Happy December & Happy Thursday!

This Thursday’s ‘Featured Offers’ takes a quick look at the best of the travel related advent and Christmas competitions.

Over the past few years, it seems to have become a festive feature for the internet to throw daily advent competitions at us through December. Some of these contests potentially offer considerably more than the chocolate versions on our shelves though, so are definitely worth entering! With flights, points and travel accessories up for grabs, here are the advent competitions I’ve been keeping an eye on.

Inside Flyer

The guys over at Inside Flyer are running a daily contest throughout December, with prizes from a range of travel sponsors including Air Canada, Curve & Hertz.

You can enter once each, with a different prize on offer. Entry requires you to submit your email for their fortnightly newsletter.

Norwegian Reward

Norwegian Air’s Advent competition consists of both a daily competition, and a ‘grand draw’ for which you collect tickets each time you enter.

With reward points, special offers and discounts and flights up for grabs, this one is worth a quick click!

Note that you will need a Norwegian Rewards login to enter this competition.


I’ve just discovered this one, and there are some serious prizes to be won from travel site ‘Travelzoo’

The grand prize is a 5 star holiday to Mauritius, but day’s 1-3 also included a holiday to Crete and a break in Krakow.

Entry is via an email form, and additional entries can be gained if you refer someone else who enters (On that note, make sure you use our link!!!)


Travel comparison site Kayak is also running a competition throughout December, with travel related prizes up for grabs.

There is no comprehensive information about the upcoming prizes, so a real lucky dip in terms of whether it’s great prize or a luggage tag (like yesterday!)


A helpful summary from Brightsun:

“Prizes include entry into the grand draw to win a 5 night half board holiday to Kenya courtesy of PrideInn Paradise Beach Resort and Qatar Airways. You can also win a pair of flights every week courtesy of Air India, Oman Air, Alitalia and Air France. Other prizes include Premier League football tickets, Gaucho restaurant vouchers, Amazon All-New Fire HD 8 Tablet, White Company amenity kits and pyjamas, department store shopping vouchers, cinema vouchers, champagne, model airplanes, and other travel related goodies…..”

Again this one is by email form. Today’s entry also offered me a £10 discount with Etihad – so there may be discounts on future days too.


Lastly – Exodus’s ADVENT-ure calendar is more of a mixed bag. Their 24 windows have offers, some giveways and some features.

And finally, a free points bonus: easy 250 Nectar Points, for sharing your email with Argos here.
