Blogger Challenge, , The LowCost Traveler


20th October, 2010

Tickets are booked, bags are packed and easyJet is set to launch its first 15 Hour Blogger Challenge to four secret destinations.

Each week throughout October a prominent travel blogger will fly with easyJet to an undisclosed location within Europe to take on the challenge of visiting as much of the city as possible - within a 15 hour timeframe and on a limited budget.

To complete the challenge each blogger will receive:

- One return ticket to the destination

- £100 spending money

- An easyJet destination guide for the secret city

- Overnight accommodation

Each blogger’s journey can be followed on Twitter and Foursquare and will be captured on camera and uploaded onto YouTube and Facebook with a link to their travel blog outlining the destination and experience.

Once all four journeys are complete it will be up to the easyJet Facebook community to vote for the trip they feel best captures the secret destination in terms of uniqueness, value for money and entertainment within the boundaries set. All those who cast a vote will be in with a chance of winning a short break to the featured winning city!

The four travel bloggers are -

1. Kash Bhattacharya from Europe Budget Guide (http://www.europebudgetguide.com/) (http://twitter.com/budgettraveller)

2. Paul Smith from Twitchhiker (http://twitchhiker.com/) (http://twitter.com/twitchhiker)

3. Karen Bryan from Europe a la Carte (http://www.europealacarte.co.uk/blog/) (http://twitter.com/karenbryan)

4. Matt Preston from Travel With A Mate (http://www.travelwithamate.com/) (http://twitter.com/travelwithamate)

You can also follow the challenges right here on Facebook or on Twitter http://www.twitter.com/easyjet. Also, look out for the feature articles in the November and December issues of the easyJet Traveller Inflight magazine.

So, the big question… What European destinations should we send our bloggers to?
