Travel Guru

Become our Travel Guru and win first class travel around Europe!

Become our Travel Guru and win first class travel around Europe!

First of all, find a colleague. Friend, sister, husband – just make sure that they love travel as much as you do.

Because that’s the next thing that you’ll need – a love of travel. If you’re excited about going to new places, experiencing new customs or eating food in foreign places, you’re on your way to becoming a Travel Guru.

Embrace that travel bug and pick up your smartphone or your video camera: we want the two of you to film a short demonstration of how much you love travel. In 30 seconds or less, we want to see fun and creativity. We want to know where you’ve been. We want to know where you haven’t been. We want to know where you want to be.

Whatever your video says about the pair of you, it’s got to say ‘WE LOVE TRAVEL’.

If you’re going to be a Travel Guru, you’ll have to be able to write a little bit too. That’s so you can blog for us, as you enjoy your prize of travelling first-class across Europe’s railways thanks to our friends at Rail Europe. 250-500 words on your favourite travel experience are all you need to send in to us, along with the vid. Do that, and you’ll be entitled to £5 of e-vouchers each!

The community will be voting on your efforts until the cut-off point where the top ten most popular videos will be put through to a panel of industry experts. They’ll whittle the ten down to the top four. If you’re in the top four – well done! You’re ready for our final, fiendishly fun challenge.

The four pairs of finalists will be sent dashing across the UK, completing our challenges – some unusual, some ingenious, most of them silly. However, complete them all, and you’re the biggest hit with the online voters, Travel Guru could be you.

You’ll be onto the Eurostar on your way to Paris for a night’s stay in a hotel (you’ll have a night’s stay on your way back home too), before embarking on your one-month travel to countries such as Italy, Czech Republic and Germany. All we ask is that you send us some fascinating blog content from your destinations.

That is Travel Guru. If you feel sufficiently enlightened, let’s see how much you love travel!
