The European Commission in its international tourism communication campaign 'Europe - Whenever You're Ready' has launched a first-of-its-kind contest - 'Plan Your Vacation' to encourage Indian travellers to discover and explore Europe beyond the regular tourist attractions.

One just needs to submit a unique Europe itinerary on the campaign's Facebook application and stand a chance to win free tickets for their own itinerary.

The contest encourages fans to explore more about Europe and plan a unique itinerary for holidays in Europe to be submitted on the 'Europe - Whenever You're Ready' Facebook application.

The itinerary should cover at least 3 European destinations, bound by a common theme, within an affordable budget for a period of 7 to 15 days.

The best itinerary will win return airfares to go to and experience Europe.

Launched on Nov 22 the contest will run for three weeks and the name of the winner will be announced soon after.

The winner will then have 6 months to undertake the trip and write a report about their trip on behalf of the campaign.
