Competition: win a £500 voucher to spend at a Plum Guide home

For our latest competition, we've teamed up with vacation rental platform Plum Guide to offer readers the chance to win a £500 voucher towards a stay at any Plum Guide home.

This competition is now closed. 

Plum Guide finds and awards luxurious homes across the world with its stringent quality mark, the Plum Guide Award. Current homes on the site include a stylish apartment in London's Hackney Wick and a five-bedroom stone villa in Tuscany.

"In this era of almost infinite choice, we need a new system to help customers choose the best for them," said Plum Guide's co-founder and CEO, Doron Meyassed.

One lucky Dezeen reader will win a £500 voucher to use towards any Plum Guide home in any location.

Plum Guide has vetted and approved thousands of holiday homes since its launch, including cottages in the British countryside, London townhouses, family homes in Stratford-upon-Avon and Parisian pieds-à-terre.

Each of the platform's vacation rentals is put through a test, which includes identifying candidate homes through proprietary AI, interviewing hosts, and sending home critics to visit and test nominated houses in-person.

A set of 150 design and operational criteria make up the Plum Test, including shower pressure to kitchen design, with only the top three per cent of homes in each price bracket going on to win the Plum Guide Award.

Plum Guide uses a price checking algorithm to ensure customers won't find the homes listed on its site cheaper on another platform.

Plum Guide was founded in London in 2016 by Doron Meyassed and Imran Arshed. The brand has since expanded to thousands of destinations across the globe and strives to "take the headache and anxiety out of booking a home".

This competition is now closed. Terms and conditions apply. One reader will win a £500 voucher towards any Plum Guide home in any location. A winner will be selected at random and notified by email. The voucher is redeemable until 31 March 2023, and can only be used on a single booking.
