Travel-related enterprises host various travel contests and deals to let the average Joe land a chance to travel for free. (And such ‘enterprises’ indeed, equal a huge blanket term for the countless agencies, not to mention the industry’s sub-categories – accommodation, tech, media and so on.) From 2018 onwards, the Talk Travel App team has decided to publish a roundup of various travel contests, sweepstakes, giveaways and competitions where trips are given as prizes. Talk about shortcuts to saving money while globetrotting. 😉
Conde Nast Traveler offers a luxurious holiday to Qatar, a unique destination in the gulf. Entry is questionnaire-based, especially on your knowledge of this (photo) particular location. Deadline is 31 Jan. 2018 to enter. The dates when you have to book the prize (holiday to Qatar) are between June and used by Sept. 2018.
