Update: Good news, we loved the entries coming in. We’ve extended the contest by a week to allow everyone who could not participate earlier to be a part of this contest! Contest now open till 20-Aug-2016.
This year, we celebrate 5 years of being us. Being us means to be able to help you with your travels, in ways and means no one else could. So we tell you about the way you could travel in style without breaking the bank. First Class travel does not really mean you need to have a six figure bank balance. You can do it with much less, by coming back here time after time, to start.
I’d like to thank you for your support to us over a period of time. And feed your desire to travel some more. Or both. To this effect, we’re in the midst of running 5 weeks of contests, with 5 lovely prizes from our partners for all of you. Contests will start on Sunday 0000 India time, and close on 2359 India time on the coming Saturday. On Monday, we will announce the results of the giveaway. Sunday we announce the next prize as well! Our first winner already got his prizes, our second contest just got over, the and it’s time for the third one.
Week 3: 3 Prizes from Airbnb
One of the recent finds of my life has been Airbnb. I might have been living under a rock before, but hey, it is so easy to find a variety of accommodation on Airbnb to suit every pocket. Fathom this.
You could be living in a shared apartment in New York if you’re flying solo, at an artist’s home in Brooklyn at about $62 (INR 4135) per night
If you don’t want your privacy disturbed, and still want to be around with other folks who are your hosts, you could be getting a private apartment. How about one in London, where hotel prices are through the roof. Oh, this one comes with a view of the Thames!!
Not to say that you couldn’t have a whole home to yourselves. Love architecture? How about a Portugese Villa in Goa for your family of 6.
In a nutshell, Airbnb has an opportunity for all of us to be wholesome travellers, mingling with the locals and sharing their lives and experiences while also getting a piece of the local experience. After all, travel is not just about seeing monuments or museums, it is about people, right?
Sign up with Airbnb to be able to participate in this cool contest. You get a startup credit of INR 1000/USD 15 or equivalent in your local currency for use on your future travels. If you host, you get another INR 3000, Isn’t it lovely? If you’re already an Airbnb user, let’s tell you more about the contest.
To celebrate the 5 years of LiveFromALounge, Airbnb are offering 3 of you an opportunity to belong anywhere around the globe. You can live like a local in Greenland or Cape of Good Horn or anywhere in between. You can choose from palaces, villas, cottages, log cabins or just an apartment in the humble bumble of a city. It’s your choice about where you want to go, we are just helping you to live it up!
There will be 3 prizes from Airbnb, as under:
- INR 35,000 (~USD 525)
