Adventure travel firm awards a summer time getaway to one lucky Facebook fan.
Online PR News – 22-February-2011 – – The youth of North America have spent the past few months wrapped scarves and buried in snow, waiting for the ice to melt and the chance to leave the house without digging out their cars. With the end of winter nowhere in sight, it’s time to start making plans to enjoy summer.
Starting this February, Canadian travel company Beach Travellers will be offering one of its Facebook fans a free summer 2011 trip to Bali, Brazil, Costa Rica, or Thailand with their online “Hunt for the Golden Ticket” contest. The winner will receive a pair of sunglasses from Spy, clothing from skating line DC, and a free trip to the Beach Travellers’ destination of their choice.
Eager travelers can enter by “liking” Beach Travellers on Facebook, filling out a brief entry form, and giving an amazing answer to the question, “what’s most important to you while traveling?” They’ll then be entered in a draw, from which ten finalists will be selected. After sending in a photo and a write-up of why they should win, the public will vote on their favorite finalist and the winner will spend the summer du surf au costa rica, on the beach in Brazil, on exotic sejours thailande or exploring a whole new culture in Bali. “We’re trying to see who our audience is,” says Costa Rica guide Mitch Martin. The
Beach Travellers team hopes that the contest will help them learn more about their followers.
So which trip is the best choice? According to Mitch, Brazil is his hands-down winner. “I’m a surfer, so there has to be good surfing,” he says, citing the food and the language as other top motivation. “Plus, my best friend is the guide…I think it would be cool. I’ve always wanted to go to the Amazon.” Beach Travellers, which has just released a new Costa Rica surf camp video on their blog, offers amazing guide jobs for people with expertise in travel and an adventurous soul – and as a guide, Mitch loves showing
people Costa Rica and “seeing the looks on people’s faces when they learn how to surf.”
Contest entries will be accepted until early April, with the winner’s dream trip kicking off in the summer. And Mitch’s answer to the official contest question of “what’s most important to you while traveling?” Short and immediate. “Surfing. And food. And cheap beer.”
