This post is Sticky till 12thFeb. Regular posts follow below this.

So here is the first ever contest that I am holding on this blog and I am quite excited about it. I hope I will manage to pass on some of the excitement to you as well. After all, would it not be fun if you got some money to spend on your next travel or purchase?

The Deal

The contest is simple and fun for travel lovers. Visit the Groupon India site and pick up the best travel deal that you can find. Leave the link to the deal and your brief comments on why you liked it as a comment on this blog. The comment has to be on a travel deal at Groupon India website to be eligible. It can be from any city in India.

What is Up for Grabs?

Two Groupon India Vouchers


1X5000 Rupees

1X3000 Rupees

You can use the vouchers to spend on any deal (and not just travel) on the site. If the cost of the deal exceeds, the difference has to be paid. If the cost of the deal is less the balance will remain in your account to spend later. The coupons are valid only for Groupon India site.

When Can I Start Posting Comments?

  1. http://www.groupon.co.in/deals/travel/Hangout-Agonda/236232
    [Goa: Rs.1599 for a Choice of Stay Options for 2 Persons in a Sea View Hut, Breakfast & MORE at Hangout Agonda, Agonda Beach, South Goa!]
    For a working person like me who stays in mumbai and barely gets 4-5 off days in one go, This offer is almost perfect. Since GOA is very near by and off course unwinding on the Agonda beach infront of lovely sea waves , sipping beer and completely relaxing and staying in the Huts , making it an unbeatable offer.. Need to say anything more? 🙂

  3. Wow..First of all I would like to thank you for having sucha great contest in your blog and also all the best for it.

    And according to me, I think this would be the best travel deal in Goupon.


    This is about a travel tour at Jimbaran, Bali which is one of the awesome and romantic tourist place in Indonesia. As there are very famous for islands, this is one of the best Island which will enthral your feeling to be in heaven.

    And the highlight of the deal is there are giving 76% of discount which is something unpredictable. So for me that too a deal for Bali, Indonesia is one of the best ever deal in Groupon

    Hope to win the contest and grab this deal as only exactly 5 days more for the deal to over.

    Thank You.

  4. I must thank you for giving us this wonderful opportunity……..

    The travel deal that fascinated me most is http://www.groupon.co.in/deals/travel/The-Park-on-Vembanad-Lake/226263

    Five star lake side luxury in God’s Own country at 8999/- for couples (2N/3D) is just too good to believe. It includes welcome drinks, Breakfast, Fruit Basket and Cookies, 1 Head and Shoulder Massage Or Foot Massage per Couple and Lunch/Dinner….. Really awesome……..

  5. I love this deal from Groupon to Pondicherry, the beautiful French inspired city. It has a lovely waterfront and beautiful French architecture.
    The hotel on offer particularly lovely, spread over 5 acres and a perfect spot to unwind over the weekend with loads of activities if you want to join in.
    In my dreams I am already there! Now let me see how much more would I have to put in if I get this prize coupon?

  6. Hey Hi,

    I’m back with one more interesting deal which I found today in Groupon.

    Here is the deal link of an awesome place in the outskirts of Delhi.


    Surajkund, which is one of he awesome and beautiful place situated in the outskirts of Delhi. It has a very good greenish atmosphere with fresh air. I was looking forward to go for this but I didn’t much time. So as this deal is good with giving 75% off, I guess th best option to choose now.

    If not now then when ?? So its better chance to grab the hay when sun shines. So hurry up to get this deal.

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year!
