If you're in your 20s, you can win a free trip every year until you're 30

True story.

Anna Ben Yehuda

Ah, to be 20, wild and free. Turns out, youth also bestows you the chance to win a free trip every single year of your life until you turn 30. Travel site CheapTickets is, in fact, leading a new contest aptly named "travel in your 20s," hoping to spur folks to make up for all the trips they couldn't take in 2020. 

RECOMMENDED: A new 100-mile hiking trail in Texas will connect Austin and San Antonio

You have to be between the ages of 20 and 29 to participate in the contest, which you can enter right here. A quick note: submissions will officially be accepted between February 22 and March 13.

In addition to your basic information, expect to answer questions the likes of: Would you rather wake up in a foreign country without your wallet or wake up without your passport and phone? What is the trip you most want to take before you turn 30? If you win, how will you decide where to travel to every year?

Specifically, the one lucky winner will receive $5,000 each year to travel so, depending on your age, expect to be treated to a budget between $5,000 and $50,000 before you hit 30. Sweet indeed.
