Imagine the rich delicacies that did not make it to your hotel menu, the view of the sunset from an uncommon angle, the thrill of swimming against currents (as against your hotel pool) or even performing at a local “open mic” session. Thrills tourists never even realize exist, but locals look forward to. This summer, Visa intends to introduce you to these #NotATourist experiences in your holiday destination.
There’s more! Visa is also rewarding Visa card users who spend $300 and above during their summer holidays abroad. Not travelling for summer? Don’t worry; you can still take part in this competition by using your Visa card to pay for purchases made on international websites. Grand prize is an all expense paid trip to Dubai for 4 couples.
iPhones would also be won in the #NotATourist Photo Contest on Twitter whereby you take a photograph of yourself at any #NotATourist spot you discover, upload and tag for a chance to win.
Promotion period: 1 July – 19 September, 2015.
