Leap Day babies: Win an amazing £1000 trip, courtesy of loveholidays this February

If you’re a Leap Day baby, you could win one of five £1000 holidays up for grabs this February!

Imagine being born on February 29th 1992 and thinking you are 32 years old – but actually, on a technicality, you’re only eight years old. Mad, right?

Unlike many of us, leap-year babies only get to celebrate a birthday once every four years. Of course, we’re sure these savvy individuals have indulged in celebrations (and most importantly, presents) on February 28th, but it’s still a bit trippy.

Leap Day babies could win a £1000 holiday this February….

Well, loveholidays agrees that there’s a little bit of unfairness going on from the universe and has given little leaplings the opportunity to win a £1000 holiday. Suddenly we’re a bit envious of this particular birth date…

To celebrate Leap Day 2024, online travel agent loveholidays is giving away five £1000 holiday vouchers to those born on February 29th because…well because they’re out there doing God’s work, really.

According to the Office of National Statistics, 10,796 people have been born on February 29th in the UK, since 1995. Okay, so the odds aren’t quite as high as some Leap Day babies might have hoped. But still…

Commenting on the giveaway, Al Murray, Chief Marketing Officer at loveholidays says: 

“Birthdays are a time to celebrate another go round the sun, and more people are choosing the gift of travel above anything else to do so. Having a birthday every four years means those born on leap day can miss out on the usual birthday fuss, so as part of our random acts of sunshine, we’re offering them the perfect opportunity to make up for ‘lost time’.”

How to enter the Leap Day competition

According to the Office of National Statistics (ONS), 10,796 people have been born on February 29 in the UK since 1995. If you’re one of these people, you can enter the giveaway until the end of Thursday 29th February. Entrants will need to submit their full name, email address and date of birth. T&Cs, including I.D. verification, apply.

Five lucky winners will be able to use their vouchers on a well-deserved break, selecting from millions of holidays, from short-haul city breaks to longer-haul package holidays. Not a bad trade-off for being a Leap Day baby, we don’t think…
