Following the success of last year’s Win Me a Mini competition, Holiday Extras will once again be handing over the keys to a brand new car at this year’s Travel Weekly Agent Achievement Awards.

The competition has been brought back by popular demand, and has been renamed Win Me a Better Mini for 2017 as Holiday Extras has upgraded the prize to an amazing Mini Cooper D.

To boost your chances of winning the stylish car and to be the envy of the other agents on the July 11, simply make bookings with Holiday Extras.

The add-ons provider is pushing its range of airport transfers and car hire but you can also book any of its products – such as airport parking, airport hotels, lounges, attraction tickets and fast track entries as well as holiday insurance – to increase your chances of winning.


James Lewis, head of partnerships at Holiday Extras, said: “The competition to give away a Mini went so well last year that we thought we’d do it again, but bigger and better.

“A Mini Cooper D is quite a fun car and one that’s very popular among travel agents.”

The Agent Achievement Awards is the annual awards ceremony celebrating the best of the UK travel trade. The 2017 edition has its glitzy awards ceremony at the Park Plaza at Westminster Bridge on July 11.

Lucy Huxley, Travel Weekly’s editor-in-chief, said: “Watching an agent win a Mini was a fantastic addition last year to what is already the flagship event on travel agents’ calendars.

“The Agent Achievement Awards is a night when we can honour the best of the industry, and sending an agent home with such a fabulous prize will be a great extra to add on to the evening.”

The Prize

In midnight black with modern white bonnet stripes, the Mini Cooper D is a model of stylish chic.

The classic Mini shape looks as good as ever and its timeless appeal will no doubt attract plenty of entries.

This version – which retails for more than £20,000 – has three doors but Mini’s designers say its “unique go-kart feeling” is maintained with its low centre of gravity, short overhangs, wide track and rigid chassis.

The 116 horsepower three-door Mini Cooper D goes from 0-62mph in 9.2 seconds and sips a modest 3.71 litres/100km.
