Online travel agency Travel Republic has launched both a sale and a video competition to mark its tenth anniversary.
Customers are being asked to submit personal birthday wishes in video form, including songs, animations and family holiday snaps to be in with a chance of winning 10 prizes including seven nights in Crete.
The company, which claims more than one million holiday searches a day, says destinations rising in popularity this year include Mykonos, with bookings are up 169% on last year, due in part to new direct flights from Manchester by easyjet; Berlin, up 133%; and Cancun, up 96%.
Founder and CEO Paul Furner said: “I can vividly remember our first booking back in June 2003. Ten years on we employ over 350 people in the UK, have a growing operation in Barcelona and have plans to drive annual turnover to the £1 billion level within the next three years.
“We have incredible staff and trading partners and I would like to thank them for their ongoing support.”
