Win a Rough Guide of Your Choice

November 5, 2009

Darn Good Digs launched its 2nd Nominate-a-thon this weekend, and are giving away either a Rough Guide of your choice or the Rough Guide’s new Earth Bound photography book to two lucky winners. The entire concept behind the site is that budget-minded travelers nominate their all-time favorite places to stay, and their editors select the best of the best to post on Nominate your favorite digs or simply sign up for the quarterly newsletter and you have a chance to win the Rough Guide of your choice. Which Rough Guide would you choose?

Started in the summer of 2008, the idea behind Darn Good Digs is to create a guide for budget-minded travelers to the best small hotels, guest houses, and bed & breakfasts around the world. After over a year online, Darn Good Digs has put together an eclectic collection of independently owned hotels across the globe, all with rooms under US$150, even in the high season. Highlights include a family-run eco-safari in South Africa’s Madikwe National Park, an exotic fruit farm in northeastern Australia, and a hip, theme-roomed motel in the Catskill Mountains just a few hours from New York City. Savvy travelers know about these hard-to-find places, and the site taps into this knowledge through their nomination process.

The first Nominate-a-thon earlier this year was a huge success, and they encourage even more in-the-know travelers to check out their site and paticipate by sharing their favorite places. Signing up for the contest is free and does not have to take more than a few seconds. So be sure to nominate your favorite digs and have a chance to win a Rough Guide of your choice! The current Nominate-a-thon is running until December 17, 2009.
