It happens to all of us.
Whether it’s a photo on Instagram, a status update on Facebook, or – ahem – a post from one of your favourite bloggers, chances are, you’ve seen a beach, a cityscape, or even an overstaged photo of a passport and flip flips and thought, “I am MISSING out.”
Do you suffer from Travel FOMO? (Fear Of Missing Out?)
You’re not alone. Many Canadians use FOMO as a source of inspiration and motivation, especially when it comes to booking family vacations, last minute road trips or simply adding a destination to their bucket list. But what is it about the fear of missing out that influences our spending habits? Why do we let ourselves be controlled by what others are doing, saying, living, spending – and putting on social media for all to obsess about?
We’re getting to the bottom of it at the #FamilyTravelCA Twitter Chat on Tuesday, March 24th at 8:00pm EDT. Joined by special guest @NickCowling, Vice President and General Manager at Citizen Relations, we’ll explore the concept of FOMO and how it impacts travel planning and purchases.
Of course, there’s only one way to reduce FOMO – and that’s to prepare for your next vacay! So we’re giving out $500 in Future Shop Gift Cards, with a $250 Grand Prize!
RSVP below for a chance to win, and see you on Tuesday night!
