Travel insurance is an essential part of planning a trip, right along with making flight reservations and booking accommodations.  It provides travelers protection in the event of unfortunate events abroad, such as medical emergencies, cancellations or delays, and lost or stolen baggage.

Having travel insurance can give you peace of mind knowing that you’re covered when your trip doesn’t quite go as planned and can save you tons of money and stress in what could otherwise be a disastrous situation. 

Although travel insurance has been around for quite some time, it has become much more commonplace in recent years, with many countries even adding it to their list of entry requirements. 

One such company that has been in the market for years – 20 years to be exact – is World Nomads.  To celebrate its 20th birthday, World Nomads is giving away 3 trips to Vietnam, with prizes worth over $4,500 USD.  Why Vietnam?  It was the destination of choice for their very first customer.

What Is Included In The Prize Package?

The trip alone is valued at $1,435, but that is not all they are giving away.  Winners will also receive flights, spending money, clothes, and of course, travel insurance.  Here is a list of all prizes and their value:

  • A 10-day “Vietnam Express Southbound” tour with Intrepid Travel (valued at $1,435)
  • $1,650 to put toward flights
  • $750 spending money for the trip from Adventure.Travel
  • $500 in sustainable clothing from Toad&Co Clothing

Trip Itinerary

The Vietnam Express Southbound tour will take you on a 10-day adventure from north to south, starting in Hanoi and ending in Ho Chi Minh City.  You’ll travel the eastern coast, stopping in bustling cities and small fishing villages along the way.  

Stops include Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City, and the Mekong Delta.  Those joining the trip will travel by various modes of transportation.  There will be sleeper trains, tuk-tuks, motorbikes, and even an overnight boat, so be ready for some long but unforgettable journeys.

Trip leaders and local guides will lead tours to take you to the best-hidden spots for street food, explain the culture and history, and show you around World Heritage sites.  Throughout the trip, travelers will visit museums, caves, islands, markets, and temples, just to name a few. 

Many of the meals on the trip are included and will give guests a sample of Vietnamese cuisines, such as pho, banh mi, fresh seafood, and a special vegetarian meal in a Buddhist monastery.

There will also be free time scheduled into the trip for those who want to explore on their own, with activity suggestions from the tour leader.  However, any additional activities will be extra. 

These are the activities and amenities included in the trip:

  • Trip leader and local guides
  • 14 scheduled activities with the group
  • Transportation by motorbike, plane, private minibus, taxi, sampan, tuk-tuk, sleeper train, and overnight boat
  • 9 nights accommodation (7 nights in hotels, 1 overnight boat, and 1 sleeper train)

How To Apply

The application is quite simple.  To enter, all you have to do is tell World Nomads about your favorite travel memory from the past 20 years, in 20 words or less.  Applications are open to those from most countries around the world (unfortunately there are a few restrictions due to local laws), although entries must be in English. 

Each person can only apply once, so make sure your memory creates an impression on the judges!  The three best responses will be awarded one trip each, along with the rest of the prize package.  The deadline to apply is April 15th, and winners will be announced on May 5th
