Entries will close at 23:59 Monday 7th May 2018


For his first trip as our Chief Adventure Officer, Jacob Allen 22, travelled to Inverness, so he could show you how you could save over £100 on an action-packed trip to Inverness Loch Ness.

By getting a train from his hometown of Scarborough to Inverness, using a 16-25 Railcard, Jacob was able to save 1/3 on his rail fare and went on to save over £129 on his whole trip.


Travel:  Off-Peak Return tickets from Scarborough to Inverness using a 16-25 Railcard - £97.70

Usually: £148

Accommodation: Visit Inverness Loch Ness helped us find some great deals on accommodation. They uncovered a two-night stay, for two people, deal at The Royal Highland Hotel - £144

Saving: £79
