Lonely Planet South Australia South Australia Starter Kit Competition

Here are the terms and conditions that apply to Lonely Planet’s South Australia Starter Kit Competition. Please read them carefully, as they contain important stuff you should know.

Who’s running the show?

The promoter is Lonely Planet Publications Pty Ltd of The Maltstore Level 3, 551 Swanston Street, Carlton, Victoria 3053. Our friends at South Australia Tourism Commission, Level 3, 121-125 King William Street, Adelaide, South Australia 5000, are our promotional partner.

Information about the prizes and how to enter form part of these conditions of entry. By entering the promotion, these conditions of entry apply to your entry. Any changes to these conditions of entry will be subject to regulatory approval published on the competition entry page www.lonelyplanet.com/south-australia-start-kit.

These conditions of entry are governed by the laws of Australia.

Can I play?

This promotion is open only to legal residents of Australia aged 18 years or older at the commencement date of the promotion. The laws in some places don’t allow Lonely Planet to run this promotion, in which case the promotion and these conditions of entry are void in those places. Also, you can’t enter this promotion if you (or your immediate families or housemates) are employed by Lonely Planet, South Australia Tourism Commission, or their subsidiaries and affiliated companies.

How do I play?

To enter, go to www.lonelyplanet.com/south-australia-starter-kit and complete the entry form and include your name, email and country of residence. You don’t have to buy anything to enter. You can enter between 12.00 (midday) AEST on 15th August 2017 and 12.00 (midday) AEST on 30th September 2017. You can only enter once ‑ we’ll make confetti out of any extra entries you submit. Your entry is received at the time Lonely Planet receives it. Incomplete and invalid entries will not be accepted. If your entry gets lost in cyberspace or doesn’t arrive for any other reason, that’s not Lonely Planet’s fault.

Lonely Planet might have to extend the dates of the promotion but only if it’s totally unavoidable (for example, if the competition entry page is unavailable for 24 hours or more) and subject to regulatory approval - and we’ll let you know if we do.

How do you pick the winner?

The winner will be determined by a random draw of all eligible entries. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. This unenviable task will happen in a small, dark room at The Malt Store, Level 3, 551 Swanston Street, Carlton, Victoria 3053, at 8am AEDT on 2nd October 2017. The draw is random and so no correspondence will be entered into.

Lonely Planet reserves the right to disqualify any entrant who has engaged in unlawful or improper conduct that is designed to jeopardise the fair conduct of the promotion or is generally damaging to the reputation of Lonely Planet, or has otherwise breached these conditions of entry (as determined in Lonely Planet’s sole discretion, subject to any direction/s given by any relevant regulatory authority).

Lonely Planet can cancel or modify the promotion (subject to regulatory approval) if there are compelling technical or administrative reasons which we cannot control. If that happens, Lonely Planet will conduct the draw from all eligible entries received at that time.

What can I win?

First prize consists of: one (1) trip for two (2) people (winner and guest) to Adelaide, South Australia - provided by South Australia Tourism Commission, including:

  • Return economy flights for two adults rom an Australian domestic airport (approximate retail value $1,000 AUD, depending on the winner’s place of residence);
  • Accommodation for four (4) nights at the Majestic Roof Garden Hotel (standard room, twin share), 55 Frome Street, Adelaide, South Australia 5000 (approximate retail value $1,000.00 AUD);

  • One (1) Jacob’s Creek sensory experience (for two people) including 2-course lunch (approximate retail value $160.00 AUD); AND
  • One (1) car hire for 5 days from Budget (approximate retail value $150.00 AUD).

Total prize value is approximately $2,500 AUD. These prize values are accurate at the start of the promotion.

Winner and guest must travel together and share the same itinerary. All travel is subject to availability and must be booked by 1 December 2017 and all travel must be completed by 31 March 2018.

How do I find out if I won?

We’ll give the winner the good news by email and their name(s) will be published on Lonely Planet’s Facebook page and Lonely Planet’s Twitter page on 10th October 2017. If you’re riddled with curiosity, send an email to social@lonelyplanet.com (including the name of the promotion) within 3 months of the date of the draw, and we’ll respond and tell you who won.

Lonely Planet will do its best to find the winner. But if we can’t, or if the winner hasn’t accepted the prize by 8th January 2018, a redraw will be conducted at 8am AEDT on 9th January 2018 (at the same place as the original prize draw). The winner of the redraw will be notified within 2 business days of the redraw, and their name will be published on Lonely Planet’s Facebook and Twitter pages on 15th January 2018.

If you do win…

We may ask you to provide proof of identify, residency and age, so that we are sure you are who you say you are, and are eligible to receive the prize. We’ll decide whether the proof you provide is adequate (but generally speaking, a certified copy of your passport or drivers’ licence will be sufficient). If you can’t provide, or refuse to provide, suitable proof, then unfortunately you will be disqualified, and we will choose another winner (subject to the direction of regulatory authorities).

You can’t exchange the prize for cash, or ask us to give it to someone else (not that you’d want to!). We will use reasonable efforts to award the prize as described but if, due to unforeseen circumstances, we are unable to do that, we’ll substitute it either for cash or another prize of comparable value, but we’ll decide which.

You’ll be responsible for all taxes, insurance, costs associated with delayed or cancelled travel, and any other expenses, fees and costs connected with that prize that are not included in the prize description.

If, in order to take the prize, you’re lucky enough to need a valid passport and/or other necessary travel documentation and visas, you’ll need to sort those out for yourself (including finding out what documents you need).

You are responsible for your use of the prize, including complying with any applicable terms and conditions of use including South Australia Tourism Commission’s terms and conditions (http://tourism.sa.com/assets/documents/Media/Purchase_Order_Terms_Conditions_v2.pdf). Of course, if you win a prize, you’ll be good and comply with all relevant laws, rules and regulations.

Please note that the nature of the prize may be such that it poses health or safety risks, or risks normally associated with travel to you and your guest (where the prize allows you to take a guest). For this reason, you and your guest should consider any health, safety and travel risks and take appropriate precautions (including arrange insurances) to guard against those risks.

Lonely Planet is not responsible for use of the prize which results in:

(a)        loss that was not reasonably foreseeable;

(b)        loss that was not caused by our breach of this deed or by our negligence;

(c)       business losses (such as lost data, lost profits or business interruptions) or loss suffered by non-consumers;

(d)       losses caused by factors which could reasonably be considered to be outside our control (such as faults in third party equipment, or delayed or cancelled flights); and

(e)       any loss caused, or contributed to, by your breach of conditions of entry or your negligence.

What happens to my entry?

You agree that all of your entry is your own work.

Lonely Planet and its promotional partners will only use the personal information contained in your entry to conduct the promotion and award the prize (but if you’ve told Lonely Planet that you want to receive stuff from us and/or our promotional partners, we’ll use your personal information for that too). If you win a prize, Lonely Planet can use your name and photograph for future marketing purposes unless you tell us not to. We will keep your personal information in accordance with Lonely Planet’s privacy policy at http://www.lonelyplanet.com/legal/privacy-policy and South Australia Tourism Commission’s privacy policy at http://www.tourism.sa.gov.au/privacy.aspx and http://tourism.sa.gov.au/privacy-statement.
