WOMAN who bought her boyfriend the Wowcher Mystery Holiday deal ended up with a trip of a lifetime
Maia admitted that when she bought the business she thought she would end up with a weekend in a place like Dublin.
The deal, which starts from £99, offers trips ranging from weekend breaks in Europe to luxury long-haul journeys in the US and Asia.
Share a video on ICT Tac, Maia has revealed how she spent £204 on a vacation for the two of them, only to find she had won a week in Bangkok.
She said: “I bought a Wowcher Mystery Holiday for my boyfriend’s birthday and this is how it went.
“We were waiting for Dublin. But we won the first prize for Thailand.”
She then showed the email telling them they had won, which read: ‘Congratulations on winning your £99 pp holiday to Thailand! How amazing.’
Maia said she was in shock to have won the vacation which included return flights and seven nights’ accommodation.
However, due to Covid, which resulted in travel restrictions to Thailand, they were able to alter their trip to Dubai, with flights back in March.
It’s not the first time she’s bought the Mystery Holiday, she added, but she’s only won two nights in Milan before.
The video has been viewed over 1.4 million times – and most people joked that they wouldn’t be so lucky.
One person said, “I did it once and got the Bed and Breakfast in my local village.”
Another person joked: ‘My luck I would have Skegness or Craigtara.
Still, some have had great experiences, with one woman saying she spent four nights in New York.
Someone said: “I had Rome, bought two tickets but went alone and lived my best life!”
Maia isn’t the first winner – in 2019 a boy managed to spend four nights in Dubai with extra gifts for £99.
