Budget airline launches holiday to ‘mystery destination’ you only find out when you land

Taking daring travel to a whole new level.

Emily Sergeant Emily Sergeant - 19th February 2024

A budget airline has launched a ‘mystery’ holiday experience where you only get to find out the location when you step off the plane.

Consider yourself to be a daring traveller? Well it surely doesn’t get much more daring than this.

If the world is, quite literally, your oyster, and you’re the type of person who’s got a travel bucket list that covers the whole globe, then Wizz Air might have just the experience for you’re looking for, as the budget airline company is now offering Brits the chance to win “a trip of a lifetime” to a mystery destination.

As part of its new #LetsGetLostwithWIZZ campaign, you can sign up to hop on a flight to an unknown destination where you’ll only get to find out the location when you land.

Happening in just a matter of days, the flight will depart from London Gatwick Airport to the unknown destination on 7 March, and according to the airline, the 35 lucky people selected for the four-day holiday can expect a “jam-packed itinerary of fun” – including cultural, culinary, and adventure activities.


If you’re wondering whether you’ll need to pack your kaftans and swimwear, or your snow gear and hiking boots, then you’re right to question, but there’s no need to worry as this will all be answered before departure.

Winners will be told the climate of the mystery destination a few days ahead of the trip, but other than that, no other clues will be revealed until touching down.


Wizz Air flies to more than 70 destinations from the UK, and last year, some of the airline’s most-travelled-to destinations for Brits included Morocco, Cyprus, Greece, Turkey and Spain, with many other off-the-beaten-track locations also proving pretty popular, so there really is no telling where this daring lot will end up.

“We love connecting our passengers to new countries, and allowing them to meet new people and try new experiences,” commented Marion Geoffroy, who is Wizz Air UK’s Managing Director.

“Going on a flight to an unknown destination is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and we are pleased to be able to offer this to lucky winners here in the UK as way of saying ‘thank you’, and we hope to continue serving them as they travel the world and make new memories.”


Fancy it then?

For a chance to win a seat on the plane, UK residents just need to head on over to Wizz Air’s Instagram (@wizzair) and follow the prompts on the latest Instagram reel here, with those selected able to bring a plus one with them on the trip.
