Now that the days are finally getting warmer, and more of us are setting off on our exciting travel adventures, now seems like a great time to unleash our new photo competition onto the world!

Travel is all about spreading your wings, enjoying new experiences and exploring different cultures  – but mostly, it’s about having fun – and lots of it! Getting away from it all, and living life in  a new setting, is liberating. It encourages us to embrace the joy and excitement that life has to offer, break out of our comfort zone and enjoy the funny and unexpected moments that crop up along the way.

It everything that happened during our travels went brilliantly, then of course,  travel insurance wouldn’t exist – but there is a very real need – due to the unexpected nature of life – and travel in particular!

The ethos of our new competition is encapsulated by the slogan #keeptravelfun . Take out our comprehensive and competitively-priced travel insurance, and then enjoy your travels to the full,  knowing that the financial safety net of our policy cover, is waiting in the wings, if you do experience an unexpected problem or unlucky event. Don’t let the fear of the repercussions of what could happen whilst you’re away, stop you travelling and having fun – but make sure that you have bought your travel insurance before you go, as a sensible precaution.

A Go Walkabout policy is a great choice for many reasons, but here are a few:

How to Enter

We would like you to submit a photo (or more than one if you like) that you feel sums up the sentiment #keeptravelfun . The creative brief is very open, but the winning photos will be the ones that an independent panel of judges collectively feel best illustrates the fun that travel can be. It could be an image of you and a group of friends ‘dabbing’ on the Inca Trail, a photo of you posing with a friend you made along the way (animal or human), or a photo of you doing something that you’ve always dreamed of doing, and putting a big tick on your ever-increasing bucketlist. The photo can be taken whilst you’re on a UK staycation, or whilst you’re away anywhere in the world. Please see the full terms and conditions at the bottom of the page, plus the entry form. You can also enter on Instagram or Twitter, by tagging your photo with #keeptravelfun

Good Luck!
