My friends over at Roomsurfer are allowing me to give away a free trip to Berlin. You probably haven’t heard about Roomsurfer yet, but with a pretty website and a lot of enthusiasm, it’s a travel company worth watching.
Roomsurfer is yet another accommodation website, but with a hipster twist. The website uses your Facebook profile to match you with a potential host in whichever city you’re looking to visit. So if you like a certain type of music, you’ll be connected with potential hosts with similar tastes. It’s a unique way to get to know new people. With airlines already using Facebook to match passengers with seatmates, social-media profiling (is that the right way to word it, I don’t know?!) is only going to increase in the travel industry. And Roomsurfer is on its way up.
It’s a lot like CouchSurfing, but with Roomsurfer you’re paying for a host. Whereas I may spend hours (or days) writing and trying to organize a host on CouchSurfing, Roomsurfer does all the hard work for you. Finding a potential host could finally be a lot easier!
Win a weekend to Berlin
So to celebrate Roomsurfer’s upcoming launch party in Berlin, they’re inviting Supersurfers from all over Europe to a free trip to Berlin. You’ll get to spend the weekend with a Roomsurfer host, but perhaps most importantly, you’ll get to visit Europe’s coolest city. To enter the contest, all you need to do is leave a comment here on why you want to visit Berlin. Whether it’s currywurst (meh) or Berghain (awesome).
Oh, and you’ll want to get to Berlin quick because, according to this article, Berlin’s rep as a party/club town is quickly dying.
If you win the contest, you’ll be expected to travel to Berlin on the weekend of April 28-29 so you can attend the Roomsurfer launch party. And if it’s anything like their other parties, there will be plenty of free drinks. Use the form below to enter the contest.
When: April 28-29
What: Free travel to Berlin for the Roomsurfer Launch Party (from one of these 100 European cities) & 1 night accommodation
