30th anniversary for STA, 30 chances for you to win a trip in April

Trips have officially replaced goody bags as the party-favor-of-choice (and not a moment too soon). STA Travel celebrates its 30th anniversary by giving away a trip every day in April.

Most of the trips slated to be given away are to Europe, but they’re also to United Arab Emirates, Australia, and South Africa, as well as Canada and within the US. It all depends on what day you enter and win. The destination for the first day of the giveaway, April 1st, is United Arab Emirates.

To enter, go to STA’s “30 Days of Free Travel” website after it launches on April 1st. There, you’ll want to provide your name, email, status (student, youth under 26, teacher, or parent), zip code, and where you want to travel this summer. Yes, in sticking with the ’30’ theme, you must be 30-years-old or younger to win.

Win Backroads Trip to Costa Rica!

Have you ever been to Costa Rica? I haven’t but I’ve been dying to go ever since my brother (usually the anti-traveler in the family ) came back from a 3-week trip armed with awesome photos, even better stories, a wicked tan and a hippy-style ring for me that I’ve worn ever since.

Here’s your chance to immerse yourself in Costa Rica’s lush rainforest for free — you can enter to win a Backroads Trip for two to the tropical destination. There’s no need to rush though — the contest is open until May 31, 2008. You can enter by clicking here.
