snowmass2capitalone-logoThere are two types of family holiday vacations that are unforgettable: the ones in which everything went right and the trip seemed perfectly magical and the ones in which everything went horribly wrong. Those perfect holiday vacations deserve a second act and those perfectly awful ones deserve a do-over. Which kind has your family had? 

Between November 28 and December 10, Traveling Mom is offering its readers the chance to re-do a memorable holiday travel experience with a free family holiday vacation, courtesy of Capital One Venture. Share your stories with us and you could win a family vacation for four. 

The winner will get plane tickets for four and five nights in a hotel anywhere in the continental United States – a prize worth up to $5,000, courtesy of Capital One Venture.

How It Works


Just share a travel story on the TravelingMom Holiday Travel Double Take Giveaway in the comment section below this post. You may enter one unique story each day of the contest.

Sharing a story is the only required entry, but you can get one additional entry each day by sharing a link to the Holiday Travel Double Take Giveaway on Twitter.  Here is a sample tweet:
