Insight Vacations’ Pay Back Your Parents competition is giving one lucky agent the chance to say thanks to their role models by sending them on a free trip to Ireland.

Remember last week when we told you all about Insight Vacations’ Pay Back Your Parents competition and asked you keep an eye out for the destination announcement?

Well, you don’t need to hold your breath a moment longer as the news is in.

The winner of this year’s Pay Back Your Parents contest will be sending their role models to – drum roll, pleaseIRELAND!


That magical land of rolling hills, windswept coastlines and pretty villages where there’s a historic castle on every horizon and a band playing ripping trad music in every pub.

All you need to do to be in the running to send your most-important people on the trip of a lifetime to the home of the Blarney Stone, Guinness, the Titanic and U2 is submit a video or photo telling us what makes your folks so fabulous.

And, while it’s officially called the Pay Back Your Parents competition, that doesn’t mean you’re limited to thanking the people listed on your birth certificate.

This year travel agents are encouraged to nominate anyone that’s played a part in helping them along life’s sometimes rocky roads.

It could be the aunt and uncle that never let you down, the neighbourhood who is always there to help, the pals that look after your dog when you go on all your work famils, or a family friend that can be relied upon to give good advice in tough times.




Just knock up an entertaining video explaining why these significant souls deserve to be rewarded with a memorable Insight Vacations’ adventure or, if you’re not a budding director and prefer old-fashioned photography, snap an image and compose 100 words explaining why they’re the ant’s pants.

And their 2019 vacation might just be a lap of the Emerald Isle on an itinerary that’s perfect for parentals.

Insight Vacations’ Irish tours are a sure-fire way to explore the amazing land on Europe’s western edge with an assortment of experiences included during the journey that let travellers spend time with locals to hear their stories and understand their customs.

It might be having a go at hurling with the members of a local club, spending the night at regal Ashford Castle, or exploring a captivating corner of the country on a car ride through some stunning scenery.

It only takes a couple of minutes to enter, and while the judges aren’t looking for a professional production they will be charmed by creativity so try thinking outside the box on this one.

There will be one grand-prize winner, landing that Insight Vacations’ trip for two, but that’s not the limit of the loot with four weekly champs snagging something special to share with the relatives.

So keep an eye out for the week-one winner on The IV League Agents Only Facebook Page while you go about crafting that clever video that might have you farewelling family at the airport in 2019.
