TFE Hotels' 'Ultimate Weekend' competition has come to an end and TFE Hotels has named the lucky winner, who will jet off to New Zealand from Sydney with 11 of their friends to enjoy an Ultimate Weekend away valued at more than $15,000.
The Ultimate Weekend Winner, Carly White, from Sydney's Northern Beaches, is a new mother and soon-to-be bride. She entered the competition during a weekend away with her fiancé, whilst catching up with friends at Scarborough in Perth.
The winning prize is an ultimate weekend away experience for 12 people in conjunction with Velocity Frequent Flyer, including two nights' accommodation at any TFE Hotel throughout Australia or New Zealand, return Virgin Australia flights and $5,000 spending money for the winner.
"My partner David and I are getting married in November and as we both work long hours, we find it hard to make time between work and sport to get away for a weekend together. This prize is the ultimate opportunity for us and we're really looking forward to exploring new places with some close friends and our new baby," said Carly White.
With the average Aussie taking nearly ten sick days per year, TFE Hotels understands that there is a need to rest, recuperate and make the most of weekends, by being involved in activities of one's own choosing and spending time with friends and family.
Since April 2014, TFE Hotels has been 'Celebrating 100 Years of Great Weekends,' to inspire Aussies and Kiwis to get more from their weekends with special deals and offers. As part of the 'Ultimate Weekend' competition, TFE Hotels asked Australians and Kiwis to share what their ultimate weekend would be and received over 200,000 entries into the promotion.
Carly and her husband entered the competition with a photo entry tagged 'exploring the beautiful Perth coastland with the love of my life. Happiest holiday.'
"Memories are all that we will have when we are old and we intend to make as many as possible," Carly added.
TFE Hotels partnered with another leading travel brand, Virgin Australia's Velocity Frequent Flyer, for the year-long campaign. Velocity Frequent Flyer offers world-class benefits and rewards to travellers around the world.
Emma Fraser, Group Director of Marketing, TFE Hotels, said: "As our inaugural multi brand campaign under the TFE Hotels umbrella, this was an exciting partnership for TFE Hotels and we are thrilled to have accomplished such a rewarding campaign with Velocity, being such a recognised brand. Guests are at the heart of everything we do, as is creating memories for our guests that last a lifetime and TFE Hotels strives to ensure our guests' getaways are as enjoyable as possible."
TFE Hotels' current portfolio of 70 hotels includes Adina Apartment Hotels, Medina Serviced Apartments, Rendezvous Hotels, Vibe Hotels, Travelodge Hotels and Hotel Kurrajong Canberra.
