Thumbs-Up to the winners of our Keep Travel Fun Competition!

25 July 2017




If you were an entrant in our recent ‘Keep Travel Fun’ photo and caption competition – thank you very much! We were thrilled with the amount of people who took the time to enter, and also with the sheer variety and quality of the photos that we received.

As many of us prepare to head away from the UK for our Summer holidays – Keeping Summer Fun – is paramount in our minds! It’s great fun preparing for trips abroad, researching and planning what you would like to do whilst you’re away, but the foundation stone to build your plans upon, should always be a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Otherwise, all of your best laid plans, and your travel savings, could be put at jeopardy. Even if the worst happens whilst you’re away, then it can make the difference between having a temporarily bad time, to taking a really significant financial hit.

We asked you to enter your travel photos (from either abroad or in the UK) that encapsulated the slogan #keeptravelfun, along with an accompanying caption.  There were lots to choose from, when whittling down the entries into our ‘favourites’ shortlist, and they portrayed holidays both in the UK and abroad, and travellers young, old and every age in between!

The shortlist was then displayed in the foyer of the office where we are situated, and people were invited to choose their 3 favourites. We then totted up the votes for each picture, and found our winners. The shortlisted entries, that didn’t win one of the top prizes, all won a Go Walkabout beachball – which should help them add a bit of fun to their future travels!

Some pictures were poignant and emotive, some were entertaining and others were really inventive. Here are the Top 10 for you to enjoy:

Our Winner! Neil Hedge, who won a Fire HD tablet


Whilst out n’about sightseeing in India, the locals sometimes got over friendly…


One of our Runner’s Up – Fiona Haward, who won a travel sized scratch map


Loving exploring Canada on a road trip with the family. Being in a car for too long can get very  hot, so we needed to cool down in a passing lake (well, we were passing the lake, not the lake passing us!)


Our other Runner Up Natacha,  who also won a travel sized scratch map


Be at one with the locals!
