How could we win a family trip? We would love to have a trip we will never forget! -Amanda, Québec
A | Win a family trip
It’s hard for lots of us to budget family trips, especially knock-your-socks-off fabulous, weeklong, international ones. While some of us save all year for one big blow-out family vacation, others among us take several shorter and more local trips. Entering travel contests isn’t a guarantee of winning them, of course, but…well, just look at how many people consistently play the lottery. As the ad says, you can’t win if you can’t play (I’d add that you probably still won’t win, but that’s another story).
The only thing better than a vacation is a free vacation, am I right? I’d never recommend entering travel contests in lieu of saving up for a family vacation: You can do both, though. Both Ciao Bambino and The Vacation Gals are currently partnering with Sony – as are some other travel sites – to give away a grand prize of a $10,000 dream vacation, plus Sony Reader Pocket Editions. Now, a $10,000 dream vacation is quite an amazing travel prize to win, but only there’s only one winner. Keep this in mind when you enter travel contest; they should be free to enter and not take up too much of your time.
I just entered “win a trip” into Google, and founds several other vacation contests that are available at this time. It help to add the current year into the search term. Good luck!
