    Share your Sound Escapes

    Until 14 December

    Sound is a hugely important part of your holiday. We are working with our passengers to create a piece of music using the exciting sounds of holidays. This could be anything from the buzz of children’s laughter to soft rustling palm trees, lapping sea waves to city cabs honking & those distinctive holiday sounds that capture the very essence of a holiday.

    To enter your sounds, simply submit a sound file up to a minute long at If selected, it will help create a one-of-a-kind soundtrack, created by composer Nick Ryan, to be revealed in January 2019. If your sounds are chosen for inclusion you will be in with a chance of winning £500 of shopping vouchers. For further information view the terms and conditions below.
