Travel contests: you can’t win if you don’t play


I’m a firm believer of the “you can’t win if you don’t play” theory of contests – and life. So here’s a round-up of some of the travel-related contests that have landed in my inbox.

Same-sex marriages are about to become legal in New Zealand and Air New Zealand is marking the occasion by holding an in-flight wedding for one lucky Kiwi couple, with a honeymoon in Palm Springs. Enter by July 26, 2013 here.

(Here’s my story about the first-ever, same-sex, inflight weddings, which took place on an SAS flight back in December, 2010.)

To celebrate the launch of non-stop service to Taipei, Taiwan, Hawaiian Airlines is giving Facebook fans a chance to win 140,000 HawaiianMiles by taking the Hawaiian Airlines Street Eats quiz. The contest ends: July 31, 2013.

Finally (for now): prizes in a Radisson Blu contest that runs through August 15, 2013 include 30 free nights in a variety of Radisson Blu hotels around the world and 360,000 miles in Lufthansa’s Miles & More program which must be redeemed for two (2) Lufthansa Economy Class Round the World Flight Award Tickets.

You’ll need to write a very short essay about your dream destination, which will be judged on creativity and clarity. Details here.

Good luck!
