{CLOSED} Win $1000 with Skyscanner! #1kvsGlobe

#1kvsglobe skyscanner competition

Where would you travel if you suddenly had $1,000 to spend on flights and hotels? Start thinking about it, because one Girl vs Globe fan soon will!

I know you love travel as much as I do, so I’ve teamed up with Skyscanner to bring one of my readers the opportunity to plan the journey of their dreams. Yes, that person could easily be YOU.

How To Enter #1kvsGlobe

To get you excited about the awesome trip you could go on, I’ve made it a fun little challenge. To enter #1kvsGlobe, I want you to figure out how many continents you can fly to with $1,000.

How do you do that? Here are the rules…

  1. Download the Skyscanner app and register. You can use your email or Facebook, and it takes less than 30 seconds.
  2. Once you’re logged in, set your currency to US dollar. You can easily do this by clicking the cogwheel in the upper right hand side of the app homepage.
  3. Put in your hometown and search to “Everywhere”. For dates use December 2016 or January 2017 – essentially, just sit back and make some fun Christmas or New Years plans!
  4. Then find flights to as many continents as possible for $1,000, for one person. The more continents you can get to for $1,000, the better. The countries you visit on each continent are completely up to you, but snap up those cheap flights! Don’t worry about accommodation.
  5. Post a photo on Instagram or Facebook and describe your route in it. You can use any photo – from travel pics to selfies or screenshots from the Skyscanner app.
  6. In the caption, tell me how many continents you can get to for $1,000 and what your destinations are. Most importantly though, tell me who you’d like to take on this trip with you and why, and tag them in your post. Be creative and have fun with it! 🙂
  7. Don’t forget to use #1kvsGlobe, and tag & follow @skyscanner and @girlvsglobe (on Instagram) OR Skyscanner and Girl vs Globe (on Facebook) in your image. Please make sure your Instagram profile and/or Facebook post is not private to make sure I can actually see it.
  8. Optional: Follow @girlsvsglobe – my new Instagram account where I feature my fellow female travellers. You don’t have to do this at all, but it would make my day if you did.

You have until September 28, 2016 at 12am (midnight) GMT to enter. The contest is open worldwide. You can read the terms and conditions here.

I’d prefer if you entered on Instagram because I find the platform more fun, but entering on Facebook will not hurt your chances of winning in any way. There’s only one entry per person, but feel free to post on both Facebook and Instagram.

You must follow Skyscanner and Girl vs Globe (or our Facebook pages if that’s where you’re entering), otherwise your entry will be invalid.

To use the Skyscanner app as effectively as possible and increase your chances of winning, check out my post on how to find the cheapest flights. It has a step-by-step guide, complete with screenshots and useful tips!

How Will I Choose the Winner?

I hate popularity contests, so I am not about to put you through one! It doesn’t matter how many followers you have – the winner will be chosen based on their creativity alone.

To maximise your chances of winning, make sure you hit up as many continents (and countries) as possible. Get creative with who you’d like to take on this trip and why. Make sure you tag them in your post, too.

As I just mentioned, I’ve written a whole post on how to find the cheapest flights. I highly recommend you read it because it will help you get the best deals – and not just for the purpose of this competition!

I can’t wait to read through all your entries. May the odds be ever in your favour, and let the games begin!

    Question- In your post it says “you have until September 28th to enter” however, in your terms in conditions it says: Entries will be accepted from 00:00 on 29th September 2015 (the “Commencement Date”) to 23:59 on 6th October 2015 (the “Closing Date”). Can you please clarify?

    • Thanks for spotting that error Jacqueline, and sorry for the confusion! The correct end date is 28th September 2016, midnight GMT 🙂

      • Jacqueline Park

        great, thank you for the clarification, excited to enter 🙂 love love your blog btw!

  • is it open for all people or just UK residents or?

  • Is this contest for men and women? I have traveled often using Skyscanner. I travel often with my gf if that helps. lol

  • Russell

    Question: Does the travel time has to be Dec-Jan or can it be other times also? Prices are not really check during Christmas 🙂

    • Use those dates for the contest, but if you win you can use any dates that suit you 🙂

      • Russell

        Cool. I made up an itinerary but wasn’t happy with it as I wanted to visit more continents (for the contest). I will come up with a better one and enter by tomorrow 🙂

    • Four days left to enter by the way!! 🙂

  • Jen Rawson @ Pretty Little Gru

    Is it open to US residents only?

  • TheClassyPanda

    One-way flights or round trip?

  • Marie Mekosh

    Do dates matter? Is it just to see as many cheap flights as you can, or does it have to be chronological? (For example, could I use the December 15 price for city 1 to city 2, and the December 13 price for city 2 to city 3, even though it’s not in chronological order?) Thank you!

    • That’s fine Marie, just go for it 🙂

      • Marie Mekosh

        Sorry to ask in two places 😉 Thank you for your response! I just entered!

  • Hi Sabina,

    I just came across this contest from a random facebook group. I know you said September 28… but I’m not sure for what timezeone? I’ve made it to all 7 continents with $1000 on skyscanner (Antarctica by way of Australia). I’m going to still post my entry on @thenextsomewhere so if you see it, it’s not some random! Hoping you’ll still qualify this entry! 😀 And thanks in advance!!!

  • Martyna

    Hi Sabina! I did enter the contest, but I am just a bit confused about one of the points in the terms&conditions, namely “9. In order to enter the Promotion, you should complete a survey and then submit your contact e-mail address.” what about survey, what about e-mail address? 🙂

    thanks in advance!

    • Hi Sabina! To add to Martyna’s comment, in the terms and conditions it says that the winner will be contacted by email within 30 days… but I personally didn’t submit my e-mail address to anyone? I thought you could consider the registration on the skyscanner app as a “survey” but I wonder how you can link someone’s facebook or instagram account to that registration… Thank you!

  • Danielle Markley

    When will the winner be announced?! I’m dying with excitement ?

  • My friend recommended to read your blog. Cool and informative articles. I often travel around the world, so I always try to stay informed. Thanks for sharing
