Win £10,000 / $13,000 / €11,000 in luxury travel advertising!

Although international travel may be off the agenda for much of the world at present, here at A Luxury Travel Blog we continue to share new articles on a daily basis – often multiple times a day – which we hope continues to inspire you for when normality returns. Historically, travel has always been exceptionally resilient when faced with enormous adversity and the current pandemic, although arguably more testing than anything we’ve previously encountered, will be no exception. Travel will bounce back and our commitment and love for the industry is such that we will do whatever it takes to keep travel at the forefront of people’s minds for when the recovery happens. It’s one thing not to be able to travel, but for those of you reading who work in the travel industry, we recognise it’s a particularly difficult and testing time. Whether you’re a travel agent, a tour operator, a hotelier, the owner of a bar or restaurant, or involved in travel or hospitality in one of the many, many other roles that exist, we wish you all the best for a safe and swift recovery. For some, marketing budgets are hugely restricted (if indeed they exist at all) whilst, for many, it’s just all about survival. We want to do our bit to help where we can with the luxury travel industry and so we’re running a giveaway to win £10,000 (that’s $13,000 or €11,000) worth of luxury travel advertising here on A Luxury Travel Blog. This will be split between 20 winners (£500 each). It’s not a huge amount, but we hope it can make a difference. To enter, just go to your preferred social media channel from the options provided below and follow the directions you find on your chosen link.

Good luck!

  1. I clicked through on your Facebook link. Loads of shares and plenty of comments. You’ve created some buzz there.

  2. I have every confidence that the luxury travel industry will recover. This competition is a good idea to help the industry promote itself. My personal feeling is that once we have a vaccine(s) there will be a huge amount of pent-up demand for luxury travel. Wise businesses will be promoting themselves now, building on their brand reputations and keeping themselves in the consumer’s eye.

    1. Yes, Gerald… they do say that in times like these it is when you need to be advertising the most – so that you can emerge stronger than ever – but this situation I think has been particularly testing in that regard, simply because businesses don’t tend to have bottomless pits of money and, coupled with the length of the disruption being very hard to ascertain, I think it’s very hard to get it right. Once all this is over, we’ll see what worked and what didn’t (both for businesses and governments, etc.), but of course it’s easy to see what decisions are right and wrong with the benefit of hindsight. Hopefully our giveaway will give a number of luxury travel businesses the opportunity to keep ticking over with some marketing activity without a strain on their finances. You never know, if it looks like the problems are going to persist well into 2021, we might even consider repeating the exercise.

  3. In difficult times you have to give a bit, show some good will and be patient. Helping out your business colleagues now will hopefully help them to recover soon.

    1. Thank you, Suzy – I hope so. Problem is, we just don’t know how long all of this is going to continue. We’ll keep on trying to find innovative ways to help businesses as best we can for as long as the situation persists.

    2. I doubt that there will be a point when the travel industry says that things are back to normal. And I think that we’ll be looking at a very different luxury industry anyway.

      Travel addicts are desperate to get away. They’ll find ways of getting a vaccine shot and they’ll be the first to cross a border once it’s open.

      Nothing ever stays the same. Millions of us are ready to move on from Covid – 19. Hopefully things will improve sooner rather than later.
