GPSmyCity have been successfully publishing travel articles and self-guided tours on their app since 2009. With more than 6,500 articles and tours exploring over 1,000 cities worldwide, if you’re about to head off for a city break, or perhaps make an excursion to a city from a beach holiday, you’re almost bound to find a brilliant article to guide you to making the most of your time in your chosen city.
GPSmyCity’s mobile apps – iOS and Android – feature self-guided city walks and GPS-powered travel articles that turn your smartphone or tablet into your very own personal guide. Each walk or article comes with a detailed travel route plotted on an offline map to lead you to all the attractions mentioned. You can go at your own pace; you can read the article and use the map offline so you don’t need to use data roaming or find WiFi; nor do you have to carry guidebooks and maps with you. You won’t get lost and you’ll be guided to the best attractions, cultural sights, markets, cafes, bars and restaurants in the city and be given information about them.
The GPSmyCity app is free to download (see their website) and you can access all articles for free but to get the true GPSmyCity experience, and the best out of the app, with a customised offline map and GPS directions to guide you around the city to all places mentioned in the article, you pay a small upgrade fee of $1.99 per article. So successful has the app been that GPSmyCity have now introduced a subscription option so you can always have the ‘full GPSmyCity experience’ with you on your phone or tablet, wherever you are, to access at any time. You can buy an annual subscription to all travel articles for 900+ cities worldwide for $12.99/year OR $18.99/year for full access to all walking tours + travel articles covering 1,000+ cities.
GPSmyCity now publish nearly 30 of my travel articles, which I’m very excited about. I’m also excited that they’ve offered to give 10 of my followers a free one-year subscription (each worth $18.99). Thus I’m setting a competition to give everyone the chance of winning this great prize and the opportunity to try out GPSmyCity for free for a whole year. This is great timing as we head into spring, with summer ahead of us, and you have the opportunity to have this guide for wherever your travel plans are taking you in 2018.
For a chance to win the competition, tell me in less than 50 words via a Comment below what your dream travel destination is and why you want to go there. All entries must be in by Monday 23 April. I’ll choose the most interesting entries as winners and in the event of a tie (i.e. I can’t choose from so many great ideas!), I’ll draw 10 names from a shortlist in a hat. Winners will be notified by email of how they can claim their prize.
So – get thinking! Where would you love to go if you could choose anywhere in the world and there were no limitations, like money and what you can afford. What is your dream destination and why? Tell me below in Comments and maybe you’ll be a winner! (Unfortunately I can’t send you to your destination but I am looking forward to hearing about where people dream of going!)
