Travel Contest Alert: Selfies are Good for Something, Like Winning a Trip to Croatia

Where: Croatia
June 18, 2014 at 8:42 AM | by | Comments (0)

Love them or hate them selfies are here to stay, so go ahead and use them to your advantage—like to score a free trip over to Croatia.

The country’s tourism board is taking advantage of our social media narcissism, and they’re rewarding one lucky person with a trip to the country. The rules seem pretty simple; basically you need to take and share a selfie using the hashtags #lovecroatia or #sharecroatia. After that a free trip might just be yours, as they’re giving away round-trip airfare and a 7-night stay along the country’s picturesque coast.

JetBlue's All-You-Can-Jet Pass is Back! But There's a Catch...

May 15, 2014 at 12:14 PM | by | Comments (0)

Without a doubt, one of the best modern airline promotions was JetBlue's All-You-Can-Jet Pass, which existed in 2009 and 2010 to allow purchasers to enjoy unlimited JetBlue flights for one month.

The passes were so popular and the resulting press and experiences so impressive that JetBlue brought back reduced versions of the pass in more recent years (BluePass and GoPacks), but the original generous AYCJ Pass has been retired.

Until now.

Play Pilot and Win Free British Airways Flights (Again!)

May 8, 2014 at 3:20 PM | by | Comments (0)

How badly do you want to win free airline tickets? Perhaps bad enough to wait in a line during your commute and bite your lip while flying a British Airways Boeing 777 simulator to several BA tropical destinations? Hopefully you've answered "of course," because that's exactly what's in store for intrepid travelers heading through London's Victoria Station this week.

The promotion, which gives away an unbelievable amount of free flights, returns after a successful run in early 2013, which we wrote about then:

It’s not a state of the art simulator, of course. This is more the kind you’d see in an arcade game. Every day this week, it’ll be loaded with a different airport approach, and your job is to land the plane. That alone is fun enough. But here’s the best bit: every 15 minutes, the person with the highest score in those 15 minutes will win a pair of flights to the airport in question. Yes – they’re giving away 60 flights a day. This is inspired.

Travel Contest Alert: Be One of the First Inside the Reopened Washington Monument

April 9, 2014 at 1:06 PM | by | Comments (0)

You'd think, with Instagram celebrating its fourth birthday this year, that the limits of intriguing new accounts would be stretched. Alas, we still find new and interesting people to follow, and one such account is @usinterior. It's actually the official account of the US Department of the Interior.

They've been active on the app for nearly two years, but only now are they taking the step to get interactive, announcing a contest to join in their first Insta-Meet for the reopening of the Washington Monument on May 12. You see, the monument closed after a 5.8-magnitude earthquake shook the DC area in 2011. This caused cracks near the top of the monument, closing it indefinitely...or at least until May 12.

The opportunity to be among the first back into the national landmark sounds awesome, but there is a major catch:

Safety May Be the Last Thing on Your Mind with Air New Zealand's New Bikini-Filled Safety Video

February 13, 2014 at 10:29 AM | by | Comments (0)

When it comes to in-flight safety, the last thing that probably comes to mind is a bevy of bronzed swimsuit babes frolicking on the beach. If you're Air New Zealand, however, that combination makes perfect sense. And, seeing as how the airline has a strong history of creative safety videos, it makes even more sense.

Using swimsuit models can be considered gratuitous, but this time there's pretty good reason for the exposed skin. The Kiwi airline has partnered with both Sports Illustrated and the Cook Islands to bring us this season's newest pre-take-off demonstration, Safety in Paradise.

Air New Zealand actually celebrates 40 years of flying to the Cook Islands, while SI celebrates its 50th year of showcasing the newest bikini fashion in tropical locations.

February 10, 2014 at 10:06 AM | by | Comments (0)

By now you've endured the theatrical Opening Ceremonies and moved on to watching the downhill skiing and figure skating events of the Sochi Winter Games, but Frontier has given us even more reason to cheer on our own athletes: cheap airplane tickets!

For each gold medal Team USA takes home, Frontier will translate that to a 1% savings in airfare for a ride on one of the 'fuzzy woodland-creatured' planes the LCC flies. With a total of 90 medals for which our team is contending, the odds are good that USA's athletes will benefit budget-conscious travelers much more than 1% off in the coming events.
