Competitours: An Amazing Race Without the Race?

Have you ever wanted to travel in Europe in a different yet exciting way?

According to FlyerTalk member beaubo, who is involved in the development of Competitours, “Competitours offers a compelling and user-friendly travel proposition for the ‘rest of us’ who would enjoy the thrill of a competition, but with challenges that offer a more immersive and genuine interaction with European people, places and culture. Our challenges will focus on teams’ mental abilities such as creativity, resourcefulness and inventiveness instead of the brute speed and strength that characterize The Amazing Race extreme ‘stunts’. The game schedule, point system and routing are structured to ensure that teams can savor, not speed through Europe. The grand prize is unprecedented considering the reasonable cost of this unique travel opportunity. Oh by the way, the game itinerary will be a secret!!”

    As a participant in the Global Scavengder Hunt in 2004, I can vouch that the trip was fantastic and the management team was extremely travel savvy and customer-centric.

    Competitours is a more modest undertaking for those folks who desire a team travel competition experience, but just might not have the time or money for a more global adventure.

    Both companies offer an intriguing travel opportunity, so either choice is a winning one for the travel consumer.

    5 countries in 14 days is pretty fast-paced, but to win you’ll need to be pretty up to speed on the places before you go. I reckon Competitours will be like a master-class – deep-dive learning on specific countries and cultures you’re interested in.

    Sounds like a blast. We’re going to send some writers (not me unfortunately 🙁 ) to document the practice run in March.

    I’m Tyler MacNiven, I won season 9 of the Amazing Race. If you want to race around the world without being a secret agent or Amazing Race contestant, then Competitours is the best bet. I’ve been itching for race-mode again so I signed up for a Competitours race this summer. I’ll be racing with the fastest lady I know: my Mother. It is a magical experience to charge through foreign landscapes with intense, fun, and creative missions. Competitours focuses more on creativity and fun than high level stress. Winning formula if you ask me. Come race with us!

    It’s race day! (only if you are in China, because it’s still the 27th here in San Francisco). Tomorrow my Mother and I hitch a metal bird to Geneva Switzerland to begin challenging ten other innocent teams on a race of wit and mental prowess. My Mother, of whom they based the character Nancy Drew on, and I have wild expectations of expecting the unexpected. Adventure, excitement, delicious European food! Here we come!!
