Virgin Atlantic Is Giving Away Free Flights to St. Lucia to Women With This Name
Looking for a free Caribbean vacation? You better have the right name.
Virgin Holidays has announced a competition giving any woman named Lucy (or Lucia) a chance to win a free flight to the Caribbean island of St. Lucia.
In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, the company is celebrating the only country to be named after a woman by offering four pairs of round-trip economy class Virgin Atlantic flights from London Gatwick to St. Lucia to four lucky women with the same name.
Your name on your passport must be Lucy or Lucia in order to qualify.
Between March 7 and 11, the Lucy's of the U.K. (or outside the U.K., if you’re willing to get yourself to London Gatwick) can enter to win on the Virgin Holidays website. Four winners will be chosen at random.
According to Metro, three Virgin Holidays consultants (also named Lucy) all went to St. Lucia to check out the prize vacation for themselves.
“Saint Lucia is such an incredible country with beautiful scenery and beautiful people,” Lucy Hudson told Metro. The country is particularly known for its gorgeous mountain landscapes as well as stunning beaches.
Virgin Holidays isn’t the first company to offer a special flight deal based on a name. Back in February, WOW Air offered anyone with the first or last name Valentine free tickets to Iceland.
On a similar note, JetBlue has offered free travel several times with a special catch, including free airfare as long as you go to volunteer while you travel, and free tickets for anyone willing to delete their Instagram account.
Anyone named Lucy looking to cash in on this deal can find more information and enter on the Virgin Holidays website.
