CHICAGO, March 25, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CheapTickets.com launches "Trelfies," a new feature that allows travelers to submit their most memorable travel selfies in a variety of categories. Whether relaxing on a tropical beach, trying a new adventure with the family or hitting up a hot nightclub, CheapTickets.com wants travelers to submit their best vacation trelfies, and for a limited time, have a chance to win a vacation.1

"It's been reported that 90 percent of photos taken with mobile phones are now selfies," said Brian Wolf, general manager of CheapTickets.com.2 "We want to tap into all of those memorable moments and fun trelfies that travelers are taking on their vacations and pass on some of that adventure and travel inspiration to other customers."

Submit a trelfie now. Here's how:

1. Take a trelfie (travel selfie) while on a spring getaway, or from a past vacation.
2. Upload the picture at www.cheaptickets.com/features/trelfies/.
3. Pick a category (Beach/Pool, Group, Clubbing, Road Trip or Adventure), and pin it on the interactive world map.
4. Share the trelfie via Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

Good news cheapsters, through April 13 the five top-voted trelfies in each category will win three round-trip flights plus $250 in CheapCash – the currency of CheapTickets.com – which can be used on the site or in the mobile app to book tens of thousands of hotels around the world.
