Win £1,000 to spend with your Travel Counsellor

As everyone knows, it’s the special people that make the special places. Whether that's the tour leader who led you around the Serengeti, the waiter who remembered your favourite table, the couple that you met in the hotel one evening and have been friends with ever since, or the person who created your dream trip perfectly suited to you.

If you have a person/people that helped to make a travel experience of yours special, we want to hear about it. Send us your short stories (no more than 100 words) and accompanying photos about the people that have made your travel experiences special and you’ll be in with a chance of winning £1,000 to spend with your Travel Counsellor as well as featuring your story in our January campaign.

Please send your submissions to or tag Travel Counsellors and use the hashtag #TCSpecialPlaces on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. The competition will close on Wednesday 26th January at midday and we’ll announce the winner on Sunday 30th January.

All entries must include a story and accompanying image/images to be considered.

To give you some inspiration, we’ve included an example below from one of our Travel Counsellors.

We had the most fantastic trip to Saint Lucia. So much so that one couple became great friends and we have travelled with them back to Saint Lucia last October and also to Barbados in March 2020. We live in Devon and they live near Newcastle so had it not been for this trip, we would never have met
