You Can Travel the World for Free — If You're Willing to Do It With a Stranger
Travel lovers are usually up for just about any adventure that comes their way. But one tour company is hoping to take that “up for anything” attitude one step further by giving away a trip around the world filled with surprises and one major catch: The winner will have to travel with a total stranger.
TourRadar, the world’s largest online travel agency for multi-day tours, is seeking two complete strangers ready and willing to travel together on the trip of a lifetime as part of its Tour the World campaign.
Together, two willing participants who have never met before will travel across the globe and experience multi-day tours in five different countries across five different continents while sharing the journey on social media.
“Multi-day touring is the easiest way possible for any traveler to experience the world in a relatively short amount of time,” TourRadar’s chief marketing officer Michael Potscher said in a statement. “Through our Tour the World campaign, we are creating the ultimate trip of a lifetime for two strangers that will inspire others to engage in life-enriching experiences through multi-day touring.”
A professional film crew will follow the two winners and their worldwide adventures to create content for TourRadar's social media and marketing channels as well.
Beyond not knowing each other, the two chosen participants will also have no idea where they are going until their flights are booked. All they will know, TourRadar said, is that they will be traveling to five different continents and the trip will take approximately 50 to 60 days to complete. All airfare, accommodations, expenses, and meals will be covered.
To be considered for this epic journey, would-be travelers need to submit a two-minute-long video explaining why they should be chosen for the Tour the World experience by March 24th. Winners will be announced in April and the experience will begin in May. So, if you’re not afraid of stranger danger and you’re up for anything, now is most certainly your time to shine.
