In the run-up to Christmas, Ctrip International is launching their ‘Are you going to be a Grinch’ lottery, the website's biggest campaign of the year. Prizes include a complimentary stay at a luxury hotel, a classy dinner at an top-notch restaurant and - potentially the most alluring of all - travel credit.

Starting October 18 and running until December 31, the lottery is open to all registered Ctrip members that book flights departing between December 1 and December 31. Eschewing the capitalist spirit some could argue Christmas is built on, everyone wins something. Truly a competition for the masses. 

Travelers have the chance to keep gifts for themselves or white elephant it to someone else. For the scrooges who decide to keep the gift for themselves, they will be required to send a personalized e-card to five of their friends saying that they have done just that. "In a fun way," Ctrip stipulates.

The lottery will launch November 21. But anyone who’s booked a December flight via Ctrip since October 18 is valid to enter, and guaranteed to win. Just enter your flight number at the link below, and feel the holiday spirit.
