Rail Europe Announces ‘My Dream Itinerary’ Agent Contest
Rail Europe has announced details of its new ‘My Dream
Itinerary’ contest for travel agents: create an ideal itinerary using the new Eurail Global Pass for a chance to win a ‘dream’
rail vacation. Among the four final itineraries chosen, one will be voted the
best overall itinerary and become the actual mini-FAM for the four winning
travel agents. Entry submission is 1-22MAY, 2019.
Entry must include at least
three countries and five different days of travel in participating Eurail
Global Pass countries. Agents must also select which category of traveller the
itinerary is meant for and may submit a different itinerary for each of the
four categories. They may only be a finalist in one category.
entries will be judged from 23MAY to 2JUN, 2019 based on originality,
creativity, popularity, ease of use in training webinar, and reason for the
submission. Four finalists will be chosen to move on to the voting phase to
take place 3-28JUN, 2019. Each of the four finalists will be provided the
opportunity to co-present their itinerary in a webinar for their peers. The
finalists’ itineraries also will be posted on the contest site website, www.raileurope-mydreamitinerary.com for
voting to select the best overall itinerary. Voting will be open to the travel
trade, consumers, friends, and family. One vote per person per day is allowed
and is subject to registration.
Prizes In addition
to co-presenting their itineraries in a Rail Europe webinar, the four
“My Dream Itinerary” finalists will each receive a spot on the all-expense paid
mini FAM to Europe (estimated value of $5,000) and a leather Tech Wallet from
Mark and Graham (estimated value of $149). The one “My Dream Itinerary” Grand Prize winner also gets
to have their itinerary used for the mini FAM and a two-piece set of
monogrammed luggage in their choice of luggage colour from Mark and Graham
(estimated value of $490).
