Holidays: This travel brand is offering a luxury holiday for the price of a coffee

Travelling abroad may become a thing of the past as many remain indoors on lockdown to halt the spread of COVID-19. With travellers requesting refunds for their scuppered summer holiday plans, and travel firms reducing their operations, the travel industry looks like it could be heading for a tough couple of years. But now, one travel brand is offering keen holidaymakers the opportunity to win the trip of a lifetime, all for the price of a cup of takeaway coffee.

Cult Travel is a luxury prize draw where players can win luxury holidays and coronavirus stay-at-home bundles for a very reasonable price.

The monthly prize draw gives budding travellers the chance to win a variety of luxury prizes, from beauty bundles to all-inclusive holidays to bucket list destinations such as Santorini and Mexico.

Purchasing a ticket for the draw is done by choosing your travel companion, selecting your dates and waiting for the prize draw at the end of each month.

The winners are announced on Cult Travel’s Instagram page on the last day of the month at 6pm.

This month’s luxury holiday prize is a Junior Suite at Ocean Riviera Paradise Hotel in Cancun, Mexico which includes all inclusive meals and drinks, return flights on chosen dates which are redeemable for up to 18 months after lockdown, and tickets to a guided tour of the Coba Ruins.

The home bundle includes skincare, makeup, haircare and professional makeup artist brushes with over £200.

CEO of Cult Travel Jessica Court spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk about her travel brand and how she is managing to offer people the chance to travel to some incredible destinations.

Jessica explained how she began her business at the beginning of the year before the coronavirus pandemic began.

She said: “I started this with my partner back in February right before the coronavirus hit.

“We’re both avid travellers and we worked in the marketing industry for five years where we realised there was a gap in the market for people wanting to visit luxury destinations and hotels but were just unable to afford it.

“With stress levels at an all-time high – especially right now – and with less people being able to afford holidays generally, we wanted to offer people the chance to see and travel the world for the lowest price possible.

“We created Cult Travel as a luxury prize draw in which people are able to win a holiday for the price of a cup of coffee.

“All flights are inclusive, including return flights, and they also get an activity as well.

“All they need to do is sit back and relax.”

As the coronavirus pandemic began to impact on everyday life and travel, Jessica explained how she adapted her business and wanted to give everybody living in lockdown “something to look forward to”.

She explained: “We heard quite a few people especially during lockdown saying, ‘This sounds great, it gives us something to look forward to’ – and that’s exactly what we want.

“Our original plan was to offer a big holiday and then a weekend break but obviously where everything has gone into complete lockdown with travel restrictions coming into play, we’ve had to change our approach to things.

“We’ve got a smaller lockdown bundle where people can win smaller prizes like a makeup bundle or a Netflix/Amazon/Disney plus bundle.

“It’s for everyone – people with kids and people who are just sitting at home by themselves.

“Our way of adapting to this was giving people what they want while they’re inside the home.

“Because of the coronavirus, we’ve said to everyone if you win the holiday, the holiday will be valid from the end of lockdown until eighteen months afterwards.

“Lockdown could end but travel restrictions may not end until six months later so we wanted to give people that reassurance that you’ve won your holiday and you’ll be able to go on your holiday and we want to make this work for you.”

She added: “We’re still working in conjunction with the Government restrictions and we’re still in compliance with the travel restrictions and it means that everyone is happy and safe.”

But Cult Travel is offering more than just luxury prizes for those in lockdown, with an opportunity for people to support those NHS workers on the frontline battling against the coronavirus.

She added: “All the money from the stay-at-home bundle is going towards helping NHS charities and helping them get the PPE they need to help fight this.

“This is our way of giving back and helping to contribute towards beating this.”

A standard ticket costs £3.50 and a family ticket is £6 for the luxury holiday prize draw, while a home bundle ticket is £1.50.

Cult Travel will email the winners just before they are announced on social media.
