French market leader announces winner of its travel blogger competition
The number one travel comparison site in France, VoyagerMoinsCher.com, a Rakuten Group company, organised a globetrotting blogger competition to accompany the upcoming launch of its holiday price comparison search engine and deal finder site in the UK, called travelizer.co.uk.
Travelizer.co.uk offered bloggers the chance to win an exciting pick 'n' mix weekend break worth £800 to give them a taste of the tailor-made holidays that will be available on the site.
In order to win bloggers were asked to write a minimum of 150 words on their favourite holiday destination and include a photo with their submission. The winner was chosen at random from the pool of entrants posting their travel tips before mid-November.
The lucky winner, Wendy writing about her holiday to Northern France, was delighted to receive the prize, "I really enjoyed writing my post to enter the Travelizer competition. Then to find out I was the winner was amazing."
Commenting on the competition, Victoria Wall, from travelizer.co.uk explained, "We wanted to create a contest in line with our commitment to offering personalised holidays via our different search engines, exclusive editorial content and carefully selected deals. We definitely feel this competition achieved that and look forward to further tailoring our travel offers through social media in the future."
The company behind travelizer.co.uk, Voyager Moins Cher, has more than 11 years of travel comparison experience. The website was bought by leading French e-commerce PriceMinister in 2007, which was subsequently acquired in 2010 by Rakuten, the leading Japanese internet services company.
