Have you ever had a trip ruined by a serious car accident in Europe, a heart attack while in Asia or maybe even a nasty fall during a trek in Central America? If these kinds of incidents sound familiar, MedjetAssist wants to hear your stories. In honor of Travel Safety Month this August, the premier global air-medical transport membership program for savvy travelers is asking globetrotters to share their woeful tales of injury, emergency and mishap in the “It Happened to Me” contest. One former unlucky traveler will win a second-chance, worry-free vacation with a grand prize trip to Lost Iguana Resort & Spa in Costa Rica coupled with a short-term MedjetAssist membership.
Anyone who has visited a hospital instead of enjoying their vacation or business trip as planned is invited to submit a 100-word synopsis and photo of the nightmare incident or its aftermath (if available). Entries can be submitted via email to email@example.com by 9/30/12. The entrant with the most engaging and harrowing tale will be awarded a vacation make-over: a five-night stay in Costa Rica at Lost Iguana Resort & Spa. Nestled on 120 acres of primal rainforest where each of the 42 uniquely-appointed rooms enjoys perfect views of Arenal Volcano. In addition to suite accommodations for two, a couple’s massage at the on-site Golden Gecko Spa and round-trip local airport transportation are included. Since no traveler should leave home without being prepared for the unexpected, this exotic grand prize comes with two eight-day short-term MedjetAssist memberships for complete peace of mind while away.
Tell your own personal story about a dream vacation that turned into a nightmare situation and you will be entered to win the It Happened to Me Sweepstakes. Submission is as easy as emailing your nightmare vacation story along with the signed release to firstname.lastname@example.org. The traveler with the best story will win two 8-Day Short-Term Medjet memberships and a 5-night stay for two at Lost Iguana Resort & Spa in Arenal, Costa Rica. The prize package includes:
Two 8-Day Short-Term Medjet Memberships
5-Night Stay at Lost Iguana Resort & Spa in Arenal, Costa Rica
Suite Accommodations for Two
Couples Massage at Golden Gecko Spa
Round trip ground transportation between San Jose, Costa Rica and the hotel
AIRFARE IS NOT INCLUDED. Travel must take place on the date specified by the sponsor which is by 9/30/13. The approximate retail value of the prize is $2,190.
