2013 Prizes

We want every contributor, large or small, to have a chance at getting some really special gifts, and so we have a selection of items that will be awarded randomly to contributors.

Each $10 you contribute earns you one ticket in the drawing.  At the end of the promotional period, an impartial independent person will choose the winners from all entries earned and received.

Now for the really great part.  Although we think all these prizes are wonderful, we know that not everyone will have as great a need for some items as others.  So, you can choose which prize you want.  Obviously, the first person drawn has first choice, the second has second choice, and so on.

Hopefully this concept will encourage you to contribute, and perhaps to increase your contribution so as to get another $10 entry (or more) in the drawing.

So, what might you win?  Let’s see…..  Here’s a quick list, then please read on down for detailed descriptions of each prize.

Free Weekly Emailed Newsletter

Usually weekly, since 2001, we publish a roundup of travel and travel related technology developments, and often a feature article too.

You’ll stay up to date with the latest and greatest (and cautioned about the worst) developments.  You’ll get information to help you choose and become a better informed traveler and consumer, how to best use new technologies, and at times, will learn of things that might entertain, amuse, annoy or even outrage you.

We’re very politically incorrect and love to point out the unrebutted hypocrisies and unfairnesses out there.

This is all entirely free (but you’re welcome to voluntarily contribute!), and should you wish to, easy to cancel.

We’re not about to spam you any which way and as you can see, we don’t ask for any information except your email address and how often you want to receive our newsletters.

Newsletter Signup - Welcome!

Thanks for choosing to receive our newsletters.  We hope you’ll enjoy them and become a long-term reader, and maybe on occasion, add comments and thoughts of your own to the newsletters and articles we publish.

We’ll send you a confirmation email some time in the next few days to confirm your email address, and when you reply to that, you’ll then be on the list.

All the very best for now, and welcome to the growing “Travel Insider family”.
