ON THE WINGS OF LOVEThe winners of the Victor and Uber Ultimate Valentine’s Day Getaway reveal how it was for them
Last weekend Victor teamed up with Uber to fly three lucky couples away for a Valentine’s celebration like no other in New York City. Anyone taking an Uber ride in one of 52 East Coast cities between 8am and 8pm on Friday 12th February was in with a chance of winning an all-expenses-paid trip to the Big Apple.
The lucky winners were Jayna and Reggie, a doctor and a lawyer from Memphis; Patti and Brittany, a mother and daughter from Rhode Island; and Greg and Taylor, college buddies from Baltimore. Come Saturday morning, a Citation CJ, a Hawker 400XP and a Pilatus PC-12 – all of them replete with the latest issue of Victor Magazine – took off from their respective cities bound for Teterboro, NYC’s airport of choice among private jet travellers.
For Jayna, the best part of the trip was “flying in perfect skies Saturday morning, anticipating this surreal experience with the man I love”, and it’s hard to think what could be more romantic. According to Brittany, “Within a minute of being in the Uber, the phone rang and you were telling me I won, so it was a whirlwind.” A few minutes more and the Victor app was sending her – and the other winners – notifications of their once-in-a-lifetime, upcoming trips. Like the other couples, she found it hard to comprehend: “At first I didn’t think it was real. I never win anything. So I didn’t really believe it until we pulled up and saw the jet.”
As if private jet travel was not enough, the prize also included ground transfers in special Uber Upgrade Your Vday vehicles, an overnight stay at the Gansevoort Hotel in the heart of the Meatpacking District, a day of pampering at Exhale Spa, and a $2,500 shopping spree uptown at Saks Fifth Avenue. Dinner was taken care of on Saturday courtesy of NYC’s premier American eatery, The Chester, before Sunday’s big blowout at legendary chef Mario Batali’s Del Posto, where each couple enjoyed a five-course Valentine’s Day Dinner with wine pairings and a private tour – described by Taylor as “something else”. So how would he top the experience? “I’d have to win the lottery next year!”
The seamless, on-demand connection between Uber ride and Victor flight whisked winners away to their Valentine’s weekends in the quick, convenient, stress-free style that both brands have become known for. Whether it’s a special occasion or an everyday trip, service like this is something everyone can fall in love with.
