LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 17, 2012) - TripInsurance.com (www.TripInsurance.com), the most trusted online resource to help travelers find the trip coverage they need, today announced the start of its second "Conquer the World" sweepstakes, giving Facebook fans and Twitter followers a chance to win a $5,000 cash prize for a dream vacation trip or one of 50 "ultimate travel" duffel bags. The "Conquer the World" Sweepstakes starts today and will continue through August 27 at 11:00 a.m. PT.

This latest social media sweepstakes follows close on the heels of the first "Conquer the World" sweepstakes which ended June 25. Ronda Gorman of Illinois was the winner of the $5,000 grand prize, which she plans to use to take her family on a literary tour of the United Kingdom:

"My family is looking forward to traveling to England and Scotland for a Most Magical Journey influenced by the beloved Harry Potter novels," Gorman said. "And also tossing in a few Sherlock Holmes sites, too, for a rabid fan also. What can I say? Teaching your children to read will give them the world!"

"We are delighted that TripInsurance.com has been able to help the Gorman family take their dream vacation to England and Scotland, and we wanted to give another lucky family a chance to take their own dream trip before the summer was out," said Dan Skilken, founder and CEO of TripInsurance.com. "This sweepstakes is our small way of rewarding our customers and loyal followers by helping them pay for a summer getaway, or giving them a chance to win a terrific travel bag."
