Just like everyone has a favourite icecream flavour (#chocmint) we all love to choose how we travel. L.A. Tourism and United Airlines are giving YOU the chance to win AND choose your own L.A. epic famil. Best part? It will only take you 30 minutes!

L.A. Tourism & United Airlines are giving agents the chance to win an all expenses paid trip to the USA including flights, accommodation and the choice of one of four adventure itineraries.

Entering takes as little as 30 minutes by registering & completing the online training and ta-da – you are in the draw! Simple as pie… Cherry Pie!


Let’s face it the trickiest part of this incentive is simply choosing which epic L.A. adventure you would pick. To give you some tips on how to weigh up your options, here’s the 411 on two of the offered trips.

Soak up the glitz, glamour and thrill of Hollywood as you are treated like a Celebrity on the Hollywood: Live Like a Celeb adventure. Or, soak up the sunscreen, active wear and beautiful L.A. views when you choose the Active L.A. tour.

With all itineraries including flights & 4 nights of 4-star accommodation, in addition to activities, let’s take you on two of the adventures you could have. Here we go…


Getting there


Starting your journey in the City of Angels has so many perks. Apart from all the epic adventures you can choose to do (like the ones up for grabs in the L.A. comp), flying into LAX means you have the best access to explore the rest of North America.

Flying directly from Sydney or Melbourne, your arrival into Los Angeles begins on a state-of-the-art Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner with bigger windows, smarter lighting & larger overhead bins (you’ll need them for souvenirs).

There’s also the added option of Economy Plus with extra leg room and seating up the front of the cabin, making your exit of the plan that much faster and your entry in L.A. all the more extra.


Hollywood: Live Like a Celeb Adventure

On this adventure, everyday is like The Oscars as you are spoilt rotten by 4 nights at the Roosevelt Hotel with access to the legendary Spare Room bar with a vintage bowling alley and game for two.

Don’t let the jetlag get the best of you as you’ll need to confirm your Private Helicopter tour of LA as you put on your Kim Kardashian sunglasses and board your private car.

The next day will be just as luxurious as  you skip the queue at Universal Studios Hollywood. Who waits in line? That’s SO #2k18! Experience Butterbeer at Harry Potter World and bill it back to LA Tourism (okay, don’t do that but definitely try the Butterbeer!).

Theme parks are wild so the next day just pick up your luxury car hire from Black & White car rental as you head out to be a VIP at the Citadel Outlet shopping mall. Or, save it for another day and enjoy a daiquiri on Venice beach – it’s tough being SO fabulous…


Active LA Adventure


Start your morning with a welcome basket of organic wholefoods as you stare at the beautiful Venice beach with four nights at the Hotel Erwin, on the doorstep of sun, sand and urban energy.

Make sure you’ve packed your hiking shoes for this trip as you ascend (and sadly, descend) the infamous Runyon Canyon. With over 500 feet of elevation, your blood will be pumping but make sure you take a camera – the views are out of this world!

If it’s warm and hiking is too much on day one, take up your free Paddle Boarding lesson at Marina Del Ray where you’ll learn that balance isn’t always everything. Actually, it’s paddle boarding… balance is really important. Deep breaths – we believe in you.

If you’re struck for hunger, which you definitely will be after doing any exercise, you will be indulged with the Abbot Kinney green dining experience. Known for its array of different fooderies & attractions, Abbot Kinney boulevard is widely referred to as the ‘coolest block in LA’!



As if you needed any other reasons to enter the LA. Insider comp, each week there will be amazing weekly prizes to score. This week you have until 11.59pm on Tuesday 19th Feb to complete the L.A. Insider program and win a sweet Universal Studios Hollywood Merchandise pack.

The next week you can score an Active Luxury pack including an L.A. made and designed Manduka Yoga Mat, Compartes Chocolate and TWO Intercontinental Century City luxury bath robes (which are so soft you’ll never want to take them off).




The best part of this entire competition is just how gosh darn’ easy it is to enter.

All you have to do is complete the L.A. Insider program which offers you a stress-free, fun, colourful and super interactive with loads of cool videos and interesting info.

You can become an expert on all things L.A. in as little as 30 mins and it can be completed on both desktop and mobile via the app.

If you haven’t entered yet, you’ll be heartbroken to miss out.

Jump online and complete the LA Insider Training Program in just 30 minutes by the 12th of March and the choice could literally be yours if you win!
