Competitours Dates Announced for Summer 2013

My award booking partner Steve Belkin puts together Amazing Race-style trips called Competitours.

Are you one of those folks who watch ‘The Amazing Race’ and mutter to yourself- ‘I could do that’. You love the competitive travel and surprise destinations concept, but you don’t have 60 days to kill or you hate the drama queens teams or there are no auditions in your city.

You can see past coverage from Jaunted, JohnnyJet, and Gadling.

Competitours is a travel competition where up to 14 pairs of teams accomplish a series of challenges over a 9 day trip through 4 Western European countries. Winners pick up a prize of up to $9000. Great for parent/child bonding, best friends, and couples.

The 2013 trip is scheduled for July 5-14 and costs $2950 for East Coast airfare, lodging, 3 out of 8 day challenge costs, and cash prize pool. And you can reduce the cost by booking airfare with miles.

As I say, I have no financial interest in Competitours but my award booking partner Steve does. I do think it will be of interest to some readers so wanted to pass it along.
