ExpertFlyer is one of my favorite travel websites because it lets you search for award availability on dozens of airlines, routing options, fare information and seat availability. It also has extremely useful functions like setting flight alerts which will automatically email you when airlines release award seats on flights you want, so you can book them before they’re snapped up by other travelers without having to spend frustrating hours searching for award space, especially on routes where availability is notoriously tight.

Enter ExpertFlyer’s contest on Facebook for all kinds of travel prizes.

ExpertFlyer just announced that on the last Friday of every month, they will select a random winner to receive a one-year subscription to ExpertFlyer PRO, and other fun goodies that will change from month to month but that might include an Innergie mobile device charger (super useful!), a Wireless Traveler Global SIM Card, PanAm memorabilia, Nomadic Matt’s book, “How To Travel The World on $50 A Day,” and more.

To sign up, go to the ExpertFlyer Travel Giveaway page and sign up, and then you can get even more entries by referring friends who sign up – each friend that enters with your referral URL earns you three additional entries.

The ExpertFlyer Pro annual subscription is worth $99.99 and includes unlimited queries, award and upgrade searchability, access to detailed seatmaps, flight availability and on-time performance metrics, the ability to set seat and flight alerts, flexible searches for +/- 3 days, the ability save queries, a mobile edition and more. It’s the subscription that I myself use all the time and that recently helped me book flights to my friend’s wedding in Austin on the fly.

ExpertFlyer’s Premium plan includes a lot of extra functionality that help save time for award bookings.

All in all, ExpertFlyer is one of the most powerful tools out there for award travelers. I use it all the time, and if you win this contest, so will you! But even if you don’t it’s something to consider, especially if you plan a lot of award travel or if you travel a lot and just like searching regular seat availability so you can take your pick of flights.

So enter today and good luck!
