It is impossible not to come across holiday sweepstakes and competitions, promising you a holiday of a lifetime for no money at all. Many of these holidays, however, come with various catches and are not as amazing as they are made out to be. However, every once in a while, there is an exception and you can really win something out of this world without an investment on your part. Let’s take a look at the 5 most amazing holidays ever won in a competition.
Oman is perhaps not the first place you would think of for a fantastic holiday destination. However, it is its very off the beaten track status that makes it so interesting. Additionally, Oman still has some of the real Oriental feeling that was popular during the Victorian days. The prize included flights and transfers, as well as accommodation in two different hotels, both of which offered a full suite with private balcony and beautiful views. The second hotel is a spa hotel, which includes a full treatment. Both hotels are offered on a bed and breakfast basis.
California is a beautiful state in the United States that has much to offer in terms of architecture, geography, culture, arts and fun. For this prize, contestants were allowed to choose their own hotel for their trip along Highway 1, up to a maximum of 10 different hotels and a maximum of $2,000. The prize included flights to and from California, the hotel stays and car rental. Additionally, all dinners are included, as are entry fees to various points of interest.
With this particular prize holiday, participants could win a roundtrip business class trip to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico for two, flying with Aeromexico. Additionally, the prize included a five night all inclusive accommodation at the Melia Cabo Real, in Los Cabos. Transfers were included. As Mexico is one of the most popular global tourist destinations, this really is an amazing win.
With the Dominica prize, the winner plus one guest could enjoy all flights to and from the romantic Caribbean islands. It also included a five night stay in a luxurious hotel, with all meals included. Additionally, winners could take part in two activities each and a spa treatment.
The Moroccan adventure includes flights to Morocco and a four night stay in a Fez hotel, the Palais Amani.
