UPDATE: Winners have been announced here!
Allianz Global Assistance is offering a pretty cool contest to win an all-expenses paid three-night trip to New York for The New York Times Travel Show for you and a guest with airfare, meals and accommodations. This includes a dinner with yours truly! Yep, that’s right, you’ll get to dine with Gary Arndt, Lee Abbamonte and me one evening.
Winners will receive the VIP Allianz Global Assistance “Concierge” experience with a special guided tour of Lower Manhattan to iconic New York landmarks and lunch with travel author Pauline Frommer. The winners will stay at Ink 48 and obtain entrance to the NY Times Travel Show. Winners will even snag an Allianz Travel Insurance “Go Bag” with a GoPro, Portable Power Pack, Passport Holder with RFID Protection, and a Frommer’s EasyGuide to New York City.
How to enter
Travelers can enter through Facebook at the Allianz Travel Insurance USA page or participate in the @AllianzTravelUS Twitter Chat on November 12 to be entered automatically for a drawing to win the trip for themselves and a guest.*
There’s a separate contest for bloggers as well. They can enter to win by embedding the Allianz “Content Capsule” onto their websites. The blogger who drives the most traffic from their readers to the contest entry will win the trip for themselves and one guest.*
Here are the official contest rules. Good luck and I look forward to meeting the lucky winner!
I’m also looking forward to speaking this year at the show with Chris McGinnis. We’ll chat about how to “Travel Like a Rock Star” Sunday, January 10 from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm.
