One Qualifying Booking will equal one entry into the Competition. By way of an example, 10 Qualifying Bookings will equal 10 entries into the Competition.

If they then make another 6 Qualifying Bookings they will have 15 entries in the Competition.The number of entries per travel agent is unlimited.

All bookings that meet the following criteria will constitute a “Qualifying Booking”:
a. Before completion of a booking, the travel agent must advise the customer making the booking that the booking transaction will qualify the travel agent entry into the Competition with a chance to win a cash or product prize. If the travel agent cannot confirm that this has been done, the entry will be invalid.
