We have something very exciting to announce – Not only are we giving you all the detailed nuts and bolts of EXACTLY how we score tons of free travel all year long in our book, How To Travel For Free (or pretty damn near it!), but now we are also helping you to travel free by GIVING AWAY TRAVEL in great new contests!
That’s right, you can win free travel right here with us – along with saving tons of money on your own travel using our methods such as home exchanges, bartering, frequent flyer tricks and dozens of other ways that we travel for free, or next to nothing, extensively. Every month we will be featuring a new contest for travel giveaway to a different destination, right here on How To Travel For Free (or pretty damn near it!). So subscribe to our blog and check back frequently so you don’t miss any!
Our first Travel Giveaway Contest is for the hip, happening, beautiful city of Seattle. I (Shelley) wrote a guidebook to Seattle last year for Globe Pequot Press, called The Insiders Guide to Seattle. The book was recently published, and we will be giving away free autographed copies of the book to five lucky winners!
But that’s not even the best part. The Grand Prize winner will also win a FREE 2 NIGHT STAY at my favorite hotel in Seattle – the Hotel Max.
The Max is eclectic, artsy and fun. Set in the heart of downtown, it offers an artistic setting and provides a platform for both emerging and established Seattle artists and photographers. There are more than 350 original paintings and photographs found throughout the lobby, guest rooms and corridors.
Rooms are groovy, and the bar is one of the best in downtown Seattle. When I was living there, it was one of my favorite places. Intimate and understated, they serve great little light plates and killer cocktails.
So, how do you win? It’s simple – there are 4 ways to be entered into the giveaway:
- Buy How to Travel for Free. For every purchase of the book either as a pdf download, or softcover print version, you will be put into the contest with 10 Entries.

The contest will end at midnight, Monday February 28. Drawings will be done completely at random from the total entries at that time; the Grand Prize winner will receive a gift certificate for a free 2-night stay at Hotel Max (good for one year) and autographed copy of The Insiders Guide to Seattle; and four runners-up will also receive The Insiders Guide to Seattle.
