Do you want to win your next holiday? Here is my weekly round-up of the best 2020 travel competitions.
I am a big advocate for entering holiday competitions to try to win a holiday. Over the past 18 months, I have won a trip to Barcelona, flights to Iceland and various other day trips. Winning holiday competitions are a great way to travel more without spending any money, and while you may not win them all (or any to start with!), it goes without saying, the more travel competitions you enter, the more chance you have.
On this page, I will round-up all the best holiday competitions I find on the internet, from city break competitions, UK holiday competitions to once in a lifetime holidays. They will all be opportunities to win a holiday, all you need to do is follow the instructions to enter and think positive thoughts.
Win a holiday competition tip: I find I have better chances with ‘effort competitions’ or ‘creative competitions’, this means competitions where you have to do more than just sign up for something for entry. The reason behind this is because fewer people enter as a lot of people cannot be bothered. The more effort you put in, the better your chance of winning.
Holiday competitions 2019:
The newest travel competitions will be at the top of the page and will be updated with new holiday competitions every other day, so be sure to bookmark this page and keep checking back.
Please note, due to my location, most competitions will be for UK applicants, however, check the competition terms and conditions to be sure.
May the odds be ever in your favour!

Comping tip: Comping, if done right, can be a really lucrative as well as fun hobby. While a big part of it is done to luck, you can also increase your chances of winning big if you know what to do.
If you are planning on making comping a hobby then I recommend investing in the Super Lucky Secrets book by Di Coke (currently available in paperback and E-book). Di has bagged over £300,000 of prizes by entering prize promotions – and now you can read a hundred of her tried and tested tips on being a successful winner.
The first prizes is a trip to the vibrant city of Porto for two people including flights, hotel accommodation, dinner and an exclusive port tasting at the award-winning Cockburn’s Lodge. For the second prize, there are 24 bottles of Cockburn’s Quinta dos Canais Vintage Port up for grabs, and for the third, there are 5,000 bars of 35g Green & Black’s Organic Chocolate to be won. Competition closes January 12th 2020.
Travel competition tip: A lot of competitions will ask you to sign up for their newsletter in order to be in with a chance of winning. To combat your inbox being filled with emails, create a new email just for comping, this way all emails will be in there and not your main email.
Remember to check back weekly for new travel competitions! If you do win a holiday which you have found through a travel competition on this page then I would love to know. Please be sure to send me a tweet at @yokomeshiuk so I can find out all about your win and next adventure.
