Canadian agents can take home $50K in Global Scavenger Hunt

A $50,000 winner-take-all cash prize awaits the first-place team in the 2019 edition of the world travel championship.

The 15th annual world travel championship, known as The Global Scavenger Hunt, set to take place over 23-days between Apr. 12 and May 4, 2019, is now accepting applications for entry. 

Three weeks of adventure

Eager Indiana Jones-types of adventurers and curious travelers wanting to test their travel IQ against other travellers in an extraordinary around-the-world travel adventure competition that crowns The World’s Greatest Travellers, can apply at

“Prize money provides inspiration,” said event director William Chalmers. “We want the best international travellers to participate. The 2019 event will find out if travel writers and bloggers know the world as well as they claim to; whether social media influencers and travel agents know anything about travel; and whether some of the world’s ‘most travelled people’ and Amazing Race wannabe’s actually have any real-world travel skills. Participating, and winning our $50,000 winner-take-all prize, will be the ultimate proof.”

 The 2019 event will pit savvy international travelers against each other by taking them on A Blind Date with the World, visiting ten secret destinations without any prior preparation, and then have them unravel a constant blitz of highly authentic, participatory and challenging culturally-oriented scavenges along the way.

Applicants come from near and far, with participants from more than 55 countries. In the past, winning teams have been crowned from Canada, the USA, Barbados, The Netherlands, Belgium, Australia and New Zealand, to name a few.

The grand prize

The $50,000 first place prize goes to the winning team, and they are welcome to divide the prize as they see fit. 

Event participation is limited, and the $25,000 per team entry fee includes: all international airfare, first class hotels, 40 per cent of meals, and special event travel gear. 

All travellers are interviewed for suitability and single travelers are welcome to apply.
