Ever wanted to travel around the country without spending a single cent? Join the club!

AirAsia and Airbnb have joined forces to offer the chance for everyone—from WFH employees, creatives, and traveling families to certified bakasyonistas—to get the chance to travel the Philippines and receive accommodations for free.

Dubbed the Fly and Live Anywhere Contest, the initiative aims to give Filipinos the "ultimate dream adventure" with the chance to explore the country without worrying about how to get there and where to stay, arguably the biggest logistical challenges when it comes to traveling.

I'm hooked, how can I join?

Interested applicants may fill out the Fly and Live Anywhere questionnaire here. Get ready to dig deep, as the questions range from your Airbnb preferences, where would you go to travel with AirAsia, and why you want to bring three people you want to bring with you on the flights.

Each participant only has a maximum of one (1) entry, so best to make your answer count.

What are the qualifications?

Already have answers on hand? Make sure that you fit the following criteria:

  • Must be 18 years old or above
  • Must be a Philippine resident
  • Available to fly from September to October of 2022
  • Be able to understand and speak a conversational level of English
  • Be willing to provide at least one (1) photoshoot once identified as the contest winner
  • The winner and their companions must travel together from a single point of departure

Moreover, a panel of judges will look into each questionnaire answer and judge from the following rubric:

  1. Passion (40%) - Demonstrates passion and knowledge about both Airbnb and AirAsia offerings
  2. Itinerary (20%) - Presents a unique and interesting itinerary
  3. Purpose (20%) - Conveys a meaningful reason for travel with Companions
What exactly will I win?

Since it's a once-in-a-lifetime tag-team initiative from AirAsia and Airbnb, the two brands will offer Php 200,000 worth of Airbnb travel credits and 12 round-trip domestic flights with AirAsia. Winners can bring up to three companions on the trip.

Since Airbnb will shoulder the housing, the winner and their companions can travel anywhere in the Philippines for one month at any time within the September to October 2022 time period. All planned trips must be completed by 31 October 2022.

The Fly and Live Anywhere Promo runs from August 11 to August 21.
