Win a Thomas Cook Olympic Games Break

 London 2012 Olympic Stadium

There is little doubt that Olympic 2012 fever has reached London but how hard was it to get tickets?  I know a handful of people who got some incredible tickets (including one to the opening ceremony) but most people I know were pretty disappointed. Even as the organising committee prepare to release another round of tickets this week, there is no guarantee that people will receive what they want.

Well, did you know that you can still buy tickets to the London 2012 Olympic Games? No? Well then…

You Might Need to Know This:

That’s right, you can get tickets to the Olympic Games with a Thomas Cook Games Break and the good news is that Thomas Cook have given me one Thomas Cook Games Break to giveaway.

This fantastic prize for two includes:

  • 2 Olympic Volleyball, Women’s Preliminaries tickets at Earls Court London, for 3 August 2012 at 8pm
  • Accommodation for two (with breakfast) at the Ibis Heathrow in London on 3 August 2012
  • A Transport for London Games Travelcard valid for travel to and from Olympic events


To win:

There are three ways to enter the competition and you can enter up to three times:

  • Facebook: “Like” the Emm in London Facebook page, find this post on the page and tell me what your favourite Olympic sport is.
  • Twitter: Tweet about this post giving the address of the post and stating:
    I definitely want to win tickets to the Olympics and you can too via @missus_emm #London2012
  • Comment: Comment below, telling me why you’d like to win this prize.

The competition is open until Monday 21 May 2012 at 6pm and is open to UK Residents and Designated European Country Residents aged 18 and over only.  Transport to/from London is not provided and winners must be in London on 3 and 4 August 2012.  Winners will be chosen at random, will be announced on Emm in London, Twitter and Facebook and will need to provide their name and address details to me to claim the prize.

Note: The link to the terms and conditions for the competition has now been removed as the competition ended on 21 May 2012.



  1. Great idea for giveaway. Posted on my fb, my blog Facebook and twitter xx

  2. Hi Mandy
    I am glad to "meet" you in person via the lovely video ! Of course I am interested in winning ;)
    and what would you say if I told you I definitely would like to win two tickets ! ;)
    Why, because I have never been to the Olympics and consider this as my one chance in a life time, ... because I do not know London all that well and any excuse is good :)... because I' love to meet you (in the real sense of the word this time :)
    and because I would then have a great story for what Blogging does to a person, story for this is Belgium of course even if the events take place across the chanel

  3. Great Emm - I miss the Olympic fever - one time when it would have been cool to live back in the East End

  4. Are you getting REALLY, really excited about the big event(s)? I'm sure there will be hassles, but how exciting for you Londoners!

    I'm excited just to learn that the volleyball will be happening at Earls Court, which was just down the street from where I lived in 2008. Have fun!

  5. I would love to attend an Olympic event and take my neice Elena, who loves many sporting activities and is a member of our local athletics club and she really wanted to attend any Olympic event.
    As a family we all tried unsuccessfully to purchase tickets to take Elena to an event at London 2012, hence why I would love to win this prize.

  6. I always thought there could be nothing more awesome than to be in the Olympic City. Of course, I visualised myself watching the crowds from my balcony ... but at least I am on the train line :)

  7. I'm a 'bah humbug' and will stay clear of London.

  8. Best giveaway ever; it was nice to see you "live" in your video. I would love to go to the Olympics, but unfortunately I also belong to John's club above :)

  9. I want to win! Yes please! Why? Pft! Because it's the Olympics, of course! What more of a reason could there be? :)

  10. Another bah, humbug here. :) I'm afraid I'll be staying well away from London during the Olympics, but it was lovely to see your video!

  11. It's great to see and hear you finally!

    I would suggest more videos from you!!!

  12. Yay..Hi was so fun to see your vid..beautifully done..wonderful! You are awesome!

  13. I'd love to win so I can have an event to take a friend who's visiting in town during the Olympics.

  14. I won't be going, but I look forward to watching it on tv and seeing your beautiful city. I bet they are or will be selling Olympics souvenirs everywhere soon.

  15. I would absolutely love to win so that I can (finally) attend the Olympics, visit my good friend Melizza, and enjoy the amazing city that is London!

  16. Thank you for this amazing giveaway! Some people have called this summer the most amazing season of sport in the UK for a long time-and it's true! I wasn't able to get tickets in the lottery rounds but I would love to celebrate the games with a few million new best friends and my partner of course. We both love live sport and I'm American and he's British so it would be brilliant to support both countries this summer (and rib each other in healthy rivalry)!

  17. If only Thomas Cook were offering an escape from London holiday I would have preferred that.

    TFL wont be able to cope, mark my words... I can't wait to hear the excuses from our Mayor...

  18. It would be a dream come true to experience the London Olympics first hand!! What a wonderful giveaway!! Good luck to all of the participants!!

  19. What an experience, who wouldn't want to win.
