Each week we’ll be updating this list with any new finds, so make sure you check in regularly… good luck!
The Telegraph has various weekly competitions, including photography, travel writing, and a competition where you can send in your best travel tips (no more than 150 words).
Are you a cheese lover? Café Rouge has just opened the Cheese Suite in London, where guests can enjoy the cheese-themed decor, board games, soap and art, not to mention stacks of -you guessed it- cheese. The prize also includes a £50 gift card for a meal for two people so you can eat as much cheese as possible.
The British Virgin Islands Tourist Board want to take you an a guest to a Valley Trunk private villa, in a 19-acre private estate stretching along the coast of the island. You will spend 7 nights in sheer luxury, with all your meals and drinks in the villa included, cooked by a private French chef. If you don’t feel like the short stroll to the beach, don’t panic- there’s an infinity pool, too. Plus, the 68ft yacht, Xanadu, will take you island-hopping when you’re not lounging in the home cinema or peering down through a glass-bottomed kayak.
Naples, Sorrento, the Almalfi Coast- these are just some of the cultural hubs you can hope to explore with this prize. Riviera Travel is offering 7 nights, on a B&B basis in the luxury Hotel La Vue D’Or, as well as return flights from a selection of airports and tours around some of the most beautiful areas of Italy.
Anyone who knows me at all will know I have a slight obsession with sloths, and therefore the top destination on my travel bucket list is Costa Rica. Rainforest, jungle and beach combine to make Costa Rica the perfect place to both relax and explore. With this competition, you could win a week-long holiday with all transport and accommodation included, on a B&B basis. Also, you and your guest would receive personalised backpacks courtesy of Gandy’s travel clothing. All you have to do is answer one question- it might be worth looking it up!
This trip starts with 3 nights in Kuala Lumpur, where you will stay in the palatial Hotel Majestic on a B&B basis. You will also receive afternoon tea here and can spend your days exploring the amazing street food scene. Then it’s 3 nights in the Tanjong Jara Resort in Terengganu, where you can enjoy spa treatments and 2 pools. Perhaps even venture out to the turtle hatchery island Tenggol. The icing on the cake? Return business class flights with Malaysia Airlines.
This prize is worth over £2700 and it’s not hard to see why. Lonely Planet will fly you and a guest from London to Salzburg, where a private transfer will take you to the 4-star Grossarler Hof, a chalet-style hotel you will stay in on a half-board basis. You’ll have spa treatments in the hotel and bicycle hire, so you can explore the panoramic views of the Austrian Alps.
Qatar airways and Brightsun Travel are offering you a pair of return economy flights to Vietnam, so you can plan your ideal trip without the fuss (or cost!) of the flights. And if you are checking out Vietnam, take a look at where we stayed when we visited.
Visit Jersey’s current competition could see you and a guest staying in Jersey for the weekend, with British Airways flights and accommodation at the Jersey Heritage Archirondel Tower included. Originally built in 1792, the tower was recently refurbished to accommodate up to 4 people. It spans 4 levels, including the roof terrace which boasts amazing views of the bay.
This competition has to be seen to be believed! With so many extras and activities to enjoy whilst you’re there, Tourism Whilster will fly you and a guest to Vancouver, where you will stay for 6 nights. The competition also includes a $500 gift voucher, should you wish to extend your stay or upgrade, or perhaps use it for a future trip.
