DALLAS, Nov. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- While "two feet tall", "slightly rotund", and "has a penchant for red, conical hats" may not be phrases commonly equated with a successful online dating profile, when that profile belongs to the Travelocity® Roaming Gnome®, it may represent the perfect profile for anyone who loves to travel. Starting today, Tinder users who stumble across a certain ruggedly handsome gnome should pause before swiping left, as he may be the key to heading off to a brand new tropical resort destination.
By swiping right, Tinder users will receive a message in their inbox on how to enter the "Be My Gnomie" contest by demonstrating why they are the Roaming Gnome's perfect travel companion for a chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime trip for two at three of the newest luxury-service resorts in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and Nassau, Bahamas to experience travel just like the Roaming Gnome himself.
"The Roaming Gnome has been traveling the globe for well over a decade, and he knows better than anyone how to really get the most out of a travel experience. One thing he's learned is that travel is most enjoyable when you have a great travel companion and a trusted travel provider like Travelocity that makes it easy to just relax and enjoy by taking care of the details," said Ashley Parker, Director of Brand Marketing for Travelocity. "We are excited to see all of the creative ways that people will come up with as they show us why they are the perfect travel companion for the Roaming Gnome."
Not a Tinder user? Not a problem. Entering the "Be My Gnomie" contest is as easy as following @RoamingGnome and @Travelocity on Instagram, and then submitting a photo or video post telling us why you would be the perfect travel companion, using the hashtag #BeMyGnomieContest. The winner will receive round trip business class airfare for himself/herself and a guest along with three nights each at three of the hottest new resorts in Montego Bay, Punta Cana, and Nassau. Full contest details are available at www.travelocity.com/bemygnomie.
