By News Creatives Authors , in Business , at October 31, 2021

As the holidays approach, giving the gift of travel is a great way to celebrate and make memories, especially considering the way the world of travel slowed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. What’s better than planning a dream vacation? Winning one for free. These 7 travel contests and sweepstakes will help you test your luck and experience the world again, perhaps without spending much along the way.

“Granfluencer” Beaches Resorts TikTok Sweepstakes

Get granny’s hips gyrating with this Beaches Resorts “granfluencer” TikTok sweepstakes. Between now and Nov. 11, creators can tap into the multi-generational travel trend by following and tagging @BeachesResorts on TikTok and then posting a grandparent video on TikTok with the hashtag #BeachesGrandEscapes while doing something that will make them go viral.

The winner will receive a TikTok tutorial from a social media influencer plus one of Beaches’ new GrandEscapes packages including a 6-day, 5-night stay at any Beaches Resort property in Jamaica or the Turks & Caicos. The package includes a family photo shoot plus other activities like spa or meal experiences.

Score a free upgrade with Ethiopian Airlines

Passengers that book a ticket with the airline between now and Nov. 25 will be automatically entered in a weekly raffle drawing for a complimentary business class upgrade on their first flight segment departing the United States. The ticket must be for travel between now and Dec. 12 or between Jan. 9 and April 30.

There is no registration necessary, but the ticket must be booked directly with Ethiopian and not via a third party. As the airline with the largest fleet and carrying the most passengers in Africa, Ethiopian Airlines has an extensive route network, and a flat-bed seat on a long flight to Addis Ababa will certainly get the trip off to a good start.

Giveaways from Etihad Airways for “Year of the 50th”

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the United Arab Emirates, Etihad is continuing with its year of giveaways including free tickets and discounts to different Abu Dhabi experiences. The free-to-enter offer continues until the end of the year and is awarding 50,000 prizes just for signing up. The Emirati capital is a growing cultural destination with popular sites including a branch of the Louvre museum and Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

Reunite in Reykjavik with a loved one, for free

Share a brief explanation of why you want to reunite with friends or family from the United Kingdom during a getaway in Iceland, and you might win a free trip to the world’s northernmost capital. Entries are due by Nov. 26. The entry must include a short description of why you want to meet up with particular people after so long apart and include a photo.

Three winning pairs of US-UK entrants will receive free flights from Icelandair, a three-night hotel stay and 72-hour Reykjavik City Card to gain access to various attractions. Not so fast though: the public will vote on the winning pairs so make the entry particularly emotional and exciting to earn their vote of confidence.

“I Know What You Did Last Summer” Contiki getaway

Contiki (a travel brand for 18-35 year olds) is running a mystery thriller-themed trip based on the Amazon Prime program “I Know What You Did Last Summer.” The prize is a trip to Hawaii, which is fitting since the show follows a mysterious group of teenagers living in Hawaii and is based on a 1970s novel of the same name. The trip will balance fun activities like yoga, luaus by the sea, pool parties and island tours with mystery-themed adventures. Enter by Nov. 15 (no purchase necessary) when three lucky winners will be chosen.

Aruba’s Honeymoon First Sweepstakes

For those who had their honeymoons postponed due to Covid-19 disruptions, Aruba wants to make amends offering couples an upcoming nuptial celebration for free. Between now and Nov. 15, couples can enter to win the honeymoon they have been waiting for over the past year. It includes a five-day and four-night getaway to one of two resorts: Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort or Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort.
