CONTIKI PARTNERS WITH POPULAR FASHION APP SHOPCADE
ANAHEIM, Calif., March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Contiki (www.contiki.com), the leader in youth travel for 18-35's has partnered with the hugely popular personal shopping app, Shopcade (www.shopcade.com) providing young, fashion-conscious jetsetters with a platform to plan and prepare fashionable looks for their upcoming travels.
Shopcade connects fashionistas to the best picks from the fashion world, powered by today's most fashionable celebrities, magazines, bloggers, and fellow fashionistas. Through the Contiki Shopcade page (http://www.shopcade.com/contiki), the fashion conscious can discover new trends and save and share all the essentials needed to look fashionable and stylish on vacation with 12 travel-themed lists.
Each list is dedicated to all types of young travelers. For example, Sun Worshipper is for the traveler who prefers pulling up a lounge chair on a Mexican beach or sunning themselves on the deck of a boat in Thailand. A sun worshipper's got to have their essentials and Shopcade's list includes the most sought-after bikinis, pretty beach cover ups, and accessories - perfect to pack on Contiki's Mexican Fiesta, Croatian Island Cruising, or Thai Island Hopping.
Similarly there is also a Thrill seekers list, dedicated to the more adventurous traveler, whether they are interested in skydiving, white water rafting, and bungee jumping or snowboarding – whatever gets the adrenaline pumping. Thrill seekers know how to live with #NOREGRETS and are full of exhilarating stories. But being adventurous doesn't mean you can't look good too. Shopcade's product lists include high tech gear, fashionable sportswear and products like GoPro cameras, snowboard helmets and Nike sneakers, perfect for Contiki's Peru Uncovered, New Zealand's Sweet as South, or Canada and the Rockies.
Other lists include: City Breaks, Glamping, Spring Getaways, Roadtripper, Globetrotter, Buongiorno Italia, Sail Away, Culture Vulture, Wandering Style and Festival Lover.
Contiki and Shopcade will also be giving away amazing prizes including a Contiki trip to Mexico including flights and a Festival Survival Kit.
From March 31st to May 11th, Shopcade will run a "Looks Competition" where participants will get the chance to win a Contiki trip to Mexico. Users simply upload a look to the Shopcade app using the hashtag #getpacking and Shopcade will choose the best look to win Contiki's Yucatan Highlights.
From April 7th, Shopcade will feature a Festival Lover list with fashion tips, products and ideas for your perfect festivals look. Since Contiki features so many great festivals in their program, from amazing live music festivals such as BBK Live in Bilbao, Sziget Music Festival in Budapest, to cultural festivals such as Oktoberfest in Germany, Contiki will run an Instagram competition (http://instagram.com/contiki) using the hashtag #contikifest where followers can tag their favorite festival pictures with the dedicated hashtag for a chance to win a festival survival kit.
