Last Friday I published an article promoting The Times / The Sunday Times Travel Awards. They have put together an impressive list of luxury travel prizes worth £150,000 to be won by people who vote so it is well worth entering.
What I didn’t know at the time is that The Telegraph is also running a competition around its own travel awards.
This one is even bigger. Almost crazy, in fact.
There are 40 prizes on offer to be won by people who vote. They are worth an astonishing £800,000.
Some of them – in fact most of them – are a bit mad. You don’t just win a night at the Mandarin Oriental in London, for example. You win two nights in the 2,400 square foot Royal Suite plus dinner at the Heston Blumenthal and Daniel Boulud restaurants, plus spa treatments!
You don’t just win a night at Sibton Park, a country house hotel in Suffolk. You win the entire place for a weekend for you and 23 friends! And so on ….
I definitely recommend Head for Points readers vote. The website for the awards is here.
You only need to vote in four categories to be eligible for the prize draw, so it won’t take long. It would be good if one of those categories was ‘Best Travel Website’ and you voted for Head for Points but of course it is up to you!
