Sponsored video: TomTom’s Map Paradise Project – £10k for two weeks on a paradise island? Yes please!

Not content with making sure that your journey to the wilds of Norfolk goes without a hitch whether you’re using the app or the physical GPS unit, TomTom aren’t resting. This summer they’re aiming to map four paradise islands. 

And they’re looking for some help. Your help, to be precise. 

They’re looking for a family to travel to each island and spend two weeks mapping it. Although this involves driving about with the TomTom vehicle for what appears to be a minimum of 2 days, there’s  substantial allowances for a bit of beach time. And we’re talking proper paradise islands– Mauritius, Viti Levu (Fiji), St Lucia, Santiago (Cape Verde), Mahe (The Seychelles). 

All expenses are paid. In fact, here’s what you get if you win the Mauritius one:

The trip for two weeks mapping and exploring Mauritius (from the 28th of June until the 12th of July) will include: • EUR 10,000 £ • Round trip flights for maximum five people to Mauritius • Round trip private transfers from the airport to the hotel resort • 14 nights accommodation at a 4 Star All Inclusive Beach Resort • Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks each day at the resort • Use of the resort facilities and activities for the duration of your stay • Day trip for five people to Ile aux Cerfs to include: 1. Boat transfers in a comfortable motor boat to Ile aux Cerfs and back to shore 2. Welcome fruit cocktail at the famous Ile aux Cerfs Sand’s Bar 3. Traditional beach back rest and mattresses on the famous beach of Ile aux Cerfs 4. Delicious 3 courses meal served at the Paul et Virginie (seafood restaurant) or at the Masala (Indian restaurant) • Private full day Jeep tour of the island for five people to include: 1. Lunch and drinks with a Mauritian family 2. Access to nature reserves and private properties 3. Full transportation in a 4×4 Jeep 4. Personal experienced travel guide • Travel insurance
