Vida launches intermediary competition


Eight winners will be able to pilot Concorde in the world’s only Concorde simulator.

Vida Homeloans has launched a new competition giving intermediaries the opportunity to fly Concorde.

Winners will be able to pilot Concorde in the world’s only Concorde simulator, where they can take off, fly and land the iconic aircraft at four major airports.

The Concorde Experience, on the 50th Anniversary since the aircraft first took to the skies, also gives winners and runners up the opportunity of a tour round the passenger airliner by ex-Concorde flight personnel.

To win a place at the event, intermediaries need to answer five multiple choice questions online. Entries with correct answers will be placed into the prize draw and eight intermediaries will be selected at random, with 22 runners up invited to the VIP tour.

Louisa Sedgwick, director of mortgage sales at Vida Homeloans, commented: “Concorde was an iconic brand, offering a specialist product, a world class service and unrivalled speed. At Vida we aim to emulate these same traits by offering unique propositions, a first-class service, and delivering speed and service through innovation. Vida’s head office is based close to Heathrow, so we also feel a local connection to Concorde’s origins.

“At Vida, intermediaries are central to our business and we are continuously looking at ways to demonstrate our commitment to delivering the best possible solutions for them and their customers. That’s why we’ve planned this unique event, aiming to educate intermediaries on the specialist mortgage market and to give them a day they won’t forget.”
