You can now test how high your travel FOMO levels are

Ah, European summer season. Where Instagram goes from a place of happiness and frivolity to a dark and depressing smorgasbord of travellers bragging through their holiday snaps.

It’s not our fault we spent all our savings buying cute outfits for our dogs and can’t afford to be in sunny Europe right now!

Ok, so maybe it is our fault, but that doesn’t mean we should have to suffer seeing everyone else having fun in sunny Europe while we freeze our butts off in Sydney.

If your FOMO levels are as high as ours are right now you’re going to want to do something about it before they get dangerously high.

How do you know if they’re dangerously high? Well, the kind folk over at Contiki have got you covered with their new FOMO quiz to let you know how seriously you need to book a holiday.

Will you make it through the rest of the European Summer onslaught without the armour of a trip planned for 2019? Probably not! Do you need to book one asap? Spoiler alert: you probably do!

Contiki Europe FOMO (1)

Contiki’s here to diagnose those levels and help you beat FOMO for real as you watch your mates eat their weight in gyros and soak up the sun boating through Croatia (I mean come on!). You don’t deserve to be stuck bored at your desk or freezing at the bus stop. It’s time to manage the dreaded FOMO with Contiki’s 3- step program.

1. Unsubscribe from Temptation – If you can’t see your friend’s picturesque shots of a European Summer you won’t feel so damn BAD. Simply remove and block them from your life (err Instagram) to decrease your FOMO.

2. Call the helpline – To speak to a FOMO expert, call Contiki’s helpline to talk you through the disappointment of not being in Europe right now.

3. Book a trip for 2019 – The easiest and best way to overcome your FOMO is to get in first for next year. Act fast with the first release of Contiki’s sell-out European trips with best prices guaranteed and 10% off. You’re welcome.

Diving into sparkling turquoise seas off with your besties or stuffing yourself stupid with gelato in Rome sounds like the perfect antidote to us.

Give your friends a taste of their own medicine and start planning your Insta posts now. You’ll be the main culprit haunting everyone’s Instagram next year. Cheers to that!
