For over 10 years we’ve been working with our friends Link Community Development, the charity responsible for running the UK’s best and biggest sponsored hitch-hike. Since 1992, an incredible 8,000 Hitchers have safely and successfully hitch-hiked across Europe, raising almost £4,000,000 for Link and travelling a combined total of 10 million miles – which is more than 400 times around the world!

This year there’s two itineraries on offer:

Morocco: 1,200 miles, 7 days, 4 countries

Dive into an intoxicating blend of Arabic, African and European influences.

Croatia: 900 miles, 6 days, 7 countries

Explore the land of a thousand islands – a haven of idyllic beaches and crystal clear waters.

Whichever destination you choose, each Hitch offers an unforgettable travel experience and one which will leave you with tales for years to come.

When is it? Anytime between 15 March to 28 April 2013.

How much does it cost? Rough Guides fans have the chance to register for just £18 (normally £22). Once you’ve registered you’ll be sent your Hitch Pack containing your Hitch T-shirt, fundraising advice, sponsorship forms and information about Morocco/Croatia! Register here and use the promo code ‘ROUGHGUIDES’ to get your discount.

Who can join in? You have to be 18 or over and go in a group of two or three, with at least one male in each group.

‘The Hitch was one of the most rewarding, enriching and unforgettable experiences of my life – I feel ready for anything now!’

Rebecca, Keele University
