via their TripPLUS rewards program) to put towards your next trip and have access to support 24 hours a day – it’s an online travel agency, after all.
I’m struggling with even the thought of winning this prize. If you’re trying to stop talking about that sandwich you had that one time in Barthelona, imagine trying to keep this year-long experience down the windpipe.Image: iStock / extravagantni
