We owe our parents a mighty lot. They looked after us as children, guided us as teenagers and young adults, and still dish out the wisdom as we get older and turn into mums and dads ourselves.

And although we get to show them how much they mean to us each year on Mothers and Fathers Day, isn’t it time we told the whole country just how special our parents are, especially if doing so can win them a trip of a lifetime?

Well, Insight Vacations certainly thinks so!

That’s right folks, Insight Vacations is helping you pay it forward to your folks with the announcement of an industry-first competition that recognises the inspirational role your parents had in your lives as agents, and seeks to reward them for it.

You might’ve been inducted into the wonderful world of travel through your parents on childhood holidays to the Gold Coast, Disneyland or London. Or perhaps you were inspired by mum and dad’s tales of backpacking across Europe as young adults and promised yourself you’d do the same as soon as you finished university.

However your parents helped you discover travelling, by entering the Pay Back Your Parents agent competition, you’ll be in the running to win them a Grand Prize of their choice of holiday from a selection of Insight Vacations premium 2018 Europe & Britain escorted journeys, where they’ll experience the joys of Europe in ultimate comfort and class, meeting local people, trying authentic farm-to-table restaurants and relaxing in great hotels in the heart of the action. And to get them there, they’ll score a couple of return economy airfares as well, what else do you need?!

Now, isn’t this what your parents deserve after putting up with you for all these years?!

To win your parents this amazing prize, all you need to do is get creative and shoot and upload a video from your phone telling Insight Vacations why your parents deserve to win, and then share it across social media – the best, funniest, most creative video will win! Some of the Insight Vacations experiences include:

– Meeting a local foodie for a behind-the-scenes look into Parisian life. Try some local delicacies in a patisserie, boulangerie, fromagerie and chocolatier on a gourmet walking tour off the beaten track.
– In Ballindalloch visit one of the few remaining inhabited castles in Scotland and enjoy Farm-to-Table cuisine with Scottish Tea and Scones.

But don’t put any pressure on yourselves, as you don’t need to be no Steven Spielberg to win: just film something short and sweet on your phone – kind of like what these agents have down below!

Watch even more examples here.

But it’s not only the Grand Prize that’s up for grabs.

During each of the four weeks of the competition, the agent who uploads the best video of that week will win for their parents an Insight Inspired experience, such as…

Week one: A $200 RedBalloon gift voucher for two…

Week two: A $200 Good Food gift card to be used at one of Australia’s top restaurants

Week three: A $500 hotel gift voucher for a two night stay at one of Australia’s best hotels

Week four: A nifty little $200 Good Food gift card – just for yourself!

So what are you waiting for?

Whip out your phone, record a video telling Insight Vacations why your parents should win, and head on over to insightvacations.com/paybackyourparents to upload your video.

BUT HURRY: as the competition closes December 8th 2017!
