Travelzoo Launches Nationwide Contest Celebrating the Best Stories Connecting Romance and Travel
NEW YORK/SAN FRANCISCO, May 2, 2017 – Global travel deals publisher Travelzoo® (NASDAQ: TZOO) today announced a contest searching for America’s best travel love story in partnership with Honeyfund, the popular wedding registry app. The #loveoftravel campaign will feature a contest for the best travel love story alongside expert travel tips, including the top destinations to meet that special someone and hidden gem honeymoon locations. The couple behind America’s favorite travel love story will win a romantic seven-day getaway to the breathtaking Hidden Hills Villas in Pecatu, Bali and a $1,500 Honeyfund gift card.
To win, couples are being asked to share their story of how travel has positively impacted their romantic relationship by uploading their favorite memories with the #loveoftravel hashtag through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or via the Travelzoo contest page. The search for the perfect love story runs through May 26. A panel of judges, including Honeyfund CEO Sara Margulis and Travelzoo senior editor Gabe Saglie, will pick their top stories for public vote.
"One in three Americans has proposed or been proposed to while traveling,” says Mike Stitt, Travelzoo's President of North America who proposed to his wife during a Travelzoo trip. "Through #loveoftravel, we’re hoping travel lovers will share those heartwarming and romantic stories with us. We delight in hearing how our exclusive travel offers are leading to life long memories in our members’ lives.”
Stitt continued, “The recent Travelzoo Summer 2017 Travel Trends Survey* found 53% of people have taken a trip to strengthen their relationship. With our #loveoftravel campaign we want to inspire people to take trips with their special someone that they will remember forever.”
“With wedding season in full swing, it’s the perfect time to catch the honeymoon bug,” says Sara Margulis. “Travelzoo’s #loveoftravel campaign embodies what Honeyfund is all about—romantic travel experiences! We are delighted to be helping the owners of America's best love story continue their story in Bali. Helping to create these stories and reinforce bonds of love, travel and romance is truly exciting for us and our customers.”
