I ran a short contest and was extremely pleased with the results.
The giveaway: Two sets of (2) $100 Visa gift cards.
To enter readers had to offer a travel tip. The full comments section, as a result, is well worth a read.
I selected two readers that submitted tips at random to be the winners. And here they are.
The first winner is Elizabeth:
Make sure to pad extra time for connections between domestic and International flights, no matter how short that domestic flight will be. This is especially true when there are a limited number of International flights to your destination. Any delay could make you lose more than a full day at your destination.
The second winner is Sarah C:
Bring a pen! It sounds so simple but I recently forgot one on a flight to SXM and had to borrow one from a car rental counter to fill out immigration forms.
I’ll be in touch with both today to award the prizes.
And thanks to everyone who participated, I plan to highlight some of the best tips in the coming days along with some additional suggestions for making your travel better and go more smoothly.
