Become a travel guru with redspottedhanky.com

Win first-class rail passes to explore the sights and sounds of Europe

redspottedhanky.com, the place to go for cheap travel tickets online, wants YOU to become its Travel Guru.

Convince them that you and your friend are mad for travel, and they'll give the most persuasive pair first-class passes for European rail travel, provided by their partner Rail Europe – they’re also throwing in a pair of return standard class Eurostar tickets! That’s not all: you’ll have a night’s hotel stay to begin and end your European journey.

You'll also become their Travel Gurus, using your month-long InterRail prize to inspire exciting stories and images for you to share with the redspottedhanky.com community.

To enter, send them a video.  Show them, in 30 seconds or less, why you and your friend love travel. Is it because of an eventful train journey? An amazing sunset? A mouth-watering meal? Tell them, using all of your creativity, resourcefulness and your travel know-how. And most of all, make sure you have fun.  You'll need your sense of fun if your video is chosen as one of the top four.

As a finalist, you'll be dashing across the UK, completing silly challenges and gaining as many online votes for your efforts as you can.  Complete the tasks, and gain the most votes, and you'll be heading to Paris and beyond as Travel Gurus.
