***THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR ENTRIES ***
The winner was Jacquie with her tip: ‘Take a small compass with you if travelling to New York or any big city, easier to read a map and navigate around, you also dont have to be fiddling with you phone app and risk getting it stolen.’
Youtravel.com have really taken me by surprise. I noticed them at the beginning on the year when they launched their rather quirky new website (I heard mention of endless days spent locked in a darkened room with packs of crayons), and since then they’ve been popping up all over the place.
I like their style – they’re fresh and funky and focused on the hotel (it’s how they started off – selling hotels to the travel industry) so you can find your perfect hotel first (with real reviews and videos from real people to help you), and then sort the travel afterwards.
But now, dearest reader, this funky bunch of travel dudes need our help. I’m after some top tips and there’s a little something in it for you too:
We need your best holiday tips! How would you help a family book their holiday? What top tips have you got that you can share about getting the best from your trip?
Is it best to book a night flight? Book last minute? A year in advance? How do you keep the kids happy on the journey, and what are your best tips for enjoying your hotel and resort? I know you know all the answers, so come on, cough up. You can either leave your tips below, or it you’re a tweeter (twitterer?) tweet me and @youtravel_com with your top tips using the hashtag #youtraveltips to be in with a chance to win.
To pay you back for all your hard work, the top tipper will win a Lonely Planet Guidebook of their choice to assist them on their next adventure.
