Dreaming of the journey of a lifetime? Then you’re going to want to take part in this EPIC Star Alliance competition that’s giving agents the chance to win an Inspirational Journey for you and a friend!

The world is an amazing place, full of exciting destinations and experiences that broaden the mind and enrich the soul.

And no one knows that better than Star Alliance who is celebrating 20 remarkable years of ‘connecting people and cultures’ – isn’t that why we work in the Travel Industry!

But knowing the world is an amazing place and actually experiencing different cultures for yourself is a whole different kettle of fish, and the only thing that stands in your way is money, right?

But what if it was possible to design your own Inspirational Journey that visits places that your normal ‘famil’ doesn’t go to and for someone else pay for it? An opportunity to visit people and cultures you normally couldn’t afford to do so?

Well, to mark its magnificent milestone – and help agents to understand just how extraordinary its global network is – Star Alliance is promoting an Inspirational Journeys competition that will give one lucky agent and a mate up to $11,000 in flights to embark on their own inspired itinerary.

All you need to do is design your own Inspirational Journey using the Fare Product Validator and submit if before 4 September, 2017 – the more inspirational, the better your chances of winning!”
