Win £100 Spending Money PLUS ‘Travel Health’ For Your Next Holiday! (Now closed)

Okay Butterflyists. who’s going on holiday anytime soon? And if so, reckon you could do with an extra £100 in your pocket to spend, AND a great new health product that will save you from suffering with a tummy upset?

In that case, I have a super prize up for grabs for my readers. You can be in with a chance of winning a my Travel Cash card loaded with £100, and a supply Bimuno TRAVELAID, a ‘prebiotic’ that helps build up internal resistance to the yucky bugs that cause travel diarrhoea.

Both my Travel Cash and Bimuno have teamed up with me to offer this prize, and Bimuno have also thrown in some great sun products for your skin protection, as well as a handy little rucksack! The goody bag you’ll receive is altogether bountiful.

About my Travel Cash

my Travel Cash is a prepaid currency card that offers an inexpensive and convenient way of obtaining foreign currency. The cards are a cheap alternative to using most credit or debit cards abroad.

They benefit from Chip & PIN protection, have no link to your bank account and can be used at over 32 million merchants and in any of the 1.5 million ATMs worldwide that display the MasterCard Acceptance Mark.

my Travel Cash have recently introduced two new benefits to its cards: removing ATM* withdrawal fees and 1% unlimited cash back earned on all purchases. my Travel Cash currency.

In order to obtain the my Travel Cash part of the prize, the winner will need to complete an application form and have their ID verified by my Travel Cash, before the currency card can be sent.

About Bimuno TRAVELAID

Bimuno TRAVELAID is a new, preventative, health product designed to help support your tummy when abroad, by increasing the amount of ‘healthy’ bacteria in your gut before you travel.

Rather than attempting to cure a bout of the dreaded travellers’ diarrhoea once it’s struck, Bimuno TRAVELAID helps stop it from happening in the first place. You take the supplement – chewy pastilles – in the week running up to your holiday, and continue taking while away.

Bimuno TRAVELAID helps to stop bad bacteria from taking a hold, for example if you’ve eaten something not cooked properly. The product is the result of many years of intensive research by a team of international digestive health experts and the University of Reading.

The product is not tested on animals.

About the PRIZE:

The lucky winner will receive a my Travel Cash card to the value of £100 in their choice of currency, between Euros, Dollars or Multi-currency, and a generous supply of Bimuno TRAVELAID prebiotic (worth £19.98) – enough to support your tummy health for a two-week holiday!

The winner will also receive a fabby Bimuno goody bag of a nifty little rucksack and a sun skincare pack (two bottles of sunscreen SPF 15 and SPF 20, and aftersun).

So quite simply, whoever is fortunate enough to secure this prize won’t end up confined to the hotel bathroom for three days with the a case of the squits, knowing they have £100 spending money to splash around on their jollies!

Please note: In order to obtain the card part of the prize, my Travel Card will send the winner an application form to complete first.  * Some ATM providers may apply surcharges
