Well done lingo24 Jan 20, 2006

They will try to get a new slogan for the price a a ticket Britain-Portugal or 3 nights weekday outside the tourist attraction time.

It cost them much less than hiring a couple of creative brains.

Cheap cheap. If I win the stay, I would have to pay for the flight and this will cost me much more that 3 nights on week day in some hotel (they can at their discretion split the flight from the hotel if the winner is too far away).

I think they will have to offer more so that I try to find a slogan for somebody else (not to speak of slogans that I may well use some time for myself).

At least it is a nice, cheap marketing gag.

I completely agree with you Yolande.

Cynicism reigns Jan 23, 2006

Dear, dear, dear. A quick look at their website suggests that they already appear to have many creative minds on board. Could it be that they just thought it was a nice idea that would stir up a bit of interest? Surely not. Not all 'special offers' have a cynical agenda behind them, Yolande...
