Holidays that move you

Customer Competition 2018

Pride yourself on your holiday snaps? Have an inspiring story to share about the experiences encountered along the way? Or maybe you have created a video about your holiday? No matter how big or small, we want to hear from you and give you a chance to save on your next trip!

What we’re looking for?

We welcome all entries, but for guidance, we’re looking for something that gives a flavour of your cycling holiday with us. Make sure your entry gives a great impression, sums up the holiday and would inspire others to join us too. If you’re sending us photos, don’t forget to accompany them with a short testimonial, so we can share them appropriately. Time to get creative!

Need a little inspiration? Check out last year’s winning entries.

What’s the prize?

All entries* - Skedaddle headwear.

Monthly prize - £250 worth of Skedaddle vouchers.

End of year prize - An additional £1000 worth of Skedaddle vouchers.

All monthly prize winners will be entered into our final prize draw at the end of the year… for the overall winner, that’s practically enough vouchers to treat yourself to a free Skedaddle holiday!
