If taking a cruise to Alaska with someone you love for free tops your vacation wish list this year then today is the day to register to win a free cruise for two from AARP’s Travel Dream Vacation Sweepstakes. The entry period for this freebie vacation ends on March 30, 2014, according to AARP’s official contest rules. So it is the very last day to enter. But you have to be at least 45 years old to enter to win.
You will not have to wait too long to know who wins, like with some sweepstakes prizes advertised from other companies. And that’s because a winner will be chosen for this particular travel prize as early as Monday, March 31. The company will have eight more weeks of vacation travel giveaway opportunities to make and then they will announce the winner from each of their 10 vacation giveaways.
So while you may have missed your chance to enter for the European river cruise during week one, you can still enter at least one day for this Alaskan cruise opportunity. And USA Today reported on Friday that if you fly Alaska Air for your Alaskan trip vacation you will be glad to know that they are adding nonstop service to more cities on their route network later this year.
If Alaska vacationing isn’t for you, there are other vacation giveaways that will be, like the trip to London and Italy, or the Rockies trip, or you could enter to win a Disney World trip, a Las Vegas trip, as well as a chance to go to the Riviera Maya, take a California road trip, or go on a Caribbean cruise–or even fly to Hawaii for a vacation.
Ground transport to and from an airport near your home and the destination site (and paid hotel accommodations, as well as paid round-trip airfare), is included in trips won that require those travel arrangements. And car rental fees and hotel expenses are paid for trips not requiring flight to and from the vacation destination, like with the California road trip vacation.
In some cases, gratuities and meal expenses are paid in advance, such as in the instance of cruises. And in other instances dining plans and ticket costs are provided in the vacation package deal, like with the Disney World trip.
If you would rather have the money to take your own big-city vacation, attend a VIP sporting event, or enjoy a five-star skiing trip, then Publishers Clearing House is trying to make those dream vacations come true for their game-playing, magazine-buying customers of their PCH dot com website.
Deadline for entry in the PCH travel sweepstakes was March 31, as of their official rules on Friday, but this weekend they changed the award date to June 30 instead. This is the second time in three months that they have done that, so maybe they have chosen a winner for that money now, and they plan to award it soon, choosing to also offer another person the chance to win the same amount in the months ahead.
