Win an amazing 3 night trip for two to New York City!

Text for your chance to win an incredible three-night stay in the Big Apple, New York City!

Fly direct to New York and stay at the Dream Downtown hotel in SoHo. During your stay, we’ll organise a private helicopter flight over the city, the perfect way to soak up the city that never sleeps. That’s not all, enjoy a contemporary Mexican dinner at Cosme. Finally, we’ll throw in £1,000 spending money and your travel insurance.

The Flights

Conveniently travel from your closest international airport that operates direct flights to New York, plus you’ll get one piece of checked baggage per person too, so you can pack all your best outfits (but save space for shopping while you’re out there!).


The Hotel

Relax for three nights in your Bronze King room at The Dream Downtown hotel, chill by the 4-star hotel’s heated outdoor pool (which has a glass bottom that makes up the ceiling to the lobby below!) or even make use of the on-site gym if you can find the time! The hotel is fantastically located, close to the High Line, Chelsea Market and Greenwich Village. You’ll even get private transfers to and from the airport in New York, taking you straight to the hotel.


Helicopter ride

Fly over Manhattan in a private helicopter for up to 15 minutes, taking in the sights of the city from above.


Dinner at Cosme

You’re in for a treat one evening when you’ll get to dine at Cosme, which was named as one of the top 50 restaurants in the world in 2019 by Devoted to Mexican-inspired dishes using locally sourced ingredients from the Hudson Valley, you’ll get a three-course dinner for two from their a la carte menu, including a bottle of house wine to share.

Spending money

New York City is one of the best shopping destinations in the world, so as an extra treat, we’ll give you £1,000 spending money so you can well and truly treat yourself!

Travel insurance and ESTA fees

UK passport holders don’t need a visa to enter the US, but they do need a valid ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorisation) which come with a small cost, which we will cover for the winner and your guest. Likewise for travel insurance; that can sometimes be a pricey addition to your holiday and we will include this too.
