How unlucky are you when it comes to travel

An unlucky traveller had a turnaround in their luck recently by winning a dream vacation worth ten thousand dollars. A competition ran by a travel insurance company looked to seek out the unluckiest traveller around and it turns out there are quite a lot of you out there as their competition was a hit! The lucky or, more so, unlucky winning entry involved falling off a cliff edge and breaking both legs. Ouch... but deserving of the prize nonetheless.

That got us thinking and chatting here in Hostels.com HQ about some of our unlucky travel moments over the years. From missing flights due to silly mistakes or going a whole week without any luggage on a holiday, we’ve all got an unlucky travel tale or two to tell.

So why not tell us about your unlucky travel moments or mishaps? After all, they do say it helps to talk! And if nothing else it might show you that your travel mishap may not be as bad as you thought?
