Get Started - Travelwest Challenge 2019

Start logging your journeys to win great days out with prizes including a hot air balloon ride, top-level local sporting events and local family attractions with the Travelwest Challenge.

The Challenge runs from  10 June -  21 July 2019.  Visit this page to see the prizes up for grabs.

Taking part in the challenge is easy!

  1. Download the BetterPoints app from the App Store or Google Play store.

  2. Tap “Sign up” in the app, and fill out the form.

  3. You will be automatically eligible to join the Travelwest Challenge programme due to your postcode. There will be a welcome message about this on your timeline in the app.

  4. Click the programmes tab in your app and join the programme, adding your place of work from the list.

Now you’re all ready to start recording your journeys! Please answer the Baseline survey by clicking the play button in the upper right-hand corner and answering our short 4 question survey to earn your first prize draw ticket.

If you’d prefer to let the app detect your activities, just turn on automatic tracking. This will detect your walking, running and cycling journeys and mark all vehicle journeys as 'In Vehicle'.  All bus, train and tram journeys can be selected by you after you've been stationary for a while. You can also record these manually without interfering with your automatic tracking- just make sure to stop your activity once you've arrived at your destination.

Using active tracking will not affect the apps ability to detect and award your walking, running and cycling. These will appear after being validated on the app (usually within an hour of completion.)

If your home postcode falls outside of the area for the Travelwest Challenge, but you work within the West of England area, please join with referral code TWCOA2019 and then choose your organisation.

Travelwest Challenge: 10th June – 21st July

Starting on Monday 10th June, you can start recording your journeys! The Travelwest Challenge runs for six weeks.

For every journey you record using the app, you'll be entered you into our FREE prize draw to win fantastic days out in the West of England and win high street shopping vouchers.
