Who said that the post summer holidays has to be all doom and gloom? In the past couple of months we decided to bring a little bit of sunshine into your life by offering you not one, not three, but FOUR chances to win an amazing holiday at one of our destinations with us and our partners!

So, what were these prize draws all about and who won? Wonder no further!

September 2016. A holiday to Lisbon.


Entrants were in for the chance to win: return flights for two with Monarch to Lisbon; a three-night stay for two people at Hotel Mundial on a bed & breakfast basis. With its unique character and infinite attractions suitable to all ages and tastes, Lisbon makes for a perfect city break, as well as a gateaway to its surrounding which include some of Portugal’s best beaches. The lucky winner of the prize draw was Ms E Smith from London.

September/October 2016: A craft beer experience in the heart of Barcelona.



This was a very exciting one for us. We teamed up with our friends at BrewDog and at Barceló Hotels to offer: return flights for two in standard seats with Monarch to Barcelona; a two-night stay for two people at the incredible Hotel Barceló Raval on a bed & breakfast basis (plus an evening meal); a guided evening of craft beer tasting, courtesy of BrewDog. This prize draw particularly appealed to all you craft beer lovers out there, and we were pleased to randomly select Mr B Childs from London as our winner. We can’t wait to hear all about his trip!

3. September/October 2016: A golf holiday in Portugal.


An unmissable one for golf, Portugal and sun lovers, this prize draw was a joint promotion by Monarch and Golfbreaks.com. The tantalising prize consisted of a three-night stay at the idyllic Hotel Dolce Camporeal Lisbon for two with two rounds of golf, plus return flights with Monarch to Lisbon. After another random selection, we contacted Ms M Jasko from West Yorkshire with some excellent news. We hope she has a relaxing trip away!

4. A magical trip to Lapland.


This opportunity was so amazing that we think many fingers were crossed! Winning this would get you return flights for two to Kittila, Finland, with Monarch; four nights’ accommodation at Spa Hotel Levitunturi and access to all Arctic Experience activities. Lapland truly is a magical place! Generally known as Santa Claus’ home, take a trip here in the winter and you will likely find yourself marveling at the jaw-dropping Northern Ligths, as well as having the chance to go skiing, sledding, trekking and a lot more. After another random selection, we are happy to confirm that Mr K Dixon from Essex was the lucky winner!

And so here we are! If your name is not on this lucky list, don’t despair! We regularly run prize draws and competitions so there will be plenty more opportunities to win coming your way! Make sure you keep an eye on our competitions page on the website, as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages for any announcements.



  1. Congratulations to the lucky winners! All fur destinations are really breathtaking and an amazing experience full of distinctive culture, interesting cuisine and fascinating nature and architecture. Although we support the statement that post-summer holidays do not necessarily have to be spent in winter-like climate places and that the sun is much needed in winter time too, our personal favorite destination is Lapland – such a different and unique place!
