Holidays that move you

Customer Competition 2016

We have a monthly competition for the best trip story, video or photos received each month, with a prize of a voucher worth £250 to be used against a Skedaddle holiday. At the end of the year we'll announce the overall winner, who will win £1000 to spend on a Skedaddle holiday of their choice.

Story/travelogue wise we are looking for just a few hundred words rather than 'War and Peace' length epics. Photos and video - we want those that give a flavour of your time away and sum up the holiday. The world is your oyster here and we always love receiving a variety of entries each year,  time to get those creative juices flowing...

February - Alastair Harrison - Costa Rica - Ruta de los Volcanes

Our second winner of the year goes to another exotic entry inspired by the tropical wonderland of Costa Rica. With our road holiday in mind and camera in tow, Alastair was left spoilt for choice with the landscapes and wildlife available and sent us in some amazing photos from his trip. 

March - Megan Hassett - Colombia - Emerald Mountains

Another exotic destination inspiring our Skedaddlers, this time the turn of our Guilin and Guangxi tour in China! Big thanks to Trevor Peake for his awesome write up of our adventure trip in Asia - a definate bucket experience.

August - Jill Buzzard - Italy - Grand Traverse

Our newest iconic journey in Italy, The Grand Traverse, is the inspiration for our August competition winner Jill Buzzard. Having taken to her tandem with husband in tow, we felt her write up gave an incredible flavour and unique insight into taking on a 1,000 mile challenge.

Our first autumn winner goes to a very socially-inspired entry by leisure cyclist William Steinmetz, who took to two wheels with his wife to explore the historic chateaux of the Loire in France.

It's always great to see Skedaddlers getting creative and this pedalling duo have done just that! Having completed the ultimate UK cycling feat, LEJOG, they commemorated their impressive journey with a fantastic poem!

November - Denise D'Abadie - Chile & Argentina - The Lake District

We love seeing more and more Skedaddlers enjoying the impressive cycling sights of South America! Denise loved our holiday in Chile and Argentina so much that she wrote a series of blogs, which give an incredible insight into our adventure here.

Three times competition winner, Nigel Rees, came back for more and impressed us once again with his lovely write up of our road holiday based on the stunning Italian island of Sardinia - a cracking finish to our entries for 2017!
