How would YOU like to spend a whole week on a tropical island?
That’s right! Here’s YOUR chance to win a getaway to one of Europe’s hottest places, tucked away off the coast, where the sun shines all year round and tourists still don’t know about!
It’s Funchal on Portugal’s beautiful Madeira Island!
Win a "trip" is certainly a misleading. tease. All the winner gets is a "stay" -- and a half-of-one at that, if strangers have to share a 1-bedroom apartment. Not even clear if you have to share the bedroom itself. What if the finalists are of opposite genders? And I guess non-single people should not bother entering.
What kind of "trip" includes no transportation whatsoever, not even the ferry from the mainland to the island? And not one meal during the stay?! Assuming food is a bit more expensive on the island than the mainland, it sounds like it would be cheaper to pass on the "freebie" and pay for a room at a mainland all-inclusive beach resort, or one close to supermarkets as well as restaurant options, and save the difference by buying cheaper food.
Not to mention you've got just the next 2 days to enter the contest, and then just 3 weeks before you have to get to Madeira and use the stay during one very restrictive set of dates. Seems to me most people have made their summer plans by now, or would need more to time to arrange time off, to take advantage of any "win."
If this is what qualifies as a "BIG" prize, imagine if it were any smaller!
Thanks for the feedback Buzzy and for visiting the site. I definitely agree, I've changed the title. I certainly don't want to sound misleading.
